The cast of grungy zombie drama The Walking Dead have been getting the showbiz treatment over at Entertainment Weekly. Following their cover image, here are further character portraits which depict the remnants of Mankind in action as they sock it Kill Bill-style to the pesky rotting hordes.
Let’s kick off with grizzled pin up Norman Reedus, whose character Daryl Dixon has a fistful of vengeance for the shambling masses…
And if you think he looks busy check out Danai Gurira as Michonne…
She’s actually giving someone directions there, but I think we all agree she looks cooler than a penguin after a haircut.
Next up is series star Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes. He can’t remember being in this photoshoot – apparently it was a bit of a blur…
Finally we have a group shot, with everyone pleased to have discovered the world’s last trampoline. Steven Yeun »

Uma Thurman and Quentin Tarantino would make quite the power couple. After the 44-year-old Kill Bill actress reportedly split from her fiancé Arpad Busson, she was spotted with 51-year-old Tarantino on more than one occasion, where the longtime pals appeared to be getting quite cozy. This only served to fuel rumors that the Oscar-nominated actress and Pulp Fiction directior were dating, and until recently, both stayed mum on the romance reports Finally, though, Thurman is breaking her silence! In an interview with with Vs. Magazine, excerpted by the Daily Mail, the actress says, "I was discussing [the rumors] with Mr Tarantino last night. He was angry at me for not calling him back because as he said, »

True Blood may have ended Sunday, wrapping up seven seasons of fang-banging fun, but Sookie Stackhouse’s story is far from over.
The HBO drama’s final episode — in which Bill met the true death and Sookie found new love with a mystery man, among other twists — received a largely negative response from fans, garnering a big fat “F” from TVLine readers. But even more than anger, the finale left viewers with a million questions, which showrunner Brian Buckner happily fielded from the press on Monday.
First thing’s first: Who did Sookie end up married to? »
Here’s a video we know you’re going to Cherish.
HBO on Sunday aired the first official teaser for The Comeback‘s highly anticipated return, and it’s definitely something we do want to see.

Though brief, the teaser captures Lisa Kudrow in all her Valerrific glory, as she’s (sort of) swarmed by paparazzi and her (sort of) adoring fans.
An official premiere date has yet to be announced, but long-suffering fans can take heart knowing that several of their favorite characters will »
Still recovering from last night’s True Blood? Perhaps owning a piece of the series finale might ease your troubled mind.
HBO has been auctioning off costumes and set pieces from the past seven seasons on ScreenBid.com, and now, TVLine has an exclusive first look at some of the series-finale items being added to the collection — all from Hoyt and Jessica’s wedding.

The penultimate first season episode of The Leftovers takes us back in time three years, to the days leading up to the Sudden Departure. And, although the hour shows us exactly what its title promises — “The Garveys at Their Best” — it also reveals the cracks in the foundation of the family that probably would’ve broken it up even if the world hadn’t been turned upside-down. Shall we rewind?

One of the key criticisms bandied about regarding FrightFest in recent years has been the abundance of films which have focused on the brutalisation of women, something that even marked one of the festival’s usually rather fun “Turn Your Bloody Phone Off!” idents back in 2012. The recent I Spit On Your Grave efforts, Maniac, Hidden In The Woods and many other films have focused on this aspect, some have done so in a manner which feels like it has a point to make, some do so veering close to doing it in an exploitative sense, indeed the BBFC felt so with the cut version of I Spit… which played a couple of years ago.

