Saturday March 23rd attendees to the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) were treated to an advance screening of AMC’s Into the Badlands. The show returns from a break with a special episode at 10pm est on Sunday the 24th before another new episode airs on the 25th during the show’s normal Monday night time slot. In addition to the screening there was a panel and a press conference as AMC went all in for Into the Badlands at C2E2.
The episode that was aired laid the ground work for the final run of episodes before the show’s dramatic conclusion later this year. It featured fights among many major characters as everyone chooses a side in the upcoming battle for the fate of the world. The fights were beautifully shot and choreographed, featuring a wide range of techniques and styles in further proof that it is a travesty that the show has never won an Emmy for stunt work.
If you can’t wait for the new episodes or you just want to hear what star Danny Wu and executive producers, showrunners and writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have to say about the show you’re in luck. I was able to attend the press conference at C2E2 and have the audio here for you.
