Netflix teased the “Breaking Bad” movie coming to the video streaming service on October 11th. The company dropped a teaser trailer to announce the movie, and gave fans the title of the project and the release date. The “Breaking Bad” movie is called “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” and the official description 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.”
Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad,” wrote and directed the movie for Netflix. The former stars of the show, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, have been teasing the movie for weeks on social media, and now its all coming together. Cranston’s role in the movie is unclear, but we don’t expect any major twists involving his character to change the events of the original story.
Fans of the series should recognize Skinny Pete in the new trailer, who seems to be in an interrogation room. It seems that the police are on the hunt for Jesse Pinkman, who drove away in the series finale in an El Camino with hopes of a better future. Netflix released the teaser on social media, simply telling fans, “Skinny Pete is brought in for questioning.”
Aaron Paul, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, and Diane Mercer produced the movie. With the back to school crowd in full swing, and primetime cable returning in full force, September and October are busy months for Netflix. In September the big releases are “The Spy: Season 1,” “Elite: Season 2,” “Tall Girl,” “Between Two Ferns: The Movie,” “Skylines: Season 1,” and “The Politician.” October already has the “Breaking Bad” movie and “The Kominsky Method: Season 2,” and many more specials, movies, and series will be added to the schedule in September.
