Check Out 'Total Recall' Starring Colin Farrell, Now On DVD, Blu-ray & More
Originally adapted to film in 1990, author Philip K. Dick's classic sci-fi short story - "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" - returns to the big screen in "Total Recall," a remake starring Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, and Kate Beckinsale.
The planet has been decimated by nuclear war in the late 21st century, leaving only two nations - the United Federation of Britain and the Colony. Douglas Quaid (Farrell) is a factory worker with a stable job and a loving wife (Beckinsale), but upon learning that a company named Rekall could grant him the memory of the ultimate espionage adventure, he decides that a virtual vacation is better than no vacation at all.
But in the midst of having the new memories implanted, something goes haywire. Still strapped to the chair as the system breaks down, he's branded a spy as the authorities close in, and quickly flees for his life.
Later, Quaid discovers that he has a secret identity, and he joins forces with rebel soldier Melina (Jessica Biel) on a mission to track down Matthias (Bill Nighy), the head of a fierce resistance movement that's been labeled a terrorist organization by the tyrannical Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston).
Cohaagen seeks to control the entire free world, and now the harder Quaid fights to defeat him, the clearer it becomes that his memory had been altered long before he walked into Rekall.
"Total Recall" is available now as a 3-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, 2-Disc Blu-ray, and DVD, all with UltraViolet from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
