    ‘Total Recall’ Remake Gets An Official Mars-Free Plot Synopsis | /Film

    All’s been quiet on the Total Recall front as of late. The last post we put up regarding the Len Wiseman-directed reboot starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho, was a few set videos of hover crafts from the film. That was September. Now it’s January, the film is eight months away and Sony has released an official plot synopsis. Though we knew many of these details – i.e. There’s no Mars – it’s still pretty revealing.

    Here’s the official plot synopsis for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall, out August 3.

    “Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. 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 – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

    The words “inspired anew” made me smile. Minus the interplanetary travel, it pretty much sounds like the exact same movie as Paul Verhoeven’s original. Maybe you don’t need Mars? Possibly? I’m trying to convince myself here.

    Kinda glad these got rejected. Still a little too close to that Emmerich debacle. And they just do not look majestic enough.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s LOOPER Make-Up Designed to Resemble Bruce Willis

    In Rian Johnson‘s upcoming sci-fi action film Looper, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a looper (a hitman who kills people sent back in time by mobs in the future) who eventually has to face-off against his future self (played by Bruce Willis). When casting was announced, we didn’t really think twice about the two actors not resembling each other. It was simple suspension of disbelief. But Johnson is having none of that. The Brick director tells the LA Times that Gordon-Levitt will be spending three hours a day in a make-up chair and wear practical prosthetics to resemble the older actor.

    Hit the jump for Johnson’s explanation on how Gordon-Levitt will be playing Willis. Johnson also talks about how time travel will be used in the movie. Looper opens September 28th.

    So how is Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Bruce Willis beyond wearing prosthetics? Johnson explains to the LA Times:


    “But the biggest thing is Joe’s performance, he’s really doing Bruce in a big and daring way, but he strikes a balance between obviously imitating Bruce and also building this organic performance.”
    Pretty ambitious. JGL is turning into a pretty decent actor. I am actually getting very interested in this movie.

    i think they need to cut and paste and concept draw and collage images of some sort of original Godzilla / Harryhausen's Kraken / Cloverfiled monster / Rancor etc. to come up with something fearsome more 'majestic' as you put it.

    this whole Allosaurus, late Jurrasic hybrid thing is just not working for me.

    LOCK-OUT MS ONE Movie Featurette

    A new featurette for the sci-fi action flick Lock-Out (aka MS One) starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. The film centers on a wrongly-accused spy (Pearce) who must rescue the President’s daughter (Grace) from an orbiting prison. We’ve already seen from the trailers that Pearce is going to play a wise-cracking badass and this new featurette is basically centered on that character. I’m not sure how the rest of the movie will be, but if it works, Pearce is going to be a large reason why.
