The first trailer for Len Wiseman’s (Underworld) reboot of Total Recall dropped earlier this week, but now we have a look at some behind-the-scenes action as well as a bit of character information from the stars themselves. In this featurette, Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale talk about their respective characters as well as their experience during the shoot. Total Recall follows Douglas Quaid (Farrell) who uses the company, Rekall, to implant memories of life as a secret agent into his otherwise dull existence. The plan apparently backfires as his beautiful wife (Beckinsale) then tries to kill Quaid, who then teams up with a (beautiful) rebel fighter (Biel). Total Recall, also starring Billy Nighy, Bryan Cranston and John Cho opens August 3rd. Hit the jump to see the featurette.
Check out the featurette after the official synopsis for Total Recall:
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 (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate 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 (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill 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.
