'Breaking Bad' Movie to Air on Netflix and AMC

Vince Gilligan’s ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Headed To Netflix & AMC

Inside sources are reporting that the feature film continuation of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad will drop first on Netflix before heading to AMC, the network that aired all five seasons of the iconic series. Sources also told The Hollywood Reporter that Netflix will show the flick before it airs on AMC.

And now for a little Breaking news. But I imagine the most popular way is on Netflix, where five seasons of the two-time Emmy victor for Outstanding Drama Series are available to be viewed at any time. By 2013, the series was earning its highest viewership numbers yet.

This would be an interesting reversal of the way that the series first aired, with each season dropping episodes weekly in a standard broadcast TV model before heading to Netflix for the world's binging pleasure roughly a year after the conclusion of each season. Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two.

The deal is the latest example of Netflix's attempts to shake up release patterns and distribution models in both film and television. The series originally premiered on AMC in 2008 before becoming available later on the streaming service.

Why Manchester United lost to PSG - Eric Bailly
From what we have just seen in the first leg, it is extremely hard to make a case for United turning the tie around in Paris on 6 March.

Back in November, Bryan Cranston (who played Walter White on the show) confirmed that a movie is in fact in the works on the Dan Patrick Show.

The Breaking Badiverse (look at us, just making up words cause we feel like it here at ScreenCrush) already has one prequel: The ongoing AMC series Better Call Saul starring Bob Odenkirk in the years before his character transformed into the character he became on Breaking Bad.

Whether or not Cranston himself will appear in the film is unclear. But then again, Walter White was known for showing up when he was least expected.

"It's a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale]", Cranston said.
