Let's just get this out of the way: this new trend of teasers for trailers is the fucking worst. But if you're gonna do it, then we at least have to tip our hat to Sony for doing it right. Forgoing the laughable ten-second treatment that usually seems to be the route these things follow, this thirty-second look at "Total Recall" at least offers up a decent amount of footage.

Let's just get this out of the way: this new trend of teasers for trailers is the fucking worst. But if you're gonna do it, then we at least have to tip our hat to Sony for doing it right. Forgoing the laughable ten-second treatment that usually seems to be the route these things follow, this thirty-second look at "Total Recall" at least offers up a decent amount of footage.

So, let's get into it. On the plus side, the budget looks like it was certainly spent and the future world, while slightly generic -- "Blade Runner" meets "The Fifth Element"? -- looks as impressive as it should. Being this brief, there's not much in the way of story or dialogue but we get some shots of Colin Farrell jumping around, explosions and a gratuitous ass shot of Kate Beckinsale, whose husband and director Len Wiseman, clearly admires her assets. As for the BRAAAAAAAAAAM score, can we be done with it already please?

Anyway, the full trailer will drop on Sunday, but until then, take a look at the teaser below and see if you feeling like hanging around the internet this weekend waiting for more footage. "Total Recall" opens August 3rd. [Apple]
