Updated: Total Recall: Theatrical Trailer

Below is the theatrical trailer for Len Wiseman's remake of "Total Recall.' Unlike the 90's film, Wiseman's version is more closely based on the 1966 novelette 'We Can Remember It for You Wholesale' by Philip K. Dick and contains strong political influences, as mentioned in the novel. The screenplay was written by Mark Bomback, James Vanderbilt and Kurt Wimmer.


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.

The film hits Irish and UK screens 22 August 2012.
