Two new clips have landed this week for Len Wiseman’s new vision of Total Recall, and we have both those clips right here for your viewing pleasure. Now, the clips are not exactly exhilarating, nor are they actually all that good. There is not much going on at all to be honest: one clip has a rather casual gun fight, and the other simply has Kate Beckinsale talking to a video phone device. But here is the reason for watching: both clips feature plenty of Kate Beckinsale, so watch them just for that, it is the only reason!
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.
