In this splintered-reality mind-bender that features an iconic soundtrack by Academy Award-winner Jerry Goldsmith, it's the year 2084, and construction worker Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is haunted by dreams of Mars, a place he’s never been. Against his wife's (Sharon Stone) wishes, Quaid goes to Rekall, a memory-implant company that promises a thrilling virtual trip to the red planet. But what Quaid "remembers" is that he’s a secret agent whose cover has been blown… and that he must return to Mars at any cost.


The UK versions are expected to ship on November 23rd, with the Steelbook street dated for December 8th here in the states.
