Reemerging from rubble of upcoming summer movies that existed before The Avengers’ box office dominion and the premiere of the third and final The Dark Knight Rises trailer, the Total Recall remake is stumbling forth from the wreckage to remind the world that it exists, and still plans on rearing its rebooted head on August 3—this time, via a series of new action images from the film.
In a series of new shots from the film recently released on the film’s website, we can see stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale cocking eyebrows, pointing guns and things, and splashed in blood as they parade within a remake/re-adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.
In the film, Farrell plays factory worker Douglas Quaid who, despite being married to Kate freaking Beckinsale, decides he needs to take a fake vacation from his life in which the memories of a super-spy are implanted into his brain. Things get muddy, however, when after the implantation, the state police arrive and accuse Quaid of actually being a spy—forcing Quaid to team up with a freedom fighter (Jessica Biel) while facing off against a corrupt Chancellor (Bryan Cranston) as reality and fantasy begin to blur together. Also, according to the trailer, lots of guns and CGI.
Total Recall is set to hit theaters on August 3.
