First Poster Banner for TOTAL RECALL Featuring Dissolving Colin Farrell

     March 27, 2012


We brought you the teaser for the teaser trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake earlier today, and now the first poster banner has gone online. The official first trailer hits this Sunday, but it’s clear from the teaser teaser and this poster that Wiseman has crafted a fairly different take on Total Recall than Paul Verhoeven’s adaptation. The futuristic city design on this poster is actually pretty cool, and Colin Farrell‘s character definitely has a commanding presence even if little pieces of him are softly floating away. If this dissolving pixel effect is implying that Farrell also stars as Shatterbeast in Snow White and the Huntsman, this summer just got 1000% cooler.

Hit the jump to check out the poster, and be sure to come back to the site on Sunday to watch the full trailer. Total Recall opens on August 3rd.

Here’s the 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) whom 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) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy).  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.  The film is directed by Len Wiseman. The screenplay is by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback and the screen story is by Ronald Shusett & Dan O’Bannon and Jon Povill. The producers are Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe.
