So, we’ve had Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Dawn of the Dead, and Shawn of the Dead to name a few zombie movies. Now, we’re getting a new zombie TV series called “The Walking Dead”. The premise? It’s no different than the aforementioned movies: “Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies.”
It’s based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel and executive produced by Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”). Andrew Lincoln (“Love Actually”) plays the lead actor, Rick Grimes. So far, six episodes have been filmed, but based on the trailer and the storyline, it’s hard to see how a whole season will be made out of it (before it becomes a zombie itself), considering several movies have accomplished the same thing in a matter of a couple hours.
That being said, the clip you’re about to see got rave reviews at Comic Con so who knows. The show premieres (fittingly) on October 31st, Halloween.
So, what do you think?
