Nonetheless, there is a case — a strong case, in fact — to be made that the Walking Dead prequel has gotten good, is getting better and is showing signs that it will eventually become every bit as gripping as the monster smash off of which it was spun.

A first trailer has arrived online for director Nate Parker’s upcoming drama The Birth of a Nation. Based on the true story of Nat Turner, an enslaved African-American who led a rebellion of slaves in Virginia in 1831, the film sees Parker leading a cast that also includes Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union, Aunjanue Ellis, Aja Naomi King, Colman Domingo and Penelope Ann Miller. Take a look below after the official synopsis…
Set against the antebellum South, The Birth Of A Nation follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities — against himself and his fellow slaves — Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.
The Birth of a Nation is set for release on October 7th. »

Since its barnstorming world premiere during this year’s Sundance Film Festival, it’s been onwards and upwards for Nate Parker’s impassioned race drama The Birth of a Nation.
Upon landing a lucrative and record-breaking deal at Fox Searchlight – an eye-watering $17.5 million, no less – the period piece completed the proverbial one-two punch by nailing down an opportune October release window. And now, you can see what all the fuss is about with the film’s powerful first trailer.
Rooted in the throes of the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation will place Parker the role of Nat Turner, a brave, unflinching rebel who sparked a landmark uprising – one that would go down in the history books as one of the most important in the country’s troubled history.
Written and directed by Parker, the one-man creative army will spearhead said rebellion as “Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, »

As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.
In his Sundance Film Festival review, The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy says the film, “offers up more than enough in terms of intelligence, insight, historical research and religious nuance to not at all be considered a missed opportunity. Far more of the essentials made it into the film than not; its makers’ dedication and minute attention are constantly felt, and the subject matter is still rare enough onscreen as to be welcome and needed, »

The Walking Dead franchise is one of the biggest things going on TV righter now. So it should come as no surprise that AMC has renewed Fear the Walking Dead for Season 3 only after one Season 2 episode has aired. Consisting of 16 all-new episodes, the Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson created horror drama will return in 2017 after this latest run finishes in late 2016. President of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios Charlie Collier had this to say to Deadline today.
"What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in Fear The Walking Dead is to be applauded. Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world - it's fresh, eerie and compelling and we're all in for the ride."

If you were even casually paying attention to the Sundance Film Festival this year, you likely heard the big noise surrounding Nate Parker's "The Birth Of A Nation." Greeted with a rapturous reception in Park City, Fox Searchlight scooped up the movie for staggering $17.5 million, and with an awards-season release date set, the push has begun to turn this one into a big hit.

The biggest success story at this year’s Sundance Film Festival — or any festival in history, if we’re talking about the acquisition price — was certainly Nate Parker‘s writing-directing debut The Birth of a Nation. Picked up by Fox Searchlight for a record $17.5 million, the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner tells the true story of Nat Turner’s slave rebellion. We’ve still got half-a-year to go before it arrives in theaters, but today Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer.
I said in my review, “Directed, written, produced by, and starring Nate Parker, the Nat Turner biopic The Birth of a Nation is an unflinching and hopeful call to action where the helmer’s passion can be felt in every frame. By nodding to D. W. Griffith’s controversial, formally groundbreaking 1915 film, Parker is forging a new cinematic history for one of America’s most shameful eras. »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
Any Walking Dead fans still seething about that season finale cliffhanger might want to think twice before diving into the somewhat anticipated return of Fear the Walking Dead. In its second season, the prequel/spinoff seems to have taken more cues from its sister show than it did throughout its tight, six-episode first season, meaning that what made Fear a sporadically thrilling but surprisingly thoughtful take on societal breakdown when it arrived last summer has largely been cast aside in favor of a plodding procedural structure that reimagines the cast of characters as a traveling band of misfits witnessing the end of the world one tragedy at a time.
Unlike last season, which was set in a rapidly crumbling Los Angeles, Fear‘s sophomore run strands its protagonists at sea, on an expensive-looking yacht either owned or stolen by the mysterious Victor Strand »

Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven’t seen the season two premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead.”
The first season of “Fear the Walking Dead” was often criticized for being too slow for its short six-episode season. The show opted to focus on the terrifying rigors of suburban life under military occupation over the zombie apocalypse surrounding them. The second season finally seems to be putting the whole idea of “zombies are a part of our everyday lives now” concept into full effect.
The second season begins with the survivors of the first season running for the sanctuary that is a yacht. The survivors include: Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), her kids Nick (Frank Dillane) and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), her boyfriend Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis), his son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie), Daniel Salazar (Ruben Blades) — a quiet man with a predilection for torture — his daughter Ofelia (Mercedes Mason »

The “Fear the Walking Dead” gang have encountered what could be their first major threat of the season, and as the old adage goes, the real danger is from other humans, not zombies. As Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) was tasked with monitoring the radio to try to find safe passage for the Abigail, she connected with a mysterious voice, a man who called himself Jack. As Alicia seemed to form a genuine connection with Jack, she tried to convince Strand (Colman Domingo), her mother (Kim Dickens) and Travis (Cliff Curtis) to pick up Jack and his small band of fellow survivors. »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season two premiere of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.] AMC's Fear the Walking Dead returned with new threats for the survivors during Sunday's season two premiere. Led by the mysterious Victor Strand (Colman Domingo), the blended family set out for the high seas on board The Abigail, a fancy yacht well-equipped for what may be a lot of time out on the open water. However, where Strand is taking the group remains a mystery. The season opener set up multiple clashes on board the boat: Strand doesn't want to take

As “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 1 came to an end, the blended families of Travis (Cliff Curtis), Madison (Kim Dickens) and Daniel (Ruben Blades) took refuge with the mysterious Victor Strand and planned to embark for safety on his yacht, The Abigail. Strand (Colman Domingo) remains mostly a mysterious force, with mysterious motives, which naturally reminded fans of mothership show “The Walking Dead” of another character who is familiar to comic book fans and who finally made an appearance in the form of Jeffrey Dean Morgan on the recent “Walking Dead” Season 6 finale. “Who am I? Am I Negan? »

Last time we saw the families at the center of “Fear the Walking Dead,” they had just seen, perhaps for the first time, the scale of devastation caused by the impending zombie apocalypse. As Madison (Kim Dickens) and Travis (Cliff Curtis) and their somewhat blended family took refuge with the mysterious Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) at his palatial oceanfront home, Los Angeles was rapidly becoming a war zone behind them. When we catch up with this ragtag gang in Season 2, they’ll be on board Strand’s yacht, which we glimpsed as their escape vehicle at the end of Season 1. And. »

“Fear the Walking Dead” returns, looking every bit as much at sea, dramatically speaking, as it did throughout its truncated first season, only now, that can be said more literally. The idea of capturing the zombie apocalypse as it began, from a character-driven, family drama point of view, wasn’t a bad one, but this “Walking Dead” spin-off thus far hasn’t developed a cast to keep the premise afloat. Indeed, while it provided a nice ending to season one, the conceit of putting everyone on a boat – while answering some questions about zombie buoyancy – has if anything at least temporarily exacerbated the show’s problems.
To be fair, “Fear” did make one strong addition in the later episodes, thanks to the character of Strand (Colman Domingo), the mysterious benefactor who shepherded the survivors to his palatial home and eventually onto his yacht, Abigail. He provides a strong presence that the program at first lacked, »
