Gale Ann Hurd rose to the pinnacle of Hollywood by producing some of the biggest and brashest films in history, none more so than “The Terminator,” directed by her then-husband James Cameron. Yet when thinking about the current state of the movie business, Hurd referenced another of Cameron's movies – “Titanic.” “They can see the iceberg coming,” Hurd told TheWrap at Comic-Con. Hurd is no longer on the ship. She has moved on to television, producing “The Walking Dead,” the highest-rated cable show in America. She will have no involvement in the upcoming reboot of “The Terminator,” nor does she seem. »

(Cbr) At Comic-Con International, Skybound Entertainment premiered the teaser trailer for the Robert Kirkman-produced sci-fi thriller Air. Directed by Christian Cantamessa from a script he wrote with Chris Pasetto, the film is set in an underground facility that houses cryogenically frozen people who are intended to re-establish society after nuclear fallout renders Earth’s atmosphere unbreathable. Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) star as custodial workers who struggle to hold on to their sanity — and their lives — as they maintain the last livable place on the planet. “The film is full of hope,” Cantamessa said during Skybound’s Comic-Con panel. “It’s just my way to kind of give hope that there is a future, and the best way to experience it is maybe seeing the other side first, and then you can appreciate what you’ve got,” the director said. “I think »

Earlier this year, a Vancouver location was turned into a top secret set. Security was so tight that at any given time there were a handful of personnel guarding the stars and producers. You'd think Tom Cruise was on set but instead, it was Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou. The movie they were shooting? Air.
Though it sounds like a bunch of other movies we've seen before, much of the recent buzz around Air comes from the fact that the movie is being produced by "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman. Big name alert...I guess.
The teaser isn't exactly earth shattering but it sets up an interesting premise: Reedus and Hounsou are custodial workers whose job is to maintain the equipment that keeps the underground bunker that houses the remnants of humanity.

Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, Into The Storm throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

Fans of "The Walking Dead" no doubt sensed a bit of sexual tension mounting between Daryl and Beth in the latter half of the show's fourth season, where the pair were stranded alone together, and began to to form an intense bond. But is there really a chance for romance for the pair?
Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, shared his thoughts with Cinema Blend during an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, noting that Beth offered Daryl, who had already suffered plenty throughout the series's run, a bit of hope.
"Beth was kind of like this long dark tunnel. She was kind of like this little flame at the end of it," Reedus told the site. "[Daryl] got closer and closer to that flame and thought maybe he could see something and maybe there would be light and it's getting warmer and warmer... and then someone blew it out."
That latter statement »

On the “Zero Day” of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Image held a mini-Expo and announced a dozen new titles from creators, both popular or relatively unknown , including some new to writing or drawing for Image. These comics show that Image is the place where creators can roam free and write and draw crazy and interesting stories in a variety of genres. This freedom paid off big time as Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ sci-fi love story Saga continued to dominate the Eisner Awards. Part of Image’s commercial success is due to Robert Kirkman, especially The Walking Dead and the popular AMC television series it spawned. San Diego Comic Con showed that his comics have cross-media potential even before the first trade of a comic he is writing comes out.

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.
Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of the gangster »

Every morning they shamble to the shop, hungry for more. Residents of Spokane, Washington who feel like zombies upon waking up can go to Dawn of the Donut to get the nourishment to feel human again. With a name inspired by Dawn of the Dead, George A. Romero’s classic horror film, Dawn of the Donut offers zombie fans a menu of morning pastries that pay tribute to the creators, actors, and characters of popular films and television shows that feature the living dead.
Prior to opening its doors nearly one year ago, the folks at Dawn of the Donut hung a sheet over their windows that read “Zombies Inside Keep Out!” The unique marketing approach piqued the interest of the community and made Dawn of the Donut a big hit upon commencing business. Now it’s still going strong, as customers continue to order and eat the store’s »

It is usually a bad sign when a network cancels a pilot screening near the last minute. If you read the Comic-Con schedule, you would have thought that the first episode of iZombie screened twice. It didn’t, but the extended first look and the producers’ explanation soothed my qualms. Apparently they're recasting a few roles and doing some reshoots, and they aren’t showing the pilot anywhere until that is done, but what we did see of the show was pretty fantastic. Not being recast were series stars Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, and David Anders, along with executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, who were all on hand to talk about the show and take audience questions. Who is getting fired? They didn’t say, but on Veronica Mars, Thomas recast the dog after the pilot, so maybe history is repeating itself.

In May, it was made public that Seth Gilliam ("The Wire") had been added to the cast of AMC's "The Walking Dead," joining other "The Wire" alumni, Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese) and Lawrence Gilliard Jr (who plays Bob).. At the time, there was no word on what character Gilliam will play exactly, leaving us all to speculate on just what this mystery role might be. Speculate no more because, over the weekend, during the series' Comic-Con panel in San Diego, show creator Robert Kirkman revealed that Gilliam will play Father Gabriel in Season 5 of "The Walking Dead."

Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »
