Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 marks the fourth collaboration between actor Michael Rooker and director James Gunn – and so when we sat down with the former, who reprises his role as Yondu in this eagerly anticipated sequel, we asked him about his time spent with one of the most promising filmmakers in the galaxy.
This sequels presents something of a more textured, character-driven endeavour, and Yondu’s journey is emblematic of this fact. Rooker explained to us about how great it is having such a nuanced character to work with, and whether he found it difficult at all connecting on such terms when in such an epic environment.
He also speaks about the make-up (he had to turn blue every single day) and the importance of the soundtrack – explaining that Gunn would allow the actors to listen to the tracks while shooting. He also speaks about »

One of the shows that would most largely be affected by the looming writer’s strike is The Walking Dead. However, that didn’t stop Norman Reedus from taking a pseudo selfie of Melissa McBride. It would appear that the cast and crew have taken over Georgia to potentially beginning shooting the “All out War” season 8 of the AMC hit show. Reedus shared a photo of himself with Melissa McBride on set of the AMC series. The photo, embedded below, is likely from production of the Season 7 finale, seeing as Gale Anne Hurd’s Twitter indicates that the group was only just getting

As we approached the recent season 7 finale of The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes made it very clear that he was willing to do anything it takes to keep his community alive and free from tyranny – even if that means they continue to thrive without him around to lead. Couple that with the fact that creator Robert Kirkman has hinted in the past (well, more flat-out stated) that Rick won’t last until the end of the comic book run, and there’s been plenty of speculation that the show will follow suit, but could we see it happen as soon as the next season?
During a recent interview, showrunner Scott Gimple was asked this very question, and though he obviously didn’t confirm or deny anything, he did seem to suggest that Rick’s demise is a very real possibility:

The big news in Hollywood today is the impending writer’s strike. There’s an increasing possibility that the WGA is going to strike when the deadline to cut deal with movie and TV networks expires. At first it was thought the chance of a strike was around 50/50 but it’s more like 75/25 right now. What does this mean? It means that some of your favorite shows might go on hiatus pretty soon. While many shows are already written through the end of the season, there are some shows like The Walking Dead that could be badly affected by the strike.

I’d complained previously about how far Telltale Games had gotten away from its adventure game roots during The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, as it really stuck out in the previous episode Above the Law. That’s why I was thrilled to see that the fourth instalment, Thicker Than Water, starts out with Javier once again stuck inside a jail cell. This time, I had to actually walk around, examine objects and figure out a way to escape entrapment.
The scene didn’t flex my wit, as I simply had to pick up a stool and walk over to the window, but it was refreshing to be able to finally explore at my own pace again. Thankfully, this isn’t just a one-off, as there are actually three scenes in Thicker Than Water that give agency back over to the player. There’s still plenty of quick time »

Members of the Writers Guild of America have voted to authorise a strike with 95% support.
There hasn’t been a writers strike since back in 2007 which lasted for 100 days. That strike affected many properties and caused many a hit show to stumble and ultimately never recover.
The dispute is between the writers and production companies, and results of the vote to authorise the strike came a day ahead of resumption of contract negotiations of a master contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
If the strike goes into action work stoppage could occur as soon as May 2nd which is when the current contract expires.
The guild is asking for a raise in script fees to counter balance the changing landscape of television such as the trend towards seasons with fewer episodes. It also wants parity for writers working on VOD services which currently are being paid »

The beautifully filmed martial arts drama has just been renewed for a super-sized third season.
While Into the Badlands Season 1 consisted of six episodes and Into the Badlands Season 2 is currently at 10, Into the Badlands Season 3 will have a whopping 16 episodes for your exhaustion and enjoyment!
The series, which stars Daniel Wu, will return in 2018.
This renewal is quite a change from the second season renewal. Season 2 is currently airing.
Season 1 initially aired in 2015 and viewers had to wait until well into 2016 to get news of a renewal.
This could have something to do with the ratings. It's averaging 3.6 million total viewers and a 2.1 share of viewers 21-54 after three days of time-shifted viewing.

The coveted roles of The Punisher and the new, still-friendly Spider-Man went to Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland, who costar in this year’s Pilgrimage. But that’s not just a fun (well, as fun as a post-Crusades movie can be) coincidence. The actors actually helped each other prep for their Marvel future while they were filming Brendan Muldowney’s Irish medieval thriller. Bernthal tells Variety that, though he stopped talking on set for a bit to get into character as a monk who takes a vow of silence, he and Holland ran lines together for their Frank Castle and Peter Parker auditions, respectively. The Walking Dead alum stayed off camera for Holland’s audition tape, but he was joined in his reel, which sounds like it was a doozy, by the Lost City Of Z star.

There are currently two major video game movies in production at the moment, with Alicia Vikander taking on the iconic Lara Croft in Tomb Raider and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson battling giant monsters in the adaptation of classic arcade game Rampage. While we’ve heard about the impressive cast the latter has amassed – including Academy award nominee Naomie Harris – details had been kept under wraps.
But a some new details have emerged from Splash Report, who have a pretty in-depth outline of the movie.
“The first privately owned space station is destroyed by a mysterious experiment done onboard. Three canisters from the crash land on Earth. One lands in the gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, the other in the plains of Wyoming and the last one in the Florida Everglades.

Jimmy has a fool for a client this week on Better Call Saul, as he looks to represent himself in court after his brotherly tiff with Chuck.
Following last week’s ambush, he calls into the office and tells Francesca to push back all his appointments — since, you know, he’s expecting to be arrested any minute. He sits on the curb outside Chuck’s house, despondent, and Chuck comes out to tell him he’s pressing charges against Jimmy for his own good: “You won’t want to hear it, »
With the exception of 2015, when the only high-profile creature feature to claw its way out of Hollywood arrived in the form of Krampus, over the past few years moviegoers have been treated to a fairly diverse melange of monster movies. From the fantastical Pacific Rim to Gareth Edwards’ dark, brooding Godzilla reboot, the silver screen has played host to an array of jaw-dropping creatures, and that trend continued just recently thanks to the launch of Kong: Skull Island.
Indeed, Legendary’s MonsterVerse is currently housing another two in-development creature features in Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2020’s Godzilla Vs. Kong – the event film to end all event films – but there’s another big-budget monster flick gestating in Hollywood, and its name is Rampage.
Loosely based on Midway’s iconic arcade title, New Line and Brad Peyton’s blockbuster just entered production last week ahead of its planned release in »

The success of “Mad Men,” and then “Breaking Bad,” helped make AMC a major destination for TV drama in a way that the basic cable network had never been before, and then they unexpectedly became the home of the biggest show on TV thanks to “The Walking Dead.” But their success outside those shows, or spin-offs like “Better Call Saul” and “Fear The Walking Dead,” has been mixed so far.
