Every year like clockwork, October brings us three things: gorgeous leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and “The Walking Dead.” This Sunday — October 11th — we’ll rejoin the group and the residents of Alexandria as they try to forge a new way forward together. It took five seasons, but Rick Grimes and the gang finally found a refuge that wasn’t overrun with walkers or full of dystopian governors and/or cannibals. But while everyone in the group finally shook loose their paranoia long enough to realize Alexandria wasn’t a trap, a new problem arose to fill the void: the people living inside this relative safety were clueless and vulnerable. With the walker problem getting more persistent and the wolves soon to be sniffing around their door, “The Walking Dead” appeared to be setting up our heroes to be the protectors of this miraculous haven of civilization. But first they have »

With season six of The Walking Dead premiering this Sunday, Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced they will release Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and DVD on December 1st.
Created by Robert Kirkman the guys behind the mega hit series The Walking Dead and Dave Erickson (“Sons of Anarchy”), the series premiered in August as the #1 show in cable history. Not too shabby. While critical opinion was mixed, it was still a huge hit for the new network.
Before you buy though, Anchor Bay have confirmed that a Special Edition release will come in 2016.
From the release:
The world is ruled by women when all male mammals (all but two) die suddenly. A group of teens discover their parents are part of an evil crime organization. War-torn Iraq is seen through the eyes of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo. These are just some of the tales spun by Brian K. Vaughan, one of the most compelling, creative, thought-provoking writers in comic books today. Issue #4 of Vaughan’s “We Stand On Guard” hits comic book store shelves today. The mini-series imagines a war between the U.S. and Canada about a century into the future. It centers on 18-year-old Canadian Amber, who’s survived on the run for 12 years when her older brother is captured by the American army. The series will run for a total of six issues, though Vaughan told HitFix that he and artist Steve Skroce “are already talking about what we’re gonna work on next. »

It’s been more than a decade since Danny Boyle’s Rage virus decimated the streets of London and its surrounding boroughs, but it seems as though the acclaimed filmmaker is keen to return to the horror film series he helped birth back in 2002 with 28 Days Later. Following a less-than-stellar sequel that he didn’t direct – that responsibility fell to Juan Carlos Fresnadillo – the franchise is quietly making a comeback via the long-gestating third installment, 28 Months Later, which Boyle is open to directing.
There is one caveat to that reunion, though; as detailed in his interview with The Playlist, the Steve Jobs helmer noted that he would only sign on for the follow-up if he resonated with the script.
“I’ve got no problem [with that],” he said. “It’s the usual thing: is it’s not about whether people think it’s a good idea that you’re directing. It’s »

Much like, say, Game of Thrones, AMC and the creative team implemented various changes in the transition from one medium to another when adapting Robert Kirkman’s comic juggernaut, The Walking Dead. Without straying too far into spoiler territory, arguably one of the more prominent plotlines that was subject to the editing scissors revolved around one Rick Grimes; though if Andrew Lincoln had his way, the network’s interpretation would have remained true to the source material.
We’re referring to Rick’s lost hand, of course. Upon his encounter with the Governor – portrayed by David Morrissey in AMC’s series – the weathered survivor is tortured by the demented leader, culminating in him cutting off Rick’s hand. Initially, though, Lincoln petitioned for the show’s writing team to incorporate the defining encounter into season 3, though the financial reality of rendering a stump for The Walking Dead‘s lead character was simply asking too much. »

It ain’t over until the fat walker groans, but the end of the world is swiftly coming into full view. The difference from the very first to the latest episode of The Walking Dead is immense, and as the world tears itself apart, the challenges are only going to get tougher for Rick and the survivors.
One of the most intriguing aspects to the entire show is that there’s no real idea how the show will come to a definitive conclusion. While the comic book series does stretch into the future, there’s still no end-game, no conclusion, and limitless opportunities left to explore.
But what can fans actually expect? Sift through the thousands of ideas and you’ll uncover theories hinting at inter-galactic warfare, biblical prophecy coming to life, and a master-race of evolved, civilised zombies. If creator Robert Kirkman opts for any of them, he’ll obliterate the internet. »

