Columbia Pictures has been releasing fun behind-the-scenes featurettes recently for their upcoming remake/reimagining of Total Recall. While this version allegedly sticks more closely to the original Phillip K. Dick short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, we do not get to go to Mars this time around, unfortunately. However, the film does have an impressive hover car chase scene that we have seen in every trailer for the film that looks spectacular enough on its own to get butts into theaters this weekend to see the movie anyway. This new featurette shows us how they took a more practical approach to the chase scene, and you can now watch it after the jump!
Official 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.
