EL CAMINO Trailer Shows Jesse Pinkman’s Rough Life After BREAKING BAD

We’ve had a few teasers, some casting announcements, and a lot of whispers, and now Netflix has finally dropped a full-length trailer for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, sequel to the popular AMC series. The hotly anticipated film is set to follow Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman in the events after the Breaking Bad series finale, which he somehow survived. Now that he’s on the run, it appears that things aren’t exactly going easy for poor Jesse, even with his mentor-turned-enemy Walter White (Bryan Cranston) dead.

This trailer makes us sad for Jesse all over. It also hints at a few potential reveals. But are those actually hints or just clever misdirects?

That ending moment sure seems to be teasing a re-appearance of Walt, right? It’s possible that’s just a fake-out, or a vision, or a memory. We recently learned that Jonathan Banks will return for the film in the role of Mike, who also died in the final season of Breaking Bad, so it seems likely that Jesse is either going to be inundated with traumas of his past, or that we’ll be getting a series of flashbacks. Poor Jesse just can’t catch a break. We were sort of hoping El Camino would cover his happily ever after but this looks like a more realistic version of events.

Here’s the films official description straight from Netflix:

The Netflix Television Event El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie reunites fans with Jesse Pinkman (Emmy-winner Aaron Paul). In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future. This gripping thriller is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad.

In addition to Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, the film will also bring back another pair of recognizable faces (as seen in the trailer): Matt Jones as Badger and Charles Baker as Skinny Pete. Paul is also co-producing the feature along with Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, and Diane Mercer for Sony Pictures Television.

In addition to the trailer, Netflix also released a brand new poster for El Camino, which once again teases Jesse Pinkman in peril.

We are getting more and more excited to see how this whole thing turns out. Even though we’re growing increasingly worried that Jesse might not escaped the ghosts of his past completely unscathed. Would it be too much to give us a happy ending, Vince Gilligan? It’s what we, and especially Jesse, deserve after all of the gritty, horrible things we went through for five seasons. If the last sequence of El Camino isn’t Jesse Pinkman frolicking through a field of daisies holding the hand of a woman he loves, then we have no choice but to riot.

Everything will finally come together, and we can prepare our appraisals or our pitchforks, when El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie arrives on Netflix on October 11.
