OK, now this is pretty freaking cool. I’m guessing a lot of you were like myself and thought that the hovercar chase sequences in the upcoming remake of Total Recall were done using mostly CGI. I mean, that’s what most people do these days, right? Not director Len Wiseman, who decided that he wanted the actors to really have the feeling of speeding down the road during these action sequences. So his production team built two rigs for each car, sat one directly on top of the other, and then digitally removed the bottom piece in post-production. Trust me – it looks awesome. Check out the behind-the-scenes video that details how it was done below!
. Total Recall hovers its way into theaters on August 3rd, 2012. .
Synopsis: “Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. 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) 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. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. 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.
