"Get Your Ass To Mars" Or Don't

I said that if "Get Your Ass to Mars" was the tagline for the film that I would be there opening day. But its not, so I won't.

Also, why reference the three breasted woman if you're not going to show her? Without the mutants or mars this feels more like "Salt" than "Total Recall".

The wanted to use all their fancy digital toys and suspected it would be hard to justify such technology on Mars. Hard to put a Johnny Cab race in a 3D movie that has those slick cars to play with. I will give it a chance. Maybe they stuck more to the original story and fine tuned some of the goofier parts of the Arnie original, which is great BTW.

I'd be interested in seeing the differences as well since they say that they are sticking closer to the original story. However, I recently watched 1982's "The Thing" and 2011's "The Thing" in close proximity, so I'm a bit cynical about remakes at the moment.

Its weird to think how the original film is now just marketing/hype for this new movie.
