Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.15.12] cyberpunk scifi action thriller

Curious to see what the new version of Total Recall will look like? Then take a gander at this first footage that dropped as part of some sort of Asian marketing promo from Sony overseas.

Fans of Verhoeven's original Total Recall will see similarities right off the bat, from the mind-altering chair they stuff Douglas Quaid's head into down to the blow-out with Kate Bekinsale who plays his (perhaps) agent wife. But perhaps the biggest update is the film's visual style which is clearing going for a classic Cyberpunk vibe complete with Asian influence.

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.

The Len Wiseman-directed remake stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho.

Total Recall is scheduled to be released August 3, 2012.

mah ragazzi...,gia' quello di Verhoeven non era un capolavoro (fracassone ma nulla di piu') questo sembra ancora piu' sciocchino... io ricordo con piacere invece "Total Recall 2070" la serie tv piu' vicina alle idee di Philip Dick (e somigliante di molto a "Blade Runner")

Ok, OK. Can we please stop with all the Phil Dick projects and now re-doing Phil Dick projects? There ARE other good authors with works that can be adapted.
