A new TV Spot is now online for director Len Wiseman's sci-fi remake, "Total Recall" starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and Bill Nighy. Farrell plays Douglas Quaid, a memory-tampered factory worker who's hunted down by the authorities when he uncovers a conspiracy involving the concealment of his super spy identity. In this 30 second clip we see Farrell's version of the classic Schwarzenegger scene where he talks to his alter ego via a recorded message. On August 3rd, moviegoers will see if Farrell will have to stick a self-guiding tracking removal gun up his nose too.
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.
