Sony Pictures unleashes their big-budget, Len Wiseman-directed “Total Recall” reboot next week, when they’re probably hoping that Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” run out of enough steam to relinquish it’s hold on first place at the box office. (This, of course, is going under the assumption that neither “The Watch” or the latest “Step Up” movie challenges Bats for the top spot later this Friday.) Until then, check out five clips from the upcoming sci-fi actioner.
For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he’s got a beautiful wife 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 as he finds himself on the run from the police.
Starring Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel, Ethan Hawke, John Cho, Bokeem Woodbine, and Will Yun Lee.
The fightin’ and runnin’ begins August 3, 2012.
