The "Total Recall" remake is set to hit stores on DVD and Blu-ray on December 18th. To promote the release, Columbia Pictures has now unveiled the first ten minutes from the new movie. Check it out below.
Plot: Welcome to Rekall, the company that with one little implant can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Doug Quaid (Colin Farrell), the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his ordinary existence. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. With the line between fantasy and reality blurred and the fate of his world hanging in the balance, Quaid goes on the run to discover his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
"Total Recall" was released in theaters in August, grossing $198 million globally on a $125 million budget. Unfortunately the film only earned $59 million domestically and couldn't even beat the $261 million take of the original film, which was released in 1990 and cost $65 million.
Even with all that money and all that technology it just doesn't pay most times when it comes to remakes, not even if arnold himself came back for it...it's why i still have 2nd thoughts about zemeckis doing another roger rabbitt, unless they bring bob hoskins in as a cartoon version of eddie valient and toons and humans alike can switch from being a toon or a human somehow, but i doubt that's what zemeckis had in mind...a sequel or prequel would've done better than a remake

Lol. I feel like I've gone back in time half a year when this shot should have been available.
Now that Recall has failed in theaters, and largely failed with critics, they want to give ten minutes away?
What the f*ck ever. And most of the people who wanted to see it, out of curiosity, I guess, have already done so because a really good copy has been floating around the internet for a month, at least.
Here's a hint, Hollywood. Instead of giving way ten minutes of some sh*tty film, put the damned thing on Youtube for a 1.99.

And the new TR wasn't bad. Not bad at all. Just nothing original whatsoever, but not a terrible film by any stretch.

Why watch 10 minutes of a bad remake, when I can watch the original on DVD?
