With just weeks to go until the film hits theaters, Total Recallwants to prove to fans this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con that it’s more than just a shot-by-shot remake of the original film. Though response to trailers so far have been mixed, it’s unclear just how the film will do in terms of box office or audience acclaim. While the Sony panel later this week will look to point reception in the right direction. Now to join the film’s promotion, Sony has released an all-new poster for the film that features the key trio of actors.
Euroamerica (formerly North America and the European Union) and New Shanghai (formerly China and South East Asia) fight for political power in the far dystopian future in the year 2084. A simple factory worker suffering from violent nightmares (Colin Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy whose memory and personality were erased and replaced – though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on and how important his lost memories will be in its outcome.
What matters to him the most is that he must team up with a young female freedom fighter (Jessica Biel) in order for both of them to change the political system in their own country, Euroamerica, which is currently controlled by the ruthless Euroamerican President Vilos Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston) and his government that rules with extreme austerity.
Total Recall, directed by Len Wiseman, hits theaters on August 3rd.
