Mars Today is a newspaper that covers news and current events related to the planet Mars.
In “Total Recall,” Arnold Schwarzenegger is on the run from bad guys in a shopping mall on Mars. The movie audience is delighted to recognize a visual pun: There’s a familiar newspaper box, but it says “Mars Today” in red instead of the iconic blue. In a movie about corporate greed, filled with logos for Hilton, Pepsi and Sharper Image, why wouldn’t you find the newspaper for travelers on Mars?
Known as “The Newspaper of the Universe,” MARS Today is an intergalactically distributed Martian daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company.
