This Awesome New Total Recall Remake Trailer Shows Colin Farrell Could Actually Be Better Than Schwarzenegger's Original

By Sam Gibbs on at

If the trailers are anything to go by, then the Total Recall remake starring Colin Farrell might amazingly be better than the original. It’s ditched the corny Mars-theme, although it's apparently keeping the triple-boobed prostitute, and instead takes on a look that’s more akin to the sci-fi sheen of Minority Report – if you’re after pulse-racing sci-fi action then it looks set to deliver in droves.

Don’t get me wrong, I quite like the original 1990’s Total Recall; it’s almost a sci-fi classic now, even if it wasn’t exactly hard-core sci-fi action. Total Recall (2012) is set to open on August 22nd meaning we’ve got quite a few potentially awesome summer blockbusters this year, although my money is still on Prometheus taking the crown.
