Fans were given a chance to rewatch their favorite characters in a two-hour Breaking Bad movie. However, it did not last long.
Two of the most avid fans of the AMC hit drama offered a Breaking Bad movie online for those who would like to see the show once again but don’t have time to watch the entire series. French filmmakers Lucas Stoll and Gaylor Morestin brought back to life the story of the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who turned into a crystal meth manufacturer.
Stoll and Morestin posted their “study project” on Vimeo. The two claimed they spent two years to finish the movie. The description of Breaking Bad movie states:
“After two years of sleepless nights of endless editing, we bring you the answer to that very question. A study project that became an all-consuming passion.”
The two filmmakers chose some of the fan-favorite scenes of the show. They stitched it together to make a shorter version that fans could finish in a couple of hours. Stoll and Morestin also wrote in the description:
“It’s not a fan-film, hitting the highlights of show in a home-made homage, but rather a re-imagining of the underlying concept itself, lending itself to full feature-length treatment.”
However, the video did not last long online.
Breaking Bad Movie Taken Down
Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the movie as a result of a third-party notification by Sony Pictures Television Inc. A notice at Vimeo stated that the video was removed on Monday based on Sony’s claims that the material used in the video has infringed on their copyright.
The video was also shared on YouTube but was also taken down. But before it was removed, several fans have watched it.
CNET noted that film version kicks off on Walter White (Bryan Cranston) starting his own family. It then quickly turned past to his sense of ineffectiveness in teaching and his lung cancer diagnosis. Then it progresses to Walter turning into a meth dealer with the help of his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
Fans who failed to catch the fan-made Breaking Bad movie can still watch the entire five seasons. Fans just have to spare at least two days for it. If not, they can instead catch the Breaking Bad prequel.
Better Call Saul season 3 is set to premiere on April 10. It features some of the most notable characters in Breaking Bad including Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) and Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut). Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring) is also set to appear in the third season of Better Call Saul.
