After that 30 second tease late last week--Sony Pictures has released the full trailer for the remake of Total Recall...
The film will be a new adaptation of the sci-fi saga based on the Philip K. Dick story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale"--and bares little similarity with Paul Verhoeven's 1990 version.
Colin Farrell is playing Douglas Quaid who begins to think he’s a spy, but he doesn’t know whether it’s for Euromerica or New Shanghai -one of the two superpower countries in this world.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are the female leads--Quaid's real life wife Lori, and the "woman of his dreams" Melina, respectively.
Bryan Cranston Bill Nighy Bokeem Woodbine and John Cho also star; Ethan Hawke will have a small cameo in the pic
Len Wiseman is calling the shots from a script by Mark Bomback Kurt Wimmer and James Vanderbilt. Neal Moritz is producing. The film is set to open on August 3, 2012.
To be honest--The remake looks decent--Better than I thought...The future landscapes--Farrell is no Arnold Schwarzenegger to be sure but I doubt that Phil Dick had a muscleman in his prime in mind for Quiad when he wrote the story. And it's always great to see Kate kick ass no matter the movie!!
