Watch the first teaser-trailer for ‘Total Recall’

- Advertisement -

We recently reviewed Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall on episode 311 of the Sound On Sight podcast, alongside John Carter. Needless to say we are all still huge fans of the flick, even decades later. Who doesn’t remember Johnny-cab whistling the Norwegian national anthem, or the down and dirty martial arts brawl between Stone and Ticotin – not to mention one of Schwarzenegger’s most famous one liners: “Consider that a divorce!” We try our best to keep things timely, and now just today the first teaser for the remake has been released. The full trailer will be shown during the Celtics/Heat game on ABC Sunday April 1, and will most likely appear online shortly after. In the meantime, check out this tease. Enjoy!

Synopsis: 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) whom 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) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). 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 is directed by Len Wiseman. The screenplay is by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback and the screen story is by Ronald Shusett & Dan O’Bannon and Jon Povill. The producers are Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe.
