Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall is a gloriously pulp adaptation of the Philp K. Dick tale, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The 1990 film features Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime and some glorious special effects and a brilliant Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack.
The film hits 4K Ultra HD Collector’s Edition, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and Steelbook on 23 November and it will also screen at select UK cinema screenings in November. The film has also been selected to premiere at the Deauville American Film Festival (4-13 September 2020) and the Sitges, International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia (8-18 October 2020).
This is what Verhoeven says of the Total Recall restoration:
“I just saw the 4K presentation of my movie and it’s absolutely wonderful what STUDIOCANAL and the restoration team have done. There is so much detail you could say it is three-dimensional. Bravo! I hope many people go and see the movie.”
A new poster and trailer have been created to promote the release (see below) with Steelbook artwork designed by artist Kyle Lambert.
