WATCH: The full length trailer for the Breaking Bad movie is about as good as trailers get

el camino official trailer

Six years since the show ended, and we pick up right where we left off…

It was barely a few hours ago that Netflix dropped the latest teaser for the feature-length return of Jesse Pinkman, but today they have given us our first official trailer for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, and it is tough to think of how a trailer could get any better than this.

While it does seem like there isn’t going to be any easy “in” for non-fans of the show, it does give us a fantastic feel for the vibe of the movie, which is essentially “Jesse isn’t out of the woods yet”.

Not a huge amount of plot, which writer and director Vince Gilligan is still keeping pretty close to his chest, but it will be interesting to see how he, a master of the incredibly tense slow-burn (both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul didn’t get spine-snappingly tense until a few seasons in), will convey that same sense of nails-in-the-sofa anxiety in two hours.

Not that it hugely matters, because we’re obviously going to be watching it the second it drops, regardless.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be released on Netflix on Friday 11 October.
