New 'Total Recall' Rekall Viral Ads Found in Public - Are More Coming?
"Tell us your fantasy. We'll make it real." Isn't that kind of false advertising, if it's not true? Well, who cares, these are out anywhere. Sony has been planting some viral marketing in public for Len Wiseman's upcoming Total Recall remake, which has been gaining a lot of buzz from the trailers. Silas from SuperHeroHype doesn't say where exactly these were found, besides in Hollywood, but he found two posters that link to the Welcome to Rekall website, which we've already known about for some time. That Rekall site is just a callback service, collecting phone #s while returning a message. It's at least neat to see some ads out there.
The images come from SuperHeroHype. Hopefully we see more than just these appear around the country.
Update: Another batch of ads were found by ComingSoon. This time they feature the same Rekall fantasy text, but different imagery - one a boat party theme, the other walking on the moon (I guess?). Check them:
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 site and watch the trailer.
We'll definitely let you know if we find or see any more of these kind of ads in public. I'm curious if they'll do a wider push or if it's just a few targeted ads like these. Let us know if you find any others out there?
Update #2: I've also been informed that the actual WelcometoRekall.com viral website that all of this links to has been updated, and now contains a completely different menu with more detail options. If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check it out, as all of these Rekall posters tie directly in with that viral website.

I'v been seeing Rekall adverts for a while now. All in London. Some on tube and some in Metro newspaper. They have different imaginaries on them though.
