Breaking from tradition, Netflix’s much-anticipated feature length film based upon the acclaimed “Breaking Bad” series is debuting in select theaters Oct. 11 – 13.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will also stream on Netflix Oct. 11, in addition to airing later on AMC Networks, which broadcast the original Emmy-winning series from 2008 to 2013.
While the theatrical offering is part of Netflix’s desire to satisfy industry awards rules, it will likely not appease exhibitors’ mandate for an exclusive 90-day release window.
The movie revolves around the series’ meth-making Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) character dealing with the aftermath of his infamous partnership with terminally ill chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston).
Cranston’s White character remains an integral component of the movie.
“Jesse must come to terms with his past … in order to forge some kind of future,” reads a promo tagline.
“Breaking Bad” celebrated its 10th anniversary last year.
