Sasha's headed for motherhood! Sonequa Martin-Green is pregnant and expecting her first child with actor husband Kenric Green, her rep confirms to Us Weekly. "Kenric and I are beyond excited," the Walking Dead actress tells Us in a statement. "There's nothing like running around fighting zombies in the Georgia heat to stay in shape while pregnant." Martin-Green, 29, is due in January and is having a little boy. The parents-to-be first met in 2009. Martin-Green currently plays Sasha on the AMC smash hit The Walking Dead and has previously [...] »
Michonne looks like a badass. And a good part of that badassery is due to her hair — those flowing dreadlocks that whip around as she is slicing and dicing zombies left and right. But it’s not real. I’m not talking about the zombies — which are, of course, totally 100% real — but rather the hair. It’s actually a wig worn by actress Dania Gurira to achieve maximum Michonne.
We asked Gurira what she loves and hates the most about the wig, and you can now see her full response in the video player below. On the positive side, Gurira »

Bringing together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror, Halloween Horror Nights, held at Universal Studios Hollywood on select nights from September 19th through November 2nd, has become one of the most popular ways to celebrate Halloween and all things scary. Featuring an all-new slate of seven film production quality mazes (The Walking Dead, Alien vs. Predator, From Dusk Till Dawn, An American Werewolf in London, Syfy’s Face Off, Dracula Untold and Clowns 3D with music by Slash), five frightful scare zones (The Purge: Anarchy, The Walking Dead, Mask-a-Raid, Dark Christmas and Skullz) and the fully re-imagined Terror Tram: Invaded by The Walking Dead experience, it will be more chilling, more terrorizing and more extreme than ever. Collider was recently given the opportunity to tour the From Dusk Till Dawn maze, which brings many of the shows key visual moments to life. »

In a big week for new releases, five newcomers made it into the top 10 on Nielsen VideoScan’s weekly overall disc sales chart for the week ending Sept. 14.
Walt Disney Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the action sequel that grossed nearly $260 million in U.S. theaters, was an easy winner, debuting at No. 1.
Twentieth Century Fox’s “Brick Mansions,” a crime drama with a domestic box office gross of just $20.4 million, bowed at No. 2, although it only sold about 8.2% as many units as the “Captain America” followup.
Rounding out the top five was another newcomer, “Supernatural: The Complete Ninth Season,” from Warner Bros.
The two other new releases that made it into the top 10 on the First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, »

Contrary to what broadcast television’s fall schedules might suggest, the revamped trend of using comicbooks as source material for TV shows has been hot for a while — even if the brains behind the networks’ programming slates have a hard time remembering that.
“It’s funny — if you talk to the people at the networks, they constantly forget that ‘The Walking Dead’ is based on a comicbook,” David Goyer, exec producer of NBC’s upcoming “Constantine” says of the hit AMC series. “I mean, constantly. ‘The Walking Dead’ is the most successful show on television, bar network, bar anything. That’s a massive statement.”
That’s because the highly rated zombie apocalypse drama, which is an adaptation of scribe Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics series, doesn’t feel like it came from a one-dimensional medium, argues comicbook author and “Batman: The Animated Series” alum Joe Lansdale — at least not in the stereotypical sense. »

Forget kryptonite. The real killer for the superhero TV genre might be oversaturation.
Geoff Johns, Cco of DC Entertainment, is aware of this risk and is battling it through a diversification plan. This fall, the Warner Bros.-backed company will have four shows on three networks. It also has a fifth, the quirky, femme-skewing “iZombie,” in the warmer for the midseason on the CW.
“We’re creating this DC Universe world and introducing these DC heroes that we haven’t even gotten to talk about yet,” Johns says. “If you look at the shows we’re developing this season with Warner Brothers and all the networks, you can see they are all very different… Diversity in the properties and the tones and the shows is really important because there’s a huge audience out there and we want to have stuff for everybody. That goes from film to comics to games to TV shows. »

Every summer tells the same story: superheroes reign supreme at the global box office, with studios churning out sequel after reboot after prequel to capitalize on pop culture’s hottest trend. This year’s undisputed champion is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has raked in over $300 million domestically to date.
But while Marvel continues to dominate the big screen, rival publisher DC Comics is poised for a small screen coup. This fall, DC and Warner Bros. Television have three hotly anticipated comicbook properties slated to hit the air: the CW’s “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash”; NBC’s darker “Constantine” and Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham,” with CW procedural “iZombie” on deck for midseason. Looking ahead to next season, TNT is also nearing a pilot production order for “Titans,” a one-hour drama that will focus on DC’s younger heroes, while Fox just gave a put pilot production »

