Now this is a breathtaking trailer. Once you watch it you just can’t wait to see the movie…
(wait till August 3rd though). Sounds a bit like Prometheus trailer. No special music but impressive sound and visual effects. The story is not new. We have seen memory erase in Cospiracy Theory (1997) with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts, the Bourne movies with Matt Damon, and Total Recall (1990) with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes, the same movie title. Both movies are based on the short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick, so the story is very similar. A worker (Colin Farrell) finds out that his memory has been erased. Being a spy before he begins to recall his past skills. Will he make it better than Arnie?
