walking dead ride

You can say a lot of things about the still hugely popular The Walking Dead – it’s thrilling, disgusting, boring, repetitive, suddenly-good-after-all-these-years, and/or just-as-bad-as-ever – but you won’t find many people calling it “fun.” The series is punishing at best, putting its characters through the wringer and asking audiences to continually sympathize people who have become worse than the monsters they’re fighting.

So it may be a little weird that AMC‘s flagship series is becoming a theme park ride. Just a little.

Sally Corp, who build animatronics and attractions for museums and theme parks, has revealed The Walking Dead: Battle For Survival at this year’s International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) convention in Orlando, Florida. The “mixed media” dark ride is already fully designed. It just needs a buyer and a home.

walking dead negan casting

The Walking Dead remains one of the most frustrating shows on television. Fluctuating between genuinely thrilling genre filmmaking and insipid, wheel-spinning nonsense, no show on modern television demands that its fans grin and bear it quite like AMC’s ever-popular zombie drama. But when it’s good — and it has often been very good these past two seasons — it’s one of the most visceral gun-punches available on any medium right now. It just took more than a few years of tedium to get there.

And now, the TV series is about to embark on one of its constantly terrific comic book counterpart’s most famous and controversial storylines. The reliably great Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the Walking Dead cast as Negan, a human villain who makes David Morrissey’s Governor look downright cuddly. This character has defined the past few years of the comic book storyline for writer Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard. If handled well, Negan is going to be a big deal on the show.

Preacher trailer

Preacher has been battling to reach the screen in some form since the late ’90s, when Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s controversial, critically praised comic series was still a new kid on the block. Now, years after Kevin Smith and Sam Mendes and Mark Steven Johnson tried and failed to produce big screen and small screen versions, the infamous series is finally arriving as a show on AMC. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin are behind this incarnation. Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, and Joseph Gilgun are playing the story’s central heroes. And now, the first trailer for the series is here. Just be careful – people who associate with Preacher tend to get struck by lightning if they ever step near a church again.

Cleanse yourself with some holy water and watch the first Preacher trailer after the jump. Read More »

first preacher footage

Yes, teasers for trailers are the bane of all existence. Yes, nothing is more irritating than watching a commercial for an advertisement. And yes, realizing that the “First Look!” at a project that has many people very excited only amounts to a few seconds is deeply frustrating. So know that the first official look at footage from AMC‘s upcoming adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher is online, but also know that it’s literally about five seconds and that a proper trailer is set to arrive in just a few days.

Let’s face it, though: you’re probably going to watch this anyway. Take a deep breath, ask the deity of your choice for forgiveness, and watch the first Preacher footage after the jump.

Non-spoiler alert: things are going to get very, very bad for everyone involved.

To see just how bad, watch the Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 first look after the jump.

The Walking Dead zombie visual effects

Easily one of the coolest things about The Walking Dead, besides Daryl Dixon, is the extraordinary make-up effects used to make the zombies look that much more horrifying. The AMC series has the best make-up effects you’ll see on television, and it even rivals some work being done on the big screen, despite having a lower TV budget at its disposal.

However, when it comes to showing the continued decay of zombie bodies as time goes on, there’s only so much that make-up can do to make it look like a real body is falling apart. And that’s why we’ll see some The Walking Dead zombie visual effects being used in conjunction with the practical make-up effects. Read More »

Walking Dead special

We’ve heard over and over that the characters from The Walking Dead won’t cross over with those in spin-off/prequel show Fear the Walking Dead. But there is something happening with the timelines of the two shows, and now we have word of a new intersection between the series.

A special web series will take place during the Fear timeline — that is, in the earliest days of the walker outbreak. But it will be a little more walker-centric, as the series takes place on an airplane as walkers attack passengers. Read More »
