‘Total Recall’ Trailer: Colin Farrell Loses His Memory, Has Girl Problems
  |  @   |  

Colin Farrell has caught himself in quite a situation. Not only can he not tell what is real and what isn’t but he also has two beautiful women looking for him. One wants to kill him and the other wants to protect him.

A new trailer for Total Recall has appeared online which includes some nods to the Arnold Schwarzenegger-vehicle released in 1990. There’s the familiar circle of light that encompasses the chair, and then there’s the three-breasted woman (which was promised a while back, even with the planned PG-13 rating).

Check out the trailer below.

Len Wiseman directs the film, which has a more sleek and shiny futuristic feel to it as opposed to the one released in 1990. And even with all the action and stunts in the film, the dialogue seems a bit lacking. Which is probably why you hear so little of it being spoken. Again the trailer seems to spoil a bit too much with the whole you are in Recall and you are not in recall.

Although Wiseman has crafted a beautiful world and visualized some incredible action sequences – that one shot take seen in the first trailer makes its way here again – it looks as though the action will be doing most of the heavy lifting, but I still hold out hope for a great story with great characters.

Farrell is joined by Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Bryan Cranston. Total Recall is set to open in theaters on August 3rd. Watch the trailer in HD on Yahoo! Movies.

  1. Did we actually watch the same trailer? There is tons of dialogue in that trailer, and it all looks quite good. What do you expect a trailer to do, show you nothing but heavy dialogue and character scenes?

    Trailer was amazing. Whether the movie is amazing is yet to be determined.

  2. Another Len Wiseman disaster. All style, no substance. Terrible character development, boring plot, disjunct connection. Gee, can you say that about any of his other films? Re: Underworld.
