When you're constantly fighting for your life battling zombies in the zombie apocalypse, "beauty" and "art" are definitely the furthest things from your mind.
But The Walking Dead is ditching its usual blood, sweat and gore (seriously, how bad must each character smell by now?!) in the latest teaser trailer for AMC's hit series in favor for a beautiful, artsy video that we just can't get enough of.
"Surviving," Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) says ominously at the start of the video. "Surviving together is all that matters."
The minute long video then finds the Grimes gang in full battle mode, making their way through a foggy woods, slicing, slashing and shooting at zombies off screen.
The gang's all here, from Rick to Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) to Michonne (Danai Gurira) to Glenn (Steven Yeun) to Carol (Melissa McBride) and more, and each of them get a really cool slow-mo close-up, putting their rage at the undead on full display. It's eerie, it's powerful, and seriously...it's freakin' beautiful.
We've never been able to describe anything on The Walking Dead as beautiful before, and it's throwing us off guard!
"It's all that matters," Rick says again at the end of the trailer.
So what does this teaser trailer mean for the Grimes gang? Are they going to lose even more people when the show returns?
Watch the video above now, and find out when The Walking Dead returns Sunday, Feb. 8 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
There are a couple of things that stood out to me in this teaser trailer. First, Ricks terribly fake looking beard! Second, where is Carl? Third, who exactly are they shooting at?
All I know is that this was a great trailer and EOnline nailed its description as to how it was both beatiful and artsy! How do you make a Zombie Apocolypse trailer both beautiful and artsy you may ask? Set the scene with a bit of fog then have your main characters, that everyone has grown attached to for the past 4 plus seasons, walk through it. Not just walk but lets have them shoot at the fog. Now while they are walking and shooting at air put it in slow-mo. From there play some classy music and have Rick say "Surviving, surviving together is all that matters." Cut & Print!
We are now less than a month away from the mid season premiere and growing more impatient by the day. It can't get here soon enough!
What did you guys think of the teaser?
