With Total Recall’s release just a few weeks away, Sony have been ramping up its promotion this week, giving us a handful of new clips from the film showing off the action and sci-fi we can look forward to next month.
Continuing the recent flurry, we’ve now got a new action vignette taking us behind the scenes with some great new footage and interviews with the people behind the film.
Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale star as the leading trio, with support coming from the ever-brilliant Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, John Cho, and Ethan Hawke.
“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.”
Len Wiseman (Underworld) is the man behind the camera for this new vision of Philip K. Dick’s 1966 original short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.
Total Recall hits US theatres on 3rd August, and will be coming to the UK on 29th August. From what we’ve seen so far, I’m definitely intrigued, and very much looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds next month. For now, the new look behind the action of the film.
