I know I wasn’t the only man who was sceptical when Hollywood announced it would be remaking the iconic Schwarzenegger film Total Recall with Colin Farrell. But judging by the latest trailer for the action sci-fi flick, it looks like it might actually be pretty good.

Of course, there’s a real tendency for trailers to vastly overpromise the quality of the film, but the roguish Farrell seems to own the role in this two and a half minute trailer, especially given Arnie was so good in the original role.

The film’s set to launch in Australia on September 6. Who’s planning on checking it out?
