Last Thursday we posted the short teaser for the full length trailer for the new Total Recall movie, due to hit theaters August 3, 2012. The full trailer has finally been released and here it is:
We like seeing John Cho here, the actor who is the new Sulu in the Star Trek franchise and Harold from the Harold and Kumar movies.
Kate Beckinsale seems like an odd choice for the role originally played by Sharon Stone. But we like the idea of Jessica Biel as Quaid’s old spy partner:
The big action sequence after the memory implant seems a bit off, but we can chalk that up to initial trailer-itis–that inability of Hollywood to get their marketing guys to really nail a good preview from the millions of dollars of film footage. Colin Farrell will take some getting used to, filling Arnold Schwartzenegger’s shoes. Still, the cop outfits look great so far:
The trailer looks like this might be a bit in the vein of Paycheck, the Philip K. Dick short story adapted to film starring Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman–and a very fun film at that. Here is the official movie poster for the film:
There seems to be a lull in getting some good sci-fi, fantasy, or superhero movies into the theaters right now. Maybe it’s this crazy early spring but it seems like we’ve been waiting for some new movies for a while now… waiting and waiting… Bring on the summer blockbusters! Avengers isn’t out for another month!
