Trailer actually looks ok - then again, it is Total Recall.

Looks like it might be taking itself a wee bit too seriously; I'm betting there are no triple-breasted whores in this version.

Could be interesting, wondering if they dropped the whole mars angle and are just going for a mindfuck adventure movie.  Also, CGI fight scenes look like shit.

Yeah, can't say I'm overly excited about this. Might be more interested if it didn't star Farrell.

Before I watched the trailer I saw that as Ferrell. I screamed a little.

Different type of movie, of course, but Colin Farrell really redeemed himself with In Bruges for me. There is still hope.

Dear God, why?  It hasn't even been that long, has it?

Because budgets are so inflated and the stakes are so high that Hollywood is totally risk averse.  We've been over it before here and you can find any number of creative people who say the same thing and explain it's why they're doing the latest remake/ sequel/ leaving the industry.

Why did Rob Zombie do Halloween?  Nobody wanted to fund his other movies.  Why is Kevin Smith making this latest movie his last?  He is sick of design by focus group instead of storytelling.  Why are we getting a Spiderman Reboot 10 years after the original? Because new projects are risky and that one has a track record of several hundred millino dollars.  Why will there be a Transformers 4 (Announced in Feb, 2012 for 2014) and possibly 5 despite Michael Bay sucking horribly?  Because the 3rd movie is the #4 all-time grosser and combined the movies ALONE have made 2.6 BILLION dollars.

If you ever have to ask, "why," in regards to a movie; just know that's the answer.

It's a fantastic movie, and proved to me that Farrell could act. He just annoys the piss out of me. I think I'm still annoyed at SWAT.

So, the movie is either Chuck + Bourne Identity or...

The whole thing takes place in the Rekall facility.

I didn't have a problem with Affleck as Murdoch.  Though I do have a problem with him in general.

Farrell and Affleck did fine with the material they had in Daredevil, and the director's cut absolutely made the movie better (from like a 2.5 stars to 3.5 stars maybe). But the writing was terrible, the direction pedestrian and the fact that Sony didn't even want him in a costume until midway through filming so they had to go back in and digitally enhance the color on the costume to make it look like a costume instead of some leathers should tell you all you need to know about why it wasn't very good. Also, see the Ghost Rider movies for why the director is a hack and thankfully wasn't allowed to do Preacher for HBO.

I saw ads for this during the NBA finals. As I was watching the build up, I was like, "Are you kidding me? This looks exactly like the plot of Total Recall."

Then, I saw it was Total Recall. And I went  Facepalm

We're already remaking movies that are barely 20 years old now? What's next? Remaking Goodfellas? Silence of the Lambs? Se7en?

Of course not.

We'll remake all the 10-year-old movies first.

I think there are different rules for comic book movies.

Unless Total Recall was a comic first, and I didn't know about it. I've never watched the Spidermans.

Total Recall was a short story.  The only comic book I've ever seen is the adaptation of the movie.

The funny thing about the movie is all the stuff that happens on Mars is implied. The short story ("We Can Remember it for you Wholesale" by PKD) is sort of a O. Henry story rooted in the concept rather than the action.
