Total Recall is back and the trailer gives almost as much away as the 1990 version. Looks like Paul Verhoeven’s psychedelic pre-Starship Troopers colour scheme is out the air tight window for the standard gun metal grey filter the future’s always in nowadays. And Harold of Harold and Kumar looks like he’s gone up in the world.
As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on. Is it even on Mars?! Aw, Man…
For those of you still pining for the original here’s the 1990 version for you.
With all the excitement about The Avengers, it’s easy to forget that there is a new Spider-Man movie coming out this year. With his contract with Sony keeping Spidey isolated from his Marvel buddies and with Sam Rami and co long gone, the franchise seems to have found itself in the unlikely position of underdog in the battle of the super hero blockbusters. If their new trailer is anything to go by, Sony will be banking on a new, darker style and the charisma of lead man, Andrew Garfield, to keep the web slinger in the A list.
There’s nothing blowing me away about this movie so far but after being so very wrong about X-Men: First Class last year, I’m gonna keep my mouth shut until it’s out on July 4th.
