'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything you need to know about Netflix's upcoming sequel
Set after the events of the acclaimed 'Breaking Bad' series finale 'Felina', the upcoming Netflix film will most likely focus on Jesse Pinkman following his jubilant escape
Fans of 'Breaking Bad', attention: it is finally time for you to find out the trials and tribulations of Jesse Pinkman following that ever so teasing escape he made thanks to his mentor, Walter White. Chronicling the high school dropout turned chemistry wizard's life after he fled from captivity in the season finale of the AMC thriller 'Breaking Bad', Netflix's 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' will focus on Aaron Paul's Pinkman. Our beloved Heisenberg aka Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is, however, set to reprise his role as the high school teacher turned meth-mafia in the upcoming sequel. Here's all you need to know about it.
'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' is set to premiere on Netflix this coming October 11.
Set after the events of the acclaimed 'Breaking Bad' series finale, 'Felina', the upcoming Netflix film has barely dropped any details about the plot, per se. Based on the trailer, however, it looks like Pinkman is still hiding successfully from the cops, who have brought in his friend, Skinny Pete in for questioning. Pete tells the cops about things that were done to Pinkman to keep him 'cooking' meth, and Pete doesn't look the slightest bit close to budging whatever information he might possibly have on Pinkman. This leads to speculation that Pinkman and his former mentor cum best friend Walter White could have reached out to him after he helped him escape, and the two are up to something far more dangerous now. Only October 11 will tell!
Netflix has revealed that their upcoming sequel on show will come from series creator Vince Gilligan himself. The American writer, producer, and director is best known for the AMC show, and its spin-off, called 'Better Call Saul'.
Aaron Paul will return to reprise his three-time Emmy Award-winning role of Jesse Pinkman, he crystal meth cook and drug dealer, who worked alongside Heisenberg and was his right-hand man until the job took most of the things he held dear.
Bryan Cranston is expected to return as the infamous Heisenberg, aka the loving dad-turned-drug dealer, Walter White. Charles Baker plays the role of Pinkman's loyal confidante, Skinny Pete. Bob Odenkirk can also be expected to pop in as the titular Saul from the spin-off, while Walter White's family, especially Anna Gunn could pop by as Skyler White too.
The first official trailer — a sneak peek if you will — is already here, thanks to Netflix. Tip-toeing around the Spanish title, which translates to "The Road", the little clip shows Pinkman's closest friend being called in for interrogation and indicates that a large chunk of the movie will focus on Jesse Pinkman following his escape.
Netflix dropped a 3-minute trailer for the movie September 10. The trailer begins with Jesse on camera, being asked to confess his story by a pair of law enforcement officers. It then moves into a surreal montage of scenes from the troubled hero's life filled with drugs, violence, love, heartbreak and ultimately madness. The unearthly feel of the trailer is further accentuated by the song 'Enchanted' by Chloe X Halle that plays throughout. The trailer finally ends with Jesse driving off into the night, laughing like a maniac.
A full official trailer dropped two days after the Emmy's commercial was released. The trailer features Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman knocking on the door of his friend, Skinny Pete (Charles Baker), and things do not look good for him. He is visibly hurt, with scars on his face and he looks feral in that first shot of the trailer. The film is set after the events of the 'Breaking Bad' series finale where we saw Jesse make an impressive escape from captivity with the help of Walter White (Bryan Cranston). The trailer sees Jesse picking up pieces of his life, and trying to move forward but he is a wanted suspect. The trailer also hints at Jesse in search of something. It is unclear what exactly he hopes to find and finally, we also see Jesse possibly meeting his mentor again. In the end, we hear the voice of Walter White go "Are you ready?" but we do not see him. His role in the film has been kept under wraps as of now.
