Total Recall
"is a 2012 American science fiction action film remake of the 1990 film of the same name,
in turn loosely based on the 1966 short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick.
Unlike the original film and short story, the plot for the 2012 film does not include a trip to Mars,[3] and exhibits more political overtones...
Total Recall is directed by Len Wiseman ..."

Stars: Colin FarrellBokeem Woodbine and Bryan Cranston
