SDCC 2012: Total Recall panel

The panel for Total Recall, with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, and director Len Wiseman, started the Screen Gems/Sony Panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The remake of the 1990 classic, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, looks to be another summer smash. A new trailer filled with about six minutes of footage showed the unrelenting, action-packed, smash and dash non-stop riveting adventure and vibrant world that the character of Farrell, one Douglas Quaid, gets thrust into by way of Rekall Industries, electrified the crowd in Hall H.

Farrell spoke about filling the large shoes in taking on Arnold’s role; Beckinsale expounded about being tongue in cheek about being incredulous that her husband Wiseman cast her to be a huge “bitch” as she takes on the role originated by Sharon Stone in the original production; Cranston waxed about his character (originated by Ronny Cox in the first film) and working with the film’s principles; Biel spoke about the training process, which involved multitudes of boxing and chicken, and Wiseman talked of making the movie.

The Q&A session fielded questions about the tone of the film; Farrell, Beckinsale, Cranston, and Biel’s approaches to their characters, and a funny moment when Cranston hummed the theme to Masterpiece Theater when Beckinsale was asked how her husband Wiseman treated Britain in the film.

To sum up, there were good vibes and all around fun with this panel, something that the upcoming production of Total Recall seems destined to also give the audience, when it opens in theaters on August 3rd.
