“What Good Is Being An Outlaw When You Have Responsibilities?”
It’s been nearly six years since Breaking Bad wrapped up , and while creator Vince Gilligan continues to ply his trade in that same world with the spinoff series Better Call Saul, he’s also returning to one of Breaking Bad‘s most beloved characters.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, will be Gilligan’s feature directorial debut and a continuation of Jesse Pinkman’s storyline after the events of the Breaking Bad finale.
Aaron Paul returns to reprise the role of the former dosser who was pulled under the wing of future drug lord Walter White, and after a brief teaser earlier this month, we now have a full trailer that gives us a more detailed look at what happens in the upcoming movie.
Here it is:
The entire one-minute trailer focuses on Jesse sitting in an El Camino in the middle of the desert, listening to radio reports about the carnage leftover following Walter rescuing him from his neo-Nazi imprisonment.
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.
In a public statement to Gilligan on his Instagram account a few days ago, Emmy winner Paul wrote:

When I was a kid I used to sit on the floor of Barnes and Noble and flip through @hollywoodreporter to see what movies Hollywood was working on. To see that same kid (slightly older) now on the cover of that same magazine is truly an honor. Thank you Hollywood Reporter and thank you Rebecca Keegan for writing this story. Vince, I absolutely fucking adore you. I would follow you into a fire if you asked me to. That’s how much I trust you. Thank you for Pinkman. He is a broken and beaten kid struggling to survive and I feel blessed to have played him for so many years. He is a part of me. This next chapter you created with El Camino is nothing short of brilliant my friend. Heartbreaking but utterly brilliant. I love you brother. Can’t wait for the world to see what we have been keeping secret for so long. El Camino comes out in theaters and across the globe on Netflix on October 11th. #yeahbitch
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie arrives on Netflix on October 11, 2019, and will be playing in limited theaters as well.
