New year, new slogan. AMC released new key art for The Walking Dead season five, featuring a very sweaty Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) with the tagline, "Hunt or Be Hunted." "From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season five is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted" Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a statement when the fifth season trailer came out. "In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow)." The show, which has continuously been a ratings hit in the »
Nearly six weeks ahead of its Season 5 premiere, "The Walking Dead" has its first official poster and a catchy tagline. "Hunt or Be Hunted," reads the "Walking Dead" Season 5 key art released on Tuesday (September 2) morning. It features Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes looking stressed out and holding a gun, which is to say "business as usual." When we left Rick and the other survivors, they were experiencing a certain amount of frustration courtesy of their new friends at Terminus, though if you don't know that already, AMC says that the fourth season is available on VOD and at AMC.com. TV's most watched drama among adults 18-49, "The Walking Dead" starts its fifth season on Sunday, October 12 at 9 p.m. Here's what the cast and producers had to say about the fifth season at San Diego's Comic-Con last month. And here's the full key art. »

How do you kill a zombie? If you were to break it down, shot-by-shot, what would it look like? Dylan Coulter photographed The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Lauren Cohan on July 13 in Atlanta for Entertainment Weekly. Using multiple-exposure, Coulter answered those questions.
He began by taking separate photographs at separate exposures. In post-production, he put them together, overlapping images very selectively. There, he toyed with transparency, lightness, and darkness, emphasizing and de-emphasizing layers at his discretion. Coulter’s photographs resulted in four separate covers for each character, with Yeun and Cohan sharing a cover. »

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.
So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 8, “Creatures of the Night”
Written by Chuck Hogan
Directed by Guy Ferland
Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX
Often in serialized television, some of the best episodes come when the action is narrowed down and focused on a specific character (as in “Two Boats and a Helicopter” and “Guest”, in the ongoing first season of The Leftovers) or location (as in “Fight”, the recent hotel room-set episode of Masters of Sex). “Creatures of the Night” is a rather effective combination of the two, resulting in a quasi-bottle episode largely taking place in a gas station as Eph, Nora, Jim, Setrakian and Fet(!!!) star in their own mini horror story, an hour of fun TV.
It is often reminiscent of some of the better action-oriented episodes of The Walking Dead, which makes sense because the episode is directed by Guy Ferland, who has been behind the camera for many Dead episodes. »

It seems as though every week brings us another announcement, or another rumor, about yet another remake, reboot, or sequel. The remake of the 1980s cult action film Escape from New York has been kicking around for awhile now, but questions have been raised about who can fill Kurt Russell’s shoes as the hero with the eyepatch Snake Plissken. In a recent report from Starlog (via /Film), Charlie Hunnam topped the list of actors rumored to be in the running for the coveted (?) role.
Hunnam occupies the top spot in a wishlist of actors that also included Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey). Hunnam is certainly the most immediately recognizable star on that list, having crossed into big budget action star territory with Pacific Rim. But, he is also lined up for Pacific Rim 2 and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur, so taking on this part »

Charlie Hunnam is about to be seen in the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" on FX and after that it will likely be a long stream of movies and the schedule is starting to fill up. He was recently named the title star of Guy Ritchie's Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, he will almost certainly be back for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel and now he's rumored to be the top contender to play Snake Plissken in the remake of John Carpenter's Escape from New York alongside a couple others still in the mix. Hunnam as well as Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey", The Guest) and Jon Bernthal (Fury, "The Walking Dead") are reported to be the top three choices for the lead role, looking to pick up after Kurt Russell as Plissken, a convicted bank robber in a crime-riddled New York City-turned-maximum security prison, coerced »

