Can you tell Sony Pictures is ramping up its marketing machine on behalf of Len Wiseman’s Total Recall reboot? First, we were given a teaser clip for an eventual trailer. And now we have a motion poster for the upcoming motion picture, which we’re sharing below courtesy of JoBlo:
The site also posted an exclusive one-sheet, which uses the same promotional image asking the audience, “What Is Real?”
That’s Colin Farrell playing Quaid, a factory worker who begins to suspect he might be living a double life as a spy. Arnold Schwarzenegger toplined to original Recall back in 1990, directed by Paul Verhoeven. The remake co-stars Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Ethan Hawke, Bill Nighy and Wiseman’s beautiful wife, Kate Beckinsale.
On Sunday, we’ll reportedly be able to see the full trailer for Recall, which will be in theaters on Aug. 3. Motion posters and teasers for trailers are fine, but I’m waiting to see the full trailer before determining if this remake is staying on my radar. I think Farrell’s a great choice for the lead, and I’m one of the few who thought Wiseman did a bang-up job with the fourth Die Hard. What can he do with an updated Recall? We’ll soon find out.
