Bryan Cranston is creepy awesome in tense new Total Recall clip

Though the film opens tomorrow, and we've seen a ton of action footage, the studio has managed to keep most of Bryan Cranston's scenes as Total Recall's Big Bad under wraps. Now they've finally let loose a new clip showing the Breaking Bad star in action.

Cranston definitely commands the room, and it seems he'll be a formidable foe for our new Quaid (Colin Farrell). Plus, c'mon, the dude is totally badass.

The film opens Friday, and here's a synopsis if you need a refresher:

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 from his frustrating life—real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when he 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.
Check out the clip below:

So what do you think of Cranston's take on the film's Big Bad?
