New Total Recall clip homages the original film: watch now

Total Recall has added a new clip to its roster of promo material, and you can take an exclusive look at it below.

The film is a remake of the über-violent sci-fi starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and this latest clip pays an unmistakeable homage to its predecessor .

To set the scene… it takes place at a high-tech security check, as a suspicious looking passenger tries to make their way through. Sound familiar? Unlike the equivalent character in the 1990 movie, this sneaky customer presumably isn’t trying to make their way to Mars, as that location as has been jettisoned in the remake.

Check out the exclusive Total Recall scene in full below:


Len Underworld Wiseman is directing Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale in the new version of Total Recall , which opens on 29 August 2012.
