Dust off your hazmat suits—Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul might have just hinted that there could be a Breaking Bad reunion in the works.

According to NME, the former co-stars tweeted identical photos of “drug mules” on their respective accounts mirrored with the same caption: "Soon." Peter Gould, one of the show’s writers, even reacted with his own tweet where he proclaimed: "Looking forward to this."

These tweets, along with previous talks regarding the development of a Breaking Bad movie, have reignited fan hopes that the paths of Jesse Pinkman and Walter White might somehow cross again.

Breaking Bad remains such a significant pop culture phenomenon that the show continues to inspire fan theories to this day, despite having officially ended in 2013 (though Better Call Saul has helped to fill the void for some viewers). When The Hollywood Reporter announced in November that Vince Gilligan, the show’s creator, was developing a two-hour film adaptation, fans promptly lost their minds with excitement. Some, however, were a bit dubious as to how this cinematic extension would pan out.

Much of this divisiveness stems from the series’s finale. Walter’s supposed death in the final moments of the show begs the question of just how involved Cranston could be in the film’s production. There’s also concern that any film adaptation—whether it’s released theatrically or on TV—would ruin what was widely viewed as a perfect ending to the series.

Whatever the case, the film’s production has largely been a hush-hush affair. Both Cranston and Paul have avoided giving direct answers regarding their involvement with the project, so much so that IndieWire is wondering whether the actors' identical tweets have anything to do with a potential movie at all. Luckily, there appears to be more evidence geared toward the show’s characters reuniting; here’s hoping Blue Sky finally gets its big screen debut.

The Longest Movie Ever Made Would Take You More Than 35 Days to Watch Straight Through

A typical movie lasts between 90 minutes and two hours, and for some viewers, any film that exceeds that window is "long." But the longest film you've ever seen likely has nothing on Logistics—a record-breaking project released in Sweden in 2012. Clocking in at a total runtime of 35 days and 17 hours, Logistics is by far the longest movie ever made.

Logistics isn't your standard Hollywood epic. Conceived and directed by Swedish filmmakers Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson, it's an experimental film that lacks any conventional structure. The concept started with the question: Where do all the gadgets come from? Magnusson and Andersson attempted to answer that question by following the life cycle of a pedometer.

The story begins at a store in Stockholm, where the item is sold, then moves backwards to chronicle its journey to consumers. Logistics takes viewers on a truck, a freight train, a massive container ship, and finally to a factory in China's Bao'an district. The trip unfolds in real time, so audiences get an accurate sense of the time and distance required to deliver gadgets to the people who use them on the other side of the world.

Many people would have trouble sitting through some of the longest conventional films in history. Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996) lasts 242 minutes, and Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Cleopatra (1963) is a whopping 248 minutes long. But sitting down to watch all 857 hours of Logistics straight through is nearly physically impossible.

Fortunately, it's not the only way to enjoy this work of art. On the project's website, Logistics has been broken down into short, two-minute clips—one for each day of the journey. You can watch the abridged version of the epic experiment here.
