This isn't your ... uh, father's "Total Recall"?

The let's-do-a-remake game continues with the first trailer from the reboot of the 1990 action hit starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In the new version, Colin Farrell takes over the Ah-nuld role of Douglas Quaid, a worker whose nightmares have lead him to believe he was once a spy whose memory has since been erased.

The role of Quaid's wife, Lori -- originally played by Sharon Stone -- is now played by Kate Beckinsale, and Rachel Ticotin's Melina has gone to Jessica Biel. (Unfortunately, this first trailer has no sign of the main villain, Vilos Cohaagen, played by Bryan Cranston.)

As you can see from the clip above, the big difference between the original film and the new one will likely be the special effects. The updated version has a sleek, futuristic design and slick camerawork. (Although, not sure Farrell's. Quaid would stand a chance against Schwarzenegger's.)

You can check out the HD trailer over on Apple.

"Total Recall" hits theaters August 3.
