We got our first glimpse at images from Joe Carnahan’s newest film Stretch just about a week ago, but the movie’s social media campaign has been going bonkers since then.  There have been plenty of alt-posters, behind-the-scenes images revealing cameos and guest stars, and lots of general blanket insanity.  Now, the first clips from the film are making their way online, and boy are they delightfully strange.  They’re short, but efficient in their weirdness and humor, plus you get your first look at star Patrick Wilson and co-stars Chris Pine, Norman Reedus, and Ed Helms.  It’s a great introduction to what’s sure to be a balls-to-the-wall crazy film.

THE BOONDOCK SAINTS 3: LEGION Will Be Made if Troy Duffy Gets His Way

by     Posted 50 days ago

Let’s hope that Troy Duffy keeps taking his time with his signature franchise since I could easily go the rest of my life without another Boondock Saints film.  I almost get the appeal of these movies in the sense that they position themselves as very much outside the PC Hollywood POV, but I think they’re garbage and I don’t think their misogynist immature hearts are in the right place at all.  But we could… could… be getting another one if Duffy has his way.

The title that he’s kicking around is The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, which apparently focusses on the McManus boys behind bars along with a cult of obtuse people outside the prison walls who take on their crime fighting mantle.  It’s also promised that the film will look at the origins of the McManii, showing us their “very first crime.”  We’ll see if he can get both Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus back this time seeing as the latter has blown up quite a bit since the last film came out in 2009.  Hit the jump for more on The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.

THE WALKING DEAD Season 5 Teaser Trailers and Images Highlight Monsters Both Living and Dead

Halloween is just around the corner, which means a new season of The Walking Dead is upon us.  While the show has gone through a number of creative changes behind the scenes, it appears that current showrunner Scott M. Gimple is poised to eclipse original showrunner Frank Darabont’s length of time in that position (assuming he makes it through Season 5 unscathed), as Gimple has held the role since he took over at the beginning of Season 4.  With a new batch of episodes on the horizon, AMC has unveiled a couple of The Walking Dead Season 5 teaser trailers as well as some high-resolution images to tide fans over until the show returns.  I bailed on the series midway through Season 3, but it remains one of the highest rated dramas across all networks and TWD fandom is as intense as ever, so I imagine these new teasers and images will be of interest to many.

Take a look at the new The Walking Dead teaser trailers and images after the jump.  The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on AMC October 12th.

Guillermo del Toro and THE WALKING DEAD’s Norman Reedus Involved in New SILENT HILL Game

by     Posted 70 days ago

Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) will be involved, in some capacity, in the new Silent Hill game.  I know that’s vague in regard to their roles on the project, but that’s all that has been announced thus far.  From the below video we can assume that Reedus will voice a character in the game (as well as give license to his visage), but I’m foggier on Del Toro’s involvement since his title card just has his name.  Did he write it?  Is he a producer of some kind?  No idea.  Also from the title cards, we can make an educated guess that the name of the game is Silent Hills. Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is working on it as well.

That’s about all of the info we have, and most of it has been gleamed from a Silent Hills teaser video that sprung from what had been advertised as a demo for another game.  Since the announcement was made in an interactive manner, the following video contains some commentary from the woman playing it.  You may want to lower the volume on the speakers.  Hit the jump for the Silent Hills teaser.

Hall H welcomed the cast and producers of The Walking Dead as they made their appearance at Comic-Con this morning to talk about the new season and interact with fans.  By now, everyone has probably already seen the trailer they also unveiled for Season 5.  It was a nice treat for fans and also helped answer some lingering questions.  Of course, one question always leads to five more when it comes to AMC’s hit drama.  So, the cast and creative team sat down with us following their panel for roundtable interviews.  While they tried to keep most details hushed, they did provide us with a pretty good outlook of what to expect when the series returns in October.  Hit the jump for highlights from the interviews with Robert Kirkman, Norman Reedus, Greg Nicotero, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Andrew Lincoln, and Chandler Riggs.

THE WALKING DEAD Season 5 Trailer and Comic-Con Panel Recap: Cast and Producers Tease “Spectacular Scope”

by     Posted 89 days ago

comic-con-walking-dead-slice

With Breaking Bad over and the second half of Mad Men’s final season poised to wrap up next spring, AMC has struggled a bit to find original programming to match its early successes.  That said, one new show hit really, really, really big.  Entering its fifth season this fall, The Walking Dead is not only a ratings juggernaut on cable television, it also gives network favorites like The Big Bang Theory a run for their money in terms of viewership.  Despite a sort of revolving door of showrunners and behind-the-scenes skirmishes, the ratings have continued to grow and its commercial popularity remains higher than ever.  With a spinoff series in the works as well, The Walking Dead franchise is likely to keep AMC afloat for quite some time.

As they do every year, much of The Walking Dead cast (yes, even Norman Reedus) and executive producers Scott M. GimpleRobert KirkmanGale Anne HurdDave Alpert, and Greg Nicotero made the journey to Comic-Con earlier this Friday to preview the upcoming season and reveal the first trailer.  Watch the first The Walking Dead season 5 trailer after the jump, along with my full Comic-Con panel recap. The series returns on Sunday, October 12th on AMC.

THE WALKING DEAD Recap: “Us”

by     Posted 213 days ago

the-walking-dead-season-4-recap-slice

Last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead was pretty grim, so it was no surprise that the show lightened the tone considerably for season four’s penultimate hour.  That’s not to say everything was all sunshine and kittens.  Even a relatively pleasant and optimistic episode of The Walking Dead is expected to have Walker attacks, gruesome effects, and plot twists culled from the darkest side of the human condition.  In the case of “Us”, the positive vibes stem from the cooperative teamwork of strangers and the reunion of lost loves.  Hit the jump for my recap, and to learn why these groovy feelings aren’t likely to continue at the end of the line.

THE WALKING DEAD Recap: “Alone”

For those of you who have been waiting for more friendly animals to appear on AMC’s The Walking Dead, I give you tonight’s episode, “Alone”.  While the presence of the furry, four-legged friend had little to do with the entire episode, its apparently solitary existence did speak to the episode’s theme established in its title.  We got to check in on a few of the survivors in their various new partnerships; some grew stronger together and were torn apart, while others went their separate ways only to find out that it’s better (and safer) to stick together.  Hit the jump for my recap and review.

THE WALKING DEAD Recap: “Still”

Forget the Oscars, AMC’s The Walking Dead is on!  While I wasn’t surprised to see the ratings juggernaut unwilling to flinch from its scheduled run against the 86th Annual Academy Awards, I was surprised by the episode itself.  And not pleasantly so.  I’m all for pairing characters off to more evenly portion out screen time and let their individual stories develop.  This tactic can be rewarding when those stories enrich the overall plot arc and draw viewers more deeply into the narrative; however, the inherent risks bubble to the surface when the on-screen characters lack chemistry or when their stories fall flat.  Tonight’s episode, “Still”, was unfortunately an example of the latter.  Hit the jump for my recap and review.

One of the most popular shows on all of television returns this fall with the fourth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and fans are eager to see where the series picks up following some pretty bleak events towards the end of last season. We’ve seen a few teaser images of season four previously, but little has been revealed about where the story might go in the new episodes. However, during today’s The Walking Dead panel in Hall H, we got a much better idea of what to expect from the show’s producers and cast, and we also got a look at an extended trailer for season four. The cast discussed how frequently people die on the show, where we find Rick, The Governor, Glen, and more in the new season, how last season’s events have impacted the group, and more.

Additionally, it was revealed that season four of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on October 13th. Hit the jump to read my full recap of the Comic-Con panel and to see the newly-released trailer.
