Total Recall trailer arrives: watch now

Total Recall has released a first, full length trailer online, in which Colin Farrell finds himself on the run when his brain is wiped and another man's memories implanted in place of his own.

Stuck in a rut in his life as a factory worker, Farrell's character heads to Rekall, a company offering virtual vacations via memory implants installed in the brain. Farrell fancies an adventure as a super-spy, but when the procedure goes wrong, he soon finds himself a hunted man.

Forced underground as he flees the police, Farrell teams up with Jessica Biel's resistance fighter as he attempts to rediscover his true identity, working out just what is real and what is recall.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

It certainly seems heavy on the action, and as promised, the Mars-centric storyline of the Arnie-starring original appears to have been scrapped entirely. In fact, it looks more reminiscent of Minority Report in its man-on-the-run plot line and futuristic setting.

Co-starring Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy and Bokeem Woodbine, Total Recall will open in the UK on 22 August 2012.
