John Sayles’ latest film, Go For Sisters, receives an unceremonious DVD release from Freestyle Digital Media. While it snagged Yolonda Ross a supporting Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards after a muted theatrical release, it seems there will be less ado championing the home viewing release. Denied a Blu-ray option, Edward James Olmos still takes top billing even though the film belongs to actresses Ross and LisaGay Hamilton. Despite the continuation of this maligned marketing, with a little luck, Sayles’ best film in years will hopefully reach the broader audience it deserves.
An independent filmmaker who has been directing films without studio backing since 1979, infamously securing financing through penning genre screenplays (Piranha; Alligator). As such, one can often look forward to the offbeat flavor of his work, a true master of developing the unexpected in relationships between people, often crafted against delirious narratives that are sometimes labyrinthine in scope and »

The last time anyone really adapted the material of Hellblazer and main character John Constantine, occult detective, for the screen was 2005′s film Constantine, which got mixed reviews, although I personally thought it was pretty decent. After rumors of other adaptations to come throughout the years, on October 24 on NBC we will finally be seeing another screen vision of John Constantine come to life, and I can’t wait!
At Sdcc I got to talk to the new show’s executive producers and cast, and they had some fun and interesting things to share. Check it out!

Pee-wee’s next big adventure is landing him on The Blacklist.

This September 10th will find a new zombie drama gracing your TV screens. Of course, whether you’ll tune in or not, or tune in and stick around, will be entirely up to you. The Syfy channel is getting into the undead game with “Z Nation,” which takes place 3 years after a zombie plague, and finds a group of people, including one lone badass soldier, trying to transport the only living known zombie survivor (he was bitten, but didn’t turn) from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab is located. The show, which is getting a 13-episode first season order from the cable network, stars “Lost’s” Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott and “Supernatural’s” DJ Qualls. Check out a short trailer for the drama below. Looks okay. Syfy channel cheap, yes, but hey, not every zombie drama can be “The Walking Dead,” right? »
Is AMC’s The Walking Dead about to have some serious competition? Syfy appears to be gunning for that post-apocalyptic ratings juggernaut’s fanbase with its next original series, titled Z Nation. As the title would suggest, the show takes place in a ravaged North America, three years after a zombie virus decimated the population and toppled the government.
The series centers on a small group of survivors who come across the only known human survivor of the plague. Working together, they must transport him across the country, from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab is waiting on his blood to hopefully find a cure. What the survivors don’t realize is that the man, humanity’s best hope for survival, is harboring dark secrets that could put everything in jeopardy.
It sounds like an interesting concept for a zombie series, as well as one that »

Produced by The Asylum, the company behind the cable channel’s hit Sharknado franchise, the post-apocalyptic horror series is set three years after a zombie virus ravaged the country. A team of “everyday heroes” transports the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab awaits his blood. While the antibodies he carries represent the world’s last, best hope, he also hides a dark secret that threatens everyone. The cast includes Harold Perrineau (Lost), DJ Qualls (The Loser), Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do), Michael Welch (Twilight), Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show), Anastasia Baranova (Veronica Mars), Russel Hodgkingson (21 & Over, Big Fish) and Keith Allan (Zombie Night, Rise of the Zombies).

Syfy has released the trailer for its new zombie series, “Z Nation,” which offers a new take on the popular zombie-thriller theme.
“Z Nation” follows a group of everyday heroes in their attempt to move the only known survivor of the zombie virus across the country to where a lab waits for his blood. Things are not as easy as the team would hope, as the band struggles across post-apocalyptic America while the survivor carries a dark secret.
From “Sharknado” production company The Asylum, the series stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch and Kellita Smith. Karl Schaefer will serve as executive producer and showrunner for “Z Nation,” with John Hyams on board to direct the pilot.
While rival networks are clamoring for a zombie thriller to compete with the runaway success of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” a fresh spin on the concept has yet to go the distance. »

There’s a new zombie drama coming to basic cable: Syfy’s Z Nation is a story of a band of survivors trekking across the country in the wake of an apocalyptic zombie plague, and the first full trailer is below. Syfy can only hope the show will deliver a healthy fraction of the audience that tune in to see TV’s highest-rated entertainment series—AMC’s The Walking Dead. There’s no Daryl Dixon, but there are zombie babies.

Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see »

After an extensive search, it looks like NBC has finally found its villain for Constantine. According to USA Today, newcomer Michael James Shaw has been cast in a recurring role as Papa Midnite, the “voodoo king of New Orleans” and a formidable magical adversary to the series’ titular supernatural detective.
Shaw is known for such riveting roles as “Caterer” in Today _ _ cks, “Homesless Man” on The Wire (uncredited), and “Don-o-mite” in an eponymous 2014 short film. Needless to say, Constantine is the biggest role he’s landed yet, and I’m interested to see what he does with it.
Papa Midnite was last played by Gladiator and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Djimon Hounsou, who was great in an otherwise lackluster film. In the comics, Midnite first appeared in Hellblazer issue #1 as an immortal mob boss, businessman, and voodoo practitioner operating out of New York City. He often operates on the wrong side of the law, »

(Cbr) NBC's "Constantine" has summoned Michael James Shaw in recurring guest role as Papa Midnite, the voodoo king of New Orleans. While the character was frequently an uneasy ally of John Constantine the the comic books, USA Today describes the role as "a formidable magical adversary" for the demon hunter (played by Matt Ryan). Created by Jamie Delano and John Ridgway, and introduced in 1988's "Hellblazer" #1, Papa Midnite is an immortal mob boss and voodoo practitioner with a long, tangled history with Constantine (for instance, although Constantine had stolen $50,000 from him, Midnite still agreed to help in his fight the hunger demon Mnemoth). Papa Midnite starred in his own 2005 Vertigo miniseries, which coincided with the release of the "Constantine" film, in which he was portrayed by Djimon Hounsou. The character was reintroduced last year in DC Comics' New 52 with "Constantine" #4. Shaw joins a cast that also includes Harold Perrineau, »

A short trailer drops for apocalypse survival show Z Nation, from Syfy
Ever looking to branch into new ventures, TV channel Syfy has recently released the first look at its zombie TV series Z Nation.
The trailer, which shows off the primary cast (including 28 Weeks Later alumnus Harold Perrineau and Breaking Bad/Lost/Scrubs supporting star DJ Qualls), also reveals the presumably significant plot-point of attempting to deliver the one man famed for surviving a zombie bite to the authorities.
Seeing as Z Nation is made by Sharknado production company The Asylum, it’s probably fair to expect a lower budget walking dead with more laughs. Here’s the trailer…
