Columbia Pictures has released the first full trailer for the remake of Total Recall, directed by Len Wiseman. Replacing Arnold Schwarzenegger in the sci-fi this time around is Colin Farrell, in what looks to be a CGI-heavy spectacle, evident from the super-stylized action scenes, advanced technology, and gunplay.
As it looks, this version is going to focus more on action and less on the cheesiness of the original (although it’s still early to tell), as well as furnishing a twisted psychological mind trip of its own. With a fast-paced action packed trailer, the new Total Recall looks more than promising…. for now. The film also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho, Bryan Cranston, and Bill Nighy.
Check it out below:
As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on.
Total Recall hits theatres on August 3, 2012.
