Manhattan becomes ground zero for a deadly viral outbreak and vampire turf war in Season 1 of FX's The Strain, the hit new series from Guillermo Del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan that will be making its Blu-ray debut on a December 2 release date.

The Strain stars David BradleyMía Maestro, Corey Stoll, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Jack Kesy, Miguel Gomez, Ben Hyland and Natalie Brown in a story that starts with the delivery of an ancient vampire master to JFK airport aboard a doomed flight, and the subsequent why, how and what's next upon this master's arrival.

The 13-episode first season of The Strain averaged 2.21 million viewers for FX and earned a second season renewal before the first season had fully aired.  It's based on the books of the same name by del Toro and Hogan so there's still plenty of source material to work with.

Screamfest Highlight: ‘Dark Was the Night’

9 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Things are definitely going bump in the night in Jack Heller’s new creature feature. A highly anticipated entry in this year’s Screamfest, the foremost horror film festival in the country, “Dark Was the Night” will feature Kevin Durand (“Lost”), Bianca Kajlich (“Rules of Engagement”), Lukas Haas (“Inception”), Nick Damici (“Stake Land”), and a decidedly creepy something lurking in the woods. Previously titled “The Trees,” the script by Tyler Hisel appeared on the 2009 Black List of best unproduced screenplays. That year’s list, compiled and voted on by over 250 film executives, included “The Social Network,” “The Spectacular Now,” and “Prisoners.” Dylan K. Narang, Stefan Nowicki, Dallas Sonnier, and Heller himself began production in 2012, filming in Southampton, N.Y. Hisel’s first produced script is poised to thrill and terrify audiences with its homage to the classic monster genre. The story, which is reportedly—and frightfully—based on true events, »

Superman Returns & X-men Origins: Wolverine Concept Art

8 October 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Conceptual illustrator Dorotka Sapinska worked on designs for Bryan Singer's Superman Returns (2006) and Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). The first set is from Superman Returns and includes various hairstyle designs for Lex Luthor's henchwoman, Kitty Kowalski (played by Parker Posey). Also, tattoo designs for Lex Luthor's henchman that is killed by a paino  Jason White (Tristan Lake Leabu), aka Superboy, happens to fling at him. The second set of images were for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and they feature tattoo designs for The Blob/Fred J. Dukes (Kevin Durand) and other mutant characters.  He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiance and a Pulitzer for "Why the World »

FX’s ‘The Strain’ Finale Goes For the Throat (Spoilers)

5 October 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a summer of Isis terrorism and Ebola fears, “The Strain” could have hardly been better timed. Initially something of an oddity for FX – a vampires-among-us fantasy, on a network steeped in gritty realism – the adaptation of Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s creation piled on layers of mythology, bounding ahead with new characters and increasingly fantastic situations that, frankly, would have felt less palatable had the show not gradually built up to them. That concluded in Sunday’s action-laden finale, which neatly laid out countless possibilities looking forward to a second season.

That the show concluded its season a week before “The Walking Dead” returns represents an odd form of symmetry, since in many ways, “The Strain” plays like the natural companion to AMC’s runaway hit. If ever a case could be made for networks engineering baseball-like trades – “We’ll give you ‘Halt and Catch Fire,’ and »

David Bradley Talks The Strain, Replacing John Hurt, The Master, Getting to Play a Hero After Game Of Thrones, and More

5 October 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and showrunner Carlton Cuse, The Strain was one of the most entertaining shows of the summer, telling the story of an epic battle for survival between man and vampire.  When Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control in New York City, and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak that is eerily similar to an ancient and evil strain of vampirism, they quickly realize that they are waging war for the fate of humanity itself.  The show also stars David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Kevin Durand, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown and Jack Kesy. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor David Bradley (who plays Abraham Setrakian, a man of few words who never leaves home without an arsenal and a bad-ass sword that’s perfect for vampire beheadings) talked »

'Walking Dead' Wants 'Strain' Actor as Villain Negan?

30 September 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kevin Durand, who plays Vasiliy Fet on FX's The Strain, recently held a conference call to promote the show's season finale, The Master, where he also revealed that AMC has approached him to play the villainous Negan on The Walking Dead.

Here's what the actor had to say, when asked about different TV shows the fans would like to see him in.

"I've had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named 'Negan,' but I haven't read the comic."

After The Governor (David Morrissey) was killed off during Season 4's action-packed mid-season finale, many fans wondered if the iconic Negan would finally pop up on the series. Comic book creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman confirmed in December that the villain would not show up in Season 4, revealing there needs to be some space between The Governor's death and Negan's debut. »

Update: Wolverine Star Kevin Durand Being Eyed To Play 'Negan' In The Walking Dead?

30 September 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Walking Dead comic book series have been wondering when and if Negan would appear in the TV show, and it sounds as if it will be sooner rather than later! According to Nuke The Fridge, Kevin Durand revealed that AMC have approached him to play the foul mouthed and sadistic villain in a recent conference call promoting The Strain. The actor is quoted as saying, "I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named ‘Negan,’ but I haven’t read the comic." Now, this isn't the most reliable of sites and they're quick to point out that they are the first report this news. Are they twisting his words (after all, it could be that Durand was referring to fans rather than those working on the series) or have they come across a huge scoop? »

The Strain, Ep. 1.12, “Last Rites” is only a test

29 September 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 12, “Last Rites”

Written by Carlton Cuse, David Weddle & Bradley Thompson

Directed by Peter Weller

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

The penultimate episode of The Strain‘s first season reminds us most of “Across the Sea”, the third-last episode of Lost‘s final season. That episode came very near the end of Lost‘s run, but left the present action to show the origins of Island inhabitants Jacob and the Man in Black. Choosing to halt the action and go back into the past to tell a story that only revealed a small amount and to do so that late in the season felt misguided and a little pointless. “Last Rites” is not quite as much of a side-step, but the return of Setrakian’s flashbacks was certainly a surprising development.

The lucky thing is that these generally work better than the Holocaust flashbacks earlier in the season. »

26 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Today we have the exclusive teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror movie, and it sets the mood nicely.

'Real Steel 2' Secretly Being Planned; Hugh Jackman Will Return

7 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his new film This Is Where I Leave You, director Shawn Levy revealed that he has secretly been developing a sequel to his 2011 hit Real Steel for the past 3 and a half years.

The filmmaker revealed that Hugh Jackman is ready to reprise his role as Charlie Kenton, but they will only make a follow-up if they can find a fresh story.

"We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years. We've come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we've found both but never at the same time. It's ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that did very well globally--it did okay domestically--but the love for Real Steel remains kind of unique »

Doctor Who series 8: Robot Of Sherwood review

6 September 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Spoilers: here's our review of Doctor Who series 8 episode 3, Mark Gatiss' Robot Of Sherwood.

This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.

8.3 Robot Of Sherwood

"And do people ever punch you in the face?"

Three weeks into Peter Capaldi’s reign, and he gets an episode that’s more playful, dafter and – well – just plain funny.

When it was announced that Doctor Who was doing a Robin Hood episode, there was a suspicion that the character would be treated with a degree of seriousness, a bit of reverence, and one of those moments where it’s seen that the Doctor was responsible for some momentous piece of British history. You’ll be telling us he could have stopped the Great Fire Of London at this rate... *

But Robot Of Sherwood, from the pen of Mark Gatiss, veers off in a different direction. If this had been an episode »
