Colin Farrell Falling Apart on Promo Banner for 'Total Recall' Remake
Yesterday we got a brief tease of the trailer for Len Wiseman's forthcoming remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell which will premiere Sunday during the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics game on Sunday with a longer trailer hitting online sometime that same day. While the practice of having a trailer for a trailer really needs to stop soon, there was already some buzz about the remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1990 sci-fi film, both good and bad. We're still interested to see how this turns out without Mars in the mix (an element more true to the short story that inspired the film), but in the meantime we have new banner below.
Here's the original teaser promo banner for Len Wiseman's remake of Total Recall, posted on Apple:
Update: Here's a "motion poster" for Total Recall, from JoBlo where they have the same official poster:
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. Excited?

I can deal w/o Mars—maybe—so long as the remake includes 6 of the following: 1) Johnny Cab 2) 3 boobs to make me wish I had three hands 3) A glowing nose-ball extractor 4) Colin Farrell screaming "G'AHH!" 5) Sharon Stone cameo 6) Something to the effect of, "Cranston, give those people air!" 7) X-Ray Scanners....oh, wait, the TSA already has this... 7alt) Fat Lady Body-disguise 8) A mutant midget firing a machine gun 9) Kuato 10) Throwing severed hands/Something to the effect of, "See you at the party, ____" nevermind, I'm just gonna watch the original....
