Colin Farrell Total Recall

The marketing campaign for the Len Wiseman-directed redo of Total Recall is finally ramping up with a teaser trailer set to premiere online this Sunday and today’s release of a brief but interesting video motion poster.

You can check it out here below. [UPDATE: We’ve added the vertical version of the motion poster here below as well.]

The image shows a gun-toting Colin Farrell (in the role played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 movie) breaking into pieces as the tagline “What Is Real?” fades to become “What Is Recall?”, and it all takes place against a futuristic cityscape you’ve seen before in every other science fiction movie made since Blade Runner. I’m getting a Minority Report vibe from the images and footage released so far, but Wiseman isn’t a fraction of the skillful and inventive filmmaker Steven Spielberg is.

I don’t consider the 1990 version of Total Recall to be sacred ground, but Paul Verhoeven’s film is the kind of over-the-top, hard-R B-movie insanity most major studios won’t dare take a chance on these days. God I miss the late 80s/early 90s.

Another thing: if Wiseman and Sony Pictures want their Total Recall to stand on its own, then why did the studio’s marketing department on using the same title font as the 1990 movie?

The Mars-less Total Recall opens on August 3, 2012.
