Now a new video has emerged that glimpses into the multi-layered process of zombie actors learning to perform stunts realistically, such as falling down like a puppet with its strings cut off after being shot by Rick or another survivor.

After becoming Marvel’s biggest-franchise starter at the global box-office by overtaking the haul of 2008’s Iron Man earlier in the week, James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now become the first release of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically and has also crossed the $600 million mark worldwide. Having opened in Japan yesterday, and with a Chinese release still to come, Guardians certainly has a good chance of becoming the highest-grossing comic book movie of the year, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on $708 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on $714 million and X-Men: Days of Future Past on $745 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, »

This latest photo from The Walking Dead Season 5 features Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) with a stone-cold look on his face. That's the look of a man who feels like he's losing his soul. The series is set to return on October 12th, and I'm excited and nervous to see what it's going to bring us.

Z Nation, Season 1, Episode 1, “Puppies and Kittens”
Written by Karl Schaefer
Directed by John Hyams
Airs Fridays at 10pm Est on Syfy
With such an enormous boom in zombie fiction, it is understandable that many people met the Z Nation previews with an eye-roll. When something has become a cliché, it will always present the opportunity for a project in that vein to either bring new light to the tired theme or mock a storyline that has been done to death. Syfy’s Z Nation is not bringing anything new to the table, but with such hilarious lines obviously poking fun at the genre as, “God, I hate moral dilemmas!” it is easy to see how this show could be entertaining.
Three years into the apocalypse, a diverse group of survivors meet and become allies with Mark Hammond, a government soldier who is transferring a man who is immune to the zombie virus. »

With exactly one month until The Walking Dead returns with the Season 5 premiere "No Sanctuary", AMC has released six new character photos which show the main characters right where they were left at the end of Season 4.
Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) are pictured trapped inside a Terminus railroad car, with only a few beams of light peeking through their new home. Check out the images below, then read on for more information regarding Season 5.
The big question swirling around Season 5 of The Walking Dead is not if they will get out of Terminus, but when will they do so? AMC released a new featurette last month that teased the group will be moving back into an urban city environment, after spending a majority of the season in the wilderness, away from the vicious walkers. »
In the fourth season, we see Rick and the group of survivors fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison only to have it short-lived as the group loses everything, their home, family, and friends to the threat of the walkers, outside threats and the hidden dangers brewing inside the fences. The group of survivors are broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested - a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others. The Walking Dead stars: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Scott Wilson, Emily Kinney, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Iron E. Singleton, Madison Lintz, Danai Gurira, Melissa Suzanne McBride, Michael Rooker, Lauren Cohan, Vincent M. Ward, Chad L. Coleman, Brighton »

The best thing that could ever happen to The Walking Dead is the arrival of Z Nation on Syfy on Friday. The super-popular but critically underappreciated Walking Dead may be seen more favorably for its writing, acting, visual acumen and storytelling capabilities now that Z Nation proves you can’t just put hungry zombies on the screen and have something worth writing home about. On the other hand, if all you want to see are zombies, zombies, zombies — meaning it’s all about the gory and not about the story, then Z Nation may be your thing. In fact, as a

The new Syfy series Z Nation is set three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood, in the hopes of using it to make a vaccine. With the human race’s survival at stake, a ragtag group of individuals embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of post-apocalyptic America. The show stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson and Keith Allan. During this recent interview to promote the show’s premiere, showrunner/executive producer Karl Schaeffer talked about how this show is different from other shows like it, some of the biggest challenges they’ve faced, cranking out all of the make-up effects, what makes these zombies different, »

Earlier this month, The Tick creator Ben Edlund confirmed that a reboot is in the works, which will likely debut on Amazon. No one involved with the project can say too much about it at the moment. But Patrick Warburton did chat with us about the possible return of everyone's favorite big blue superhero, whose live-action series ran just 9 episodes before being cancelled by Fox in 2002.
Unable to provide any substantial plot details, Patrick Warburton tells us that the show will be darker and edgier than the original. Creator Ben Edlund has a new take on the show, which will utilize some of the VFX and CGI that wasn't available 12 years ago.
Patrick Warburton is currently celebrating the return of his 1999 cult classic Hollywood noir The Woman Chaser as it premieres on Netflix September 20th. We took the opportunity to ask if any other original cast members will be back for the new Tick. »
Z Nation Syfy Premieres: Sept. 12 Airs: Fridays at 10pm Et/Pt If you are heading into tonight’s premiere of Syfy’s Z Nation wondering who in their right mind would attempt a zombie show at the zenith of The Walking Dead’s popularity— uh, well, the Sharknado guys, that’s who.

For one, it gives us e’er faithful Dead fans — and I am Activities Director of that camp around here — permission to tune in and blame it on curiosity about that pedigree.

In AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 4, Michonne once tried to cheer Carl up by spraying her mouth full of canned cheese. This small moment showed a softer side of the steely exterior Michonne displayed in Season 3, and detail-oriented McFarlane Toys includes the cheese with a new Michonne figure that’s part of their unveiled Series 7 figure line that also features Carl, a Mud Walker, and Terminus leader Gareth.
Now available to pre-order for $14.99 apiece and set to come out in March of 2015, McFarlane Toys’ TV Series 7 figures come with accessories unique to each character (such as Michonne’s can of cheese and katana sword). Each item depicts the character as they appeared in Season 4 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. We have a look at the figures below (thanks to BigBadToyStore.com for the images!):

Aah, mid-September. Bright blue sunny skies, crisp breezes, prefect sweater weather. So refreshing. Unfortunately, unlike my platonic ideal of early fall, it is actually hotter than balls where I live. So, so hot. So while I sit here in shorts and a tank top, let’s dream of cooler days and the hoodies we’ll wear.

The season five premiere for “The Walking Dead” is fast approaching, and AMC is whetting fans’ appetites with a series of atmospheric character images ahead of the show’s Oct. 12 return. Variety has an exclusive first look at the photo for Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier, whose harrowing character arc proved to be one of season four’s most compelling — and gut-wrenching — storylines.
At San Diego Comic-Con in July, McBride admitted that the hit show has grown even more intense in its fifth year, telling reporters that the episodes she’d filmed thus far were “very physical, non-stop action” installments.
The actress also expressed gratitude to the fans and writers for embracing Carol’s painful journey, especially the “dark irony” of the bereaved mother having to kill another young girl after losing her own daughter. “It was an amazing storyline and I loved playing that deep, nasty, messy stuff,” she said. »
