Watch: 'Total Recall' Featurette Highlights Impressive Hover Car Chase
The release of the remake of Total Recall is upon us, and while some fans of the original Paul Verhoeven film are a bit upset that we're not getting our ass to Mars with Colin Farrell, the film is still set in a pretty sleek future. Along with that future comes some cool hover cars, and great behind the scenes footage of practical hover cars on movable chassis for some of the big chase scenes. I actually wasn't aware that there was a lot of practical shooting done for these sequences, and once you see how fast these hover cars are zooming around and "beating the living bajeezus out of each other." Seriously, this is a really cool featurette.
Here's the cool hover cars featurette for Len Wiseman's Total Recall from Yahoo:
Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard), is directing this Total Recall remake from a script by James Vanderbilt, Kurt Wimmer & Mark Bomback that is said to be more true to Philip K. Dick's original short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Doug Quaid (Colin Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he's a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side. Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel & John Cho also star in the film, arriving in theaters on August 3rd this summer. Visit the Rekall website, too. Are you in?
