New Total Recall clip homages the original film: watch now

Exclusive look at an action scene from the Colin Farrell-starring remake

Total Recall has added a new clip to its roster of promo material, and you can take an exclusive look at it below.

The film is a remake of the über-violent sci-fi starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and this latest clip pays an unmistakeable homage to its predecessor.

To set the scene… it takes place at a high-tech security check, as a suspicious looking passenger tries to make their way through. Sound familiar? Unlike the equivalent character in the 1990 movie, this sneaky customer presumably isn’t trying to make their way to Mars, as that location as has been jettisoned in the remake.

Check out the exclusive Total Recall scene in full below:



Len Underworld Wiseman is directing Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale in the new version of Total Recall, which opens on 29 August 2012.

Glad to see Wiseman paying tribute to the original Total Recall? Tell us below!

      The scene is similar, also they put that lady in that kind of looks like the lady that Arnold disguised himself as when he went to mars. Totally did that on purpose.

      clever. toys with the audiences expectations. I miss the over-acting face-contorting tho. I remember when i was 11 or 12 and the original came out and everyone at school was yanking on their faces yelling "Twoooooo-weeeeeeks twooooo weeeeeekkssss" for ages. The teachers probably thought we were all on drugs

      I just don't see the point in this at all.. it's pretty much exactly the same.. I thought they were doing something new?

      Talk about subtle product placement - they're being scanned through giant iPhones!
