What time will the Breaking Bad movie release on Netflix? Featuring the return of Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie has been written and directed by series creator Vince Gilligan, and marks the first onscreen appearance of Jesse since the Breaking Bad series finale aired six years ago.
Jesse was last seen speeding away after being freed by Walter White, but don't expect things to have worked out too well for him since then. El Camino picks up shortly after the Breaking Bad finale, and based on the trailers, Jesse is going to quite quickly run into trouble once more. He'll have some familiar faces along for the ride, with his old pals Skinny Pete and Badger (Charles Baker and Matt Jones) confirmed to return, with as many as 10 Breaking Bad characters set to appear in El Camino.
The Breaking Bad movie is getting a limited theatrical release, but it'll still be available on Netflix from October 11. As with all Netflix Originals, the Breaking Bad movie will release on Netflix at midnight PST/3 am EST/8 am BST. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie's runtime is listed as being 122 minutes, so fans will soon find out what the ultimate fate of Jesse is.
The Breaking Bad movie has, as you might expect from Gilligan, been largely shrouded in secrecy. It was only a couple of months ago that Paul even started promoting the film, after a long time where those involved refused to say too much about the Breaking Bad movie's existence, never mind its plot. It's expected that we'll see a Jesse haunted by the ghosts of Breaking Bad's past. It's widely believed that Bryan Cranston's Walter White will return in some capacity, while Jonathan Banks' Mike is supposedly back too. It's as much about him trying to outrun, or at least come to grips with, his past as much as it is pushing forward into a new future.
At the end of Breaking Bad, Jesse had been through a long period of physical and psychological torment, and he still has the scars (figurative and literal) from that in El Camino. On top of that, he fled a crime scene and is going to be the only suspect and witness to a major crime scene that involved numerous people being killed. That will ensure this is a dark return to Jesse's life, but hopefully the Breaking Bad movie can still find a way of giving Jesse Pinkman the happy ending he so thoroughly deserves.
