Blu-ray Monday: Total Recall

For this week’s Blu-ray Monday, we’re giving you the chance to win this year’s remake of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell, on Blu-ray.

The ‘reimagining’ of the 1990 sci-fi classic sees Colin Farrell take on the original Arnold Schwarzenegger role of Douglas Quaid, a factory worker who visits Rekall, a revolutionary company that can turn his superspy fantasies into real memories. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, the line between fantasy and reality blurs as Quaid becomes a man on the run and the fate of his world hangs in the balance. The film co-stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston, and the Blu-ray comes packed with special features, including an extended director’s cut and several BD-exclusive featurettes.

As usual with our Blu-ray Monday competitions, you have two chances to win. For your first entry, just click on the tweet button above. Then for a second entry, leave a comment below in response to the following question:

Hollywood remakes are gaining in popularity, from Gus van Sant’s shot-by-shot recreation of Psycho and Steven Soderbergh’s update of Ocean’s Eleven, to films such as The Departed and the upcoming Oldboy, which were both adapted from foreign-language originals. So this week, we’re talking remakes. What movies from the past, or from another country, would you like to see remade and why? Would you like to see a new version of Blade Runner or Close Encounters with modern special effects? Maybe you’d like to see some other Hitchcock classics brought back with today’s stars? Or perhaps you’d rather that directors leave old films alone and focus on creating something new. Whatever your take, we’d love to hear from you!

You have a little longer with Blu-ray Monday this week as we’ll be announcing the winner on Monday 7th January. But as usual, to make it easier for us to contact you, remember to leave your Twitter details with your comment. Good luck!
