Here’s the first full length trailer for the Total Recall remake. I really didn’t think we needed another Total Recall until I saw this trailer. My first impression is that this film might top the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger version. So what’s it about? In short the film is about memory manipulation and the confusion between fiction and reality. Totall Recall is based on the short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, by Philip K. Dick. The Recall update stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel.
From the trailer it does not appear they go to Mars, like Schwarzenegger’s film, or encounter any three breasted mutant ladies of the night. It does however show a very badass Farrell taking down a whole security unit. Basically the trailer can be summed it up by saying there’s going to be a lot of action backstabbing and oh yeah, Kate Beckinsale is way hotter than Sharon Stone.
This new Total Recall was directed by Len Wiseman, and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. The film hits theaters August 3, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis for Totall Recall
Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
