"The Walking Dead" doesn't shamble onto television sets until October, but the flesh-hungry horde of undead walkers are feasting upon Comic-Con attendees as we speak. Not literally, of course, though the post-apocalyptic zombie horror series does have a huge presence at this year's show. But if you're not in San Diego right now and your mouth is watering for brains, we're happy to bring the "Walking Dead" Comic-Con goodness to you.
AMC has supplied us with this exclusive image from the second season of "The Walking Dead," showcasing Rick Grimes and his fellow zombie apocalypse survivors trekking through the blistering forested heat of Atlanta. He's not alone, thankfully: Daryl Dixon is leading the pack with his trusty crossbow in hand, while friendly faces Andrea, Carol, Glenn and Rick's wife Lori hang in the background.
The first "Walking Dead" season two teaser gave us nearly a full minute of brain-exploding action, and with Comic-Con kicking off in San Diego in just a couple of days, it's time to rev up the anti-zombie campaign even further.
To that end, we've got two new pieces of "Walking Dead" media for you to feast on today. Up first is the brand new Comic-Con poster for season two, which shows Rick Grimes and his not-so-merry band of survivors positioned on top of their battered Winnebago, surrounded by a pack of flesh-hungry roamers.
It's a cool enough poster on its own, but the inclusion of Norman Reedus as part of the main cast implies that big things are ahead for everybody's favorite Dixon brother — that can't be anything but a good time (for us at least, potentially very bad for Daryl himself).
If, like us, you were glued to the tube watching CM Punk’s epic win over John Cena last night at WWE’s Money in the Bank, missing "Breaking Bad," you missed out on more than just Walt and Jesse’s increasingly bleak and violent antics. During the fourth season premiere of the acclaimed AMC show, the network also showed off a teaser for the upcoming second season of "The Walking Dead."
Based on the wildly popular Image comic book by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, "The Walking Dead" is set in the wake of a zombie apocalypse, focusing on the struggles of a group of determined human survivors. If you don’t know at least that much and you’re reading Splash Page, you’re probably the only one.
Check out the teaser past the jump to get an early glimpse of all the tense zombie-killing action!
AMC has been crafty with their unveiling of any teasers or previews for the highly-anticipated second season of "Walking Dead." I say crafty, in that I appreciate the less-is-more approach to marketing. I don't want to know EVERYTHING about a favorite show before it airs! Some of you might call that frustrating.
Anyway! Good news today, in that AMC has announced they'll be airing a sneak peek of the show during the premiere of "Breaking Bad" on Sunday, July 17.
What will be featured in said video has naturally not been disclosed. I predict we'll see some zombies. Gross, smelly, weird-sound-making ones.
Although we won't see new episodes of "The Walking Dead" for another few months, the cast and crew are hard at work in Atlanta, making the post-apocalyptic zombie thing happen. We've seen a little bit of their bloody handiwork already, from Robert Kirkman's behind-the-scenes video blog to the first official image from the new season. But forget what we know — what have the people involved with "Walking Dead" taken away from their latest volley with the undead?
"What we discovered is that when you suddenly find yourself a member of a very small tribe who can't wander very far, the notions of public and private change," director Gwyneth Horder-Payton, who directed the first episode of the new "Walking Dead" season, told AMC of the lessons she's learned on the set of the survival horror series.
"People have to give moments of privacy to people even though they're sitting five feet away," she elaborated. "So you have Lori and Rick who want to have a private moment, but can't walk away so they have a private moment within a group."
"The Walking Dead" doesn't shamble its rotting corpse back onto TV screens for another few months, but if you're hungry for brains, we've got something to whet your appetite… kind of, at least.
An alleged new trailer for the second season of AMC's survival horror series hit the web late yesterday evening, a slow-motion spot that showcases southern lawman Rick Grimes squaring off against an oncoming horde of the walking dead.
It's a very cool video — and you can see it after the jump — but sadly, it's also fake.
"This Walking Dead Season 2 teaser that is making the rounds online is very cool... but it's NOT a real teaser. Just letting people know," comic book creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman clarified on Twitter last night.
To get people in gear for the second season of “The Walking Dead,” creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman is giving us a tour of the film set. The season won’t start until October, but Kirkman has a few things to show us first.
In the behind-the-scenes video (which we spotted on Spinoff Online), Kirkman shows us around the "Dead" set.
“We’re back here in Atlanta, back at it, making magic happen," he says. "Although I’m not doing very much of the work — I’m walking around watching.”
The second season of "The Walking Dead" is currently filming in Atlanta, which means we only have a few more months to wait before AMC's hit series returns.
One person who's certainly going to be busy between now and the Season Two premiere is "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman, who serves as executive producer and writer on the television series, while also scripting the monthly adventures of Rick Grimes in the comic book that inspired the series.
Along with all of his responsibilities on "The Walking Dead," Kirkman is also pairing up with veteran creator (and Deadpool co-creator) Rob Liefeld for The Infinite, a new comic book series about a man who travels back in time to enlist his younger self in a battle against a supervillain. MTV News managed to slip a few questions to Kirkman about the next season of "The Walking Dead" and The Infinite. Read More...
Yesterday we found out who will play female lead Deena Pilgrim in the upcoming "Powers" television series, and today brings news of the male lead actor, too.
According to Deadline, actor Jason Patric will play Christian Walker, a homocide detective tasked with investigating crimes involving superhuman powers. His partner, Deena Pilgrim, will be played by Lucy Punch. The only other actor cast so far is Charles S. Dutton, who will play Deena and Christian's boss, Captain Cross.
This isn't the first role for Patric in a comic book movie adaptation, as he played the villain in last year's film based on "The Losers" comic book series. Read More...
