San Diego Comic Con 2017 day 2 has come to a close, with trailers for the The Walking Dead Season 8, Preacher, Game of Thrones and more! Check it all out right here and more with my top reveals of SDCC 2017 day 2!
“Day 2 of SDCC 2017 belongs to AMC with their action-packed and shocking new trailers for their Walking Dead franchise. As cool as those were though, Preacher and actor Pip Torrens stole the show — see how directly below this. Please note that even though this list is ranked from best to least – these are all still my fav. moments from today. I omitted the shit I didn’t care for.”
Herr Starr Takes Over Preacher in New Trailer
“I’ve been waiting, patiently, sorta, for Herr Starr to arrive on Preacher season 2 and this new Comic-Con trailer is loaded with the villain. Pip Torrens is playing him perfectly — in this dry, creepy, disturbing manner that is both completely psychotic and hilarious. Read THIS for my most anticipated Herr Starr comic moments that I want to see on the show.”
From AMC and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) comes the TV adaptation of Garth Ennis’ and Steve Dillon’s iconic DC: Vertigo comic series Preacher. The pilot episode was written and directed by executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Starring Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens and Ian Colletti. Season 2 debuted Sunday June 25, 2017.
The Walking Dead Season 8 Trailer Teases Big Time Jump from Comics
“I actually don’t like this trailer that much overall. The ticking noise gimmick goes on WAAAAAAY too long and it felt like I was watching a preview for a grindhouse movie made in the 80’s. I don’t know who the hell edited it, but they did a shit job. So why is this my second fav. reveal of the day? Because of the ending, which absolutely shocked me. I honestly thought the Walking Dead TV series would conclude at the ‘All Out War’ finale, but it looks like season 8 will adapt all of that battle-filled comic arc and make the big time jump, leading fans into the Whisperers story… I’m stunned, but I’m kind of on board with this because I really enjoyed The Whisperers stuff, even more than Rick’s war against Negan.
The Walking Dead is an AMC television adaptation from showrunner Scott Gimple pulled from the pages of the hit Image comic series by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Khary Paton, Lauren Cohan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chandler Riggs and Melissa McBride. Season eight will debut October 22, 2017.
Fear The Walking Dead Trailer Teases Mayhem When Season 3 Returns in September
“This latest season of Fear The Walking Dead has been superior than the series this show spins off of… No bullshit. Main characters die shockingly and it doesn’t have to happen in a finale either, plus the action, brutality and writing has been stellar. If you gave up on Fear TWD, you need to rethink your choices and come back. You won’t regret it.”
From AMC and showrunner Dave Erickson comes The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirman’s companion series Fear The Walking Dead. Starring Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Mercedes Mason, and Colman Domingo, season 3 returns September 10, 2017.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Comic-con Trailer Teases Remaining Episodes
“We’re only one episode into the shortest season of Game of Thrones yet and I wouldn’t blame HBO if they didn’t reveal anything else at this point, but that new comic-con trailer was fantastic. Are we finally going to see Jon meet the Mother of Dragons and try to take on the white walkers with DRAGON FIRE?!?! Oh my god yes please.”
Game of Thrones is an adaptation of the epic dark fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire from writer George R.R. Martin and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The series airs exclusively on HBO and stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke. Season 7 debuted July 16, 2017.
Shelob Revealed for Middle-earth: Shadow of War
“So you all remember Shelob — the giant spider from Lord of The Rings: Return of The King? She’s back and she’s scarier than ever in this latest trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War… Every bit of new footage revealed for this sequel is better than the last and with Shelob joining the game, you can officially add this to my most anticipated title of the Fall.”
Shelob – you know her name, but what of her intentions? Can you trust the Spider? Play Middle-earth: Shadow of War, available beginning October 10, 2017 on Xbox One, Xbox One X, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro.
