Another season, another opportunity for AMC to create a totally terrifying poster to promote its zombie hit, “The Walking Dead.”
Again, the central figure is Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the Georgia lawman who finds himself the unlikely leader of a ragtag band of survivors of a zombie-pocalypse. But where season one’s poster had him atop a horse headed into a decimated Atlanta, this year’s image telegraphs the show’s shift in focus to a rural setting.
Grimes runs along a dirt road toward a farmhouse with storm clouds lowering overhead and, we can only assume, zombies not too far behind.
Yes, we got chills.
