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.
