I hear tell Kate Beckinsale decided to have an American accent when she’s playing Colin Farrell’s good girl wife in the upcoming “Total Recall” reboot, but then switches over to her native English accent when her character shows her true colors. I think that’s kinda cool. And hot. Really hot. Check out a new clip from the upcoming reboot, where Kate shows off her evil side.
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.
Besides the delightful Ms. Beckinsale, the film co-stars Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel, Ethan Hawke, John Cho, Bokeem Woodbine, and Will Yun Lee.
Len Wiseman directs the movie, scheduled to boot your brain August 3, 2012.
