AMC has released the poster for Frank Darabont’s The Walking Dead, adapted from the comic series of the same name. The Walking Dead poster is a bleak image indeed, featuring protagonist Andrew Lincoln apparently going the wrong way. As bad an idea as it may seem, Lincoln is on a mission to reunite with his family – and yes, he’s that kind of hero.
The Walking Dead is known as a transcendent bit of story-telling, an effective and familiar zombie apocalypse story AND an intense and challenging character driven epic. George Romero would be proud.
AMC released today the key art for its upcoming original drama “The Walking Dead,” which premieres Halloween night, October 31 at 10pm.
Executive produced and written by three-time Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont, ‘The Walking Dead’tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse.
The series stars Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually), Jon Bernthal (‘The Pacific’), Sarah Wayne Callies (‘Prison Break’), Laurie Holden (The Mist), Jeffrey DeMunn (The Green Mile), Steven Yeun (‘The Big Bang Theory’) and Emma Bell (The Bedford Diaries) as a group of survivors traveling in search of a safe and secure home.
