A few days ago, we shared with you the trailer for Total Recall. And suffice to say that it was fuckin’ awesome.
In a rare move, director Len Wiseman got together with MTV and recorded a director’s commentary on the trailer. Yes, you read that right. He did a commentary of the trailer. It actually helps to provide some neat insight into the process. I suppose this means we can expect a director’s commentary when the DVD comes out.
Check out the trailer with his commentary below. The film is out in theaters on August 3, 2012 and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.
Hit the jump for the official 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 (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.
