OK, so there is no getting of asses to Mars, and the chances of a three boob-ed lady or Kuato showing up are slim, but this new (full) trailer for Len “Underworld” Wiseman certainly delights in recycling images from the Paul Verhoeven film – only glossier and 21st century CGI-ier.
I sure hope that Kate Beckinsale gets her arms severed in this one, because the trailer seems to indicate that her character is a composite of both the Sharon Stone and the Michael Ironside characters in the 1990 version (but “See you at the party, Lori!” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.)
Colour me biased to Verhoeven’s excessively trashy ways and unimpressed by Wiseman’s previous record as a slick – if totally bland – action director.
I remain unimpressed. The trailer is below.