A remake of John Carpenter's revered action thriller Escape from New York has been gestating for years, but no one seems to be able to get it off the ground. The most recent attempt in the works was reported about a year and a half ago with Studio Canal teaming with super producer Joel Silver (The Matrix, Lethal Weapon) and his Silver Pictures banner to start from scratch on the project. Now it sounds like they're making some progress as a rumor from Starlog (via Badass Digest) has surfaced saying that Pacific Rim and recently crowned King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam is the top contender to play Snake Plissken. Read on! However, he's not the only actor in the running as The Guest star Dan Stevens and former "The Walking Dead" cast member Jon Bernthal could also end up with an offer. Reportedly none of these three have read for the film, »

Don't Mess With Michonne, even in Monopoly
With the premiere of The Walking Dead only a month and change away, I decided it was time to get reacquainted with the zombie apocalypse, and what better way to do that than by playing a rousing game of monopoly. Not just any Monopoly, though, as we have to keep it themed, so it's all about Walking Dead Monopoly.
Also, I think I’ve set a record for how many times I have used Monopoly in the opening paragraph of any post ever. If not, well then, Monopoly (I’m really competitive).
Okay, back to business. Since we all know how the core game plays, there is no need to go over it ad nauseam, so for things like this I’ve developed a different type of review, a 5 things review. Here are the 5 things that stuck out most about Skybound and USAopoly's latest venture. »

Producer Joel Silver is currently developing the new version, with Starlog reporting that the movie will follow the Avengers formula of creating a team of characters for multiple sequels.
A number of supporting characters will be upgraded to 'co-leads' according to the report, including schizophrenic travel guide Cabbie, war journalist Mina, presidential security detail survivor Gareth and Snake's former crime partner Brain.
Escape from New York is set in a future world, and follows convicted bank robber Snake Plissken who is »
Well, chalices don't come much more poisoned than this one. Kurt Russell, in the eyes of legions of moviegoers, is Snake Plissken, a character he brought to the screen in some style across Escape From New York and Escape From L.A. But as had been revealed earlier this year, plans are afoot for an Escape From New York remake, mooted as the first of a trilogy of films. And it looks as if things have been progressing.
For we now have word of the potential choices to take on the role of Plissken in the new movies. The three candidates? Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim), Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, The Guest). Charlie Hunnam is believed to be in pole position for the role, unless »
Something is going on with current TV shows where (this week in particular) a capsule, single-focus episode sneaks in around mid-season. It's a good thing. It's also a great way for character development, instead of having the plot jump all over town, whipping from story to story. The device also makes the show feel more novelistic, and acts as a great stand-alone (one of those episodes, too, that you can point to to get new viewers interested). "Creatures of the Night" was all of that, and it continued The Strain's track record of improving every single week. Hit the jump to put it to a vote: "who wants to stay and die?" "Creatures of the Night" was essentially the turning point that made The Strain turn into The Walking Dead. The mythology of both share a pathogen basis, and the Cdc is pretty useless in both cases, but the difference »

Producer Joel Silver is still planning to reboot Escape From New York, and a new report claims that he not only has three actors in mind, but also that the movie will follow the same “team” direction as the likes of The Avengers!
The current version of the script has apparently always had a team dynamic to it, but now a number of supporting characters have been elevated to “co-leads”, with iconic antihero Snake Plissken set to be joined by four others.
They will be Cabbie, a schizophrenic travel guide who serves as comic relief; Mina, a war journalist who becomes a scavenger after being framed for murder; Gareth, the last surviving member of the President’s security detail who harbours a dangerous secret; and The Brain, Snake’s former partner-in-crime who left him to die.

Like any great TV show or episodic story-telling, playing the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is an absolute must in order to get the full experience from season 2. After such high praise and critical-acclaim for the previous 6 episodes, expectations were high for the next 5 episodes. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise or the types of games Telltale has been pumping out, The Walking Dead is a point-and-click, choice driven game. It’s more of an interactive story than a video game, but the choices you make will affect the story and put it in different paths. You can play an episode and compare notes to a friend who has played the same episode and realize you two have experienced a totally different part of the story — and that’s really cool.
Season 2 revolves around Clementine, who played as a supporting role in the first season and »
