Total Recall Poster: International Version Fails to Impress

The international poster for director Len Wiseman’s “Total Recall” remake ranks up there with some of the worst posters ever conceived. Nothing about the piece makes you excited for the movie. Unless, of course, poorly Photoshopped images crammed into one space is enough to separate you from your hard-earned money. My interest in the film continues to drop every time new promotional material is released, and this international poster isn’t helping matters any. I guess I shouldn’t judge a movie by its poster, but damn, that thing is ugly.

Unfamiliar with “Total Recall”? Then you probably need this synopsis:

For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he’s got a beautiful wife who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man as he finds himself on the run from the police.

“Total Recall” stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, John Cho, and Bill Nighy. Oh, and a three-breasted alien. Can’t forget about her. Look for the film to arrive in North American theaters on August 3rd.

    The poster isn’t good, but honestly who gives a shit? Poster art ranks right at the top as the most useless thing, along with DVD cover art. Who ever based their interest in a film on a theatrical poster? Nobody with any sense. So again, who cares whether the poster is any good?

    Why is anyone interested in a remake of a Schwarzenegger film that came out in 1990? This movie should never have been re-made.
