And how often does that happen?

Star Trek.

Having said that, this is going to blow.

Bryan Cranston as villain and both leading ladies' asses will be the only two reasons I watch this.

Cautiously optimistic. And I like that they're not setting it on Mars. They seem to be making a completely different movie, which is good, because no one can beat Verhoeven at being Verhoeven. If this follows the True Grit model of reboots, it just might be worth watching.

Is the 3 breasted alien going to be in it? Without her, the movie just isn't the same.

Skeptical to quite skeptical, even after the trailer (which underwhelmed me).

Sony Pictures has just released, via iTunes Movie Trailers, a promotional banner for director Len Wiseman's new Total Recall, which hits theaters on August 3. Check it out below!

Adapted by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback, the action thriller stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. The synopsis is as follows:

"Total Recall" is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

Sounds like they're staying closer to the original story. Probably should have just called it "The Memory Wholesalers" or something, to avoid the direct comparison to the Ahnold epic.

I really do hate that it's not being set on Mars.

If they are going to remake it, I think it's better they don't follow the plot of the original wholesale, otherwise what is the point? If it's not on mars there must be significant changes to the plot, which is good. I guess the original movie is old enough that most young people haven't seen it and won't care.

Agreed. Depending on the plot it could actually be decent.
