New TV spot for Total Recall: watch now

"Tell us your fantasy"

Total Recall has released a new TV spot online, featuring a few new snippets of footage as Colin Farrell goes on the run from the shadowy figures who've messed with his mind.

Farrell plays Douglas Quaid, a bored factory worker who pays a visit to memory-modifying company Rekall for a virtual holiday from his day-to-day tedium. However, when his brain adventure as a super-spy goes horribly wrong, he finds himself a hunted man in the real world.

When even his wife (Kate Beckinsale) turns out to be working against him, things begin to look grim for Quaid. However, he does have one ally in the form of arse-kicking freedom fighter Jessica Biel, and the two of them set out to seek help from Bill Nighy's underground resistance leader.

Take a look at the new spot, below…

As with the last trailer, the action is beginning to look a little beefier with this one, while Farrell does a good line in mingling charisma with blind panic. And then there are Biel and Beckinsale, who are both old hands at this kind of high-kicking fare.

Directed by Len Wiseman, Total Recall opens in the UK on 22 August 2012. And praise be! The girl with the three breasts has safely made the journey from the original...

What do you make of the latest TV spot? Tell us, below!

      The original is also being released this summer in a new hi def version. I highly recommend going to see that instead.

      Haha have just just seen a comparison of the two on Youtube called 'Total Ripoff', the original still has the best effects. Seriously the X-Ray machine, hasn't dated despite being over 20 years old. 20 YEARS! Some of you were still in Pampers lol

      Me too now, thanks for that Hadouken. I said this other day but I genuinely can't see the point in this remake.. it is exactly the same.Maybe we should try and start a petition to get everyone to see the Arnie version instead.. I know that's what I'm going to see

      ^i can only assume the point is to bolster Arnie's case for some kind of honorary oscar by re-doing his old films (Conan, Terminator salvation, this) but nowhere near as good? That, and the modest profit this might make..but why cant they remake the rubbish? Red Heat wasnt that good...

      Am i the only person who thought the original wasn't "all that and a bag of chips"? Yes it was ok, a good action movie but i don't think it has aged very well if I'm being honest, not like Alien has. This doesn't really apply to this site as most comments are well reasoned, but with these remakes, it's not the reading of the comments of hate I'm bored with, it's the smugness of hipsters who love pointing out how sophisticated and clever they think they are for having already seen the original.

      @2Dglasses But Red Heat had James Belushi in it, and that's a WIN in my book! Besides, it would be better if they stuck to the original Philip K Dick short story and didn't remake (can you reboot a single film?) the 1990 film (albeit with some major changes) then I could see it being worth it. But I'll still go see it...if my wife hasn't given birth by then...
