Bryan Cranston Is Terrifying in New ‘Total Recall’ Clip


Anyone who has ever drunkenly enjoyed the masterpiece of cheesy retro futurism that is Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 cult classic Total Recall already knows that it should not have been remade. But since the new version of Philip K. Dick’s “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” is coming whether we like it or not, we can at least appreciate that Bryan Cranston is playing Chancellor Vilos Cohagen. With the movie due out August 3rd, io9 points us to the first clip of Cohagen, which may actually convince us that Total Recall 2.0 is worth watching. It finds Cranston — who looks more like Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black than Walter White — giving some tense orders to Kate Beckinsale’s Lori Quaid. See the short video after the jump, and let us know whether it affects your position on an Arnold-free Total Recall.
