Let’s be honest. The biggest reason to look forward to the upcoming Total Recall remake, starring Colin Farrell, is to see how director Len Wiseman sneaks in the now-legendary three-breasted woman.
Okay, that may sound a bit myopic. However, if you walked up to any two strangers on the street and gave them three seconds to tell you the most memorable moment of the original Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, they would probably scream three-breasts. At least if those two people were Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Personally, I’d go for baby Quato’s first appearance – followed by the three breasts, of course.
The Total Recall remake stars Farrell alongside Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho, and Bill Nighy.
Watch the teaser:
The new teaser gives us a sample of the upgraded visual aesthetic for the feature. The explosions are more realistic and the vehicles definitely look cooler – the hover cars look like something out of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Coincidentally, there are also a few high-tech troops that resemble Storm Troopers.
Total Recall opens on August 3, 2012. The full length trailer will be released on April 1.
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.
