The Walking Dead Season 8 "100 Episodes" SDCC '17 Poster seen online; R.I.P George A. Romero

Set to premiere this fall and preparing fans for announcements and teasers to come this weekend with the San Diego Comic-Con, AMC's The Walking Dead has been spotted putting up a new banner poster for the eighth season that promotes "100 Episodes" of the series that have come and gone, with a collage featuring all the events and characters in the series that includes Rick Grimes, his fellow survivors, and their enemies. This comes courtesy of Twitter user Simon's Jacket, and it certainly looks like a true testament to the show - which airs its 100th Episode with the Season Premiere.

Also a special shout out of respect goes out to none other than George A. Romero  - the "Father of Zombie Films" whose works like Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead inspired The Walking Dead and what we know as the modern zombie today. His zombies have appeared in TWD as homages by his proteges like Greg Nicotero, and we will never see another filmmaker as passionate and innovative as him. May this master and horror icon rest in peace.

Throwback Thursday: Screen Junkies releases "The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Honest Trailer"

More than three years after the film hit theaters and didn't really meet expectations for fans and critics alike, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 pretty much signaled the end of the Andrew Garfield era of Spider-Man Movies - but it is still appreciated by some for delivering one of the most iconic versions of the Spidey costume in live-action. The overstuffed plot and villains however didn't give the film much breathing room, and is one of the contributing factors to Sony Pictures starting from scratch and making a deal with Marvel Studios to bring the webhead to Marvel Cinematic Universe - which finally happened in last year's Captain America: Civil War and continues with this month's "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

Honest Trailers - The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Now Screen Junkies is revisiting the "sins past" as it were, with a new "Honest Trailer" video on Marc Webb's ASM 2. Seeing it is just believing and laughing at some pretty bad and awful moments of what is a "premature reboot" of the Spidey franchise in film.
