The trailer for Len Wiseman’s remake of Total Recall is finally online! Now we finally get our first glimpse of Kate Beckinsale pulling a Sharon Stone on Colin Farrell as he acts rings around Arnold Schwarzenegger and still kicks major amounts of ass! Jessica Biel doesn’t have much to do in this but I think she’ll make a good Rachel Ticotin.
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 (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 (Bryan 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.
Joey Lawrence voice: “Whoa!” That looks like all kinds of summer fun! It’s too soon to tell whether or not this will be any good, but from the first look, there’s promise. I'm sure there is much more to come before the film's release.
Total Recall also stars Bryan Cranston, John Cho, Bokeem Woodbine, Ethan Hawke and Bill Nighy. It opens August 3 in the US and Canada and 22nd August in the UK.
