We all loved the 1990 science fiction classic “Total Recall”, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger but will the remake be as good?
Philip K Dicks science fiction novel has become a must read for fans of the genre and the movie that came out of it was excellent as well. The film story line follows Douglas Quaid, a man haunted by dreams of a trip to Mars, he investigates his dreams by taking a trip via “Rekall inc”, a company specializing in the implantation and construction of false of memories. Something goes horribly wrong in the process and he is thrown into another life where he is an secret agent, who’s only mission is to take down a tyrannical Martian dictator. The entire movie leaves you questioning reality and if all of Quaid’s exploits are just fantasy.
The new trailer looks promising, with Colin Ferrell playing the role of Quaid, this remake seems to update the classic with a contemporary style, featuring excellent CGI filled futuristic cities, great costume design, and a ton of action. These are exactly what we would hope to expect from a remake of Total Recall, so i am expecting this movie to be a win for sci fi fans!
