Walking Dead Special Edition & Season Two Trailer

Let’s jump right into it with the extended The Walking Dead Season Two trailer. Nearly 5 minutes of awesome.

Walking Dead Season Two Trailer:

From that trailer the story looks to be both deviating widely from the source material (again) but then also reconnecting with it as well as Rick carries a boy to the farm that was a crucial part of The Walking Dead story early on in the books/graphic novels. Season Two is still in production, so the above The Walking Dead Season Two trailer is most likely from footage shot early to about mid-way through. If they can retain even half of the pace and suspense from the trailer that should quell the complaints that some viewers had about the show “being slow”.

The Walking Dead Special EditionWalking Dead Special Edition Bluray

For those of you who haven’t picked up The Walking Dead Season One on DVD or Blu-ray yet, or if you did and were looking for more content then the meager initial release supplied, you’re in luck. Coinciding with the release of the trailers and information on the upcoming second seas on (premiere October 16th, 2011) special and limited edition DVDs and Blu-ray have been announced. The Walking Dead Season One Special Edition Bluray and DVD sets are each 3 discs and contain new features not found in the original release. The new features are:

  • Adapting the Dead
  • Audio Commentaries on all episodes w/ Frank Darabont, Greg Nictero, Andrew Lincon and additional cast and crew.
  • Black and White Version of The Pilot Episode
  • Bring out the Dead : KNB & the Art of Making Zombies
  • Digital Decay : VFX of The Walking Dead
  • Killer Conversations : Frank Darabont & Greg Nicotero
  • No More Room in Hell: The Walking Dead Phenomenon
  • We are The Walking Dead
  • New Packaging (See Cover Above)
  • MSRP of $59.99The Walking Dead Limited Edition Tin

The Limited Edition Blu-ray of The Walking Dead (pictured at the right and exclusive to Best Buy) has an MSRP of $89.99 and includes all of the new extras listed above.  What, you ask, do I receive for the extra $30. Packaging comes in the form of The Walking Dead Limited Edition Blu-ray Collector’s Tin which includes a (wearable I hear) zombie mask designed by VFX guru Greg Nicotero itself.  The prices seem a little steep for what was a six episode season, but true fans of the series will be grabbing these up quickly.  As an added bonus the first 100,000 units sold (either version) get a The Walking Dead trading card from Cryptozoic
