Total Recall continues to be a mixed bag, as far as the general public is concerned. Some people are impressed with the action-packed futuristic world that Die Hard 4 director Len Wiseman has created; while others are still pining for the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger action film.
Today we have the Japanese trailer for Total Recall to share, which plays up more of the sci-fi futuristic angle, and less of the eye candy provided by leading ladies Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale.
Check out the Japanese trailer for Total Recall:
Despite all the back and forth regarding whether or not this new Total Recall deserves to exist, in the end, the greatest disappointment may be in how unremarkable it turns out to be. The filmmakers – Wiseman and writers James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), Kurt Wimmer (The Thomas Crown Affair), and Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) – have said that this new version will stick closer to the source story by sci-fi icon Philip K. Dick than the ’90s version did… But after seeing the trailers, sci-fi action set pieces and Colin Farrell as a hero with fewer one-liners seem to be the order du jour.
Total Recall hits theaters on August 3, 2012.
