New Total Recall TV Spot Arrives
Colin Farrell considers this a divorce

30 July 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: Exclusive

The new Total Recall may not be getting our asses to Mars - Len Wiseman's reboot is set entirely on our home planet - but judging by the movie's new international TV spot, Earth will do very nicely indeed. There's a whole mess of sci-fi spectacle in Len Wiseman's future world and it's all on display in a spot that's heavy on things going "boom" and very low on safe sky-driving.

 

Following on from the footage that Empire watched at Comic-Con and the early trailer, and a sci-fi aesthetic is emerging that falls somewhere between Blade Runner and Tron. A broad spectrum, sure, but a suitably vivid backdrop for Douglas Quaid (Farrell) to discover that he isn't quite who he thinks he is and that who he actually is is someone that a lot of people would quite like to kill.

One of them - Kate Beckinsale's Lori - may hold the key to the mysterious Rekall, New Shanghai's villainous politico Coohagen (Bryan Cranston) and a whole world of trouble. Find out when Total Recall reaches our screens on August 29.

RE: I'm up for this!
Total Recall will render a 3D virtual modern world where players can engage in fierce PVP and explore outside environment. nd Legends by Just A Gamenique card game for me because it features the trading system. And Dotmmo will publish the complete review soon. More

I'm up for this!
Anyone smart enough to cast Bryan Cranston in a Barry Big-Bollocks actioner is okay with me. More
