‘El Camino: a Breaking Bad movie’ is coming to Netflix this Friday, will you watch it?

El Camino, the continuation of Jesse Pinkman’s story on Breaking Bad, premieres on Netflix this Friday, October 11th. I’m really excited for that. Hopefully I can convince my kid to watch it with me instead of on his own. I’m not one of those people who remembers plot details from series and my son definitely is so I want him to explain things I’ve forgotten from Breaking Bad. There’s speculation that Walter White is possibly still alive, but creator Vince Gilligan shut that door in a recent interview, saying he’s definitely dead. Other details about the plot, including which characters are appearing, have been kept under wraps. Lead Aaron Paul told Entertainment Tonight that he didn’t even tell most people he was working on the sequel and instead told them he was working on an indie in New Mexico. I love Jesse enough to watch the movie for him, plus it’s on Netflix it’s not like I have to pay for it and sit there for two hours.


Here are some photos from the premiere in LA last night! Bryan Cranston came of course, as did other key cast members including Dean Norris (Hank), Betsy Brandt (Marie), Jonathan Banks (Mike) and Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring). Krysten Ritter even showed up and she just had a baby two months ago and was only a guest character. (Her character’s death was devastating! I can still picture that scene.) Noticeably absent were Bob Odenkirk (Saul) and Anna Gunn (Skyler). Seriously where was Anna? She’s not on social media, but Bob Odenkirk is on Twitter (he’s more awesome than I expected) however he hasn’t tweeted in over a week. Nobody knows if Skyler and Saul are going to be in it and I have a conspiracy theory that some of the actors stayed away to throw viewers off. Here’s a link to a deep dive into the characters along with fan theories about who may appear. I wish I wrote this when my kid was home so I could quiz him about it.

Here’s Betsy Brandt looking lovely in a black strapless dress with a flowy skirt and sleek gold belt. She should be wearing purple! Come on.


Krysten Ritter in a black Georges Chakra gown with a tulle skirt. This is kind of fussy but she just had a baby and gets a pass.


Rhea Seehorn in a silky ivory jumpsuit with one split sleeve. She looks so much like June Diane Raphael from Grace and Frankie.

Kirsten Dunst and her fiance, Jesse Plemons (Meth Damon). She’s in Brock Collection. I like the top but fabrics that get crinkled-looking like that bother me.

Michelle Monaghan’s outfit and styling are so dippy here. I think her stylist and hair and makeup people did her dirty. I like her a lot though. She’s not in Breaking Bad and I am not sure why she was there.


Here’s Sophia Bush in a weird pleated asymmetric gown with detached sleeves and spaghetti straps. I’m not sure why she was there either. She’s an awesome person and I appreciate her activism.

Dean Norris. I would.

    I can’t wait even though I can’t remember where everyone ended up!

  2. Arizona says:

    I started watching Breaking Bad again because we haven’t watched it since it ended. We’re about halfway through season two, so obviously won’t finish it in time for the movie, but I read up to refresh my memory. I will definitely be watching it! Probably Sunday, so I can watch with my husband, because he’s away this weekend.

  3. What. . now? says:

    No. Probably not. I was satisfied with how Breaking Bad ended.

  4. EM says:

    I definitely need a ten minute “Previously on Breaking Bad…” It’s been awhile!

  5. morningjacket says:

    I would have loved if Bob Odenkirk had showed up. I have such an epic crush on Bob Odenkirk. I would definitely go there. Repeatedly.

  6. Layla Beans says:

    So there. Loved BB, loved Jesse, wanna know what happens to him.

  7. Kittylouise says:

    I laughed so much at ‘Dean Norris. I would’.

    I too have an enormous crush on Bob Odenkirk.

  8. bonobochick says:

    Nope. I will be watching Season 2 of PLAN COEUR / THE HOOKUP PLAN on Netflix instead.

  9. redheadwriter says:

    Michelle Monaghan was there to support Aaron Paul. They were both in The Path.

  10. eto says:

    YES! I just finished my rewatch and I’m so ready for the movie

  11. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Maybe, because Aaron Paul is just that cute.

  12. Becks1 says:

    We just watched Breaking Bad (like the whole series, we are so behind) – I was kind of meh on the whole series, to be honest. I liked the premise but by the end I was kind of over it. I think that’s because we watched it so close together – it just seemed that there were a lot of episodes where nothing happened? Also I hated Skyler lol. I am not sure why! I really liked Marie for some bizarre reason. But I did end up liking the ending.

    So anyway -I don’t think we’ll watch it. Well, my husband probably will and I’ll read.

  13. minx says:

    Of course! Loved BB.

  14. Bc says:

    As long as Gus Fring is in it.

  15. DaisySharperThanYou says:

    I for one won’t watch. It has hateful white people in who hate latinos!!!!
