'Breaking Bad': New Teaser Previews Explosions, Fights and Lots of Money (Video)
The latest clip features Bryan Cranston's Walter White ascending to the top of the drug trade.
"There's a market to be filled and, currently, no one to fill it."
That's a gloriously emotionless Walter White (Bryan Cranston), newly crowned meth kingpin, in the third promo for Breaking Bad's upcoming fifth season.
The action-heavy segment is about as long as the second trailer but features lots more new footage, showing the rise of Walt and partner Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after they killed drug lord Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) in last season's mind-blowing finale.
The trailer opens with Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), Fring's former right-hand man, muttering, "You're a time bomb tick-ticking away, and I have no intention of being around for the boom," potentially a hint at Walt's rumored demise.
Walt and Jesse's business ambitions are clear, with shots of a money-counting machine and the boys' meth lab. But then the action ramps up -- shots are fired, a plane swoops low a la North By Northwest, a dead body plunges into a pool -- and the segment ends with Walt's grim line from the first teaser: "We're done when I say we're done."
Season 5 will return July 15 on AMC, but the first episode will air a day earlier at Comic-Con in San Diego. The screening will accompany a panel with Cranston, Paul, creator Vince Gilligan as well as supporting cast Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte and Banks.
