Here is the exceedingly cool (as in bowties and fezzes) trailer for the upcoming Series 6 of Doctor Who…less than a month away!
I’ve been hearing from various different directions that some of the clues laid for the plot of the Total Recall remake, given in the announcement that Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) has joined the cast, could mean that in this version there is no trip to Mars.
In both the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film and the original story, the protagonist, Douglas Quaid, wishes he could go to Mars, but can only afford the memories of such a trip, along with some added extras like being a secret agent, as implanted by the Rekall corporation. When they try to implant the memories, something goes wrong – suppressed memories surface, and it turns out he IS a secret agent, and the answer to what happened to him lies on Mars!
In the details that were given for the new version, Quaid still comes to believe he is a spy, but he is somehow embroiled in the situation between Euromerica and New Shangai, two large nations on the brink of war. Cranston will play the leader of Euromerica, who may be planning to attack New Shanghai.
Mars could still be in the cards, but I’m wondering if this might be a little closer to a Bourne-type thriller.
In the next sneak peek clip of the all-new episode of Being Human, Nora tells Josh that she’s already getting sick from the pregnancy and she feels like she’s showing too. Josh is shocked and questions whether she should be experiencing both already, while clearly keeping to himself the fear of what might really be inside her. He reassures her that he wants to stay with her through the pregnancy, and then she tells him her HCG levels are off the charts. That basically means there could be multiple fetuses, or a possible birth defect. Josh looks like he needs one big gulp and a deep breath while he confirms he will be at the ultrasound to figure it all out. Watch the clip and tune in on Monday at 9/8c on Syfy to see exactly what Nora and Josh could be bringing into the world.
