This new 90-second international TV spot for Colin Farrell's sci-fi thriller "Total Recall" packs a powerful wallop. Just take a look at all those futuristic cars chasing through CGI streets and shiny white robots pointing their cutting-edge weapons. There are even scenes of Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel punching the hell out of each other in a tiny elevator, and Ferrell zipping back through the air after being caught in a glowing net. Looks like director Len Wiseman spared no expense when it came to delivering his version of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic. You'll decide if he got it right or got it wrong when "Total Recall" opens in theaters this Friday.
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.
