I’m really getting sick of teaser trailers that promote the debut of full-length trailers at a later date. Teaser trailers alone suck, because they mostly feature voiceovers, recycled footage and too much text, but now they have to put together a trailer that’s solely made to advertise the actual trailer? What kind of world do we live in? Trailers for the real trailers?
Anyways, Sony has released a 30-second teaser trailer that promotes the release of the full-length trailer for the Total Recall reboot, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Ethan Hawke, Bill Nighy and John Cho. It honestly doesn’t reveal anything other than the budget of the film, which has got to be pretty high considering the explosive set pieces and heavy use of CGI for the futuristic world.
I can’t say that it doesn’t look like fun though. I’ve never actually seen the original Total Recall (don’t kill me). So, if I were to judge this new adaptation by this teaser I’d say it looks okay. I like futuristic sci-fi projects and while I’d prefer something more original, I’ll take what I can get.
Total Recall will hit theaters on August 3rd, 2012.
Check out the teaser below and the full-length trailer this Sunday during the Celtics vs. Heat NBA game or right here on The Daily Rotation!
