We’ve already seen a teaser, the Emmys commercial and the trailer, and now Netflix has brought online another commercial for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie in which Old Joe (Larry Hankin) takes the call for help. Old Joe is the owner for a junkyard who helped out Walter White and Jesse Pinkman several times in the series.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will launch on the streaming service on Friday, October 11, 2019. The Netflix Television Event reunites fans with Jesse Pinkman (Emmy winner Aaron Paul). In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity (in the El Camino from the title), Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future. In case you missed it, you can still catch up on Jesse Pinkman’s journey here as well.
This gripping thriller is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad. The movie is produced by Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Aaron Paul, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
Breaking Bad starred Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul and ran from 2008-2013 on AMC. The series follows protagonist Walter White (Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family’s financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world.
Breaking Bad spawned the spinoff Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk, which has a fifth season coming in 2020.
