AMC kept the tradition alive, giving Comic Con attendees the first look at the trailer for the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. The season eight trailer played following a touching tribute to The Walking Dead stuntman John Bernecker and highlighted the upcoming showdown between Rick’s people and Negan’s. The five-minute video isn’t short on action, but it also shows how the impending battle is impacting the survivors emotionally.
