Full Total Recall Trailer Arrives

After some impressive, although not widely distributed, Comic-Con International footage, an official plot synopsis, a few press photos and a preview, fans can finally see a full-length trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake. His taken on Philip K. Dick’s “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale,” previously adapted by Paul Verhoeven in 1990, will be released later this year.

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.

    “fans can finally see a full-length trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake!”

    Is it a remake or just another movie based on the same book?

  • Miles Cain

     from what I can tell looks like another version of the same book.

  • Anonymous

    I’d say so far it looks more like the book than a remake. Just they kept the movie name since the book has a long title.

  • Abacaca

    So, is Richter female now?

  • Guydc3

    I’m a huge fan of the original, but this looks even better. I never say that about remakes, re-imaginings. This trailer has me hyped. 

  • Guest

    I don’t think Richter was in the clip

  • Taylor

    I know the other replies say otherwise, but it seems more like a remake of the film. The short story “We Remember it for You Wholesale” is more comedic. And the end is very humorous.

  • Lenzy DrHiphop

    I think I’m going with the consensus that this is probably more so another film based on the story. Of course that assumption could change when more information about the movie comes out.

  • Jesse,

    When the plot of a movie doesn’t follow the plot of the book or the plot of the original movie, it’s not an adaptation or a remake. It’s a movie with the same title as a book and another movie.
