'Better Call Saul' trailer highlights trash can abuse

'Better Call Saul' trailer shows Bob Odenkirk's lawyer character taking out his frustrations

"Better Call Saul" is coming in February, and AMC has finally released a trailer that shows more of the series than just a tantalizing morsel. 

The "Breaking Bad" prequel will show how a struggling small-time lawyer named Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) became the slightly more successful strip-mall-based operator Saul Goodman, who defended criminal types in all manner of shady dealings.

In this look at the show's opening episodes, we still see Saul as Jimmy learning how he's just not fitting into the world of respectable law. And he's taking those frustrations out on a poor trash can.

In "Breaking Bad," Walter White acted out his rage on a box of pizza, which landed on his garage roof in an iconic scene. It looks like McGill/Goodman's rage vessel will be a poor metal trash can, which gets kicked into a shadow of itself in this trailer.

The series, from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan and writer Peter Gould, will feature familiar faces from the previous AMC series, including Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), as well as new characters, like McGill's brother, Chuck, played by Michael McKean.

The series will premiere in a special two-night premiere on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9.
