Total Recall promo shows first footage from the remake


This trailer gives us our first look at the new version of Total Recall. The memory chair at Rekall looks similar to the one Arnie used but everything is a bit grungier.

There is not much to go on, but it looks good in a seen it all before kind of way. Hints of Minority Report and other films with a blue sheen to them spring to mind.

Watch the trailer and let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

The film is due out on 3rd August.

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.

For fans of the original film the supercut belows shows just how much shattered glass there was in it.
