AMC's 'The Walking Dead' Trailer (Frank Darabont, Gale Anne Hurd)
"The Walking Dead" revolves around an epidemic of apocalyptic proportions that has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.
This looks fantastic. It's hard to go wrong with Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd behind this, and it's great to see Sarah Wayne Callies ('Prison Break') and Lennie James ('Jericho') again.
The 90-minute premiere will air this Halloween, which is appropriate. I can't wait.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
