For the second summer in a row Colin Farrell is starring in a remake of a cult classic. Instead of donning Chris Sarandon’s vampire fangs in Fright Night he’s filling the very large shoes, shirts, and pants of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead role in Total Recall.
In a post-apocalyptic future where only United Federation of Britain and The Colony (Australia) are fit for human life a dissatisfied factory worker named Douglas Quaid thinks he was meant for greater things. He decides to visit a company named Rekal, who claim to be able to implant fake memories that are just as realistic and vivid as his real ones. The implantation doesn’t go according to plan as finds himself on the run accused of being a spy.
