Watch Now: ‘Total Recall’ Remake International Promo With First Footage

Not much has been heard or seen about the remake of Total Recall directed by Len Wiseman (Underworld) with Colin Farrell in the role Arnold Schwarzenegger played in the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-directed sci-fi action smash since it went into production last year, outside of a few promotional and behind-the-scenes photos and a presentation at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con. With the movie scheduled for release later this summer, the lack of even a teaser trailer or poster is troubling for the latest cinematic adaptation of Philip K. Dick‘s short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.”

Today, we have an international promo video featuring snippets of footage from the new Total Recall. You can watch it here below.

Until an official trailer is released this will have to whet our appetite. Outside of quick glimpses of Farrell and his leading ladies Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel in action and a white-haired John Cho, there isn’t much here to get anyone excited for a movie that very few of us are even looking forward to seeing. It’s interesting that the same device that Farrell’s character is placed in to send him on his literal dream vacation is very similar to the one seen in the 1990 Total Recall.

Total Recall also stars Bryan Cranston, Ethan Hawke, Bokeem Woodbine, and Bill Nighy and opens on August 3, 2012.

  1. LOL! The memory device is the only thing that looks even remotely similar to the original film, and that’s what you choose to notice. As for not looking forward to the film, why even bother covering it or writing this piece.

    God I’m sick of whiny little idiots crying because some overrated, B-grade shlock from the ’80s is getting re-made.
