TOTAL RECALL Remake Gets an Official Synopsis

Movie Total Recall by Joey Paur

This Total Recall remake starring Collin Ferrell is going to be awesome! I never thought I would get excited about this movie, but I was completely sold after seeing some mind-blowing footage from last years Comic-Con. It looks like director Len Wiseman has done something extremely cool and very different with this story. 

The action thriller also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. Here's the official synopsis for the film released by Sony Pictures:

"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.

The film hits theaters on August 3rd, 2012 and I suspect we'll be seeing a first trailer for the movie sometime in the near future. What are you expecting from this film, and re you looking forard to it?
