First off, I must apologize for the awful joke in the article title. I think you’ll forgive me though once you check out the first clip from the Total Recall remake that premiered during Kate Beckinsale’s recent Ellen appearance. Jump to 5:41 above to check it out. Want some more? Of course you do! There’s a new TV spot for the flick after the jump.
Personally, I still think there’s a distinct lack of Johnny Cab, Rekall jingles, Verhoeven-esque shots of breaking glass and anyone getting their ass to Mars, but it still looks much better than I expected. So clearly I’m damning this with faint praise, but how are the rest of you feeling about this new footage? (Via Gamma Squad)
