The story centers on a commando (Hounsou) who is tasked with rescuing a French reporter (Kruger) from the clutches of the Taliban.

Available today on DVD and Blu-ray, TOTAL RECALL is a total re-imagining of the 1990 sci-fi classic that (for better or worse) starred ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER under the direction of PAUL VERHOEVEN. This time around, it’s COLIN FARRELL in the lead with LEN WISEMAN at the helm and, while there have been several changes, the bare bones remain the same.
We spoke with COLIN FARRELL at the time of the film’s theatrical release and he talked about being a fan of SCHWARZENEGGER’S original and how, against his better judgement, he re-watched the film before shooting. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
