The Walking Dead Season 6 Full Trailer


During Comic-Con in San Diego last week, AMC debuted one of its most action-packed trailers yet for “The Walking Dead” Season 6. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple admitted: “We sometimes play with the truth in trailers.” So, even though the trailer seems very promising, especially for real fans of the show, it might not be all in the actually show itself. We will see! Check the trailer below!

Fear the Walking Dead Trailer


AMC has offered up a glimpse of why we should all fear The Walking Dead prequel Fear the Walking Dead. This 30-second clip showcases series co-star Frank Dillane racing away from an unseen threat, which we all know to be a brain-hungry zombie.

But, in the world of the series, Dillane’s character, Nick, may not be entirely aware of what’s going on. That’s partly because he’s a college dropout with a bad drug habit, but also due to the fact that the series begins in the early days of the zombie apocalypse (a stretch of time during which Walking Dead hero Rick Grimes was in a coma), when the general public hasn’t yet awakened to the fact that civilization as they knew it was ending.

That’s a collapse that Fear the Walking Dead, which takes place in Los Angeles, will follow as the episodes progress, though creator Robert Kirkman also says the new series will eventually jump forward in time to line up with the chronology of its zombie mothership. Along with Dillane, the cast includes Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis as an affianced couple, and Ruben Blades and Mercedes Mason as a father and daughter.

Fear the Walking Dead premieres in August on AMC.

The Walking Dead Monopoly Set

AMC finally gets a gift we already knew was coming – an official Walking Dead Monopoly set. After seeing all of the prototype boards over the years, Hasbro has finally decided to release an officially licensed version. While the rules are pretty much the same in this zombie version of the popular game we all know and love, players will now play for resources that will save your life, as oppose to making you rich in the standard version. There are six different collectible tokens to choose from including Michonne’s katana, Rick’s Hat, RV, Lucille (bat), a bucket of body parts, and a telephone symbolizing Rick’s meltdown during season 3 of the show.

Breaking Bad Characters as Chemical Diagrams

In anticipation of the return of AMC’s Breaking Bad for the second half of its final season, Shutterstock analytically assembled “chemical diagrams” to represent significant characters from the show. The graphic series that the blog calls Bad Chemistry: The Character Elements of Breaking Bad features nine of the show’s most prominent characters, from high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook Walter White and his former student-turned-sidekick Jesse Pinkman to fast food chain owner and drug kingpin Gus Fring. The clever minds behind the diagrams have used the show’s thematic design choice of abbreviating words like chemical elements found in the periodic table to concoct their own skeletal models of each person’s chemical makeup. Like a bunch of Heisenbergs, each chart the blog produced is a unique “Blue Sky” that reflects character virtues and flaws, accompanied by a quote and a few significant icons.

For true fans of the show, every minute “element” in each diagram is sure to spark a memory of that character’s narrative and personal journey. While some visual symbols like the scales of justice seem an obvious fit for Saul Goodman (solely because he’s technically a lawyer), the fly in Walter’s structural formula is a nod to a notable episode titled Fly, which symbolizes the loss of control in Walter’s life as his cancer is in remission yet he continues to cook meth. The flower in his frame is also a reminder of the poisonous “Lily of the Valley” plant that reflects one of the many shifts in Walter’s moral compass.
