First Full-Length Trailer Arrives For Dead Rising: Watchtower

9 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fevered excitement of a potential zombie apocalypse is a perfect mining ground for an array of entertainment arenas. From TV shows, video games and movies, there’s never been a better time to pronounce your love of those flesh-gobbling undead shufflers than turning to a screen near you. While AMC’s The Walking Dead has commandeered the small screen for several years now, Legendary are hoping to take a swipe at the zombie flagship with their effort, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation showcases its roots in this first full-length trailer, which presents a mix of violent splatter-movie motifs and tongue-in-cheek comedy. In this case, its loyalty isn’t to a novel or comic book, but to the best-selling video game series which has so far shifted over 7.6 million units worldwide.

Starring Jesse Metcalf, Dennis Haysbert and Virginia Madsen, Dead Rising: Watchtower explores familiar territory to most »

Dead Rising: Watchtower Unveils Gory First Clip

4 March 2015 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little over three weeks until its premiere, Crackle has debuted the first clip for Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

As with the vast majority of other entries into the genre, this snippet features that scene; where the infected spanner gets thrown into the works and all hell breaks loose. Starring Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy, we see the show’s main characters begin to piece together the puzzle to discover that, much like the title suggests, the dead are indeed beginning to rise up for a spot of lunch.

Mixing some interesting cinematography with first-person shots, Dead Rising: Watchtower is decidedly low-key, and that’s precisely the angle Lipovsky is aiming for. The fact that his adaptation is hitting the web as a digital release will no doubt allow for more creative freedom outside of the typical studio system, and we hope that the writing »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Rob Riggle, Jane Curtin Co-star in Fox Comedy 48 Hours Til Monday

24 February 2015 12:01 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The man who did Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice is teaming up with a legendary Weekend Update anchor to do a show about a husband/father trying to ensure his family has fun weekends. Rob Riggle plays the father figure in this 30-minute single-cam sitcom, and Jane Curtin plays his lax, live-in mother-in-law. Sounds kind of like a mix of Everybody Loves Raymond and Liar Liar, but it'll be called 48 Hours Til Monday. »
