The Secrets Behind the ‘Total Recall’ Hovercars

While the jury is still out on how the new Total Recall remake will compare with the Schwarzengger classic, one thing is certain: special effects have come a long way!

For this summer’s reimagining of the 1990 hit action movie, director Len Wiseman has created believable, levitating sports cars. Instead of using pure CGI, the production team combined CGI with real footage, using the technique of stacking two vehicles on top of each other.

Watch the featurette below for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the Total Recall hovercars.

Total Recall stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, and John Cho. It opens in theaters on August 3rd.
