New images from the Total Recall reboot
Ah yes, another bit of news from the Films We Try To Forget Are Happening archive. Len Wiseman’s reboot of Total Recall – the Arnie sci-fi classic based on a short story by Philip K Dick – continues to chug along, and today we’ve been gifted with a few new images of everyone looking very serious. Not a third breast in sight. What a washout.
The 1990 original saw Big Man Schwarzenegger as Douglas Quaid, trapped in a hum-drum existence married to Sharon Stone – we’ve all been there. Deciding to take advantage of Rekall (a company who offer to let their customers escape into a virtual reality), he opts to have the memories of a Mars-based super spy implanted into his brain for a bit of healthy escapism. Needless to say, it doesn’t take long for things to get weird. And for everyone in the film to start trying to kill him.
Anyhoo, this time around it’s Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel who are firing the rounds, with glorious human being Bryan Cranston heading up the supporting cast. It will be fine, is what we’re saying. It will be utterly needless and totally fine.
Yeah. Not THIS, though, is it Colin?
NO-ONE DOES ANGRY PAIN FACE LIKE ARNIE.
