Where was El Camino filmed? Filming Locations of the 2019 Breaking Bad Movie in Albuquerque

Where was El Camino filmed
Posted by
The sequel movie of one of the best series of all time, named after the Chevrolet El Camino, is focusing on Jesse Pinkiman’s post-Breaking Bad life. Directed by the TV show's creator Vince Gilligan, the new film is starring Aaron Paul reprising his rol as Jesse. Jesse is the former meth cook who was the partner in crime with Walter -Heisenberg- White, portrayed by Bryan Cranston.

As the series, El Camino was filmed in Albuquerque, but also in Arizona and Wyoming. The production was shooting in secrecy under the title 'Greenbrier', to avoid being detected by the legion of fans that still come to the city to spot the filming locations where Breaking Bad was filmed.

El Camino Desert
One of the most interesting locations of the film is the stunning landscape where Jesse and Todd go to bury the housekeeper's body, shot in Arizona's Painted Desert.

El Camino drehort
Jesse didn't get far for his 250k: The Alaska scenes in a parking lot were shot at the Sandia Crest Scenic Highway in Cedar Crest, very close from Albuquerque. The landscape from the aerial view (image pictured), is from the Togwotee Pass with the Teton Range (Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming). Also according to the movie's credits, El Camino was filmed at Albuquerque Studios.

  4. I don't think the scene with Jesse and Todd is in Arizona. It's 550 in New Mexico between Cuba and Bernalillo.
