Limited to a run of 3000, the “Hershel’s Farm” set includes four different Minimates based on that story arc from Robert Kirkman's comic.

The figures are 2 inches tall each, with a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, and come in a blister-card package. Diamond Select Toys will be selling the sets from booth 2607 at Comic-Con, which runs from July 18th through the 21st at the San Diego Convention Center. »

Anchor Bay has sent us an exclusive poster and clip for the upcoming comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles. Directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), the film is three short stories connected by items from a Southern small-town pawn shop. The twisted tales involve "a man searching for his kidnapped wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads, and a sad-sack Elvis impersonator." It sounds like the fun insanity that permeated Kramer's underseen 2006 film Running Scared. This clip doesn't show any of that movie's electric cinematography and pacing, but that doesn't mean those aspects will be absent from the rest of the picture. As you can see from the trailer, the potential is certainly there. Hit the jump to check out the exclusive poster and clip. The film stars Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Vincent D'Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Norman Reedus, Chi McBride, Matt Dillon, and Paul Walker. Pawn Shop Chronicles opens in »

Given Stephen King's status as one of the best-selling authors of all time, it's surprising that his work hasn't been more successful on screens large and small. There have been well-regarded film adaptations such as "Stand By Me," "Misery," "Carrie" and "The Shawshank Redemption," of course, but quite a few movie misfires as well. On the small screen, crowd-pleasing adaptations of King's work have been even more rare, which is especially odd, given TV's current obsession with dark themes and edgy, blood-spattered fare.
Of course, there's much more to King than horror, and one of his late-period novels, "Under the Dome," is as much a political allegory and an environmental call to arms as it is a tale of small-town survival. The premise is right there in the title: One day, a town is encased in an impenetrable dome that appears out of nowhere. No one knows why it's there, »

Another set of The Walking Dead Minimates is on its way from Diamond Select this summer, but there's a catch: The assortment, known as "Hershel's Farm," is a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive.
At Comic-Con International in 2012, Diamond Select Toys released the first two-pack from their line of The Walking Dead Minimates, based on the best-selling Skybound comic book by Robert Kirkman.

Now, with the third full series of The Walking Dead Minimates in stores, Dst and Skybound are proud to announce a new exclusive four-pack for this year's Comic-Con!
This year's Comic-Con exclusive Walking Dead Minimates box set is titled Hershel's Farm, and it includes four different Minimates based on the famous farmhouse story arc.

Potential Spoilers Below When it comes to the entirety of “The Walking Dead” Season 3, I’m a bit on the fence. There were some really good episodes sprinkled throughout the too-long season (really, this show should only be 10 episodes a year, 16 episodes was just way too long and worse, it felt unnecessarily long), but most of it was just filler waiting for a rather anti-climatic climax (in my very humble opinion). But of course, the one thing “The Walking Dead” Season 3 might be known for going forward was the devolution of Andrea (played by Laurie Holden) as a character. She went from being a yuppie to a sharpshooter to a take-charge survivor to, well, an intelligence-challenged … something. Sure, there are some attempts to justify her ridiculous decisions throughout the season, but ultimately her character felt written into a corner and the only way out of that was … death, as it turns out. »

The creative minds behind "The Walking Dead" have shown time and again that they're happy to deviate from the comic book source material, especially where prominent deaths are concerned. Shane stuck around longer on the show, Dale had a much earlier exit … and yet another fan-favorite character from the comics bit the dust much sooner than expected during the season three finale.
It was a death that some die-hard "Walking Dead" fans weren't exactly pleased about. Season three's showrunner Glen Mazzara opened up about the development in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, defending the choice to kill the character off.
Spoilers after the break.
According to Mazzara, the decision to kill Andrea was made over the course of season three's development. He said that someone had to make "an ultimate sacrifice" for the season to have a proper impact.

In today’s ‘ugh’ news, TMZ says that Charlie Sheen is trying to get the faboo Selma Blair fired from their sitcom Anger Management after Blair complained about her co-star being late. Remember how Sheen was on his best behavior when he was trying to sell the show to a network? That’s over now.
Like I needed more reason to be looking forward to the return of New Girl.

While only a few of us (or is it just me?) dread The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set for release on May 2, 2014, Sony is moving forward on a third and fourth film, scheduling June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018 for those films. Sony Pictures’ Chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Jeff Blake, said in a press release, “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.” Yeah, sure. Whatever.
The Canadian based Sci-fi series Continuum, which is near completion of its second season up north, and just starting here on the SyFy Channel, has been picked up for a third season there. It’s a fairly good bet that Syfy will probably air season three sometime in 2014.

It's Monday again, which means we have a new "Dispatch" from the set of "The Walking Dead," and this week we hear from production designer Grace Walker, who talks about cleaning up the prison for Season 4 and the secret to making it look like the world has ended.
Q: What projects have you been working on for the new season?
A: We're trying to form better conditions for the survivors at the prison. We figured because we had a lot more people coming in -- like the people coming from Woodbury -- that the cellblocks were starting to overflow, so we made more room for them. We had to have better shelter and conditions where they can now eat outside.
Q: Last season which episodes were more difficult for you: those that took place at Woodbury or the prison?
A: I think we learned a lot with the Woodbury stuff. »

While season three of AMC's monster hit The Walking Dead started silently, it ended with a literal bang, culminating with the death of a beloved character in both the TV and comic series on which it's based. Opening the year with a time jump and skipping over winter after Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) group was displaced from Hershel's farm, Glen Mazzara set out to do something different in the first minutes of the season. The first five minutes of the zombie drama's return was free of dialogue -- a scene the now former showrunner had been kicking around for some time. Part
