TUESDAY 3RD APRIL 2012 - DAILY DOSE
Today's DAILY DOSE is a trailer for an upcoming film that I think I need some community consensus on
- a remake of TOTAL RECALL.
Now I love the original.
It had everything:
80s Arnie, Sci-Fi Plot, Psychic Mutants
and Triple-Boobed Prostitutes!
This remake seems to be taking all of the plot and major scenes and simply reshooting them in HD.
It's going to take some serious innovation, creativity or clever homage to the original for this to not feel like another Hollywood cash-in (which it clearly is anyway).
If they had it so that the events of this film are a recall, and this somehow links into the events of the original - that could possibly work.
Where you aren't sure if the plot shown is real, a fabrication or a continuation of previous recalls?
So I put it to YOU!
Is this a good idea?
Could it work?
Is it doomed from the start?

The final verdict can be given on the 3rd August 2012, when Total Recall is released in cinemas.
