Watch The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer

1 hour ago

The main cast and producers of The Walking Dead took the stage for their Comic-Con panel this afternoon and showed a crowd of 6,500 the official Season 5 trailer with over three minutes of brand new footage. Thankfully, AMC knows that The Walking Dead fans at home can barely stand the wait and they’ve released the Season 5 trailer for all to watch.

Taking place right where we left Rick’s group during the Season 4 finale, the trailer shows that their stay at Terminus takes quite a different direction than fans may have been expecting, while still sticking to the overall comic book series path. We see plenty of new footage of Andrew J. West as Garth, the leader of Terminus, and there’s a quick shot of Seth Gilliam’s new role in the show. Those wondering what happened to Beth also get a good tease that leaves many more questions than answers. »

Impressions of the Goosebumps Comic-Con Panel, Featuring Jack Black

20 hours ago

There’s never a dull moment when Jack Black is around, and today’s Goosebumps discussion panel proved it. Sharing the stage with friend and director of the film, Rob Letterman, the two brought an effortless humor to the proceedings as they discussed their time working together on the film.

This led to the exciting reveal of the first sizzle reel for the upcoming film. Only a minute or two in length, it successfully relayed the level of humor and charm Jack Black is known for in his younger audience films. Playing a fictional version of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, Jack Black is a campy, creepy recluse who appears dead set on keeping his daughter from straying too far from home. This situation leads a new neighbor to try and save Stine’s daughter after he sees what he thinks is her being attacked.

23 hours ago

Earlier this week, two titans in genre filmmaking came together at the Vista Theater in Los Angeles for truly one of the most incredible Q&A’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of witnessing. In honor of the recently completed restored print of his 1974 visceral classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Tobe Hooper was joined by long-time friend and mentor William Friedkin for a candid discussion of his timeless gut-punch horror movie.

Here are just some of the highlights from Hooper and Friedkin’s amazing chat last night’s amazing CineFamily Texas Chain Saw event:

But then someone told me about a little film that was made for not a lot of money near Austin, »
