Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life.

Why? Why Do This?
Why anyone thought it'd be a good idea to remake that film, I can't imagine.
The first trailer for the Total Recall remake has finally been released, and it seems to confirm all of my fears. It doesn't look like it has any of the character or personality of the original, the trailer doesn't convey much of the plot and just looks messy, and as is the trend these days, there's no mention of Mars (which apparently has become box office poison).
That's right, this is another sci-fi adventure that deals with Mars, or at least the book and the original film did. Not that it matters; no matter where it's set, it still looks messy.
Personally, I'm not impressed. What do you think? Share your thoughts about the original or the upcoming remake in the comments below.
