Breaking Bad movie 'El Camino' will drop on Netflix October 11
Two days ago, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk revealed that the much-anticipated Breaking Bad movie had finished filming and would soon be making its way onto our screens.
In an interview with Movie Web regarding the upcoming season of spin-off Better Call Saul, the conversation inevitably turned the confidential movie. And although Odenkirk was careful not to give too much away, he did confirm that it had wrapped:
"I don't know what people know and don't know. I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret."
Everything about the movie was shrouded in secrecy - the title, plot, returning cast members - but thankfully, Netflix has the first look at the Breaking Bad movie - titled El Camino (translated to 'The Way' in English) - in the form of a new teaser trailer.
Check out the amazing trailer below, and see if you can spot some familiar faces:
As you can see from the trailer, Charles Baker returns as Jesse's loyal friend Skinny Pete, as he is interrogated by the authorities over Pinkman's whereabouts. Pete says he doesn’t know where he is; but if he did, he wouldn’t tell them, as he references the cage Jesse was kept in by the Aryan Brotherhood in the final season.
Therefore, we can presume that this movie is indeed going to be a sequel to the show, detailing what happened to Jesse's after his dramatic escape from the Brotherhood.
(Eagle-eyed fans will also spot pictures of detective Hank Schrader and Steven Gomez hanging on a wall. Ah, I'm trying so hard not to cry just remembering that episode...)
However, actor Aaron Paul has been very tight-lipped about the plot of the movie, but in an interview with The New York Times, he expressed his delight over its eventual creation. Paul said:
"It’s a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn’t realize that I wanted, and now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there."
The Emmy award winner also revealed his first reaction after reading the 'El Camino' script:
"I couldn’t speak for a good 30, 60 seconds. I was just lost in my thoughts. As the guy who played the guy, I was so happy that Vince wanted to take me on this journey."
Paul has spent months trolling Breaking Bad fans perfectly on Twitter, along with co-star Bryan Cranston:
It has not been revealed yet whether or not Cranston will be returning to reprise his role as Mr White (remember, the show only ended with an officer checking his pulse), but that final tweet certainly looks like both stars are trying to find 'the way' out of something.
Fans first became excited about a potential movie back in November of last year, when The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan had signed a two year deal with Sony Pictures Television to create a two-hour spin-off movie.
