New Set Photos from Len Wiseman’s Remake of TOTAL RECALL [Updated]

     July 13, 2011

I’m not necessarily opposed to a remake of Total Recall.  I’m opposed to a remake when the original was from interesting director Paul Verhoeven and the remake is by Len Wiseman, a director who thought blue was the only color his Underworld movies needed.  The remake takes Mars out of the equation and has protagonist Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) trying to find out if he’s a spy for the nation state of Euromerica or its rival New Asia.  New set photos from the film have leaked online and they provide a look at storm trooper outfits, a car that looks like it was taken from Demolition Man, and a neat New Asian passport (I like that the passport has a QR Code).

Hit the jump to check out the set photos.  The film also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho, Ethan Hawke, and Bryan Cranston.  Total Recall opens August 3, 2012. [Update: We’ve added more set photos after the jump.]

The person who sent in the last two set photos into Aint It Cool wrote the following [potential spoilers]:

“In the scene, a massive spaceship apparently breaks through to the area and a big riot starts in which the New Asians try to overcome the robot police… the adaptation is more faithful to the original novel by Philip K. Dick than the previous film with Arnold.

You can’t go wrong with robot police whether it’s police officers who are robots or officers who police robots.
