26 February 2015 6:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're back with another video round-up that should excite fans of The Walking Dead, James Bond, and Salem's John Alden. The first trailer for Arc Entertainment's The Walking Deceased, a horror comedy spoof of AMC's The Walking Dead and other living dead films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, has been released, along with a new behind-the-scenes look at the 24th Bond film, Spectre, and another teaser for season two of Wgn America's Salem.

The Walking Deceased (slated for a March 20th release): "The Walking Deceased is a delightfully bloody addition to the pantheon of zombie-apocalypse spoofs. Lampooning every tried and true zombie meme. Join the Sheriff with his son, and a motley crew of survivors as they weather confrontations with zombies, meet up and then leave their tattered camp–a partially destroyed shopping mall.

Spectre: new pictures, new behind the scenes video

26 February 2015 12:44 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A first look at Dave Bautista in the new James Bond film. Plus Sam Mendes on why he returned after Skyfall...

The fourth installment of the Daniel Craig as 007 era will be upon us at the end of the year with Spectre, and with Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) returning to the helm of the series, we've good feelings about where this is heading.

Perhaps that is why in our first actual behind-the-scenes footage of Spectre, Eon Productions is comfortable enough to let Mendes walk us through where James Bond 24 is heading with the character. While speaking in the below video blog, Mendes explains a concept that we haven’t seen really explored since GoldenEye: Bond is now the veteran and M is the newbie with something to prove.

In many ways, I am detecting that Mendes and screenwriter John Logan are in several sneaky ways pulling from »

Exclusive: Timothy Dalton is in pain in new 'Penny Dreadful' character posters

25 February 2015 2:07 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Many TV viewers are counting the days for the return of "Game of Thrones" or "Mad Men."  Those are fine programs that I'll certainly enjoy every week, but the series I'm dying to return to television?  "Penny Dreadful." John Logan's Victorian Era creation shocked me with a set of kick off episodes directed by J.A. Bayona ("The Impossible," the upcoming "A Monster Calls") which were simply two of the most cinematic hours of television I've ever seen (Fienberg and Sepinwall would no doubt quarrel with me on this, but…).  And while the directors of episodes 3-8 weren't exactly as visionary (James Hawes was the best of the rest) it was some impressive writing and the incredible performances of Eva Green (robbed of Golden Globe and SAG nominations), Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett that sucked me in ( and, yes, it's easily the best thing Hartnett has ever done. »

Spectre Filming Vlog In Austria And First Look Image

14 February 2015 9:39 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s time to get ready for Spectre, and while the last James Bond film didn’t wow me, and I think specifically because Sam Mendes was in charge, watching Bond finally go up against a villainous organization (as opposed to a goofy loon and/or his childhood) is going to be something worth watching.

The film has released a short, production diary vlog, which shows off the pure awesome that is filming in Austria, and it’s worth watching.

Give it a look, and start getting excited for Bond, and Dave Bautista.

12 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The threats James Bond, aka 007, must obliterate are global in scale and often massive in size.

If you’re already itching to get in line for the new Bond film, the first behind-the-scenes video from the star-studded set has been unveiled, along with a new image, to help hold you over until the film’s planned November 6th release date.

Though the Spectre cast and crew are now shooting in England, it wasn’t long ago they were engaging in car chases and shootouts in the crisp air of the Austrian Alps, as shown in the video and image below.

Go Behind the Scenes With James Bond in This Snowy 'Spectre' Clip (Video)

12 February 2015 1:16 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are few movies being released this year that are as fiendishly anticipated as "Spectre," the new James Bond film starring Daniel Craig. Production recently got underway, and Sony and MGM have helpfully released a behind-the-scenes clip of a giant action set piece that takes place in the snowy mountains of Austria. (Seriously, though, how in the hell are they getting this movie shot, edited, and all effects'd up by November? Good lord that seems like an undertaking.)

You only see the briefest glimpses of what they're actually shooting, since the movie is, like all Bond productions, notoriously secretive. But you do get to see Craig running around and shooting a gun as 007, plus brief interviews with new Bond girl Lea Seydoux and Dave Bautista, who presumably plays a big scary henchman. Still no sight of Christoph Waltz, who plays the big bad, although when I ran into him at a "Big Eyes" press conference, »
