Watch: Original 'Total Recall' and Remake Trailer Mash-Up is Great
Mash-up videos are a dime a dozen nowadays, and most of them aren't really worth featuring. But every now and then, someone just nails it to the maximum effect, and it's worth highlighting right here. Such is the case with a spectacular trailer mash-up that a few different readers have sent us which takes footage from Paul Verhoeven's original 1990 sci-film Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but uses the audio track from the full trailer for Len Wiseman's remake starring Colin Farrell. It's a seriously awesome little edit, and some of the lines of dialogue even match-up with the scenes perfectly. Check it out below!
Here's the trailer mash-up of both the original Total Recall and Len Wiseman's remake via JoBlo:
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 Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side. Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and John Cho also star in the film which is headed to theaters on August 3rd, 2012 towards the end of summer. Thoughts?
