The latest 80s movie to get the Hollywood remake treatment is TOTAL RECALL. But, we ask, can it really be the same without Arnold Schwarzenegger??
In this version directed by Len Wiseman, Colin Farrell takes on Arnie’s role, and Kate Beckinsale plays his ‘wife’ (originally played by Sharon Stone). Jessica Biel and our favourite science-teacher-turned-meth-cooker Bryan Cranston as ‘Chancellor Cohaagen’ also feature.
Set in the future, factory worker Quaid (Colin Farrell) is desperate for a reprieve from his mundane life and heads to ‘Rekall’- a company that can turn your dreams into real memories. After Rekall insert a program as an ‘international spy’ things go awry and Quaid finds himself on the run from police as he tries to figure out what is fantasy and what is reality.

Total Recall is in cinemas September 6.
