The new trailer for ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad’ movie has debuted with a hint at what happened to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman…
A new trailer for ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad’ movie debuted on Sunday night ahead of the film’s official release on Netflix on October 11 along with a short stop in select theaters.
The film picks up after the events of the ‘Breaking Bad’ finale that saw Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) escape captivity after he was held hostage and forced to cook meth for the group of Nazi’s who took over the business after Walter White was exposed as Heisenberg.
While the trailer doesn’t give many clues, the film is focused on Jesse’s journey after the events on ‘Breaking Bad’ although the short teaser only relays back to the show’s finale where Walter White (Bryan Cranston) helped to free his former assistant by gunning down the Nazi’s holding him captive. A radio report about the massacre at the Nazi compound is the only clue we receive as Jesse sits in his El Camino after escaping.
“Breaking news. A horrific scene with multiple victims. It started when neighbors reported hearing hundreds of gunshots fired. When Albuquerque police arrived, they discovered the bodies of nine male victims, many shot multiple times. Veteran police officers are calling the level of carnage ‘staggering.’ Apparently, a remote-controlled machine gun was used in the killings. Investigators are looking for a person of interest who fled the scene.”
Now the most interesting part of that radio report is the count of bodies found at the scene after Jesse fled to freedom.
According to the official body count at the end of ‘Breaking Bad’ there were nine total bodies laid out following the shooting before Jesse’s escape. Jack, the head Nazi, and his guys Kenny, Matt, Frankie, Lester, and two unnamed white supremacist gang members along with his nephew Todd, who was killed by Jesse after he was set free. The final shot of ‘Breaking Bad’ panned down on Walter White, who caught a bullet during the shooting and he laid on the ground bleeding out as authorities arrived on the scene.
Many have speculated that perhaps Walt survived and didn’t die in the finale but if the body count stated on the news report on the radio is true that means nine people died — and the ninth and final person to die in that scene was Walter White.
Of course that doesn’t mean Walt couldn’t make an appearance in the movie in some kind of flashback scene but judging by that news report, it appears ‘Breaking Bad’ is leaving the main man from the original story dead and buried — at least for now.
