New TV spot for Len Wiseman's Total Recall, plus mash-up trailer!

May. 29, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A new TV spot for the remake of TOTAL RECALL has arrived and features a few bits of new footage, highlighting director Len Wiseman's (UNDERWORLD) hyperactive action style.  Starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, Bokeem Woodbine, and John Cho, the film is both a remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and a new adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale." 

Here's the TV spot:

And, as a bonus, our own JoBlo.com staffer Nick Bosworth created this mash-up video that blends the new trailer audio with video from the 1990 film.  It's a fun concept and gives you an idea of how Verhoeven's film could be marketed today.

Check it out:

And here's the original "new" trailer:

Cool shit.  I'm still baffled that I'm looking forward to seeing this new version as I'm pretty sure I made raspberries with my mouth and rolled my eyes when I heard about the remake.  However, Len Wiseman has assesmbled a kick ass cast and the action looks great, so what can I say? 

TOTAL RECALL starts messing with your head on August 3, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Are there any old school sci-fi flicks you'd like to see remade? One of my favorites is Enemy Mine with Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett, Jr. I'd love to see an updated version of it. You?

Screw the movie, I'm there for the Kate vs Jessica match.

Tidbit: I'd like to see Flash Gordon done right.

I honestly don't usually like remakes but this one might be worthy. BTW, although I know many might get pissed, I would love to have a Highlander movie. The original is a classic, I know.. but the Highlander universe is vast and deserves a serious shot at it.

This looks like a piece of crap. Just call it something else.

I really can't see how an NC-17 movie gets a PG-13 "remake."
