Which Total Recall?

Tonight at Target I saw a "special edition" of Total Recall for $5.50. I haven't opened it yet, but it looks like a keepcase in a cardboard slipcover. The price was right, so I got it.

But now I don't know what I got. I saw what looked like one review for two different versions, and three DVDs listed in the price search.

Is this the same release as the version that came out in the round tin? Is this the newest release?

The one you got is the same release as the "Mars" tin version. Artisan released this one with two different packaging styles, much like the Special Edition for Basic Instinct (regular keepcase or clear case with "icepick" pen).

I still have the tin and carboard holder as well... i made a custom cover for it so the tin and box are just sitting in a cabinet out of the way. was tired of it falling out so much.

I bought the tin version a while back. On a whim, I emailed Artisan and told them that, while I loved the tin and it looked great on display next to my T2 UE tin, etc., it really did not store well with all my other movies - actually, I think I (jokingly) told them it kept "rolling away". Anyway, within a week, I received a keep case in the mail, complete with Total Recall SE cover and insert! Hats off to Artisan!

There is a rumor that a third edition of Total Recall is coming. I remember an Artisan rep talked about it in an article and recently supposed specs on a German version were released.

When I finally decided to buy Total Recall, I made sure that I bought the regular keepcase version. Although the tin may look cool (for about three seconds) I knew that having that custom-shaped case would be a pain, so I just got the regular case version.

Cool. Good info. Thanks for the help guys.

Any idea why it's so gosh-darn cheap? Not that I'm complaining.

Artisan movies tend to go very cheap eventually.

I love "Total Recall" but i have to admit it is quite a funny movie.

I need to buy "Running Man".



The tin isnt a bad thing once you actually make a DVD holder to fit inside it.

Mine too, but I sent a letter to the company and got the regular case and insert too and keep the disc in that.

I have no issues with my tin. Sits on the cardboard on the shelf with the rest of my discs just fine.
