The video contains glimpses at the crazy-complicated shooting of some action sequences. You'll see flipping cars, actors dangling from wires, swirly high-tech camera rigs, big dolly moves, and even actors pretending to beat the living hell from each other.
Mostly, though, you'll see the ridiculously photogenic leads Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale talking about their characters and the film as a whole.
This look behind the scenes of Total Recall is the work of Entertainment Weekly.
We know for sure that, unlike its cinematic predecessor, this Total Recall won't take the story to Mars, which was a crucial setting in Verhoeven's happily deranged film. It remains unknown, however, whether the new film will contain nudity from a triple-breasted woman. Mark that down as unlikely.
He's not present in this video featurette, but the new film's cast also includes three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston, now known to the world as Mr. White aka Heisenberg on the AMC series Breaking Bad. Cranston's playing the movie's big bad, Chancellor Vilos Cohaagen, a version of which was played by Ronny Cox many moons ago. The supporting cast also includes John Cho, Bokeem Woodbine, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawke, and Brooks Darnell.
Total Recall is set to arrive in theaters on August 3rd, when it'll go head to head with The Bourne Legacy.
