Recalling a Classic: Total Recall Remake

Shame on me that the only Philip K. Dick movie that I saw is the Adjustment Bureau.  Well I did saw Total Recall and Minority Report but never really watch it wholeheartedly and maybe I just saw it once or twice.  Good thing Columbia Pictures is bringing back a classic and I will be given the chance to enjoy another great material.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (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 (Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (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.

Now I have a slight faint of recollection of the first Total Recall movie.  Other than being advance on special effects, one biggest difference is the strong political theme of this new one.  With the bad reputation of remakes, I'm definitely expecting so much for this film and I really don't want to be disappointed.  Well at least I have good reasons to see this -- Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale, hehe.  Well maybe it is also a good idea to see the original Total Recall and Minority Report just to refresh my memory.

Opening in August 22, 2012 on local cinemas, “Total Recall” is to be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
