Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 film “Total Recall” offered up a shockingly violent adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale,” but it remains to be seen how faithfully Len Wiseman’s upcoming take on the tale keeps to the source material. Thanks to some new photos snapped during this week’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, we have our first indication of how Wiseman’s version of the story will look on the big screen. has snapped a few photos of the futuristic police vehicle and a pair of robotic law enforcement officers stationed across the street from the Comic-Con convention center. The site also snapped a few close-up photos of the “Federal Police” logo on the props, which are also emblazoned with the seal of the “United Federation of Britain.”

In the now-filming remake of “Total Recall,” Colin Farrell takes on the role of Douglas Quaid, the character played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original film. The tale finds Quaid caught up in a planet-spanning conspiracy after a decision to implant fabricated vacation memories in his brain awakens a new, violent personality.

Bryan Cranston will play the film’s villain, with Bill Nighy, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and John Cho also joining the cast.

Earlier this year, producer Neal Moritz indicated that Wiseman’s version of “Total Recall” would stay closer to Dick’s original story than the 1990 film, which famously had to work its way down from an “X” rating due to the level of violence in the initial cut.

“Total Recall” is expected to hit theaters August 3, 2012. Click on the image below to see more from ComingSoon’s gallery.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
