A short snippet of footage of the remake of Total Recall has emerged online.

The 30 second clip shows how closely the re-boot appears to mirror the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger hit about a man who undergoes a memory implant process that may have gone according to plan, or may ahve revealed his secret life.

The new version will see Colin Farrell attempt to fill Schwarzenegger's sizeable boots, accompanied by Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Bill Nighy and it will be released on August 22.

The original film achieved iconic cult status and its fans gave a mixed reaction when it was revealed that a remake was in the works. Its reception in August will see whether this new Total Recall proves too familiar.
