Tag: Total Recall
We recently saw the release of the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which started life as an independent film unrelated to Cloverfield but was rewritten as a sequel (of sorts). This got us thinking about other films that were conceived as original projects but were altered by studios to become sequels to existing franchises.
That cult movie you love from 30 years ago? It’s coming back as a remake. Did the last attempt at a movie adaptation of a well-loved comic book hero not go so well? Don’t worry, they’re rebooting it. Does your favorite childhood film no longer appeal to newer generations? One word: remake.
The remake of Total Recall is pretty much what you'd expect from your average summer blockbuster. Good amounts of action and cool visuals, not much in terms of great story or satisfying characters. In other words, you don't have to worry about Hollywood trying to play mind games on you to make you forget about the original.
The composition of a score is one of the most important aspects of filmmaking. I would fight you tooth and nail if you disagree with this theory. I've been a fan of film scores for as long as I've remembered, and this column will be devoted to the movie related tracks that have been playing in my mind (and constantly spinning in my iPhone) for the past week. So sit back, relax, and prepare for some awesome music!
This week, we'll be focusing on the first track from the score to the original Total Recall: "The Dream" from composer Jerry Goldsmith.
Welcome back for another edition of News Bits! What is it you ask? Well, the film world can get quite overwhelming at times in the news that releases. Unfortunately some of this news is just too small to warrant a full article. Rather than deprive you of the news, we've created this section. This week in news bits we’ve got posters, trailers, a new comic book movie inspired soda, and more!
In the first bit of REAL news that's landed on this April Fools' day, comes the first official trailer for Total Recall. For a movie that's supposed to be a Summer blockbuster, we haven't seen very much of it. While rumors of strife during the production have lowered expectations for the film, the trailer is a pleasant surprise of awesomeness.
July 2012 is...huge. And it's not particularly because there's a lot of films releasing that month; actually, it probably has the least amount of films opening in the entire year of 2012. But July will be huge for two reasons, and two reasons alone; The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises. Both have had mounds of anticipation put upon them, and have been highly awaited by almost everyone. And in July, both will see the light of day. August is big, but only because it has a lot of releases; other than The Bourne Legacy and Total Recall, there's not a lot in terms of big budget genre affair. But even then, August has its positives. To find the scope of one of the biggest parts of the year, I suggest you hit the jump right now! Time for Part 4.
