Welcome to this week's edition of Stranger Things 4 writers' "Video Store Fridays" (VSF) – and in this age of self-quarantining and social distancing, viewing recommendations are needed now more than ever. If you've been here before, you know how this works: five movies that were on the minds of the Netflix series' writers that […]
Horror fans have a lot to look forward to streaming in January. Hulu is adding a ton of films based on the works of Stephen King, including Children of the Corn, Cujo, Silver Bullet, Thinner, The Dead Zone, and more. Not to mention Beetlejuice. Netflix adds The Strangers, The Addams Family, I Know What You […]
Asteroid miners vs. aliens and Jekyll vs. Hyde.
Remember the 1990 fun-fest when Arnold Schwarzenegger had his brain wiped and went to Mars? Prepare to have your memories edited...
Including a way that YOU can get JMS the gig of writing Ghostbusters 3. Perhaps. Kinda.
To open up Sony's session in Hall H this afternoon they've brought back Len Wiseman and co. for their second year of Total Recall hawking. We got under way with a new promo reel running for, we were told, six minutes or so. Some of the footage was familiar, but some was new. What became […]
I saw an extended, but less polished version of this Total Recall scene at Comic-Con last summer. Now, one year on, it's ended up online as part of the broader marketing for the film. There was a version in bootleg form doing the rounds in the interim too, I think. Why do they keep using […]
Total Recall is a Len Wiseman do-over of an Arnold Schwarzengger movie with Kate Beckinsale in a lead role. Talk about being on a hiding to nothing. Having said that, Paul Verheoven's original was far better than anybody should have expected. Will lightning strike twice? I continue to be hopeful. Having Philip K. Dick's original […]
Short but not particularly sweet, this clip from Total Recall premiered on Ellen when Kate Beckinsale was a guest earlier in the week. I'd probably find it easier to review baby food than I would to divine much of specific interest in that clip. It's not just that it's so short, it's also that it's […]
Director Len Wiseman has recorded a pretty much scene-by-scene audio commentary for the Total Recall trailer. Curiously, he leaves a few blank patches even though there's only two minutes and twenty five seconds to fill – but that may be a result of MTV's edit. Movie Trailers – Movies Blog So Wiseman says he wanted […]
Like pretty much everyone, I've been skeptical yet intrigued by the idea of a Total Recall remake — and this first full trailer does a good job of both evoking the original and moving the needle more towards intrigued. Alasdair Stuart does an excellent job of breaking it all down and telling us why we […]
Alasdair Stuart writes for Bleeding Cool. Video: Total Recall – full trailer Welcome to the future! Again! It's 2012 and Total Recall has been remembered for us wholesale by a whole new bunch of film makers. I find it utterly appropriate, and weirdly metatextual, that Len Wiseman's behind the lens on this one. He's ended […]
The most interesting thing in this new motion poster for Total Recall is not the actual motion of Colin Farrell dissipating like a fart on the wind (though we're all very impressed by that), but rather the backdrop for all that hot graphics action. This poster originated over at JoBlo, but it takes a keen-eyed Brit […]
Here's a bit of the upcoming trailer for Total Recall a la Len Wiseman. Like fragments of a memory you haven't had yet – or something like that, eh? Video: Total Recall – promo spot The whole thing will go online this Sunday, if I recall correctly.
The first appearance of this Total Recall clip, as far as I can tell, came watermarked with Comicon at the head. I guess it was being set up for screening at Wondercon this weekend. Most of this footage was amongst the extended, if unfinished, sequence I saw at Comicon last Summer, in fact. All of […]
Though Total Recall has a long way to go, and is estimated to be just half way through production, Len Wiseman and Sony have brought a sequence along to Comic-Con. Apparently comprised of the first footage shot, the scene shows what happens when our protagonist Douglas Quaid, as played by Colin Farrell, goes to Recall […]
It might not have Arnold Schwarzenegger or (other) triple-breasted women, but we now have evidence that the modes of a) fashion and b) transportation in next year's Total Recall remake are going to be pretty spiffy. Take a look at these on-set snaps despatched by Ain't It Cool, which feature mainly futuristic type cop cars and […]
What do you picture when you think about the movie Total Recall? Arnie's eyes bugging out or triple breasts? Sadly we get neither on the covers of Total Recall, the comic book from Dynamite in May. Written by Vince Moore and drawn by Cezer Razek, we do however get a bit of ultraviolence from Boys […]
The new Total Recall, with a script by Equilibrium's Kurt Wimmer and directed by Underworld's Len Wiseman, is now set to finally get rolling in March. Wow. I'm feeling pretty deflated already and I'm only three sentences in. Rarely has a film seemed so uninspiring. Will the casting buoy me? Well, according to The Hollywood […]
