Netflix’s “El Camino” Gets Limited Edition Blu-ray Release

When El Camino dropped on Netflix last fall, it provided a lot of things: Additional closure for Jesse's character, an acting showcase for Aaron Paul and Jesse Plemons, and a chance to say goodbye to Robert Forster, who died the day the film premiered. Now that it's had a limited theatrical release and a premiere on AMC (where Breaking Bad ran for six seasons), it's finally getting a physical edition.

The Blu-ray release is loaded with special features including a behind-the-scenes documentary, deleted and extended scenes, multiple commentary tracks, and a gag reel. That last one seems like a surprising inclusion, but I'm sure the cast and crew needed some laughs while filming a movie that's intense from the jump. The picture and sound are sure to be of the high quality we've come to expect from the greater Albuquerque crime universe (which includes Better Call Saul), and that Steelbook sure looks nifty.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie arrives on home video on Tuesday, October 13.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
