What the hell is the title of this movie ?

Asked by iwamoto (5266points) December 4th, 2009

My girlfriend gave me the description of a movie, usually i can figure them out, but this one…

So it’s about a guy who is involved in some kind of project, then his mind gets erased, and he gets a box full of usefull stuff from a guy form the future who was involved in the same project. the box contains stuff to help him, for example, he’s in a burning building but has a key for the door in the box. apparently there’s also a girl who can modify the weather (or something similar) in a white room.

We don’t have a lot to go on, sounds like a mix between Total recall and Minority Report with a dash of The Butterfly Effect, hints and even a full title would be greatly appreciated !

The first part sounds a bit similar to Primer. Could that be it?

This is a short story by Philip K. Dick! Both the movie and the original story are called Paycheck

Paycheck was a pretty silly movie, but I enjoyed it just the same.

I was thinking “that’s kind of like Total Recall…” until i got to the end of your thing. Sounds cool though

Definitely Paycheck. Good news: Uma Thurman. Bad news: Ben Affleck.

Actually, tha’ts also a Philip K. Dick story originally; We Can Remember it for You Wholesale

@Foolaholic, that reminds me of Neil Gaiman’s We Can Get Them For You Wholesale. It’s a very good short story, but then again, Neil is one of the best at writing good short stories.

@Foolaholic We Can Remember It For You Wholesale was the short story on which Total Recall was based.
Paycheck was based on the short story of the same name.

That’s what I said…
