Synopsis: As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on
Release Date: August 3, 2012
Thoughts: A remake to the 1990 Schwarzenegger/Verhoeven sci-fi classic seemed blasphemous at first. The original was a crowd-pleasing box office hit and I just didn’t feel like there was room for another Recall pic to exist. The teaser trailer hit and I was intrigued, now the second trailer has arrived and I’m impressed. Boasting some nice visuals and familiar (but not unwelcome) sequences, the remade Total Recall just moved up a few notches in my “Looking Forward” to summer movie checklist. Colin Farrell scored last August with the Fright Night remake and if all goes as planned he’ll start of August 2012 on top again.
