It’s been 6 years since we’d last heard of Jesse Pinkman. But in a few weeks, we’ll get to see what he’s been up to in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
The new Netflix Original feature film has appeared out of the blue, much to the delight of many fans. This new trailer debuted at the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, which sees Aaron Paul reprise his role as the fan-favourite, Jesse Pinkman, who appears to be on the run after a massacre in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
We’re not exactly sure what had happened leading up to the mass shooting as described in this trailer, but we have a hunch that it’s got to do with Pinkman’s dark past as the understudy to the late Walter White, and would-be heir to his “blue crystal” meth empire back in the original TV series.
Breaking Bad made waves across pop culture and beyond during its five-season run between 2008 and 2013, clinching a wealth of awards across all seasons, including 16 Primetime Emmy Awards. Paul himself won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor thrice for his role as Jesse Pinkman. Since then, Paul has gone on to make a name for himself, landing gigs in Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, as well as the latest season of Westworld.
After the events of Breaking Bad, a prequel spinoff show, Better Call Saul, released in 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk as the titular Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill, alongside series veteran Jonathan Banks (Batman: Arkham Knight).
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will launch exclusively on Netflix on October 11.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
