"Total Recall" has introduced a preview for its first trailer, which will be released during the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat on Sunday, April 1. Without featuring any dialogue, the snippet offers glimpses at some action-packed footage, including the ones that see Kate Beckinsale aiming a gun and Colin Farrell riding a flying car.
A remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 sci-fi movie, this upcoming action film revolves around a factory worker named Douglas Quaid. He begins to believe that he's a spy, but he doesn't know whether he should work for the nation states of Euromerica or New Shanghai. In the meantime, leader of Euromerica, Vilos Cogaagen, is secretly preparing an invasion of New Shanghai under the guise of protecting his people.
In January, director Len Wiseman opened up that the upcoming film will feature a lot of "fun action" scenes. He gushed, "It's either the fantasy or reality. That's the thing that I think is the most exciting. It's got a load of really fun action sequences and visuals, and a whole new world to experience as well, that is really fun, but what makes that all super-engaging is this constant mystery of what world we're existing in, whether it's his fantasy or reality."
Slated for an August 3 release in the U.S., "Total Recall" also stars Jessica Biel, John Cho, Bill Nighy, Bryan Cranston and Ethan Hawke.
