See the Official Release of the Comic Con Trailer for ‘The Walking Dead’; Series Premieres on Halloween
Posted on Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
AMC has officially released the same trailer for The Walking Dead that was shown this past July at Comic Con, and we’ve got it after the break.
Yep, we posted the Comic-Con trailer for the Frank Darabont-direct pilot of The Walking Dead once before, but that was a taped bootleg. (Peter got a little excited over the trailer and couldn’t help himself.) This is the real thing, thanks to THR, and consequently you can see it in much better quality. Given the work put into some of the makeup for the show, even if you saw the bootleg, definitely spend four more minutes with this encoding. It’s still not HD, but we can hope that AMC will put yet another better version up soon.
Also, THR provides a premiere date: The Walking Dead will hit AMC on October 31, Halloween, as part of the channel’s annual FearFest. The pilot runs 90 minutes.
As we’ve said before, the show is Frank Darabont’s (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) small screen adaptation of the comic series by Robert Kirkman. The AMC Television series stars Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually), Jon Bernthal (The Pacific), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), Laurie Holden (The Mist), and Emma Bell (Law & Order) and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home after a zombie apocalypse.
