The Total Recall remake that's coming out next month might be totally unnecessary, but at least it's giving empty storefronts in midtown something to do. A tipster sent in the photo above, of a former Sprint store near Grand Central Terminal. "Rekall" is the virtual vacation company where our hero (Arnold Schwartzenegger in the original, Colin Farrell in the new one) goes to get false memories implanted in his brain. So while this looks like a sketchy pop-up shop, it's actually a fake sketchy pop-up shop. Either way: still sketchy.
