The next chapter of the Breaking Bad franchise has officially arrived. During Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards, Netflix unveiled the first full trailer for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the cinematic continuation of the original series. This comes after a tease from star Aaron Paul late last week that the trailer would be arriving soon.
El Camino will follow the escapades of Paul's Jesse Pinkman, following the events of the show's 2013 series finale. While the film's events are still largely under wraps, it was recently confirmed that Charles Baker and Matt Jones will be returning as Skinny Pete and Badger Mayew, and more than ten characters of the show are expected to appear.
"I'm hoping when the movie comes out, people won't say, 'Oh, man, this guy should've left well enough alone,'" series creator Vince Gilligan recently told THR. "Why did George Foreman keep coming out of retirement, you know?"
"I didn't really tell anybody about it, because I wasn't sure I would ever do anything with it," Gilligan added. "But I started thinking to myself, 'What happened to Jesse?' You see him driving away. And to my mind, he went off to a happy ending. But as the years progressed, I thought, 'What did that ending — let's just call it an ending, neither happy, nor sad — what did it look like?'"