It's that time of year again when Shock Till You Drop gets to visit Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights for a sneak peek at what they have in store. This year, as with previous, we got to tour two of the mazes in detail. We have a look at the latest The Walking Dead maze as well as an all new, original maze entitled Clowns 3D with music by Slash.
Our first stop took us to a twisted clown with rolling eyes and a mouth as a doorway. This was the entrance for "Clowns 3D". Halloween Horror Night mastermind John Murdy met up with us there and showed us a hint of what we would be in for. The story is twisted. There was this ice cream emporium that had a funhouse, but as time went on, people stopped coming, they don't like clowns anymore. So the owners have »

Easily the most anticipated new show of the season is Gotham, and if you weren’t able to attend the premiere party, here’s the next best thing.
It was clearly quite the party, and even if you aren’t among the hopefuls looking for this to become your next favorite show, it’s a series that absolutely has to be watched… for a while at least. Just based on the cast and crew, and any connection to Batman, you have to check out what they do with this thing. And, I have to say, Donal Logue. The End.
And again, even if you aren’t already sold, there’s something interesting about the idea of expanding on the early years, beyond just the flashback that sets Bruce Wayne in motion.
Well, you may as well check out what went on, and get all the more excited for next week’s premiere of the show. »

Daily Dead was recently invited to an intimate, behind-the-scenes tour for two of the highly anticipated upcoming mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights- Clowns 3D and The Walking Dead- which was led by John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights.
Both Clowns 3D and The Walking Dead mazes were still being propped and dressed by Murdy’s tireless crew at the time of our sneak peek, but enough components were in place to give us an idea of the mayhem that Halloween Horror Nights has in store for its victims once it opens its doors on September 19th.
When we arrived at Clowns 3D, Murdy discussed how iconic rock guitarist Slash became involved with the maze, lending his musical talents in order to create the overtly creepy score for their upcoming haunt. “I didn’t have an obvious »

Coming alive Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c (as part of the cabler’s annual 31 Days of Halloween event), Town of the Living Dead follows the “colorful” residents of Jasper as they battle every imaginable obstacle to complete production on a zombie movie, Thr33 Days Dead, that thus far has been six years in the making. »
No doubt about it: Rick Grimes has been in some hairy situations on The Walking Dead. And none have been hairier than that thing currently growing on his face. Some manly stubble has given way to a full-on assault of whiskers. Which I suppose is appropriate, this being the zombie apocalypse and all. After all, one has to assume the Gillette factory to be something less than fully operational these days.
But how does the man who plays Grimes, Andrew Lincoln, feel about the beard? Because we leave absolutely no stone —nor razor — uncovered here in our Walking Dead coverage, »

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.
Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »
Director Gareth Edwards and Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull describe the process of creating the M.U.T.O. kaiju in Godzilla in this snippet from "Ancient Enemy: The M.U.T.O.s" extra feature. Godzilla is out on dvd and blu-ray this today. [via IGN] Here's a behind-the-scenes look at composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) working on NBC's Constantine. It's nice to see that the lovely Candice Patton is up late, doing her homework. She's going to make a great Iris West this Fall on The CW's Flash. Should be sleeping but ughhh... The New 52 Vol 4.

(Cbr) AMC’s hit adaptation of "The Walking Dead" differs in numerous ways from the source material, but perhaps most significantly in introduction of Daryl Dixon, the fan-favorite character played by Norman Reedus. “Fan-favorite” is a term frequently overused, but here it’s entirely appropriate, as Daryl devotees are legion, dedicated and, it turns out, fairly artistic. And now Reedus is collecting more than 100 pieces of that fan work — drawings, sketches, tattoos, mosaics, etc. — in a book titled "Thanks For All the Niceness," to be published Oct. 31 by his imprint Big Bald Book. A “significant portion” of the proceeds will be donated to The Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson Foundation. Described as the actor’s “way to show his gratitude” for his “insanely devoted fandom,” the collection was chosen from more than 3,000 submissions, in every imaginable medium, from around the globe. “I want to thank everyone who submitted artwork,” Reedus said in a statement. »
