The final trailer for the Len Wiseman remake of Total Recall hit the web last night right as we were at a Press screening of The Amazing Spider-Man (review up real soon) so we’re just now getting to it…you’ve probably already seen it (and all the nods to the original) but here it is again. Still not sold on it, but maybe it’ll be more fun in the theater…enjoy!
The new adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” takes cues from highly stylized big budgets sci-films as you’re bound to see bits of Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Minority Report just to name a few. Also Wiseman has thrown out the alien angle and set this remake against the backdrop of dystopian near-future that and a heavily polluted Earth. Where’s WALL-E when you need him?
Directed by Len Wiseman and sporting quite an A-List roster this remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven classic stars Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawke, John Cho and Bokeem Woodbine. Total Recall is slated for wide release on August 10th, 2012. What do you think Richter? Will we see you at the party??
