Based on the glut of zombie properties hitting bookstores, TV, and in movie theaters, it would appear America still loves zombies. With Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Afterlife, we can finally see flesh eaters in 3D! (I, for one, am actually excited about this.) In RE: Afterlife, Milla Jovovich once again returns as Alice, but this time she faces new zombies and challenges as she takes on the evil Umbrella Corporation, and seeks out the last survivors of the human race. At the recent press junket for Resident Evil: Afterlife, Jovovich discussed the comfort and challenges of returning the franchise a fourth time as well as the upcoming Three Musketeers movie that she says is “not your parent’s” version. Check out the full interview after the jump.

If you’ve paid attention to the media lately, you might’ve noticed that zombies are in. Now they’re in 3D with Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Afterlife. Reprising her role as Claire Redfield from Resident Evil: Extinction, Ali Larter once again battles the undead and the evil Umbrella Corporation. At the press junket for Resident Evil: Afterlife, Larter discussed surviving the apocalypse, how your career path chooses you, and how there is absolutely no truth to the rumors of a Heroes TV movie … as far as she knows.

Last weekend, the six stars from Screen Gems’ upcoming heist film Takers sat down to talk with the media, and I was there. Takers follows a close-knit crew of thieves who plan the perfect heist, one that will leave them set for life. Of course, the cops have to chase the robbers, and the robbers aren’t even sure if they can trust each other. Stars Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy, Chris Brown, and Tip T.I. Harris all had plenty to say about planning the perfect heist, working together, and their upcoming projects including Jumper 2 and Thor! You can watch all three interviews after the jump.

New Hammer Films CEO Simon Oakes recently sat down to chat about the rebirth of classic Horror House Hammer Films with a few online sites. Oakes talked Hammer’s upcoming slate: Let Me In, the remake of critically acclaimed Let the Right One In; The Resident, with a star studded cast including Christopher Lee, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hillary Swanks; and Lady In Black based on the classic English novel of the same name. Highlights include discussing what American audiences can expect from Let Me In versus Let the Right One In, why Hammer WON’T be making films that glorify torture, and what the return of Christopher Lee to Hammer (in The Resident) means to Oakes personally. For fans of the genre who long to see it return to what it once was, Oakes offers exciting news, views, and insights into the future of Hammer. It’s a fantastic extended interview that’s definitely worth a read.

When I was in school, there were two films everyone watched. One was “Donnie Darko”, which gave us a sequel earlier this year. The other was “Boondock Saints”. Anyway, the MacManus Brothers (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus) return to the screen this Friday, and I sat down with them to talk all things Boondock. I learned that you should never accept donuts from Sean and that both Sean and Norman are very passionate about their returning to their roles as avenging angels. Watch the interview after the jump.

Who deserves to pass judgment upon the wicked? “The Boondock Saints” asked that question. Now, because fans couldn’t get enough, we finally have a sequel. Joining Connor and Murphy in this second outing are Clifton Collins Jr. as fellow vigilante Romeo, and actress Julie Benz as Special Agent Eunice Bloom. I recently interviewed Benz and Collins, Jr. Clifton was already immersed in the Saints milieu being good friends with writer/director Troy Murphy. Benz, on the other hand, was new to this world, the group, and their ten plus years of inside jokes. She also had to learn to twirl a gun. Watch the interview after the jump.

If you were debating about the debut film from director Shane Acker, I’m here to tell you it’s great. This visionary tale is worth more than a cursory glance and it’s definitely worth ten of your American dollars. Set after the Machines have rained down the apocalypse upon us, “9″ shows a different perspective, one seen from the eyes of tiny Steampunk creations.
At the “9″ junket, director Shane Acker talked about the journey his film took from Student Academy Award winning short to feature release backed by visionary producer/directors Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov. Watch the interview after the jump.

I have made no secret of my love for Cartoon Network’s fun take on the Dark Knight in Brave and the Bold. At Comic Con, I accosted, er, interviewed several people involved with season 2 including: series producer James Tucker, producer Michael Jelenic, voice director Andrea Romano, writer Stan Berkowitz, and Director Sam Liu, about what to expect when you’re expecting. I can tell you that Batman Brave and the Bold Season 2 will feature Firestorm, Captain Marvel, Omacs, and more Flashes than you can count on one hand! Oh My! More Silver Age shenanigans after the jump.

While at Comic Con, I got the chance to interview the people behind the Cartoon Network’s hit: “Batman: Brave and the Bold”. Followers of the site know I’ve been a fan of the show since it began. There will be a full interview coming soon, but for now, the news. Based on two interview snippets, one sanctioned, and the other … not so much … I was able to gleam the fact that Adam West will be voicing Batman in next season’s B & B. More after the jump:

The designers behind the new Metalocalypse Dethgame claim to know metal. Being from Green Bay Wisconsin gives them a leg up in the pit, but what convinced me was that I was drinking Pabst with the game’s designers at 11 am and playing the demo which contains “geysers of blood.” MD will be downloadable and will have about four hours of intense, barely snagged an M rating and not a 17+, ridiculously fun game play.
For those not familiar with Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, it follows the exploits of the fictional band Dethklok who engage in shenanigans that involve death and mayhem. And drug use. And pissing on more than the Alamo. In other words good clean fun. More after the jump:

This fall, Sony launches the newest addition to the popular Ratchet and Clank series: Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Those familiar with the game know that in addition to the incredible vast environments you can explore, there are also a ludicrous amount of fun and silly special weapons at your disposal. So to help promote the game, Sony held an event at Comic-Con. Here’s my report:

They had me at hello. Okay, maybe that isn’t quite right. They didn’t have me at hello, as this is a DVD release and not a Cameron Crowe film. But the sentiment is right on. I love the Transformers. And not the G2, or beast machines, or the silly animee style series. I’m talking G1 baby. Transformers the Complete First Season 25th Anniversary edition is it! I’m talking voiced by Peter Freaking Cullen, Frank Damn Welker and Chris bloody Latta! This was my favorite cartoon as a kid. And seeing a beautiful collection like this kind of makes me salivate.
