We finally have a better idea of what Vince Gilligan has cooked up for his Breaking Bad follow-up, now that Netflix has released the official trailer for the Jesse Pinkman-centric film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
Aaron Paul is back as Jesse and on the lam in El Camino, which picks up "moments after the series finale of Breaking Bad ends." The AMC series concluded with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) dying on the floor of a meth lab and Jesse speeding away from the neo-Nazi compound where he was being held captive.
Now, he must wrestle with his past as he looks to his future. The moody preview, set to Reuben and the Dark's "Black Water," sees a scarred Jesse turning to delinquent friends Badger (Matt Jones) and Skinny Pete (Charles Baker), as the police circle ever closer. Watch the trailer below.
The official trailer follows a minute-long teaser that debuted during Sunday's Emmy Awards, showing Jesse in the driver's seat of the titular El Camino listening to a radio report about a grisly homicide that left nine men dead from multiple gunshot wounds. "Investigators are searching for a person of interest who fled the scene," the newscaster says.
Viewers have been clamoring for a Breaking Bad movie since the series aired its finale in 2013, but El Camino was shot in total secret and only officially confirmed in August with a brief teaser centered on Skinny Pete.
ET recently asked Cranston about how Walter White might somehow appear in the film, and he teased that he "could be [in] a flashback or a flash-forward," before disclaiming: "I'm still dead."
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will stream on Netflix on Oct. 11, and screen in select theaters during a three-day run. (The movie will make its way to AMC, where the original series aired, in 2020.)
