As promised earlier, a new trailer has been released for the upcoming remake of Total Recall.

Interestingly, a new synopsis reveals further details that could set the film apart from the Paul Verhoeven directed 1990 film that starred Arnold Schwarznegger, Sharon Stone and Michael Ironside.

“As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on”

Does this mean the fight won’t be between the oppressed mutants of Mars and the ruthless dictator, Vilos Cohaagen?

One thing for sure is that the film looks more like a sequel to Minority Report than a remake of your typical 18 certificate Verhoeven movie that featured a woman with three boobs and as far as I could see, the filmmakers have stayed true to their word as there is no indication in the trailer that the proceedings will take place on Mars.

Directed by Len Wiseman and starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale, Total Recall is out later this year.

What do you make of the trailer? Feel free to comment below.
