The trailer opens with an interrogation scene between Skinny Pete (played by Charles Baker) and the cops. Pete tells the cops that he doesn't know where Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) is. Pete says, "I don't know what to tell you, like, I have said, like 500 times already. I have no idea where he is. Don't know where he's headed either. North, south, west, east, Mexico, the moon, I don't have a clue. But yo, even if I did, I wouldn't tell you."
El Camino will reportedly focus on what happened to Jesse Pinkman after the explosive events that viewers witnessed in the Breaking Bad TV series finale. The official description reads, "In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future."
Talking about how the film was kept under wraps, even Bob Odenkirk, who played smooth-talking lawyer Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill in the show and the star of the show's spinoff Better Call Saul, is surprised by how long it remained a secret. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he said, "Even I've heard so many different things about it, but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie. I can't wait to see it. I don't know what people know and don't know. I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret."
Well, now that the cat is out of the bag, everyone is excited. Twitter user Plathanos wrote: Breaking Bad movie confirmed and already filmed... huh...everyone is excited. @WickCTPicaro found it incredulous that it was kept under wrap so well. He added: That's wild. How do you film a whole movie, especially Breaking Bad, with nobody leaking it? Hope it's good. While others like Nico Haeflinger were not really impressed by the idea considering that he believed the show had a "perfect ending."

He wrote on Twitter: Breaking Bad was, beginning to end, the best television show ever made. It had a perfect ending. Why would they make a movie? The makers are also doing a fine job of not revealing the plot of the movie and it seems to be a well-guarded secret for now. According to a Vice, there are only a few things that are known so far about the movie like the star of the show, Aaron Paul, once again reprises his role as Jesse Pinkman. The plot will start off from where the season ended with be Pinkman's "quest for freedom" after escaping the Aryan Brotherhood in the finale.
