This latest update of The Black Death will include the introduction of a new profession for players to try out – the Beggar. These players will have an improved resistance to the plague due to living in squalor and will have the ability to craft »

Mark Zuckerberg’s Social Media Accounts Hacked – and You’ll Never Guess What His Password Is

6 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even Mark Zuckerberg has fallen prey to a cardinal sin on the Internet: Using the same bad password for multiple accounts. Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts were compromised on Sunday by the hacker group OurMine, which has claimed responsibility for the breach. In a screengrab posted by Engadget, the group tweeted from Zuckerberg’s account that they were able to find his password — which they claim was “dadada” — because of the LinkedIn data breach in 2012.   The Facebook founder’s Pinterest profile had also been changed to say “Hacked by OurMine Team.” Also Read: Jack Black Death Hoax Tied to Twitter. »

Carice van Houten: ‘I feel like my back is straightening when I become Melisandre’

5 June 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Game of Thrones star on playing Nazi film director Leni Riefenstahl, getting into character and male nudity

Actor and singer Carice van Houten was born in the Netherlands in 1976. Acclaimed in her own country, where she has won a number of Golden Calf awards, she attracted international attention with her role in Paul Verhoeven’s 2006 film Black Book. Her English-language films include Valkyrie (2008), Repo Men and Black Death (both 2010). Since 2011, she has portrayed Melisandre in Game of Thrones. Now van Houten stars as Nazi film-maker and propagandist Leni Riefenstahl in a new film, Race, about African American athlete Jesse Owens and his impact on the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.

What kind of research did you do into Leni Riefenstahl?

I watched a lot of her films, footage, read a lot about her. The more I knew about her the more I wished we could make a whole movie about her alone. »

Interview: Legendary SFX Artist Mark Coulier Talks Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

31 May 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 1813, renowned writer Jane Austen published a book called Pride and Prejudice, which tells the story of the Bennet sisters, who are gussied up and married off to wealthy suitors, one by one. The only sister who seems to question this system is Elizabeth, the rebellious member of the family, who feels strong disdain for the system that treats her more like property than a proper citizen. In 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith put a new twist on the old tale by creating a parody novel called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which loosely follows the same basic outline, but adds an entirely different obstacle to the tale: the living dead.

In Grahame-Smith’s story, the girls are not only fighting for the right to be married into regal families, but also battling for their lives on a daily basis. An outbreak has occurred within these humble streets, and now flesh-eating zombies »

The Main Art Documents of the Year

Environment from the Zombie panel. It had been an eventful year for craft writing, with lots of shifts inside the scenery, as new journals popped (including this 1), or sprang up. or reinvented themselves. But beneath all the institutional shuffles, what were the tips that got people excited? I interviewed peers to attempt to answer that problem, but the remaining choice below is obviously a personal one. It displays the entire world and it is weighted towards parts that echo my own personal location and my own feeling of this yr’s struggling qualities. Regardless, listed here are a number of the pieces of publishing that I think are touchstones of 2014: Holland Cotter – Complex, New York Times. Jan 17, 2014 It;s somewhat crazy if you ask me that #039 Cotter&; s fretful, sweeping express -of-the-picture item is already per year old. But it stands here »

Berlin: Lionsgate U.K. Acquires British Rights for ‘Ghost Stories’

14 February 2016 10:14 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate U.K. has acquired U.K. distribution rights to “Ghost Stories,” based on the Olivier nominated supernatural stage production, co-written and directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, and set to star Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit” franchise, “Captain America: Civil War,” TV’s “Fargo”) and BAFTA award-winner George MacKay (“Pride,” “Sunshine on Leith”), with Andy Nyman reprising his role as Professor Goodman. Principal photography will start in September.

Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology and arch-sceptic has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the “original” TV parapsychologist, went missing 15 years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet.

Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three unsolved cases that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, »

Sundance Horror Film ‘The Eyes of My Mother’ Sells to Magnet Releasing (Exclusive)

12 February 2016 1:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magnet Releasing, the genre division of Magnolia Pictures, has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the Sundance horror thriller “The Eyes of My Mother,” Variety has learned.

There were several bids on the table for the buzzy project by first-time filmmaker Nicolas Pesce, which was shot in black and white. The movie will receive a theatrical debut later this year.

The Eyes of My Mother,” which premiered in the “Next” section at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, follows a woman (Kika Magalhaes) who lives in an abandoned farmhouse. Although the eerie, gory story caused some festival goers at Sundance to flee the theater, many appreciated the film’s subtle take on the horror thriller genre reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock meets Roald Dahl meets the “Saw” franchise.

Nicolas Pesce has crafted an auspicious and unforgettable debut that immediately establishes him as one of the most exciting genre filmmakers to watch today, »

A ‘Ghost Stories’ Film Is On The Way From Andy Nyman

2 February 2016 2:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ghost Stories film: A feature film version of Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s hit stage show is being planned. Martin Freeman and George MacKay will star.

I remember catching the stage show Ghost Stories at the Lyric in Hammersmith many years ago, before its successful couple of runs in the West End, and couldn’t believe how amazing it was – and how scary. Well, now it seems like a Ghost Stories film is on the way courtesy of Andy Nyman, the genius that co-created the original play.

Nyman, an accomplished actor (he appeared in Severance, Black Death and Death At A Funeral), and frequent collaborator with TV mentalist Derren Brown, will direct and reprise his role of Professor Phillip Goodman from the original play, a character described as ‘a psychology academic and skeptic who sees his belief in the rational tested when his old mentor, Charles Cameron, sends him a letter. »
