If your idea of a good time involves mind-altering experiences, gun battles and encounters with tri-breasted alien hookers, you’ll be chuffed to bits with the new trailer for Total Recall.
Indeed, anyone who might have worried that the Colin Farrell-fronted remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 sci-fi classic might be a bit on the dour and cerebral side should be mollified by the new teaser, which is packed with more action than you can shake an AK-47 at:
The sci-fi world that director Len Wiseman has managed to whip up looks rather impressive too and, on the evidence of the scenes glimpsed in the new video, Total Recall should be a fun ride for fans of neck-breaking martial arts and cheesy one-liners.
Alas, there’s neither sign of the new-look Kuato creature in the teaser, nor any evidence of an equivalent to Benny the cabbie with five kids to feed from the original film but hey, there’ve got to be a few surprises left for the movie itself, right?
Boasting an impressive cast that includes Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel and Ethan Hawke, Total Recall will be blasting its way into British cinemas on Wednesday 29 August.
