El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie finally receives a full-length trailer.
Next month, Netflix is releasing the feature film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which sees the return of Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman, the character that won him multiple Emmy Awards. Years after the finale of Breaking Bad, Jesse is somehow in an even more difficult spot, and El Camino tracks his return to “normal life,” if there is such a thing for him any more. As you can probably guess, things don’t stay too normal for too long, and Jesse is thrown right back into the world of crime, a point that was made even clearer by the release of the full El Camino trailer.
Unlike the first two previews, which were essentially full clips, this is cut as a more traditional trailer. It doesn’t reveal much more about the story than was already known, but still somewhat fleshes out the bare bones of the narrative. After regrouping at Skinny Pete’s (following his escape from Uncle Jack’s gang), Jesse goes on the run as a refuge trying to elude both sides of the law. What remains a mystery for the time being is what exactly the endgame is here, as Jesse grapples with his past. It’ll be interesting to see what exactly the plot is and how Jesse is going to go about forging “some kind of future.” The trailer hints at some kind of climactic showdown, with an unknown figure asking Jesse if he’s ready. Viewers will spend the next couple of weeks trying to deduce whose voice that is, and it’s a tantalizing way for the preview to end.
Vince Gilligan confirmed that at least 10 characters from Breaking Bad would appear in the film, including Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger Mayew (Matt Jones).
