When The Walking Dead returns this Sunday, it will be celebrating a momentous occasion - its 100th episode. Knb Efx Group co-founder and Walking Dead executive-producer Greg Nicotero directed the premiere episode of the eighth season and had been looking for a way to combine his love of movie posters with his love of The Walking Dead itself. During production, Nicotero told THR that it was star Andrew... Read More »

You didn’t think AMC was going to sit back and let Stranger Things have all the fun now, did you?
As the Netflix darling continues to imitate cinema’s all-time greats in anticipation of its return on October 27th, AMC (via Bloody Disgusting) has rolled out a collection of new and nostalgic posters for The Walking Dead in honor of episode number 100, “Mercy.”
Reaching said milestone is no mean feat, particularly in the cutthroat business of television, and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero believes The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode – an episode that’s also doubling as season 8’s long-anticipated premiere – is cause for celebration. It’s seemingly chock-full of Easter eggs and nods to the past, but these old-school posters go one step further to pay tribute to cinema’s greatest hits.
Included in the gallery below are homages to The Thing, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, »

The premiere episode of The Walking Dead season 8 is apparently a thank you letter to the fans.
The first episode of the new season is just around the corner, and fans are anticipating what the hit zombie show has in store for them this time around. The show isn’t quite as popular as it once was but the series’ producers want to thank those that are still with the show in season 8’s opener.
Executive producer Greg Nicotero has told Variety that the 100th episode is “a thank-you letter” for those that have stuck around since the beginning.
“There are probably two or three sequences in the first episode that I was particularly excited about doing that people will instantly recognize. It’s sort of a thank-you letter for people who have been with us all along and nodding to little things here and there. Some of them might be a little more obvious, »

The debut of the eighth season and 100th episode of The Walking Dead this weekend is set to make the jump into virtual reality for AMC. After the October 22 premiering 100th Twd episode ends, the newly launched AMC Vr app will feature an extra scene from the “Mercy” episode directed by Ep Greg Nicotero. Focusing on Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan villain, the Kevin Cornish co-directed 360-degree bonus footage is clearly a strategic magnet to pull some of the blockbuster's… »
At last, it was finally announced the other week at New York Comic-Con that The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead would be crossing over in the near future. As revealed by creator Robert Kirkman, we learned that a certain character from one show would travel over to the other. Thanks to the Fear season 3 finale, fans now think that they’ve worked out who this is – Michael Cudlitz’s Abraham Ford. You can read about all the evidence for that here, in case you missed it.
Following the eruption of that rumour, ComicBook.com were able to chat to The Walking Dead‘s exec producer Greg Nicotero and pressed him for his thoughts on the matter. While he didn’t give anything away, he did make it clear that he applauds the fans for coming up with such a “super smart” idea for the crossover.
“I love the Abraham theory. »

Four days out from the show’s return, there’s currently a palpable swell of goodwill twisting and turning around The Walking Dead season 8.
Hailed as a return to form for AMC’s undead juggernaut, which admittedly fell on hard times during the sluggish seventh season, everyone involved in The Walking Dead‘s latest instalment have assured viewers that season 8 is a breathless, unrelenting thrill ride, as the communities of the Hilltop, the Kingdom, and the Alexandria Safe-Zone come together to take down Negan once and for all.
Doing so won’t be easy, of course, given that he’s flanked by the demented Saviors, but there’s strength in numbers, and that’s something Andrew Lincoln addressed while speaking to Entertainment Weekly. Not only that, but the series mainstay also reflected on the difficult season 7.
It was a hard season last season, I think, for everybody. I think for »

With only a few days standing between now and The Walking Dead‘s season 8 premiere – October 22nd is the date for your diaries – the show’s impassioned fanbase is currently itching for another instalment in the Rick Grimes saga.
Kicking things off with the super-sized “Mercy,” the season 8 opener is said to be The Walking Dead‘s “most ambitious” episode yet, which is rather fitting given that it’ll write its name in the history books as episode number 100. Reaching such a milestone is cause for celebration, though while speaking to Variety, executive producer and director Greg Nicotero stressed that “Mercy” is a heartfelt thank you to the show’s community.
Echoing his own comments about nostalgia and nods to the past, Nicotero told viewers to be on the lookout for “two or three sequences” in Sunday’s premiere.
There are probably two or three sequences in the first episode »

Tired of paying The Saviors with their resources, energy, and ultimately their lives, Rick Grimes and the Alexandrians have joined forces with The Kingdom and the Hilltop to face off against Negan and his followers in what will be an "All Out War" in season 8 of AMC's The Walking Dead. As dangerous as the humans will be in the new season, the walkers are still an ever-present threat, and we have plenty of new looks at both the living and the living dead in our extensive photo gallery from The Walking Dead Season 8 premiere episode.
Featuring Rick Grimes, Carl, Carol, Maggie, Daryl Dixon, Father Gabriel, and gruesomely gorgeous walker makeup effects by Greg Nicotero and his Knb Efx Group, the new season 8 premiere episode photo gallery can be viewed below.

