Collection Of Action Packed Total Recall Images

By Brent McKnight | 8 years ago

It’s debatable whether or not Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake is a necessary endeavor or not. Just for the record, I fall squarely on the unnecessary side of the argument, but that’s beside the point, and no one in Hollywood seems to care what I have to say on the subject of remakes and rehashes.

Wiseman is best known for his Underworld movies, not to mention Live Free or Die Hard, and it certainly looks like he’s bringing his action leanings to Total Recall. He has the PG-13 action model down pat. This new collection of images proves the point. All the major players are featured, including Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel.

The action runs the gamut from intense driving…

…to gun play…

…to more gun play…

…a little hand to hand combat…

…a close up look at a flashy special effects piece (not super actiony)…

…and any action movie worth its salt isn’t complete without a shot of the stars, back to back, in a rare moment of inactivity, intently watching something off screen.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story “We Can Remember it for You Wholesale,” Total Recall is about a pair of Martian rebels (Farrell and Biel) trying to topple a corrupt government while another woman (Beckinsale) tries to stop foil there plans. There’s also some amnesia, a conspiracy or two, and, as you can tell from these pictures, no shortage of asskicking.

Though he may not have Paul Verhoven’s underlying weirdness, at least with Wiseman at the helm you know things will move right along at a fever pace. Total Recall also stars Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, Ethan Hawke, John Cho, Bill Nighy, and Will Yun Lee, and opens in theaters August 3rd of 2012.
