Listen up, Walter White fans: “Breaking Bad” is coming back, and the official trailer for the upcoming film teases it will be filled with just as much drama, crime, and heart-pounding moments as the hit AMC drama it’s based upon.
“El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” which will stream on Netflix and be available in some theaters on October 11, takes place where the series finale left off in 2013. The trailer shows Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) on the run from the law after Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) rescued him from white supremacists who had been holding him hostage and forcing him to make meth.
A news story in the brief trailer shows Pinkman’s face with the text “suspect wanted.” Another clip, released by Netflix on Saturday, shows Old Joe, one of the show’s recurring characters.
Watch the trailer, below:
The original show, which lasted five seasons, began on a brighter note. White started out as a soft-spoken family man and high school chemistry teacher who, after being diagnosed with lung cancer, decided to team up with his former student Pinkman to make and sell methamphetamine to get money for his family before he dies. In the end, though, White ends up enjoying his descent into the criminal underworld and takes on the new persona Heisenberg.
The upcoming film was apparently shot in secret; Bob Odenkirk, who played criminal lawyer Saul Goodman in the original series and who has his own spin-off series “Better Call Saul,” told Radio Times in August that the filmmakers have “done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
“El Camino” will play in 68 movie theaters, which include ones in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Albuquerque (where both the movie and the series were filmed), starting on Oct. 11, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie, which is two hours long, will also stream on Netflix beginning the same date, before going back home to AMC.
