As watchable as Paul Verhoven’s “Total Recall” was, let’s face it, there are parts of that film that are pretty cringe-inducing. The Mars sets were also incredibly artificial and as unreal as you can get in a Hollywood production, so there are plenty of improvements that can be made on the 1990 original. Mind you, I’m not saying that Len Wiseman’s reboot with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and his wife Kate Beckinsale will be any better, but I am saying … well, I don’t know what I’m saying, but here’s Kate Beckinsale on the set of the “Total Recall” reboot.
Beckinsale is playing the Lori role, originally played by Sharon Stone in the original. Biel’s got the Melina role, originally played by Rachel Ticotin. Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawke, John Cho, Bokeem Woodbine, and Will Yun Lee rounds out the 2012 movie cast.
You’ll be able to recall it wholesale again August 3, 2012.
