First Look: The ‘Total Recall’ Reboot Releases A First Teaser Trailer


Because Hollywood never seems to be able to think up new ideas, the decision was made to remake the 1990 film Total Recall. As you may know, those of you who have seen the original film, the original film starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone. This 2012 remake will star Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale. The full trailer for this Total Recall reboot won’t be out until Sunday … but today we get to check out the teaser trailer for the forthcoming full length trailer. That’s right folks, this reboot is now giving us a trailer for the trailer. Check it out below.

I really loved the original film when it was first released, I’m only kinda marginally interested in seeing this remake. There is another female lead character … Melina. In 1990 she was played by Rachel Ticotin … in this remake she will be played by Jessica Biel. I dunno. I love the classic cheesiness of the original film … this remake already looks too polished. Are any of y’all interested in seeing this film? Is this a remake that you are excited to see?

    I’m a huge fan of the original version. I’m reluctantly curious about the rebooted version. Sure, the computer-generated imagery of today’s cinema is vastly more superior than what the 80’s had to offer, but they did a pretty amazing job with what they had to work with. Swelling heads are pretty awesome. They better not mess this one up.

    I am not a fan of the original. It’s cheesy and not all that considering other Sci Fi epics out there. This one looks like a cross between the Fifth Element, Minority Report and Blade Runner. That’s a win win in my book. This teaser looks great. A million times better than I imagined it would. Len Wiseman knows how make a movie, let’s see him take it to the next level. I mean, Prometheus comes out this year and all other Sci Fi will be compared to it. Better come correct. I’ll see it, yes please.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE cheesy 1980/1990s action movies (Die Hard anyone?). Today’s action movies take themselves way too seriously! Part of the fun of the movies 20 years ago is that they knew parts were cheesy and they played it up. Arnold could always be relied on to deliver those line (ex. “You’re fired” while firing a missile at someone) in a way that made people laugh.
