Total Recall Trailer

Posted April 2, 2012 by Max in Trailers

Another 80’s remake had it’s first trailer released online. This particular trailer is for Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall. Colin Farrell stars in the lead role that was made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film also stars Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel, in the sci-fi action thriller. I saw some footage of this at last year’s NYCC and while it didn’t impress me, it at least convinced me I need to see the original.

Apple has the HD version. Total Recall hits theaters on August 3, 2012

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.
