The 'Breaking Bad' and 'El Camino' casts reunited at movie premiere and fans are nostalgic
It's been several years since the finale to Breaking Bad aired, and even now the series is regarded as one of the best TV series of all time.
Since then, we've had a spin-off hit our screens in the form of Better Call Saul, which shows how Irish conman Slippin' Jimmy McGill became Heisenberg's consigliere. But now a new movie, entitled ''El Camino'', is about to drop on Netflix, which will allegedly show what happened to Walter's partner-in-crime, Jessie Pinkman, after his escape from a vicious gang of Neo-Nazis.
Watch the trailer for El Camino in the video below:
The movie is due to air on the streaming service on October 11, and it's just had its premiere. The early reviews have been pretty favourable, with critics lavishing praise on Aaron Paul's performance.
But for Breaking Bad fans, an even more emotional experience was getting to see the cast of the original show reunite after so long. Several members of the old team, including series creator Vince Gilligan, joined forces on the red carpet in Los Angeles to see Jessie's story play out on the big screen.
In attendance at the premiere were actors Aaron Paul (Jessie Pinkman), Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Dean Norris (Hank Schrader) Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) Krysten Ritter (Jane Margolis), Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring), Jesse Plemons (Todd Alquist) Matt Jones (Badger) and Matt Jones (Skinny Pete). Other celebrities included Mark Hamill and Kirsten Dunst, the partner of Jesse Plemons.
There's also been some speculation about whether or not Walter White will appear in the movie. Cranston himself has reiterated that he would be happy to reprise the role of White, even if it was only in the form of a movie.
Per NME, the Emmy-award-winner stated: "There’s a question of whether we’d even see Walter White in this movie. If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely. He’s a genius. It’s a great story, and there’s a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some sort of completion to some of these storylines that were left open."
