Update: The embeddable version of the fan-made Breaking Bad: The Movie has been pulled; it appears to work at the official website still. On the original Vimeo page, the creators had included in their description:

Original story: Breaking Bad concluded its five-season run in September 2013, and we we wouldn't be surprised if today's heroic, crazed video-editing wizards used every minute since then to transform the 62 episodes into this two-hour fan-made film.

Yes, Breaking Bad: The Movie now exists. Watch it above. We're counting the seconds till we can sit down with the full finished product, but we love the idea and the opening's fantastically executed.

The Vimeo description explains:

"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. 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. An alternative Breaking Bad, to be viewed with fresh eyes." 

For a recent bullet point in Breaking Bad–abilia, watch Bryan Cranston inhabit his Heisenberg character to read the lyrics of Little Mix's "Shout-Out to My Ex."
