A second TV spot arrived yesterday for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake, and we are granted a little bit of new footage with it. In fact a lot of the new footage features Kate Beckinsale, so there are absolutely NO complaints from me. I must admit that I was cautious of this remake from the get-go, but the more I see of this the more I believe it is actually going to impress me. Check out the new TV spot at the bottom of this post.
Directed by Len Wiseman, Total Recall has an impressive cast which includes: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawke and John Cho.
Total Recall arrives in UK cinemas 29th August. Check out our previous stories here
“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.
