The Verdict’s In – Does the Total Recall Remake Keep the Original’s R Rating?
Box Office Mojo
The original Total Recall was a solid R-rated film. The remake? Not so much. The MPAA has spoken, and Len Wiseman’s reboot merits only a PG-13 with “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, some sexual content, brief nudity, and language”.
So maybe we’ll get a quick 3-boob flash and not much else?
Len Wiseman directs the film based upon the Philip K. Dick tale We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and Jessica Biel star.
The Total Recall remake will be landing in theatres on August 3rd, 2012.
Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom 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. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
