This past weekend at Comic Con AMC had the opportunity to speak with "Total Recall" star Bryan Cranston about why this is the perfect time to revisit the fantastical world of "Recall," his take on his character Chancellor Cohaagen, the tone of the film and his relationship with co-star Colin Ferrell.
Take a look at the video interview below.
Bryan Cranston Talks Total Recall At Comic Con 2012:
"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 from his frustrating life - real memories of 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.
Len Wiseman directs a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.
"Total Recall" opens in theatres on August 3, 2012
