We've been seeing a lot of Japanese movie trailers for big budget films over the last few months. Most of them have been pretty cool, offering new footage. The new one-minute Japanese trailer for Total Recall has a couple bits of cool looking new footage, but they flash by fast. I'm loving what I've seen in these Total Recall trailers, they tease just enough great looking exciting footage to get me excited about seeing more.
Len Wiseman directed the adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. And it stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho, and Bill Nighy. The movie comes out on August 3rd, 2012--hope you like the trailer!
Here's the Synopsis:
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) whom 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) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). 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 is directed by Len Wiseman. The screenplay is by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback and the screen story is by Ronald Shusett & Dan O'Bannon and Jon Povill. The producers are Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe.
