PROMO WATCH: Breaking Bad

9 Sep

I’ve just caught up with the news that the brilliant AMC drama Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, won’t be returning until June 2011. This is a delay of about three months, with the actually fair enough reasoning that writer and creator Vince Gilligan wants more time in the writing room to make sure the show is as good as it’s been in the past.

On that note, a retrospective of the creative genius of the show was in order to tide me over until the summer of 2011.

Breaking Bad’s promo team work tremendously hard coming up with a large array of promotional art for the show, and you’ll notice that many of the photographs are taken straight from the show (and not taken seperately) – demonstrating how superb the cinemotography for each episode (even Season 3’s episode ‘Fly’, set in one dingy room, was a feast for the eyeballs).

Anyway, here are some of my favourite shots from the last three seasons (and one cheeky unofficial one that I think is well done too):

I do love the minimilist posters that seem to exist for each revered TV show and movie…

And last-but-not-least, my favourite Breaking Bad promo ever (the main promotional ad for season three)…

I cannot wait to see what season four entails, get writing Gilligan and co!
