It took a long time for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get the green light and I assume that's for a reason. I wasn't as large a detractor when it came to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as most (he threw a cow people!), but I have to assume the major selling point behind getting this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's revisionist novel is the fact not only will Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters be hunting zombies, but they'll be embracing keeping their weapons in some of the most discrete of places. Along with a batch of new pictures from the film, Entertainment Weekly has a quote from star Lily James, who plays Elizabeth Bennet, saying, "Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets... She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." The Bennet sister are trained to fight like ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) and the film has »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have a bunch of new photos from the upcoming "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," starring Lily James (Cinderella), Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey. Check everything out below. Plot: A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield. The new movie is directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and is set to hit theaters on February 5th, 2016. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.
A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

EW’s rather fantastic San Diego Comic-Con Preview continues with fresh new images from the long in development, at last in production adaption of Seth Graheme-Smith’s famous literature/zombie mash-up, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, starring Lily James, Sam Riely, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, and Charles Dance. There’s not much zombie action on display here, but plenty of Jane Austen’s heroines as bad ass zombie fighters, and a real sense that director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) is going for a very grounded tone to the material. As he tells EW, “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink. It’s definitely not camp.” Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is released in the U.S. on February 5th 2016, and »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

The latest take on Jane Austen’s classic love story is a little, how should we say… revisionist. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, out next February, it is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.
Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which riffed raucously on Austen’s classic, this new Pride and Prejudice imagines Elizabeth Bennet and her corset-clad sisters as warriors of the Victorian era, searching for husbands while simultaneously fending off hordes of the undead.
“Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets,” says Lily James, the Cinderella actress who plays Elizabeth, to EW, which debuted the above images. Of Lizzy, James says, “She’s the most badass zombie slayer there is.”
Even more fascinating than the reimagined Elizabeth, though, may be the tone director Burr Steers is aiming to strike. »

ABC’s Celebrity Family Feud this Sunday drew 8.1 million total viewers and a 1.8 rating, slipping 7 and 25 percent from its premiere yet leading the night in both measures, edging out Big Brother in the demo.
Leading out of the Feud, BattleBots (4.9 mil/1.4) was down 9 and 26 percent from its debut.

CBS’ aforementioned Big Brother did 5.7 mil and a 1.7, off a tenth from its year-ago Sunday premiere (and thus hitting an all-time Sunday low), and down 11 and 19 percent from last Thursday’s telecast. Fun fact: The Madam Secretary rerun at 9 pm (4.2 mil/0.6) matched the Reckless premiere’s year-ago numbers. »
One of the most famous lines uttered by Arnold Schwarzenegger's murder-powered cyborg is "I'll be back." And on July 1, the T-800 will once again be true to his word when "Terminator: Genisys" hits theaters.
The fifth "Terminator" movie aims to robo-punch you right in the nostalgia center, much like "Jurassic World" did, with its twisty, time-travel story that pays homage to the franchise's first two films (while completely, and wisely, ignoring the existence of meh entries "Rise of the Machines" and "Salvation.")
To prepare you for another trip to the land of Skynet, here are all the things you need to know about "Genisys," which picks up where James Cameron's original 1984 film left off.
1. It's a Reboot. »

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Time is a strange thing. Scientists say a watch travelling in a jet will experience time more slowly than the same watch in a tug boat. It won't slow the watch down - it literally experiences time differently. Speed affects time, basically. Which probably explains why Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of those very rare films that feels long, but is never boring. Time slows down for it because it moves so fast.
It's also very much a product of its time. Terminator 2 is a violent film, made in a violent period of history. According to James Cameron, the Rodney King beating didn't just take place near the biker bar they shot Arnie's opening scenes in, it happened on a night Terminator 2 was filming. There's something too eerie about that story for it not to be true. After all, what was more prescient in 1991 than the sight of an »
This Sunday on the American Odyssey season finale (NBC, 10/9c), presumed-dead, rumored-to-be-alive Sgt. Odelle Ballard is poised to meet the press — a prospect that makes of our protagonists curiously anxious.
As the world discovers the truth about Odelle (played by Anna Friel), she finally has a chance to tell her story, to Times reporter Isabel Rainey (Big Love‘s Branka Katic). But as seen in the sneak peek below, as Peter (Peter Facinelli) and Harrison (Jake Robinson) discuss this imminent, sure-to-be-explosive interview, one of the gents fears the worst. »
Fresh off the unveiling of the lineup for Preview Night and Thursday, Comic-Con has released their schedule for Friday, July 10th, and it's supremely underwhelming. Save for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel late in the day, there's really nothing "must-see" in Hall H. The Game of Thrones panel is lacking some of the show's biggest stars, including Peter Dinklage, Lena Heady, and Kit Harington or even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and the Hall H festivities close out with a look at Kevin Smith's new film Yoga Hosers. This is a far cry from the Friday Hall H lineup just a few years ago, and the lack of Disney, Paramount, and Sony is certainly showing. All the "good stuff" (save for Star Wars) seems like it's being relegated to Saturday. Rather than post the entire schedule, we’ve pulled out highlights for the biggest panels »

Cersei’s much-anticipated walk of atonement during Game of Thrones’ season finale was as powerful as one could have expected, with star Lena Headey bringing the emotional gravity to the scene. While Headey’s performance has rightfully been lauded, there is a second actress deserving of credit – body double Rebecca Van Cleave. Rebecca Van Cleave’s Walk […]

Early next year, zom-rom-com fans will finally be able to see the living dead roam the 19th-century English countryside in the manners/zombie mash-up, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Screen Gems will also be debuting the first look footage from Patient Zero, which stars Smith and Natalie Dormer. Director Stefan Ruzowitzky and screenwriter Mike Le will also take the stage. »

While a few of the major movie studios are sitting out comic-con this year, TV is going to be present in a big way. HBO and Cinemax have just added a couple more to the (already huge) TV pile with Hall H staple Game of Thrones and the new Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) series Outcast. The Game of Thrones is set for Hall H at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 10. Seth Meyers will moderate the panel that includes executive producer Carolyn Strauss and director David Nutter (who directed three of the series' most devastating episodes - 'Mother's Mercy', 'The Dance of Dragons' and 'The Rains of Castamere'), and cast members Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten and Maisie Williams.
