Video: “Total Recall” trailer

posted at 8:44 pm on April 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

Is it fair to compare a remake to the original if the remake isn’t really a remake? Like the ’90 version of TR, this is based on a story by Philip K. Dick. According to Wikipedia, the political subtext of this flick is truer to Dick’s work than the Schwarzenegger version was; on the other hand, Colin Farrell insists that it’s not a straight adaptation. Either way, I don’t know what they’re thinking trying to outdo a Paul Verhoeven movie on the same subject. He’s not considered a “great” director but his sci-fi style is so distinct — joyously lurid and hyperviolent, inviting you to gawk like you’re at a freak show — that there’s no way to watch something like this, as impressive as it seems, and not feel like it’s generic. Toss a larger-than-life character like Ahnuld in there for comparison and the new version starts to seem even more watered down. Oh look, another dystopian Blade Runner-ish space adventure whose major plot points we already know or can easily guess. Meh.

As long as they are already remaking the movies made from his books, how ’bout remaking that horrible version they did of “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”.

cozmo on April 3, 2012 at 8:55 PM

There are so many classic moments in the original, a remake will be nothing but disappointing.

Notable highlights:
-”Consider this a divorce.”
-Sharon stone in her prime
-Arnold in his prime
-Mutant breasts (YKWITA)

I could go on, but I’ll never top the mutant breasts….

Vaguely, but it has no where near the cult following of that other work.

This feels almost shot-for-shot.

It didn’t have to. All Wiseman did was change the window dressing.

Until we see Mars.

But even then, Wiseman admitted to including the three-boobed hooker because she’s become synonymous with the movie.

These 80′s movie re-makes have been going on far too long now. Dear gawd, are there any writers left in Hollywood? Do the studio execs sit around a boardroom table going down the list, crossing off each one as they’re re-hashed with CGI?

It’s at the point where you have to differentiate between the original and the re-make when you mention a title. Granted, movies have been re-made, re-worked, and the dreaded “directors cut” for a long time. Just seems there’s a lot more of them these days than ever before.

JetBoy on April 3, 2012 at 9:08 PM

WeekendAtBernankes on April 3, 2012 at 8:59 PM

Scott said he never wanted the Decker narration. It was stupid. So was the dove. For example, the Roy Batty soliloquy with the narration just insulted the intelligence of the audience like no other movie. The directors cut was, as you said, the best.

hawkdriver on April 3, 2012 at 9:11 PM

I always confuse Total Recall with The Running Man, I guess due to Arnold. I guess we should expect a sequel to The Running Man, soon, too, now that I think of it…I’m not too impressed with this, probably because Collin Farrell bugs the crap out of me.

Tell me about it. Zero creativity.

Hey.. question… how come it was only ever way back in the dark days of America that people were creative? Weird isn’t it? I mean, back when the country was more Christian, when we had God in schools, marriages were stronger, before the sexual revolution and all .. how come it was only those people who made original movies, theater and products? Take even things like Coke, Pepsi, Hershey candy bars, the light bulb, toothpaste and so on.. way back when we were all so afraid of not having health care and had no unemployment and no welfare… how come it was then when people were so creative? How come is was all those backwards people who lived way back then that built all the dams, created super highways and things like the steam engine and TV?

Really has me scratching my head. You’d think with all of our progress in social welfare and government regulations and food stamps and social justice and the TSA and animal rights and wars on obesity and all the other wonderful things we’ve achieved the past 100 years.. that we’d have all this creativity today in the arts and entertainment and industry. I just can’t figure it all out.

Also, apparently Mika has a book out (who know) – I guess it is called Know Your Value or whatever, apparently aimed at women, maybe sort of self-esteemy or something?

That’s rich coming from Mika – her value is entirely based upon her daddy’s last name. If not for that she’d be lying in a gutter drinking Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill.

kjl291 on April 3, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Yeah and it has horrible unrealistic CGI action/fight sequences. I’ll pass.

bictech on April 3, 2012 at 8:50 PM

Exactly. There comes a point where the “action” stops being exciting and becomes instead increasingly annoying through its shear physical impossibility. Almost all recent and current movies suffer from this flaw. When I see someone fly across the room and hit a wall with force sufficient to crush their ribcage and they simply get up and turn around to fight some more (which I don’t anymore, because I stopped watching movies like that a while ago), I just get irritated.

I am also less than impressed with the proto-Stormtrooper uniforms that the bad guys are wearing. With one of the same complaints: if it doesn’t stop bullets, why do they make you wear it at all? Criminy, even a Kevlar vest would be better protection.

