What is it with film studios these days with their new craze of teaser of trailer which is just obnoxious and I hold my hand up with providing the studios the fuel by posting them and today we have Total Recall. On a positive note at least Sony Pictures provide 30 seconds of brand new footage (some seen in the recent leaked spot)which plays more like a tv spot making this spot worth a look instead of the pathetic 15 second spots other films dish out. How to describe this footage it looks like Fifth Element trying to be Blade Runner only to be destroyed by Demolition Man however no dialogue is in this however we get a look at Colin Farrell jumping and a look at Kate Beckinsale looking hot,sexy and very angry!
So whens the full trailer online? This Sunday the full trailer will arrive online during American coverage of Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat Basketball game on ABC, however the trailer will play at the same in 30 other countries probably during same coverage which means more likely ESPN here in UK. That coverage will probably mean late night possibly early Monday Morning. Total Recall 2012 also stars Jessica Biel (Melina), Bill Nighy(Kuato), Ethan Hawke and Bryan Cranston (Chancellor Cohaagen). Total Recall will be out August 22nd in UK&Ireland
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.