Warning: The following contains spoilers from Tuesday’s iZombie Season 2 premiere.
No wonder iZombie executive producer Rob Thomas has been keeping mum about Major’s arc in Season 2!
At the close of the CW series’ sophomore opener on Tuesday night, Liv’s ex-fiancé was blackmailed by Max Rager into agreeing to kill off all of Seattle’s zombies. In return, Major’s pretty, undead ex stays unharmed. (Oh, and thanks to the cure’s side effects, Major can now sense when somebody is a zombie. Helpful!)
Fear The Walking Dead wrapped up season one on Sunday night. Fans of this series do not need to worry about the series being cancelled. AMC locked up a second season for the series before it even premiered. Fans will see more of Travis, played by Cliff Curtis, and his family on AMC.
Season one of Fear The Walking Dead did receive a lot of criticism. Fans were not loving the slow pace of the series. This is a departure from The Walking Dead, which is fast paced each and every week. That series will return to AMC with season six on Sunday night.
Dave Erickson tackled the criticism and teased season two of the series in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"We'll pick up in a more accelerated pace when we go in to the season. We've learned »

Oli Davis reviews the sixth and final episode of Fear the Walking Dead Season One…
The Good Man.
Directed by Stefan Schwartz.
Nice night for a stroll…
There’s that dog again, in the street. It’s a persisting metaphor in Fear the Walking Dead – one symbolic of the characters slowly being backed into a corner, more animal than man, ready to lash out for survival.
The dog is the neighbour’s. Maddie (Kim Dickens) doesn’t tell them about the impending Operation Colbalt, where all civilians are about to be abandoned by the evacuating army. It’s that ‘us or them’ mentality the dog represents. “They didn’t do anything for us,” Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) reminds Maddie. It’s barely been a fortnight since the lights went out, and already a neighbour is too distant.
Those are the best moments of The Walking Dead »

Last summer, we reported that filmmaker Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go) is directing The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to the 1980 horror classic The Shining. Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead) signed on to write the screenplay back in April 2013, which is set several years before the events portrayed in The Shining. While promoting his directorial debut Truth, James Vanderbilt, who is producing The Overlook Hotel, revealed that they have a unique take on the story which will stand on its own.
"You want a real filmmaker like Mark doing it. Honestly I think people will really be excited about it, because it's not like '20 Years Before The Shining!' I don't want to give too much away about the story but the way Glen (Mazzara) cracked it and the way Mark (Romanek) has sort of cracked it, it's completely it's own film, which I think is super smart. »
The Walking Dead season 6 is just around the corner, and it’s going to be bringing with it more threats than ever before. Rick’s group have managed to survive this far, with just the odd (dozen) deaths along the way, but this year is really going to ramp up the risk factor.
Firstly, there’s the walkers themselves. They haven’t been a major threat for a while now, but that’s set to change this year right from the off, with a hoard of over 600 undead set to launch on attack on Alexandria Safe-Zone, really putting that name to the test.
Then there are the Wolves, who as we know are ‘not far’. They’ve been built-up to be pretty major antagonists this year, in the first half at least, and exactly what happens with them will be exciting to see. Finally, there’s the small »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, the hit TV show now in its third season, is bigger and better than ever. Fans now have the soundtrack to keep them company as they anxiously await new episodes week to week. The soundtrack is now available for digital download and on CD October 16th. Bear McCreary, a famous composer located in California, is best known for his work on TV shows like The Walking Dead, but what does McCreary think of his work on season one of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? “The first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the most ambitious season of television I have ever been involved in." He continued, “I’ve always adored superheroes and their musical fanfares,” said McCreary. “The first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the most ambitious season of television I have ever been involved in.
