Here's Our First Look at Jesse in Netflix's El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
The host-less Emmy Awards kicked things off with Bryan Cranston on stage tonight, which now seems like a piece of shrewd marketing, since the biggest news on TV that isn't the awards show tonight is the new trailer for the Netflix Breaking Bad movie, El Camino, which premiered on Fox tonight.
This is our first look at Aaron Paul, returning as Jesse Pinkman for the first time since 2013. The movie looks to pick up almost immediately after Breaking Bad's series finale in which [spoiler alert] Walter White kills a bunch of Nazis and releases Jesse from captivity.
I've been against the idea of following up on arguably the best TV shows of the decade, but Better Call Saul has proven the world of Breaking Bad has legs, and as long as El Camino focuses on the inimitable Aaron Paul and the exploration of trauma instead of descending into fan service, I'm now sold on the idea behind this.
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.
Cranston himself will likely not be returning in any major capacity. But, c'mon guys, it's Bryan Cranston. He'll show up in a dream sequence or something.
Watch El Camino on Netflix next month.
