What if they remade Total Recall as Minority Report? Check out the full trailer now . . .

The full trailer for the upcoming Total Recall remake is now online.

The movie is directed by Len Wiseman and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.

Release date is August 3, 2012.

 

 

As you can see from the trailer the remake follows the plot of the original movie except for the going to Mars bit that is. Here’s the official 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) 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.

    If I put the tacky charm of the original out of my mind and pretend it’s just another Hollywood sci-fi spectacle I can perhaps see myself enjoying this.

    Hollywood running out of ideas again,come up with something origonal,Like a film about where the secret societies of the world origonated,who their members are and how they plan to take over the world.now that would be a good scifi thriller.
