The latest international trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake has hit the ‘net and boy howdy, does it look like the last one. Sure there is a small sprinkling of new footage if you really want to scour it frame by frame, but it still left me with an empty feeling.
Don’t get me wrong, I will fully admit this version of the classic Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale looks like a great sci-fi movie, it still depresses me a little inside. No, this is not some old nerd pining for the original… ok, maybe it is a little.
Is a 3 boobed hooker just to much to ask for these days?
Check it the trailer after the jump.
Total Recall hits theaters on August 3rd, 2012 and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel.
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.
