Check Out New Photos from Total Recall
Posted 05.14.12 by Chris
Ever since the trailer premiered over a month ago, news on the Total Recall front has been quiet. Well, Sony finally got around to updating the movie's website with some new high-res goodies: Photos, featuring Colin Farrell, who plays Douglas Quaid in the movie, Kate Beckinsale, Quaid's wife, and Jessica Biel, who plays a rebel fighter and Quaid's "fantasy woman." The photos don't reveal much more than what we saw in the trailer but are still worth a look.
Of course, the movie is a remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger flick of the same name, which itself was based on Philip K. Dick's sci-fi short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. If you need to recall the movie's plot, here's the synopsis:
Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (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 (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.
