Based on the Philip K Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, the movie follows a factory worker (Farrell) who begins to suspect that his memory has been tampered with and his life is a lie.
Beckinsale previously promised that the remake would be "very different" from the 1990 Paul Verhoeven movie adaptation.
Co-star Jessica Biel has said that her fight scene with Beckinsale "isn't overly sexy".
The new Total Recall movie arrives in US cinemas on August 3 and in the UK on August 22.
