El Camino details

Last November, we exclusively told you that Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad movie would feature the return of Aaron Paul and be about what happens to Jesse Pinkman after the series finale. Since then, Gilligan has done a masterful job of keeping the plot details vague and not giving anything away, but a new report has some El Camino details, including that it’s a “closed-ended story” and that it features more than 10 characters from Breaking Bad.

Plus: Netflix is giving the movie a limited theatrical release, and you can find out if it’ll play in a city near you below.

Things are going to get even more emotionally devastating on Better Call Saul season 5. The Breaking Bad prequel has been slowly ratcheting up the tension, with each season bringing more and more shocking moments as Jimmy McGill transforms into Saul Goodman.

the terror infamy trailer

One of the best shows on television last year, bar none, was AMC’s The Terror. The first season adapted the Dan Simmons novel of the same name, telling the complete story of a doomed Arctic expedition aboard the HMS Terror and HMS Erebus. It was based on Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition, a real historical incident. The ship’s names really were synonyms for “fear” and “hell,” and in their search for the Northwest Passage, they really did disappear with 129 men aboard.

You don’t have to be a J-horror lover to be excited about The Terror: Infamy (read our review here… but it certainly helps. This second season of The Terror is reinventing the show as an anthology series that serves up period drama with a horror twist. If you were so inclined, you could even go into it without having watched the first season (but why would you do that when the first season was so bracingly good?) What’s clear from the trailers and promos is that The Terror: Infamy will be drawing from both the real history of Japanese internment camps in the U.S. and the genre of kaidan (ghost tales) in Japanese literature.

How well do you really know your Japanese ghosts? Can you tell a ghost from a shapeshifter? How well do you really know your World War II history? Below, we’ll debrief the intrepid viewer on the supernatural folklore, Japanese cultural traditions, and real-life wartime events behind The Terror: Infamy. Consider this your field guide for the, ahem, terror that awaits viewers in the weeks to come.
