Total Recall Trailer: Colin Farrell Wants You to Forget

The opening of this new look at Len Wiseman's 2012 take on Total Recall will take you back to Ahnold and RoboCop helmer Paul Verhoeen's 1990 version of the Philip K. Dick tale. Then hardly anything else will. There's a blonde, mysterious John Cho, loads of intensity and Matrixiness, concussive blasts and soundtrack bursts that hammer down suspiciously like BRAAAAAM, plus a tiny flash of Cranston-as-villain at the close. And it all looks a lot more exciting than we had any right to expect! If Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel can make us forget this, it's mission accomplished.
