The Walking Dead (TV)
« on: October 19, 2010, 10:32:10 AM »
The Walking Dead is an upcoming American television series created for television by Frank Darabont and based upon the comic book series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore.
 It will premiere on the AMC network on October 31, 2010 with a 90-minute premiere episode, during the network's "Fearfest."

The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows a small group of survivors traveling across the United States  in search of a new home away from the hordes of zombies. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group's desperation to survive pushes them to do almost anything to stay alive.<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yg46DWI_fCE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yg46DWI_fCE</a>

This show has been mentioned numerous times on here in the past few months, it looks awesome, it's on FX in the UK a few days after it airs in the States apparantly.    :)

I'm super excited for this.  It will no doubt be my favorite new series in TV.
A lot has already been discussed in the general Movies/TV topic, so I'll just cary over Craig's important quotes.

Is This Zombie TV Show Tipping Its Hat To Dead Rising?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBiI6YRfWIY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBiI6YRfWIY</a>

At Comic-Con, a trailer was shown for the upcoming TV adaptation of the brilliant comic series The Walking Dead. Nearly every scene shown is lifted directly from the comics. Except for one, though it still looks familiar.

You'll see it come at around 4:10 into the clip. It's from early in the comic series, when hero Rick travels to Atlanta looking for his wife and son. In the comic, you see a tank in the background on one page, but Rick never clambers up on top of it running from the undead.

He does in this trailer. That's new for the show. And the imagery looks a lot like the most iconic shot from 2006's Dead Rising, from the game's conclusion as Frank finds himself...on top of a tank surrounded the by undead. It's not only the same scenario, it's the same vehicle, an M1 Abrams.

It's nice to see that for a game that took so many cues from other works of zombie fiction, Dead Rising seems to have had its own influence on the genre.

Can't wait either, I got chills down my spine watching that trailer. The guy in the lead looks exactly like Andrew Lincoln, a British actor who is most famous for his role in the British comedy Teachers from a few years back. Does anyone know if it's actually him, cos if it isn't then it must be his twin!

It is Andrew Lincoln, i'd say he's most famous for playing Egg in This Life but that's because Teachers was sh*t!   :)
