Again, I’m not happy that they are remaking Total Recall, but I am interested and I will give them a shot. Just as long as they don’t butcher the original film. I’ve said it before, but the original movie is one of my top five favorite movies of all time.
Somehow, I don’t mind if Colin Farrell is the main character in Total Recall. But check it out, from comingsoon.net, from last week:
