Sony aired some footage from Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas this week, and Frosty from Collider provided a description of what he saw. Normally I’d just ignore that since writing about someone else describing a ten minute video they watched seems about as fascinating as reading a stranger’s dream journal. But then we heard the magic words “THREE-BREASTED HOOKER”.
This one showed a lot of the story set-up, beginning with Farrell as Doug at home with his wife, played by Kate Beckinsale, in a room talking about how things haven’t turned out the way he had hoped, but then he hears about something called Rekall from his friend (Bookem Woodbine), although he tells him not to go there.
Doug doesn’t listen and he goes to the city’s seedier area and is propositioned by this movie’s version of the three-breasted hooker! “You’ll wish you had 3 hands,” she tells him before he spots the sign for Rekall and goes in. [CBM]
How is that not part of every press release about this movie? If Sony wants to play it smart, they’ll replace the official poster and tagline with our improved version above. Don’t bury the lede, guys.
