Earlier today at the San Diego Comic Con, the first trailer for Frank Darabont’s television adaptation of The Walking Dead was show with alot of applause. A crappy camera phone recording of the trailer is up on Youtube, but I’ll refrain from posting the video until a higher quality version becomes available officially soon.
It was also announced at the panel that Bear McCreary, who composed the music for Battlestar Galactica, will be the composer on The Walking Dead.
I’ll just let that sink in for a moment. Bear’s work on Battlestar Galactica was magnificent and resulted in one of my favorite soundtracks of all time so I can’t wait to hear what he does for The Walking Dead. There was a disturbing lack of gore in the trailer as Comic Con is supposed to be ‘family-friendly’ so it was edited and cleaned up so that it could be shown at the convention. Sigh of relief.
