After a couple of moody teasers, we finally have a full trailer for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Picking up mere moments after the series finale, the highly anticipated movie sequel to Breaking Bad has been wrapped in secrecy since its inception. Series creator Vince Gilligan recently revealed that the movie is 100% aimed at the hardcore fans of Breaking Bad.
“If, after 12 years, you haven’t watched Breaking Bad, you’re probably not going to start now. We don’t slow down to explain things to a non-Breaking Bad audience. I thought early on in the writing of the script, ‘Maybe there’s a way to have my cake and eat it too. Maybe there’s a way to explain things to the audience.’ If there was a way to do that, it eluded me.”
Aaron Paul reprises his award-winning role as Jesse when we last saw him, Jesse was free, on the road and driving as fast as he could to leave the past far behind. However, the past can’t be avoided forever, and Jesse still has a fight on his hands to safeguard his future. We might have to wait until next year before we get more Better Call Saul, but El Camino more than makes up for its absence. Naturally, fans are wondering if Bryan Cranston will be making an appearance of some kind (flashback, force ghost), but the recent confirmation that a dead character (who I won’t name here) will be making a cameo, it’s not impossible that Cranston could pop up somehow.
The good news is we don’t have long to wait as Full El Camino: A Breaking Bad arrives on Netflix on October 11. So there is still time to binge-watch all five seasons of Breaking Bad.
