Total Recall - Director's Cut is 17 minutes longer

Further details on the extended version

Soon, the new film version of Total Recall starts in the US and UK. As expected, it received the previously announced PG-13 rating by the MPAA. While this is the official theatrical version, the later Blu-ray will feature a longer cut of the movie. This, too, is no surprise since director Len Wiseman said so several weeks ago. The famous scene with the three-breasted woman will be in there in its full glory.

In the meantime, more info regarding the Director's Cut surfaced. It will run 17 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, which clocks in at 119 minutes. The overall runtime is then increased to 136 minutes, which is very close to the first rough cut with 140 minutes.

Wiseman on...

  • the scenes in the Director's Cut:

“There are scenes where it really comes into question about questioning his whole reality: I love that game, that’s why I did this movie. So there’s a lot more of that, so it often can feel like, ‘Is it repeating?’ I personally don’t feel like it is, I feel like it’s really diving in and really just chewing on it for a while, so I’m fascinated by that."

  • his Original Cut:

“To be completely honest, I’m into as many layers as you could possibly put in so there’s more complexity within a first director’s pass, and that’s what causes the 2 hours and 20 minutes. I just finished my director’s cut as well, which Sony was very cool about, ‘cause it’s no cheap thing to put together either so they really have to support it. That’s closer to the 2 hours and 20 minutes that I originally had.”

  • the difference between a DC and an Extended Cut:


“This is more of a director’s cut, this is closer to my original cut. I’m not saying anything that’s unknown, but movies are always cut down and there’s a lot of complexity within the film that is not always widely accepted by the general audience, which is just a reality; a movie of a certain size, they don’t want people to be too—it’s a balance of how deep to keep going with these ideas.”


Total Recall hits US cinemas on August 3rd, 2012 and UK cinemas on August 29th, 2012.
