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, directed by Len Wiseman, comes to theaters August 3rd, 2012.
Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the first poster for the remake of Total Recall which takes place on a future Earth, whereas Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 fan favorite starring former California Governator and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger was set on Mars. This is perhaps the biggest apparent difference between the films. Here’s the synopsis for the film:Be sure to check back on FilmoFilia this Sunday (April 1st), as that is when the film’s full teaser trailer is scheduled to be released online. Motion posters:
