They wait in the darkness for the next group, their eyes searching from sunken sockets. One day, animatronic zombies could give tourists their own ghoulish greetings in "Battle for Survival", The Walking Dead theme park ride that's currently being teased at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (Iaapa) gathering in Orlando, Florida.
Via Chandler Desrochers, /Film recently reported that the Sally Corporation is developing The Walking Dead: Battle For Survival theme park ride. Described as "a very Dark ride", this official Walking Dead experience is now being pitched to potential buyers at the Iaapa Expo 2015.

Thus far the pictures in this years 8 Films to Die For look mighty promising. Suspension may actually have the most potential. Weve got a new killer on deck and he looks pretty bad ass (and a little similar to the antagonist in Dark Ride) factor in a cool comic angle and an examination of teenage life and what youre faced with is a piece of work that has all the potential to be genius. Of course well have to wait to find out whether the flick can live up to its promise as these movies wont be headed our way until the Halloween season arrives. »
The King is dead. Long live the King.
I couldn’t help it: I thought of Elvis.
It’s not the first time when reading The Sandman that Elvis came to mind, but it was the most instinctive and in some ways the least appropriate such moment. We’re at the end of the wake for Morpheus and Matthew says to the new Dream, “Just remember what the French say. No, probably not the French, they’ve got a president or something. The Brits, maybe. Or the Swedes. You know the one I mean?” Dream does not. Matthew says, “The King is dead. Long live the King.”
And my free-associating brain did its annoying thing of sending out random names and words: “Elvis!” it screamed into my consciousness.
Not quite a random name, of course. Elvis was, after all, called The King. I don’t really care about Elvis, though. »

And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.
You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.
