No, it will probably tie in to Better Call Saul though.
Nothing special. Just a day of hype, then continuing my Breaking Bad S5 rewatch before the movie hits. Ozymandias is up next. After that, there's just being there at exactly midnight to watch the film.
I'd love that, but sadly, it doesn't seem like something that's in the cards right now. Vince said on Rich Eisen recently that he figures it's about time to move on from the Breaking Bad universe (don't have the exact time stamp, but here's the interview):
I watched that interview and I agree with Vince there. As much as I like Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, and I'm sure that I'm gonna like El Camino, getting something new from Vince as opposed to another tv show/movie in the BB universe is much more exciting and interesting to me.
I'm inclined to agree on that, but a part of me also yearns for another series set in the same universe, with a different cast, but the same tone, same storytelling techniques... only because I know it'd be yet another piece of phenomenal television. Albuquerque / New Mexico itself has become such a character between the two shows. I don't grow tired of seeing those desert scenes.I watched that interview and I agree with Vince there.

I disagree for both.
This isn’t life tho, it’s story-telling. I don’t think Vince would return to this character just to hurt him even more than he already has. Jesse was a literal slave to literal nazis for god’s sake lol. I think giving him a bad ending after all that he’s gone through would be hard to make narratively satisfying.
I mean, none of us really have any idea. There are several sequences in BCS that are "flash-forwards" to what Saul is up to Post-BB, and with each season thus far, those are indicating they're leading to some sort of conflict. My best guess is that a part of this movie might intersect with that part of BCS's storyline.So if I haven't seen any of BCS should I go in to this expecting to miss anything outside of winks and nods? (Yes I know I need to watch it)
Also on an unrelated note the whole time I was playing Control I wondered who Dr. Darling's actor reminded me of. Now I realize it's Vince Gilligan.
