TOTAL RECALL teaser appears online
Sunday not only marks a new month and probably the most prankiest 24 hours of the year but it also will debut the trailer for a remake of an Arnold Schwarzenegger classic. TOTAL RECALL will come at us true and blue in all of its remake special effects glory this summer but for now, we have a small teaser for you to enjoy until the trailer arrives on April 1st. I pray that this won’t be some kind of sick April Fools prank. There have been many remakes but this film is of one that I actually remember debuting in theaters as a kid. Makes me feel really, really old. Well here it is, check it out and let is know what you think of the teaser:
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.
TOTAL RECALL stars Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho and Bill Nighy. It hits theaters August 3.
