So for some reason WordPress doesn’t like to embed Flash movies on my page. Maybe I just need to get a real account or uncheck a box or something, who knows. But here’s the link to watch this footage on M-tv’s site. Cause ya when I think Zombies, I think M-tv… wtf!
This looks very interesting. Action, some yucks, and the undead! What more could you ask for, wait it’s based off a comic. Whats that you say!? Well pure awesomeness is correct.
There have been a few photos and a poster from the Frank Darabont shoot and Andrew Lincoln in character as Rick Grimes, but this is the first time we have seen the full cast together for the first season of AMC’s The Walking Dead – The adaption of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comic.
From left to right we have a zombie, possibly Emma Bell as Amy , Jon Bernthal as Shane Walsh, Steven Yuen as Glenn, Sarah Wayne Callies as Lori Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Jeffrey DeMunn as Dale and Laurie Holden as Andrea.
The photo looks great and matches the style of the comic book. Everyone looks spot on, but I still have a niggling doubt about Lincoln as the lead. Doesn’t look quite right, but will wait to see him in action.
So that last couple of nights have been dreaming of snowboarding for some odd reason. So I wanted to do a vintage doodle type of thing with all the things I like about snowboarding. Some have to do with my yearly trip to Purgatory, CO., others just pure randomness. But, I plan on doing three of these, all very similar to one another. Plus, it helps me use my Wacom tablet more and more.
So if any of you were wondering what to pick up for my bday. THIS! And form of this would be the best present, ok pretty close to a years membership to Craft Beer of the Month Club (thx family!) but awesome none the less. Here’s the OG post from Unreality.com The link is to Topless Robot, a great Nerd Blog.
It’s the greatest weapon possibly ever conceived, the RPC, or Rocket Propelled Chainsaw. Yes, it is EXACTLY what it sounds like, and provided you have an unlimited amount of chainsaws, you’ll be the zombie killing champion of the post-apocalyptic world.
I’m frankly surprised such a device hasn’t shown up in a game or a movie yet, but there’s still hope for Dead Rising 3, which literally attaches chainsaws to everything you could possibly imagine. I’m pretty sure the protagonist of that game will literally have chainsaws for arms, legs and a head, with a secret compartment in his chest…for another chainsaw.
A few days ago I posted on Quint’s day on the set of AMC’s upcoming series The Walking Dead. This was a two part post and he is back with the rest of the day and some more photos. After reading this, I have very high hopes for The Walking Dead. It seems that the people making this are very into it. And the writer has a lot of influence over what happens with the story. Nothing I hate worse then a great book, or comic and someone decides that they know better then the author. Normally if it was popular enough to become a movie/tv series then the book/comic had something going. Don’t fuck up a good thing!!
Sorry had to vent there a little. And now the link to rest of the story. Here!
Bracken over at The Horror Geek posted this some time ago. I haven’t kept up with the blog as much as I would have liked. So here is some more stuff to fill your zombie needs!
Sorry for the long delay between posts — I’ve been doing a lot of stuff over at Horror Squad (and if you’re not checking me out there, you should be — it’s extra content) and I’ve not had a bunch of free time. I’m back today though, with more Walking Dead goodness.
Pictured above is the first production photo from AMC’s new series — based on Robert Kirkman’s comic set after the zombie apocalypse. Greg Nicotero of the mighty KNB Effects did the zombie design and it looks amazing. Director Frank Darabont concurs, saying “Greg Nicotero is absolutely out-doing himself. The work he is doing is beyond what one could hope for. Our Zombies kick ass!”
The series is set to debut on AMC later this year.
Good old Mike Bracken made a post earlier today about AMC’s behind the scenes look of “The Walking Dead”. Due to come out this October, they are filming now in Atlanta, GA. Check out Mike’s post here at The Horror Geek.
A director that’s always wanted to do Zombies, and pays homage to Romero. So far this thing can’t go wrong. But like all things that are really awesome in one medium can’t always be expressed in another. So with fingers crossed among other things, I can’t hardly wait til October to get here to see. But enough talk, check out the video Here!!
