4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

Harrison Ford Officially Returns to 'Blade Runner,' New Director Named

27 February 2015 2:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a good day to be a replicant: "Blade Runner," one of the most beloved and highly influential science fiction films of all time, will finally be getting its long-discussed sequel, set to shoot in the summer of 2016. And what's more - Harrison Ford will be back as futuristic private eye Rick Deckard in a story set "several decades" after the original film.

And, to add icing onto the cake, the producers have picked out probably the best filmmaker for this material not named Ridley Scott (and depending on your thoughts on Scott's return to the "Alien" franchise, "Prometheus," this could be a better choice) - "Prisoners" filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. In short: this movie is going to be awesome.

The press release laid out several more details, including that the screenplay for the new film was written by Michael Green and Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original film), from a »

Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

26 February 2015 6:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »

Exclusive Details Of Jessica Chastain’s Character In The Snow White And The Huntsman Sequel

25 February 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When word broke yesterday of Jessica Chastain’s casting in The Huntsman, a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, the trade papers were quick to say the details of her role are being kept secret. Only The Wrap offered any tangible information, describing Chastain’s character as being a love interest to Chris Hemsworth’s lead. I can start by backing that up.

In fact, The Warp cleverly word their description of the basic plot too, saying that the movie “expands the universe established in the first film to reveal how the fates of two characters, the Huntsman Eric and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White.” This description seems to be in step with ongoing reports that the film is a prequel.

But it isn’t. Not really.

There are scenes, for sure, that take place before the first film and fulfill the function described by The Wrap. »