The Schwarzenegger/Verhoeven movie might have been hyper-violent and less than faithful to the original story, but it was more “realistic” and enjoyable than this piece of drivel. If this is now what studio execs do to earn their lavish perks and exorbitant salaries, they can be replaced by a relatively simple piece of software, just as actual action has been replaced by CGI.

Are you kidding? Personally I thought it looked awful, those action sequences looked like something taken from a video game… a few years out of date.

I’ve read the short story and personally I prefer the Ahnuld movie a lot more (surprisingly, I’ve found that I enjoy a lot of PKD’s writing better in movie-form). This trailer doesn’t look like it has much of anything from the original story.

They could always go back and do a faithful adaptation of The Running Man. Well, aside from the ending which Hollywood would never put to film. The main character flies a plane into a skyscraper.

As for Total Recall, it seems like an utter waste of time. The Ahnuld version was terrific. Verhoeven back when he was still at the top of his game right after Robocop(which is also being remade). Hollywood is officially out of ideas. And to add insult to injury, they’re dumbing everything down to PG-13 for the kiddies.

I’ve found a good compromise on that front; rarely do I see anything in the theater that’s released in 3-D and only if it’s really something I’m curious about, I usually forget about renting it when it finally does come out on dvd :P

I totally forgot the ending to the Running Man book, I read it years and years ago, thanks for the reminder! I agree this film seems to be a waste of time, and it’s pretty pointless IMO that they’re remaking Robocop, too (which I also didn’t know about). I went to a movie this weekend (first time in years), and sitting through the endless previews, I realized all the movies today are almost interchangeable…they all look the same, and yes, the target audience for all of them seems to be teenagers…Hollywood had better come up with some new ideas, soon…

dentarthurdent on April 3, 2012 at 9:40 PM

It depends on the movie. A lot of the post-conversions look awful because the director never intended the movie to be seen in 3D(Clash of the Titans, Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, Thor) and the studios spend almost no time on the conversion process. There are exceptions like Captain America which had a decent 3D conversion, but most look like ass.

The ones shot natively in 3D however can be spectacular if done right. Hugo looked amazing in the format.

But even then, Wiseman admitted to including the three-boobed hooker because she’s become synonymous with the movie.

1. Now I will have to see the remake as that was one of the defining moments of my 13th year of life.

2. This thread seemed to get a little off the rails talking about things NOT related to how many boobs (yes, when they are large and fake they can only be referred to as boobs, not breasts) are on the hot mutant lady. If some commenters (you know who you are) continue to try to discuss things NOT related to the boobies I will be forced to request that this thread be shut down…

Are they doing a remake of Hunger Games yet?

Piker.

That’s me. Besides the suppressor changes the balance and I have to concentrate more.

It’s actually a reboot/prequel

The Mildly Peckish Games.

Mildly OT:

I watched that Bradley Cooper movie Limitless and found it fairly decent. My standards for movies are pretty low these days, just make it mildly interesting, mildly different, mildly entertaining, or whatever and I’m fine with it.

It was based on a book call The Dark Fields (which has since been renamed Limitless too, go figure. The book was pretty good, and the movie tracks along with it quite closely, except the ending of the book takes a much darker turn.

Check it out.

Maybe you’re not even really typing comments on a Conservative website thread. Maybe you’re sitting in a chair at a Recall office and the bad guys are getting ready to bust in and stop the injection. What are you going to do then, huh?

See the brass.

Be, the brass.

Total Recall was, as AP says, a silly freak show. The humor was the same as camp theater … so stupid it was funny.

This looks like it is ten times better and give me Farrell over Ahnud any day, and Kate Beckinsale (instead of that skank Stone) and Biel instead of Rachel Ticotin? Please.

I’m all in.

Yeah – maybe all of those memories of teh boobehs are really just IMPLANTED memories of teh boobehs!

That just blew my mind!

kjl291 on April 3, 2012 at 10:18 PM

You know they’re remaking Robocop, right?

catmman on April 3, 2012 at 8:56 PM

Detroit is falling apart. Very soon they’re going to need a real Robocop.

As for Total Recall, I found the Ahnold film fun but cheesy. The original Philip K. Dick story, like much of his work, was concerned with identity and layers of reality. If they try to do a serious treatment, there’s a chance this remake could be a better film. I’m willing to wait for the reviews.

Implanted memories or not I am keeping them…you cant have them…*my precioussss*

With a whole new generation of kids that have never seen the orig this, if done right, will be a great story. (BIG “if”).

Heh, better find some cover. The lady from last time keeps goading me. I think I’ll take the bait this time.
