Netflix Unveils Teaser Trailer For Breaking Bad Movie El Camino

What happened to Jesse Pinkman?

That's the question Netflix's Breaking Bad movie El Camino seeks to answer. 

No, your eyes don't deceive you and we're not playing cruel tricks on you: there is a Breaking Bad film, it's called El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, and Netflix just dropped the first teaser trailer for it. 

The footage features a character television fans haven't seen in years: Skinny Pete, as played by Charles Baker, who is brought into a police station for questioning. He details that he doesn't know where Jesse Pinkman, famously portrayed by Emmy-winning actor Aaron Paul, went after escaping from captivity and a life of making high-quality crystal meth during Breaking Bad's final season. Skinny Pete insists that he has no information to give law enforcement officers, and even if he did, there's no way that he would cooperate in their mission to "put Jesse Pinkman back inside a cage."

This clip may be short, but it's quite telling of what's in store in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. The film will follow Jesse as he comes to grips with his past life (of drug-using and drug-making, lying and cheating, and getting caught in the crosshairs of one too many greed-fueled fights with warring drug lords) in attempts to secure himself a better future — or a future of any kind. (The title alone teases that Jesse will have to walk a dangerous path to find peace: "el camino" means "the road" in English.) Additionally, the footage of course confirms that Skinny Pete will play a part in the narrative, which suggests that some other Breaking Bad favorites might join the fray as well. Don't count on Bryan Cranston's iconic Walter White coming back, though, as he died in the final moments of the series.

The best part of this trailer drop is that it confirms what Breaking Bad alum Bob Odenkirk, who played Saul Goodman on the acclaimed AMC series and went on to star on his own show Better Call Saul, teased to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month: "I find it hard to believe you don't know [the Breaking Bad movie] 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." 

Plus, the El Camino trailer should ease the frustration of fans who were annoyed at Cranston and Paul for stringing them along with teases of what could have been the Breaking Bad movie, only to announce that the "collaboration" they were hyping up was their new mezcal brand.

Written and directed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be available to stream on Netflix on October 11.
