Music for Total Recall
Presumed to have either disbanded, been extradited back to Wales or been killed in freak a gardening accident, we have thankfully succumbed to none of the former. We have in fact been busier than ever have been finishing off a score for a major computer game (more details to follow very shortly) and have been asked by the irrepressible Harry Gregson-Williams to work on the score for the gargantuan summer release, Total Recall.
Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. 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.
The film is due for general release on the 3rd of August 2012.
