It’s with some melancholy that I post this trailer. I remember going to see the original at the cinema. I have watched the old version recently and its dated (the 80’s do have a lot to answer for) but there’s a certain charm to Arnie’s poor acting and his one liners.
But the production looks slick on this one and maybe, just maybe, the studios might be taking a sci-fi story a little seriously? And I am sure Damon Lindelof hasn’t been near this one.
I give you Total Recall
Apparently there’s no Mars in this story so it diverges from both the original movie and the Phillip K Dick story its based upon. Though there’s some suggestion that it sticks closer to the original story? Ho they do that without going to Mars I am not sure.
Oh and it won’t be in 3D (woot!)
