The 30-second clip shows a helicopter heading toward an ominous skyline and reveals that the film will be shown in theaters only. Produced by creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment and distributed by Universal Pictures, no official release date has been set yet. “For many years, fans have talked about things in the apocalypse they want to see and now we have an opportunity to explore those stories, beginning with the character who started it all, Rick Grimes,” shared David Madden, president of original programming for AMC.
TWD also premiered the trailer for its 10th season, airing on Sunday, October 6. The new season welcomes Thora Birch and Kevin Carroll to the cast, while Danai Gurira who plays Michonne shared during the panel that she would be exiting the series after this season.
