I had a hunch that Cooties (read here) and Adam Wingard’s The Guest (read here) might make it into what appears to be a line-up of eight (there might be some wiggle one for one last minute inclusion), but this year’s section flaunts a more international palate with the latest from Norway’s Tommy Wirkola (sequel to Dead Snow – which showed at the fest in 2009) reps Europe, Taika Waititi & Jemaine Clement return to the fest they broke out of with Eagle Vs. Shark but with a mockumentary (What We Do in the Shadows) that might compliment the inclusion of Jim Jarmusch’s latest. Oceania gets further representation with Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook and from Asia, the program assures some blood splatter with The Mo Brothers’ Killers. William Eubank arrives with a title that might sound familiar for those who hit the fest in 2007, but this version of »

Warner Bros has put the future of their DC franchise in the hands of screenwriter David Goyer, who not only penned Man of Steel but also is writing its sequel Batman vs. Superman and supposedly the eventual Justice League movie. But that's not all! Bleeding Cool reports Goyer is being given producing power at Warner Bros, which will bring forth a string of lower budget DC-inspired movies like an adaptation of the Suicide Squad books. While Suicide Squad has taken a couple of forms, it's expected the version getting the movie treatment will be the antihero one crewed by collared super villains like Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and King Shark. This seems a smart pick for a lower stakes $20-40 million superhero adventure as Harley alone has been a major fan favorite since her debut on Batman: The Animated Series back in the 1990s. For a rundown on how this kooky »
Black Friday earned its name for a reason. It is a dark time when shoppers go into beast mode and forget the warm feelings of family, friendship and gravy they experienced the day before. There's grabbing, snarling, waiting, pushing. None of that sounds fun to us - even if it's for an affordable flat-screen. To help you win the holidays this year and avoid getting into fisticuffs with local shoppers, we created a gift guide overflowing with unique, celebrity-inspired items you won't likely find at 4 a.m. at your town shopping center. Clear off your Black Friday shopping schedule and »

"The Neighbors" may be as far from reality as you can get, but that doesn't stop the comedy from having a crossover episode with "Shark Tank."
This Friday (Nov. 8) in "We Jumped the Shark (Tank)," Debbie Weaver (Jami Gertz), Larry Bird (Simon Templeman) and Jackie Joyner Kersee (Toks Olagundoye) will all face the scary reality waters of "Shark Tank" in an attempt to sell Debbie's brand-new invention.
It doesn't go well, as far as sales are concerned. In terms of comedy, however, this pitch is worth millions.
**Not just an ABC crossover, but also a pitch for the next Syfy original movie.
Dan Fogelman: Obviously, we work on the show, »
This show Helix is looking really, really promising. SciFiMafia.com attended a set tour and panel Q&A session last week in Montreal – more about that in the days to come – and this show could fill a real void in the science-fiction thriller arena. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) wasn’t at the panel session, but he did record this outline of the show which was released to attendees:

Check out the ass on that spider! Now that’s what I call big! (Spiders have asses, right?) Hey, fans of spiders — and especially you fans of really big ass spiders — check out the new trailer for director Mike Mendez’s “Big Ass Spider”. I think at one point someone wanted to call this movie “Mega Spider”. Which is dumb. Because, you know, obviously, “Big Ass Spider”. You can’t beat that, kids. It’s like “Ghost Tornadoes”. Or “Shark Hurricanes”. It just Is. The movie stars Greg Grunberg, who played Matt Parkman on “Heroes”, Fyi. Boy, I bet he could use Sylar’s help about now, huh? A giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampage the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to a team of scientists and one clever exterminator to kill the creature before the city is destroyed. »

Not too long ago, it was rumored that Amanda Waller would be popping up in the second season of "Arrow" as the leader of the A.R.G.U.S. organization. Now, thanks to Super Hero Hype, we know that she will indeed be in "Arrow" season two as portrayed by actress Cynthia Addai-Robinson.
Addai-Robinson, best known for her role as Naevia on "Spartacus," is a terrific choice, guaranteed to bring a fresh, new perspective to Waller's blunt force and brutal military tactics. Yes, there's a whole lot about Amanda Waller that we here at Splash Page cannot wait to see unfold on "Arrow." After all, she's just about as deceitful as she is deadly. Click past the jump to learn more about Amanda Waller!
Nicknamed "The Wall," Amanda Waller is the survivor of a terrible tragedy in which her son, her daughter and her husband were all murdered. »

