In Total Recall, Colin Farrell becomes bored with his current life and visits a company that can tinker with his mind to make things more interesting. Things go awry, and as we’ve mentioned before, this is probably just karma doing its thing — why would you want to mess with your mind when you’re married to Jessica Biel? All complaining aside, there’s some pretty badass action sequences in a new spot, and while it’ll be difficult to top Arnold’s 1990 classic, this remake looks like it’s up to the challenge.
. Total Recall opens August 3rd, 2012. .
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.
