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 for his frustrating life – real memories of a 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 Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Michael Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero
