The new trailer for Total Recall is out, giving us new footage, new action, and a glimpse at the infamous three-breasted prostitute from the 1990 version. For fans of author Philip K. Dick, action films, and um, prostitutes, this is the trailer for you.
For the rest of us, in between footage of body-tossing, gun-wielding chaos, we get a sense of the story: there’s something in the head of our protagonist, something that’s been activated after a trip to a facility called Rekall. Given conflicting information, he doesn’t know who to trust. The trailer gives us the mind-bending hallmarks of a good Dick story, and it’s for this reason that I’m really excited about the upcoming film.
I loves me my action. But it’s a good story that will make me shell out for the price of a movie ticket. It’s looking as if Total Recall will make me $14’s poorer and hopefully slightly richer for the experience of watching it.
Total Recall will open in the United States on August 3, 2012.
