Breaking Bad (Netflix)
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 Pinkman and the events which immediately follow the series finale. Several actors involved in the television series reprise their roles, including Bryan Cranston, Jonathan Banks, Jesse Plemons, Krysten Ritter, Charles Baker, Matt Jones, and Robert Forster. El Camino was also Forster's final film appearance, as he died on the day of its release.
Gilligan first began considering the story of El Camino during the filming of the final season of Breaking Bad. 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 an AMC television premiere on February 16, 2020. It received positive reviews from critics, who praised Paul's performance and Gilligan's direction. The film was nominated for several awards, winning Best Movie Made for Television at the Critics' Choice Television Awards and Motion Picture Made for Television at the Satellite Awards.