If there’s one member of The Walking Dead crew who will be longing for revenge in season 8, it’s Daryl Dixon.
Still reeling from the show’s seventh season, in which Norman Reedus’ fan-favorite was subjected to a brutal spell of torture at the hands of Negan and his sinister Saviors, Daryl will soon be caught amongst the “all-out war” between Negan and the show’s three primary factions: the Alexandria Safe-Zone, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom.
Despite their differences, those three armies have joined forces in the name of a common enemy, and all involved in The Walking Dead season 8 have assured viewers that this year’s instalment will be one to remember. It’ll also make history thanks to the premiere of “Mercy,” which will have the honor of marking the show’s 100th episode this coming weekend.
And though AMC has focused on the bigger picture »

A legend in the film and television industry for his pioneering work in visual effects, not to mention his status as an executive producer and director on the AMC zombie series since the very earliest days, Nicotero remembers what it was like to be a young kid with an overwhelming passion for the movies he loved — a passion he couldn't express as easily as fans can express themselves today.
"I always talk about the fact »

Having a job that involves you pretending to kill zombies all day sounds like a dream come true, so it’s nice to see that Danai Gurira, aka The Walking Dead‘s Michonne enjoys doing her job just as much as we enjoy watching her.
In fact, we got a glimpse into her enthusiasm in this recent interview, where the actress was asked what her favorite walker kill was. She immediately singles out season 4, episode 9, “After.” In this outing, Michonne comes to a kind of epiphany about her purpose in life – namely, carving up walkers with a machete.
Originally, she was going to understand this by slaughtering just 10 of them (which was all the show had budgeted for for the scene). But when she got into the moment she just… kept going. She steamed past 10, then 12, then 16, until she was surrounded by the twitching corpses of 24 walkers.
“I really enjoy »

The Walking Dead promos just keep coming, and if you haven’t yet had your fill of season 8’s relentless marketing spiel, AMC has today rustled up two new promos and an insightful new featurette designed to take you behind the scenes of the oncoming war.
Because on October 22nd, the communities of Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom will take up arms against Negan and his sinister Saviors. It’s a full-blown conflict that has the potential to be unmissable television (our review), and if you still feel burned by the fairly underwhelming seventh season, rest assured, all involved have made a conscious effort to deliver on those lofty expectations.
Not only will The Walking Dead season 8 bring a sense of closure to the spat between Rick and Negan, but there have also been rumblings of a potential romantic subplot between Carol and Ezekiel – played once again by Melissa McBride and Khary Payton, »

Seven years and 99 episodes later and the stakes have never felt higher on The Walking Dead, which is an achievement in and of itself given how most majors TV shows tend to coast along on recycled ideas and shoddy storytelling in their twilight years.
Nicotero, who has been tasked with directing season 8’s super-sized opener, “Mercy,” admitted that everyone involved made a conscious effort to up their game in anticipation for The Walking Dead‘s latest instalment, which is likely a reaction to season 7’s lukewarm reception. With the exception of April’s finale and that bloody premiere, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” not an awful lot happened during the show’s seventh season. However that may be, »

The Walking Dead celebrates its 100th episode with style in the season 8 premiere. Here are our Us chums' spoiler-free thoughts!
This is a spoiler-free review of the season 8 premiere.
It's not often that a TV drama series gets to celebrate its 100th episode, especially when the show in question has lost some momentum in the past few years. Fortunately, The Walking Dead doesn't lose sight of this major milestone and of its past mistakes in its stylish season eight premiere, which feels like a return to form. It's intense, action-packed, and heart-warming in all of the right places. Most importantly, it puts Rick Grimes back in the captain's chair where he will hopefully stay.
It's no secret that »
A little over a year after his tragic and untimely death, Anton Yelchin has been memorialized with a full-size statue at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The statue, which is now open for public viewing, was unveiled over the weekend, with friends, family and Hollywood figures who knew him turning up to pay their respects. Zoe Saldana, who starred alongside Yelchin in the Star Trek movies, spoke at the ceremony. Here's what she had to say.
"It is a bittersweet moment, because we're here for Anton, and he's not here with us. But, it alleviates my heart knowing that we'll keep him alive. We're going to keep remembering him in the hopes that by practicing all the things he believed in and remembering all the love that he gave us, and all the joy he gave us, we're able to just keep him here with us."
It was a day to celebrate the too-short life of Anton Yelchin. Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Lawrence, J.J. Abrams, Simon Pegg, Demi Moore, Rumer Willis and more famous faces joined Yelchin's mother, famed Russian figure skater Irina Yelchin, and others at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles to honor the actor, who died in June 2016 at the age of 27 after being pinned by his own car outside his home in Studio City, Calif. The memorial included readings, remarks by friends and family, as well as the unveiling of a statue made in the actor's likeness, which was created by sculptor Nick Marra and FX artist Greg Nicotero. The statue is located in the Garden of Legends at the cemetery, near »
Anton Yelchin was commemorated by his family and costars Sunday in a touching and heartfelt celebration of life at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.
The actor, who died at the age of 27 in June 2016 after he was pinned by his own car at his Studio City, California, home, left an unforgettable impression on those who worked with him, such as Zoë Saldana, who starred alongside him in Star Trek.
“It is a bitter sweet moment, because we’re here for Anton, and he’s not here with us,” she said. “But, it alleviates my heart knowing that we’ll keep him alive. »

“The world is ours with everything we’ve beaten, everything we’ve become,” Rick says in this new preview for season 8 of The Walking Dead. “No matter what comes next, we’ve already won!” But what comes next ain’t gonna be pretty, reads the caption that accompanies the video on the show’s official Instagram account.
It’s a tantalizing tease of the all-out war that’s about to go down between the various communities (Alexandria, the Kingdom and the folks residing on the Hilltop) and Negan and his Saviors. Set to kick off later this month with the season 8 premiere, we’ve been assured that “Mercy,” will ring in the show’s 100th episode in style. Championed as an “explosive” start to what’s been described as a suitably breathless instalment of AMC’s undead flagship, showrunner Scott Gimple has consistently assured viewers that both he and The Walking Dead »
