TOTAL RECALL (2012): First Footage from Taiwanese Promo TV Spot

Total Recall First Footage. The first footage from Total Recall (2012) is from a Taiwanese promo TV spot for the Len Wiseman directed film. I believe it is a promo clip because some of the effects in the film seem unfinished though that might be just be the quality of the clip itself. The promo clip is thirty seconds but shows a lot of action from the film, The Bourne Identity action.

Total Recall‘s plot synopsis: “‘Total Recall’ is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.”
