There's a bunch of new footage packed into this new short TV spot for the badass looking remake of Total Recall! I can't help but love what I'm seeing from this movie. We know the story is great, it's just wrapped up in a very nice looking new package. The style and design of the movie is very cool. I love that it has a Blade Runner kind of vibe to it. The movie looks like it's going to be very entertaining, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
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. Are you excited about seeing this remake? Do you think it will be better than the original?
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) 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.
