Source: SlashFilm

Synopsis: “Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) 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. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

We first had a first look at this last June at Empire's BIGSCREEN event in London, and it looked every bit as satisfying as this clip does. Clearly it's not meant for public viewing due to it's timecode and partially-done VFX. Nevertheless, it still gives us a sweet insight to what the film will look like.

A trailer is expected to come out this weekend for this, so expect a lot more 'epic' music and sound effects.

EDIT: Been taken down, as expected. Stay tuned for the trailer!
