We aren't in the dark about the remake of Total Recall to the same degree as we are for, say, The Dark Knight Rises. As the project has moved through production, we've picked up various details about director Len Wiseman's approach to the material, be it the fact that the story won't be returning to Mars, that the world has been split into two nationstates, and it will star the likes of Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho and Bill Nighy. There are, however, still some gaps in our knowledge about the movie, and while we won't be discovering all of those secrets until it comes out this summer, Sony has released the official plot synopsis.
As we expected, the movie will differ greatly from Paul Verhoven's 1990 flick, but it will keep us guessing about what is reality and what is just a dream. Check out the plot description below.
I actually really love a solid plot synopsis. Unlike a trailer, which will show you footage from almost the entire movie, what you read above is nothing but need to know information. In the case of Total Recall, the movie isn't due out until August, so it may still be some time before we get to see more. In the meantime, if you wish to know more about the remake, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
