Directed by Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers) and featuring Schwarzenegger in one of his most popular roles, the new special edition triple play of Total Recall : Ultimate Rekall Edition, released by StudioCanal on 16th July 2012, includes several exciting bonus features not available before, including a new interview with Verhoeven discussing the film after 20 years, as well as a featurette on the visually stylish special effects of the time.
The year is 2084 and the world has survived its third world war. Two opposing government blocs rule the world. Mars has been colonized and is wracked by political unrest. On Earth construction worker Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger), a man with a beautiful wife, a good job and great friends, is dreaming constantly of Mars, of another life there and a mysterious woman. His wife Lori (Sharon Stone) worries he's becoming obsessed with the war torn planet and deters Quaid from taking an actual trip to the colony there, so he settles for the next best thing - a 'virtual vacation'.
Mega conglomerate Rekall has the technology to implant the memory of any holiday that a customer desires, one guaranteed to seem as real as the real thing. Quaid chooses the upgrade package - the opportunity to 'go' with a whole new identity, choosing that of a secret agent. But during the implant procedure something goes very wrong. A whole new personality that had been blocked from his mind violently awakes. His everyday world crumbles around him, a world in which everything - and everyone - he thinks he knows and experienced may be a fabrication.
Thrust into a fight for his life and relentlessly pursued by former his wife and former friends, Quaid travels to Mars to unravel who he is really working for and why. Is he really a spy, or is he just suffering from a massive paranoid delusion?
