Watch all the ways the new Total Recall is EXACTLY like Ahnuld's

It was impossible for any sci-fi movie fan to see the trailer for Colin Farrell's Total Recall remake and not twig to some similarities to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 original. But this video reveals that this new flick is more than just similar, it's all but a carbon copy.

Of course, director Len Wiseman's adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" differs from Paul Verhoeven's in one very obvious way: It doesn't take place on Mars. (Instead, you'll have to get your ass to New Asia.)

But, man alive, there's a whole lot of this new Recall that seems "inspired" by the old one.

Still, no one utters nonsensical lines like "If I'm not me, den who da hell am I?" quite like Arnold.

The soundstage on which a big science fiction movie is being filmed feels ... like science fiction. There are a bunch of different sets scrunched together in one mixed metaphor of a space, and these disparate environments are connected by umbilicals of heavy cable that look like they're strung around the engine room of the Nostromo in Ridely Scott's Alien.