He hasn’t even shot a foot of film on “The Hateful Eight” and we still can’t stop talking about Quentin Tarantino. Earlier this week, we showed you a supercut of every death and kill in Tarantino’s filmography, and yesterday brought a look at the teaser for the director’s latest. Today we traverse into the past again, but this time with a less violent result. Yesterday, editor Javier Virto posted a short supercut on Vimeo that shines a spotlight on some of the iconic sequences in Tarantino’s films which memorably used music. All the heavy hitter are accounted for: the Jack Rabbit Slims dance, the Mr. Blonde and cop interrogation, the lapdance scene in the extended cut of “Death Proof” and many others. While you’ll have to play the songs originally used in the scenes in your head —the video cuts all the scenes into »

Everyone seems to be talking about a solo female superhero movie lately. And sure, I think it has a lot of potential, but there is one sentiment that makes me cringe every time it gets mentioned. People keep saying how we, as a society, are finally ready for a solo female superhero film. Guess what! We aren’t finally ready for a solo female on the big screen. We’ve been ready for a good, long while now, and the reason we haven’t had a successful female superhero flick has nothing to do with the gender of the hero.
Now, prepare yourselves. Take some deep breaths. Count to ten. Whatever you need... Because we're going to look at some history.
There is no doubt that women, both real and fictional, have not always been treated as well as they should have been. It’s been a long road to »

I don't think it's a spoiler to say people die in Quentin Tarantino movies. I think it's pretty safe to assume people will die in his next movie, The Hateful Eight. Hell, people might even die in the upcoming teaser trailer for the film set to play in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend even though filming on the movie has yet to begin. That's how often people die in Tarantino movies and Vimeo user Jaume R. Lloret has taken upon himself to pore over Tarantino's filmography -- Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Kill: Bill Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Django Unchained (2012) -- and presents every death from a Tarantino film in the following four-minute supercut. Previously, Vanity Fair charted every death in Tarantino's movies can came up with approximately 560 total on-screen deaths (see the chart below the video »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...
For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”
Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »
One of the complaints many people have about the pop culture poster scene is that the same handful of movies keep getting posters. It’s a valid argument. Massively popular films like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski and Kill Bill do have infinitely more posters than their smaller counterparts. The reasons, though, […]

The world already knew Iggy Azalea could sing, dance and rap, but now we know she also could kick serious butt. See video: President Obama Raps Iggy Azalea's ‘Fancy,’ Music Fans Rejoice The Australian rapper dressed up like a sword-wielding Quentin Tarantino heroine in the video for her new single “Black Widow.” She collaborates with British musician Rita Ora on the song and in the colorful and interestingly choreographed video, which sees the fierce females teaming up to take down “Kill Bill” star Michael Madsen. Madsen isn't the only big-name guest star they brought on. “Black Widow,” which has swords, »

The use of a Steadicam took filmmaking to a new level. It has become quite an effective tool for filmmakers in helping tell their stories. Refocused Media created a fantastic video supercut featuring some of the best Steadicam tracking shots ever put on film and TV. It's called "The Art of Steadicam," and here's the note that came along with it:
These sequences are accomplished using a Steadicam, which is essentially a balanced stabilizer that allows for smoother and more easily controlled handheld camera operation. Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70?s, the steadicam shot — or ‘steadishot’ — has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker’s storytelling arsenal. I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of “top” clips over at steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. »

Iggy Azalea today (Aug. 13). released her big production video for “Black Widow,” featuring UK Singer Rita Ora, and it pretty much follows the script of earlier reports. Its a take off on Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” movies. The opening scene is set in a diner with Iggy working behind the counter and Rita on the arm of actor Michael Madsen. He’s a loud-mouthed gangster type, more or less reprising his role as Budd, aka Sidewinder from the movie. Bud is a former Deadly Viper Assassin. He is targeted to die by the Bride, played by Uma Thurman, as part of her revenge killing spree. ...Read More »
The clip has racked up nearly 205 million YouTube views and earned Iggy four Video Music Awards nominations (she's also nominated for assisting on Ariana Grande's "Problem").

Now the 24-year-old is drawing inspiration from another iconic film for her "Black Widow" video, featuring Rita Ora.
The rapper unveiled her undeniably Kill Bill-esque video on Tuesday, co-starring Michael Madsen in a very "Michael Madsen" role and Ora as his lady love-turned-black widow. Azalea's mentor T.I. also makes an appearance -- watch below!
