On AMC's The Walking Dead, Hershel's (Scott Wilson) passing represented the death of civilization. That's how showrunner Scott M. Gimple views the pivotal scene in one of the many bonus features on the show's upcoming season four DVD and Blu-ray. In the exclusive bonus commentary, seen exclusively above, producers, including Gale Anne Hurd, and stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and David Morrissey (The Governor), break down one of The Walking Dead's most shocking deaths yet. "Just as [Rick] thinks it's all lost, he sees Hershel with a kind of serenity on his face," Lincoln explains. "As soon as it

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is reprising his role as the eponymous robot, announced the title via Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday.
Along with the picture, Schwarzenegger wrote, “Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenysis for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding. From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you.”
"I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator,” the actor added.
Ditlow, who was most recently director of development at Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment, will be responsible for ramping up and overseeing Offspring’s development and production slate in drama and comedy for both broadcast and cable through its deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
“We are thrilled to be bringing Meredith into Offspring,” said Gibgot and Shankman.
The hire comes at a choice time for Offspring. Shankman and Gibgot recently sold gay rights drama project “Open City” to HBO. They also sold projects to E!, Bravo and MTV through their overall with Warner Horizon. They are currently working on New Line’s “Mean Moms,” eyeing a fall start. The duo has worked on numerous projects together including all five “Step Up” films, “The Last Song, »

Since it was first published by Image Comics back in 2003, The Walking Dead has become a pop culture phenomenon, spawning a range of successful novels, video games and even action figures. However, all of that pales in comparison to the success of the TV adaptation, which has become the most popular show in the Us among the highly coveted 18-49 demographic. The premiere of season four was watched by 16.1 million viewers, making it the most popular opening episode the show has received yet.
Who would have thought a black and white comic book about zombies would have become so popular?
A new trailer for season five was recently unveiled at Comic Con and the response was overwhelmingly positive. With rumors circulating that more major cast members will be shot/eaten/disemboweled in the new series, anticipation is at an all-time high for the programs return on October 12th.

While there are many who will argue that Ridley Scott's "Alien" is still the pinnacle of the franchise, there is an equal number who argue passionately for James Cameron's "Aliens" as the high point in the series. But no matter which side of the fence you're on, it can't be denied that the director took the monumental task of making the followup, and delivered in a big way. So let's travel back to nearly three decades ago (damn, we're old) with this vintage press kit featurette for the film. Running eight minutes long, it goes behind-the-scenes of the making of the movie, laying out the story, with insights from Sigourney Weaver, James Cameron and producer Gale Anne Hurd. The director describes his movie as a "dark action piece, with a very warm human center," adding that it's his goal to connect with the characters. Meanwhile, Hurd contends that »

Lest you fret that everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic zombie drama was going to mellow with age in its fifth season, Andrew Lincoln has some news for you. When discussing The Walking Dead’s penchant for killing off characters during a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) at Comic-Con, Lincoln told us “It is an inevitable part of this show. It’s one of the great things, I think, that you have real jeopardy for favorite characters. It won’t be without its share of death this season.” Uh-oh, sounds like some necks may be on the line in season »

Gale Anne Hurd rose to the pinnacle of Hollywood by producing some of the biggest and brashest films in history, none more so than “The Terminator,” directed by her then-husband James Cameron. Yet when thinking about the current state of the movie business, Hurd referenced another one of Cameron's movies – “Titanic.” “They can see the iceberg coming,” Hurd told TheWrap at Comic-Con. Hurd is no longer on the ship. She has moved on to television, producing “The Walking Dead,” the highest-rated cable show in America. She will have no involvement in the upcoming reboot of “The Terminator,” nor does she. »

Even the presence of a fan in full 'walker' costume was not enough to faze the show's stars at a Q&A session
You may know them as a group of ragtag humans fighting for survival in a zombie-infested world, but the cast of AMC's The Walking Dead were able to turn down the grit and host a surprisingly funny presentation at Comic-Con on Friday.
The event, which offered fans a first glimpse at the new season to premiere in October, was one of the most highly anticipated of the convention. The panel, moderated by Chris Hardwick and made up of stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Chad Coleman (Dennis Wise), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Steven Yeun (Glenn Ree), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Green), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier), Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) and Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford), with comic book writer Robert Kirkman and executive producers Scott Gimple, Gale Anne Hurd, »

Yesterday Andrew reported in from the Sdcc panel for "The Walking Dead," the Season 5 trailer arrived, and we took part in roundtables with the cast and crew, the highlights of which you'll find right here.
The press room for the series was, as usual, quite hectic, resulting in our not being able to chat with a few of the principals, but those we did have a chance to grill about the upcoming season revealed just enough to leave us anxiously awaiting October 12th, when Season 5 will debut.
We asked Danai Gurira about Michonne's state of mind as things resume, and she said the character is "dealing with circumstances" in an "intensely macro and micro" way. She has "some great interpersonal relationships" going on, like with Carl and Rick, but it's "intense getting to know the new people."
As for working without her trusty sword, Gurira said it's not an issue because "she doesn't need it. »

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. Gimple, »

A lot has happened in the Walking Dead universe since last year's Comic Con panel. I won't get in to spoilers for the uninitiated, but suffice to say there was more than one fewer seat on stage in Hall H this year.

Thursday was a big first day for live-blogging at San Diego Comic-Con. I live-blogged "Penny Dreadful," "Community," "Under the Dome" (ugh) and "24." Friday (July 25) started with "Big Bang Theory," which I'll write up later, but didn't live-blog. Now it's time for chaos, with live-blogs for "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" and "Arrow," plus possibly "The Originals," depending on timing. Whee! Up first? The Hall H panel for "The Walking Dead," which is likely to be as big as any panel at Comic-Con, featuring stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman and Michael Cudlitz, showrunner Scott Gimple, franchise creator Robert Kirkman, long-running EPs Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert, producer-director-makeup genius Greg Nicotero and moderator Chris Hardwick, who might as well be on the panel himself. Let's see what goes down! 12:25 p.m. We're running a bit late. But we'll be starting soon. »
