Netflix made Emmy viewers scream “Yeah, Bitch!” on Sunday when it unveiled the trailer for Aaron Paul’s long-awaited return as Jesse Pinkman in “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.”
The film takes place after the events of “Breaking Bad,” which aired its last episode in 2013, where Pinkman was last scene driving off in a state of relief and tears — in Todd Alquist’s (Jesse Plemons) El Camino. The synopsis of the film reads: In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.
The short trailer sees Pinkman in his El Camino in the middle of the New Mexico dessert, listening to car radio that is describing the events that took place at the end of “Breaking Bad,” and it appears that Pinkman is a wanted man following Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) massacre of the drug cartel that allowed Pinkman to escape.
Not much else is known about the film, except that Charles Baker and Matt Jones will return as Skinny Pete and Badger, respectively.
“El Camino” will premiere on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 11. It will also get a brief theatrical run from Oct. 11-13, the same weekend it premieres on Netflix. It will air on AMC, where “Breaking Bad” and its prequel spinoff, “Better Call Saul” call home, sometime next year.
The film was written and directed by “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan. It was produced by Paul, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth and Diane Mercer, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
