Atlanta's "The Walking Dead" gets trailer, debut date

debut date

AMC had debuted a stupendous trailer to "The Walking Dead," which airs its first, six-episode season beginning - when else? - on Halloween, Oct. 31. The trailer runs a full four and a half minutes, which reveal that director Frank Darabont presents an extremely faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel. The early scenes are straight from the book, while seeming to offer visual distinction from Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later and other films that present similar scenarios. For Atlantans, the fun part is that the ATL is all over the preview. I think our city should change its slogan to "Military protection, shelter, food... Atlanta seems like a good deal." There's even the ironic/operatic use of a vintage pop song.
