The panel for Total Recall, with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, and director Len Wiseman, started the Screen Gems/Sony Panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The remake of the 1990 classic, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, looks to be another summer smash. A new trailer filled with about six minutes of footage showed the unrelenting, action-packed, smash and dash non-stop riveting adventure and vibrant world that the character of Farrell, one Douglas Quaid, gets thrust into by way of Rekall Industries, electrified the crowd in Hall H.
Farrell spoke about filling the large shoes in taking on Arnold’s role; Beckinsale expounded about being tongue in cheek about being incredulous that her husband Wiseman cast her to be a huge “bitch” as she takes on the role originated by Sharon Stone in the original production; Cranston waxed about his character (originated by Ronny Cox in the first film) and working with the film’s principles; Biel spoke about the training process, which involved multitudes of boxing and chicken, and Wiseman talked of making the movie.
Actress Jessica Biel has entered into negotiations to join Hugh Jackman on the cast of The Wolverine, the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Biel would be playing Victoria in the movie, a secretary for Japan’s corrupt minister of justice, as well as Viper (also sometimes known as Madame Hydra in the Marvel universe), a former friend of Wolverine and current lover of Silver Samurai who works for a man trying to take over control of the ninja society the Hand.
Colin Farrell has caught himself in quite a situation. Not only can he not tell what is real and what isn’t but he also has two beautiful women looking for him. One wants to kill him and the other wants to protect him.
A new trailer for Total Recall has appeared online which includes some nods to the Arnold Schwarzenegger-vehicle released in 1990. There’s the familiar circle of light that encompasses the chair, and then there’s the three-breasted woman (which was promised a while back, even with the planned PG-13 rating).
The trailer for the new adaptation of Total Recall (I hesitate to use the term “remake” since this movie, much like Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 movie, is based on Philip K. Dick‘s 1966 short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale”) was unveiled a week ago to little fanfare and the expected gnashing teeth of devoted fans of the Verhoeven movie and haters of remakes and reboots in general looking to justify the kind of boiled-over rage directed at this movie that you wouldn’t often find outside of Tea Party gatherings and Bill O’Reilly’s dressing room. To help alleviate rising concerns about the film’s fidelity – or lack thereof – to its source and the fact that it looks like just about every futuristic actioner out there (OOH! FLYING CARS!) the trailer for Total Recall is being presented complete with a few audio comments from the movie’s director Len Wiseman.
You can watch the trailer with Wiseman’s commentary here below.
More teasers for the teasers! Although, this time it’s more than a mere 7 seconds.
Sony has released a teaser video for the upcoming teaser trailer for their Total Recall remake, which will hit the web this Sunday.

Last summer at the Total Recallpanel at San Diego Comic-Con and then later that year at New York Comic-Con, Sony showed off some footage for the reboot starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, and John Cho. At those times, the scenes presented weren’t final and much of the special effects hadn’t been put in yet, but what I saw I really enjoyed.
