The Walking Dead movie with Rick Grimes will be shown in actual theaters – CNET

Rick Grimes will return to The Walking Dead, but in a spinoff movie headed to theaters.


Zombie slayer Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) will return to The Walking Dead, but in a movie that will debut in theaters instead of AMC's TV network.

Fans were shown a new teaser trailer for The Walking Dead movie at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday during The Walking Dead panel.

The short teaser trailer shows the helicopter that carried an almost-dead Grimes flying off to an unknown destination where there are very tall buildings. The teaser simply states, "Rick Grimes Returns: Only in theaters."

The official AMC Twitter account confirmed that the untitled Walking Dead movie will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Additional cast information and a release date has yet to be revealed.

AMC didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

News of The Walking Dead movie starring Lincoln as Grimes was first mentioned at last year's San Diego Comic-Con panel, which also revealed more TV shows and movies were to come in the franchise's 10-year plan.

The Walking Dead season 10 trailer was also revealed during the SDCC panel on Friday.
