Damn it, man! I wasn't ready for that at all. I wish they'd released a trailer for the teaser for the trailer for the teaser-trailer you just posted a few weeks ago so I could have been better-prepared.

I'm at work, so I can't see the video, but really? Now they're revamping Total Recall.

If its not a remake, why do they use the same title?

I understood the reboot vs remake point ...

For example,

I like "TOTAL RECALL ...sorta-kinda, but different"

now thats a title the says NOT REMAKE

Okay guys, I just watched the trailer, but I'm not feeling this new take on Total Recall.

Here's some clips from the classic 90s flick (sorry the embed ability was disabled by the user):

I don't like the term "remake" when the first movie isn't some original idea either. They're both adapting a pre-existing story. And from what I understand there's quite a few differences between the two movies. As for why they went with "Total Recall," money is a pretty safe bet.

From the trailer there is no mention of asses and attempting to get them to mars. It will be nigh impossible to supplant spot reserved in my heart for the Arnold version, I wish it luck. Collin Farrel is already kind of a minus.

The 90s trailer, in all its glory.

On a different note, here's Arnie in Commando (in rap - and very well done I might add):
