One of my all-time favorite 80’s science fiction movies was Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’ll be honest – I’m still not sold on Colin Farrell playing Douglas Quaid in the new film.
Frankly, I would rather seen someone along the lines of Jason Statham. Then again, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale do go a long way towards making Farrell more bearable.
Although I’m not a huge fan of Farrell, I certainly plan on going to see Total Recall when it hits theaters August 3rd. In the meantime, Columbia has launched a second full-length trailer for the film with lots of action shots.
I really like this new trailer, because it answers one burning question: will the three-breasted prostitute (Martian or otherwise) appear in the new film? She’s not exactly Al Bundy’s ideal woman, because the third breast isn’t in the back for dancing, but yes, she is in the new trailer.
The trailer synopsis is as follows:
“‘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.”
