First Trailer Drops For El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
The first trailer has dropped for the long-awaited Breaking Bad spin-off movie, helpfully titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Check it out below:
The trailer for the Netflix Original promises a release date of 11 October 2019 - which is excitingly soon.
It's been anticipated that the film would pick up where the series left off, following the show's dramatic conclusion in 2013, which left fans with many unanswered questions about the fates of various characters - especially Walter White's erstwhile partner-in-meth, Jesse Pinkman.
So does this trailer give us any more clues? 'Kind of' is the answer. It opens in what appears to be a police interrogation room, and it swiftly becomes apparent that the accompanying voiceover comes from Jesse's one-time friend and drug runner, Skinny Pete.
And who's he talking about? Well... this swiftly becomes apparent.
"I don't know what to tell you," says Pete, played by Charles Baker. Not very helpful, but stick with him.
He continues: "I said, like, 500 times already, I've no idea where he is. Don't know where he's headed either. North, south, west, east, Mexico, the Moon... I don't have a clue.
"But yo, even if I did? I wouldn't tell you, 'cause I've been watching the news, same as everybody else. I seen that little cage of his they kept him in. I heard about what all they did to him to make sure he kept cooking.
"So sorry, I don't know what to tell you, but no way I'm helping you people put Jesse Pinkman back inside a cage."
Intriguing, huh? That's where the trailer cuts out, although we do get a release date and confirmation of the title.
Last time we saw Jesse, of course, was at the end of Breaking Bad's final season, as he found himself caught in a gunfight with sinister gang leader Jack's men, which eventually saw a wounded Walter asking his former partner to kill him - but, of course, Jesse refused.
As the final scene played out we could see Jesse grabbing Jack's car, an El Camino - oh right, the title - before screeching away.
So it sounds like his escape hasn't quite been a stress-free departure from his old life - it seems he's a wanted man. Dunno about you, but I am here for this premise.
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that filming had wrapped on the movie when Bob Odenkirk (better known as Saul Goodman to Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fans) told Movie Web: "I don't know what people know and don't know. I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret."
Well, the secret's on its way out of the box now. Bring on 11 October.
