The Walking Dead is returning to television this weekend, which is a big deal for fans of the series, including myself. However, there’s more to be excited about if you’re an undead-loving gamer, as Telltale Games has officially confirmed that the first episode of its three-part The Walking Dead: Michonne mini-series will also debut near the end of this wintry month.

‘Spotlight,’ Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson Lead 2016 SAG Award Winners

30 January 2016 7:22 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In naming Spotlight one of the best ensembles of 2016, we said, “Tom McCarthy’s procedural moves with the precision of a fine timepiece. Rarely does one find a film where all is tune, from the pacing, writing, direction and acting. Highlighting the heroic work of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team, the group is headed by Robby Robinson (Michael Keaton) who risks life long friendships to get the story right. His team includes Mike Rezendes (played by a compulsive Mark Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams) and Matt Caroll (Brian d’Arcy James). Encouraged by a Boston outsider, editor Marty Baron (Live Schreiber), the team undertakes a long-term investigation of abuses in the Catholic Church. In the mix are the lawyers on both sides, played by Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup. Rightfully overshadowing that other journalism docudrama, James Vanderbilt’s incompetent Truth, the difference here amongst many things is perhaps access: »
