Once indexed sci-fi masterpiece with Arnold Schwarzenegger appears as a noble new edition – uncut

20 years after he came on the index in 1991, Paul Verhoeven’s science fiction cult film “Total Recall” was even released from the age of 16. Now the Schwarzenegger classic appears in a chic new edition – in a resolution that has never been seen before.

Studiocanal upgrades! Just a few months after the trashy sci-fi cult “Flash Gordon” was first published in 4K (and various editions), “Total Recall” (1990) is now an undisputed genre highlight.

The classic, based on a short story by the legendary science fiction author Philip K. Dick, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, who books a virtual trip as Douglas Quaid and soon can no longer distinguish between reality and fiction, originally appeared in Germany with an 18 release, until it even landed on the index in 1991. In 2011, the indexing was finally lifted and the film was also released from the age of 16.

So if you have doubts as to whether the new edition of the film, including the 4K master, which will appear in various editions, really contains all the scenes, you can breathe a sigh of relief: The “Total Recall” editions available from November 19, 2020 are all completely uncut – and also have a lot more to offer. For example a nice cover artwork:

The full load of “Total Recall”

Similar to “Flash Gordon” last August, Studiocanal is releasing the cult film by cult film director Paul Verhoeven (“RoboCop”, “Starship Troopers”) for the first time worldwide including a 4K restoration. Both the German and the English language versions will be available in DTS-HD Master Audio, but above all the film will shine in a new look – in Ultra HD resolution.

If you don’t own a 4K player (yet), you can also get the new master on Blu-ray – either as a Standard Edition or in a Limited Edition – and on DVD, albeit with a lower resolution. In addition to an audio commentary with leading actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and director Paul Verhoeven, fans who would like to know more about the classic can also expect brand new bonus material.

The standard editions already contain, for example, extras on the making of the film and the film music XMOVIES 8. If you pick up one of the two Steelbooks, you will also get more – including the documentary “Total Excess: How Carolco Changed Hollywood”.

Stream “Total Recall”

It is to be expected that “Total Recall” as well as “Flash Gordon” will also be available digitally as a stream in the new sampling from November. Until then, the film can at least be streamed in the familiar version – for example on Amazon Prime Video from 1.99 euros or in the Filmtastic Channel *.

The remake from 2012 with Colin Farrell in the lead role can currently be found on Netflix.
