10 Great Movies Starring Breaking Bad Actors You Need To See

From Breaking Bad to breaking the box office...

The Infiltrator
Broad Green Pictures

Often cited as one of the greatest TV shows ever made, Breaking Bad stands tall as a landmark in the golden age of television, thanks in equal measure to the work of Vince Gilligan and his writing team, and the immeasurably talented cast working to bring Walt White's twisted story to life.

Before, during and after the show's five-season run, stars such as Bryan Cranston, Giancarlo Esposito, Anna Gunn, Mark Margolis, Krysten Ritter and Aaron Paul have all managed to maintain a successful career in the movies, even if the majority of the show's cast have stuck to TV since its conclusion.

Of course, not all of their work has been great (Aaron Paul starred in Need for Speed, after all), but as a whole the following cast members have sure had no problems securing a handful of brilliant projects throughout their illustrious careers.

From socio-political dramas to courtroom biopics, tantalising horror flicks to cult classic comedies, these 10 films are the best of the best to come from the Breaking Bad cast over the years...

10. Anna Gunn - Sully (2016)

The Infiltrator
Warner Bros. Pictures

Sully was a film destined to be made eventually, and Clint Eastwood probably gave audiences the best possible movie on the subject.

Telling the story of veteran pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), who saved over 150 airplane passengers by landing in the Hudson River after a major engine malfunction, the drama recreates the crash landing and the subsequent media storm with relentless, entertaining energy.

Hanks and co-star Aaron Eckhart steal the show, whilst Breaking Bad alum Anna Gunn - also known as Skyler White, Walt's flawed and exploited wife - turns up in a supporting role as Dr Elizabeth Davis, who helps investigate Sully's last-minute actions.

Regardless of the historical liberties taken with her character, Gunn gives a solid antagonistic performance, and is one of the many great aspects that makes Sully such a suspenseful and enthralling thriller.

I watch movies and TV shows to fill the void inside of me. It's not working, but at least I get to write about what I love. I once met Stephen Baldwin. It was weird.
