A new clip from the Len Wiseman ‘Total Recall’ remake has hit the web today and it features Colin Farrell kicking some major butt. Basically, it’s just an extended version of what we’ve seen in some trailers, so it’s not entirely new, but hey, it’s something.
In the clip, Farrell’s character Quaid is about to undergo a procedure that let’s a person escape reality and have a whole new identity implanted into their brain, but it seems that something is askew, which leads to the butt kicking. Check out the clip below, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, followed by a synopsis of the film:
‘Total Recall’ is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story ‘We Can Remember It For You Wholesale’ by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he’s got a beautiful wife 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, the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter to find the head of the underground resistance 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.