When Fdr uttered the immortal line: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” he clearly had not tangled with a crocodile, stumbled upon a King Cobra, or swam with a Great White shark. Many horror films, if not all of them, take cues from the real world, from science, from nature, from the terror that exists on this planet that Mother Nature has created. What can we conclude? Mother Nature clearly hates the human race. How else can you explain vampire bats and piranhas? The world is full of deadly, horrifying creatures.
Many people are terrified of spiders, others of snakes (Indiana Jones is perhaps the most famous snake hater), and some can’t dip a toe into a pool because of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. There are those that are scared of everything, and lastly, there are the foolish few who say they fear nothing, but »

Grand Theft Auto V digital Playstation 3 pre-orders were made available for pre-load overnight throughout the UK. This has led fans to uncover mysterious info through searching of the game’s files. The most significant pieces of info to come out of this leak was the finding of information of a number of music stations and songs. The list below shows the traditional mix of Hip Hop, Rock and Country while including artists such as Snoop Dogg, Britney Spears and Muse.
Please take this information with a pinch of salt as the legitimacy of this information has yet to be clarified by Rockstar. Hopefully within the next few days more will be revealed. If true, what do you make of the soundtrack and which artists were you hoping would make an appearance?

The return of football put NBC on top in the young adults demo last week, ending Univision’s record-setting five-week run ahead of its English-speaking competitors.
CBS, meanwhile, continues to perform better than last summer as its strategy of adding original dramas to its slate has paid off. Fox, on the other hand, has aired more repeats than usual this summer and is down sharply as a result.
The Eye’s “Under the Dome” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” were the frame’s top series in key demos — but they paled in comparison to the NFL’s annual Hall of Fame Game, which signals the start of preseason action. Sunday’s game between Miami and Dallas, broadcast by NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” crew, averaged a big 3.8 rating/11 share in adults 18-49 while drawing 10.11 million viewers overall — the highest demo rating for any NFL preseason telecast in three years. »

Although I was introduced to Adam Glass through his fearless handling of Harley Quinn and King Shark in Suicide Squad, many know him for Supernatural episodes, like the recent “As Time Goes By”—widely seen as a new beginning for the still-popular television series. At the DC booth over Comic-Con weekend, Glass could hardly be found without two men by his side: Robbie Thompson, fellow writer for Supernatural, and Aidan, Glass’s enthusiastic son.|
Famous Monsters. I’m going to ask the predictable question first. Having written in both mediums, how does writing for comics differ from writing for television, and do you prefer one over the other?
Adam Glass. I think telling a good story is all that matters. The only difference is in the pacing. In some ways, comics and TV are very similar because you’re telling the story in a certain amount of time. An issue is like an episode. »

Anghus Houvouras on the best comic books of the year so far....
Hard to believe, but the year is half over. So far it's been a great year for comics. Sure, there have been some disappointments. I'm looking at you Age of Ultron. For the avid comic reader, there are great titles to be found.
The mainstream publishers have benefited greatly from recent reorganizations. While not everybody has been in love with DC's New 52, their characters have felt more energized than they have in ages. And the Marvel Now! retooling has been a creative home run delivering some of the most consistently excellent titles hitting the shelves each month. The smaller publishers haven't been slouching either putting out a run of offbeat and unique titles that are rivaling the best runs of the independent era of comics. So here, in no particular order, the ten best comics of the first half of the year. »

“I don’t like change,” Peggy declares at one point in this week’s Mad Men. “I just want everything back the way it was.” Too bad, Peg, because your entire world is about to shift in seismic fashion. After a very methodical start to the season, the AMC drama ramped up, big time, with the packed “For Immediate Release.” Let’s take a good look at what went down.

Greetings from the apocalypse! This was a scary-ass week for my homies in Boston. Why we gotta blow each other up, people? If we keep exploding ourselves all we'll wind up with is Charlton Heston screaming at the Statue of Liberty. Truth. Love, peace and chicken grease, y'all. Now, movies …

When Scarface said, "The World is Yours," there should have been an asterisk that read "*As long as you're not a complete knucklehead." That's the heavy-duty lesson Mark Wahlberg, The Rock and Anthony Mackie learn as a trio of gym rats-cum-criminals in "Pain & Gain," the latest filmsplosion from the Michael Bay ejaculatory system.
