Watch El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Online
In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse Pinkman must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (or simply El Camino) is a 2019 American neo-Western crime thriller film that serves as an epilogue to the television series Breaking Bad. Series creator Vince Gilligan wrote, directed, and produced the film, while Aaron Paul reprised his role as Jesse Pinkman. The plot follows what happens to Pinkman following the events of the series finale. Several actors, including Jesse Plemons, Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Banks, Charles Baker, Matt Jones, and Bryan Cranston, reprise their original roles from the series. El Camino was also the final film to feature Robert Forster, who died on the day of its release.
A Breaking Bad feature film was rumored ever since the series’ finale in September 2013. Gilligan approached Paul with the idea in 2017, near the tenth anniversary of Breaking Bad, and filming began in secret in New Mexico and Arizona in November 2018, lasting nearly 50 days. The project remained unconfirmed until August 2019, when Netflix released a trailer.
El Camino was released digitally on Netflix and limited theatrically on October 11, 2019, with a television broadcast on a later date on AMC. It received positive reviews from critics, who praised Paul’s performance and Gilligan’s direction, and noted the film as closure for fans of the series.
