Total Recall is one of my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger films, so I am looking forward to seeing the remake. Film Stage shared an international promo spot that shows the first bit of footage from the film. Len Wiseman directed the film that stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho, and Bill Nighy. Check it out in the player below!
The action thriller is a new take on the short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick.
Here is a synopsis:
Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (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 (Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (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.
Total Recall arrives in theaters on August 3. Watch the promo spot below and share your thoughts:
Do you think that Farrell will do a better job with the character than Arnie did?
