New Total Recall Trailer

The new Total Recall trailer debuted online. If you are not familiar, this version has Colin Farell playing the role of Quaid instead of Arnold Schwarzeneggar. Presumably, there is still some link to the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember it for You Wholesale.” It also stars Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, and John Cho. It opens August 3.

What do you think? There’s no Mars in this one, and presumably no Kuato bursting forth from a guy’s stomach and no now-internet-famous extraordinarily endowed woman. That being said, the world building looks pretty interesting, if a little Fifth Element. Hopefully more details will emerge regarding the plot, but it looks like it could be a fun summer movie. Get your popcorn ready.
