Breaking Bad, the well scripted TV series which held viewers awe-bound between 2008 – 2013 is back, but this time as a movie on Netflix.
Fans have been eager and anxious to know the events that took place after the series ended at the scene where the body of Walter White (the protagonist) laid motionless on the floor of a meth lab, bleeding from gunshot wounds. The screen turns black…series over!
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie was shot almost completely in secrecy at Albuquerque in 2018 marking its 10th year anniversary. Fans and Journalists’ attention was diverted from the production as they were made to believe it was a different movie titled Greenbrier.
The upcoming film sequel will take off where the season finale “Felina” ended showing the dramatic escape of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from captivity after being held as a prisoner for months, being forced to cook Meth by his captors (a group of white supremacists). Jesse was last seen in the series speeding in a Chevrolet El Camino, hence the title of the upcoming movie.
The award winning Breaking Bad films was written and produced by Vince Gilligan, whose first attempt it is filming a feature movie (non series). Jesse is also excited replaying the role that got him three Emmy awards. “It’s a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn’t realize that I wanted…and now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there.”
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie debuts on Netflix 3am (New York time) on Friday, October 11. In addition, the film will also have a limited theatre release between October 11–13 in 68 various cities in the United States. Its running time is 122 minutes.
