The new Total Recall trailer is very cool and actually changed my mind about this movie. I think it could be good, and not simply because it was shot in Toronto last year. Here is a link to watch it.
Total Recall is a strange choice for a remake. After all, the first one came out in 1990. Was that really such a long time ago? And I think it was pretty damn good; one of Arnold’s last best action movies. What more could be done with it now?
But the trailer answers the question of why in a very clever way. It opens with lines that are, in many cases, word-for-word of the original. So as I started watching the trailer, my biggest fears were confirmed. At least that’s what I thought until the trailer takes a huge detour from the Arnold version that left me thinking there could be something to it after all. I am psyched!
