What's it like to have your memory scrubbed? Well, if the marketing team behind "Total Recall" do their job right, then you will have forgotten about the 1990 film directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. And they've pumped out a few more images to help get that job done.

This latest incarnation of the Philip K. Dick story finds Colin Farrell in the lead as the man who just wants to escape reality, plunged into a conspiracy that may or may not be happening all inside his brain. Pass the Tylenol. Meanwhile, two beauties in the shape of Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale cross his path, neither of whom he is sure he can trust. So far the film looks like a serviceable sci-fi pic at best, and that opinion isn't boosted by the knowledge that schlocky Len Wiseman (two "Underworld" movies, "Live Free Or Die Hard") is behind the camera.

But there is a pretty decent supporting cast with Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, John Cho and Ethan Hawke (in a mystery role) lending their talents, so this could go either way. We'll find out on August 3rd. [Latino Review]
