‘Total Recall’ Teaser Trailer

I guess this should really be called the Total Recall Trailer Teaser Trailer, because once again this is essentially a trailer for a trailer. But at thirty seconds, this clip features enough footage to count as a standalone teaser. The full Total Recall trailer, showing off what director Len Wiseman has done with Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Bryan Cranston, will be shown during the Celtics/Heat game on ABC Sunday April 1, and will then appear on Apple in extended form.

In the meantime, check out this trailer tease below, and begin your predictions about whether Wiseman’s take on the Paul Verhoeven / Arnold Schwarzenegger film will be a summer gift, or an April Fools prank. Read More »

This weekend, we should get the full trailer for Sony’s remake of Total Recall, in which we’ll see Colin Farrell squaring off against Bryan Cranston and his own identity. But in the meantime an ad has gone online out of Taiwan (seemingly from the Taiwan arm of Sony) that incorporates a lot of Total Recall footage, and you can see it below. This one might not last long, so check it out now. Read More »

All’s been quiet on the Total Recall front as of late. The last post we put up regarding the Len Wiseman-directed reboot starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho, was a few set videos of hover crafts from the film. That was September. Now it’s January, the film is eight months away and Sony has released an official plot synopsis. Though we knew many of these details – i.e. There’s no Mars – it’s still pretty revealing.  Read More »

So many set videos have surfaced from The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel it almost feels like they’re the only three movies currently in production. Obviously, that’s far from the case and another major 2012 event film has just been forced into the set video ring. That movie is Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho. Several photos popped online last month of robots walking around the set and now videos have surfaced that show a bunch of different hovercars on impressive rigs.

These videos, of course, should be considered minor spoilers. Click on the jump to check them out. Read More »

We’ve been following the Total Recall remake for a few years now, wondering what to expect from the retooled adaptation of Philip K. Dick‘s short story. We’ve already covered some of the differences between Len Wiseman‘s new version and Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 film, but a new interview has surfaced indicating that at least one key aspect will stay the same: the new Total Recall will most definitely include an appearance by a three-breasted woman, just as the original Total Recall did.

Over the weekend at the San Diego Comic Con, Sony showed off the first footage from Len Wiseman‘s new version of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell. The director and star appeared on a panel along with Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho to talk about the movie. What we saw positioned the film as, well, very Len Wiseman. The slick style that he displayed in Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard is very much in evidence. The footage was flashy and full of CGI-stitched camera moves that make the action look as much like something out of a game as out of an action movie. We’ve got some thoughts on the presentation and a few new facts about the film after the break. Read More »

First Look: Colin Farrell in ‘Total Recall’

Yesterday we saw the first images of sets for the new Total Recall sets, on them some white-suited troopers. Now we’ve got the first image of Colin Farrell in the lead role of Doug Quaid, a factory worker who learns, or thinks he learns, that he is really a spy for one of two nation states, Euromerica or New Shanghai. See the full image after the break.  Read More »

Len Wiseman‘s big screen adaptation/remake of Total Recall is shooting this week the Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario Canada, and a bunch of set photos have hit the web showing “Federal Police” hover cars, a bunch of extras in futuristic looking trooper costumes, large green screens, and a large 14-foot green beanbag which will probably be replaced by some sort of computer created creature or device. Hit the jump to see the photos for yourself.

How can you have an American Reunion without the guy who brought the phrase “M.I.L.F” to the masses? Probably because he’ll be off planting memories in Colin Farrell. Two big bits of casting were recently revealed as Shannon Elizabeth, who played foreign exchange student Nadia in the first two American Pie movies, has finally signed to appear in the American Pie sequel American Reunion. Another Pie-alum, John Cho, who has had arguably the best career (maybe save for Seann William Scott) of all the people in the series, probably won’t be appearing though because he’s just signed to play McClane, one of the representatives who temps Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) to implant memories in his head in Len Wiseman‘s Total Recall remake.

With an August 2012 release date looming, shooting on Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall is set to begin next week in Toronto. We know that Colin Farrell will be Douglas Quaid and Bryan Cranston will be one of the villains but what of the two ladies in Quaid’s life, so famously portrayed by in the original Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin? Previous reports have now confirmed to be true as Wiseman’s wife, Kate Beckinsale, will be playing Lori, Quaid’s wife in his “normal” life and Jessica Biel will be Rachel, the girl Quaid meets in his spy life. Also just announced is that Bill Nighy, who played a pretty gruesome character in the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, has been cast as Quatto, the leader of the resistance.
