Are you an avid viewer of The Walking Dead? Grown up watching George A. Romero’s films about the reanimated dead? Want to get in on the action yourself? Of course you do, and we’ve stumbled across the perfect event for you. Unlike other zombie experiences which rely heavily on a chase element, Generation of Z: Apocalypse instead has you act as a fly on the wall in an immersive piece of promenade theatre.
Zombie HQ is housed in Whitechapel, just a short walk from the tube station and is easily accessible. The production kicks off with the necessary health and safety brief – you may be manhandled, you may get bloody (but it will wash out) and, to steal from Arnie, there is no bathroom. Once briefed the audience is abandoned in a dark and dingy industrial basement, the walls littered with missing posters, the floor covered in rubbish and debris. »

The fifth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has come to an end, and though there is an upcoming spin-off prequel series Fear The Walking Dead to look forward to, for now, the adventures of Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and all the rest have come to a close until next fall. Which makes this the perfect time to reflect on those characters, and actors, still with the show – and those who aren’t.
Like many shows with a high body count (Game of Thrones is a particular standout here as well), there has been a lot of turnover as far as actors on The Walking Dead are concerned. In fact, from the original group in season one, only the characters of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) remain, and of those, only Rick, Carl, and Glenn have been there for every outing. »

The makers of the hit Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones games is to join forces with Marvel Entertainment, it's announced...
The last time we heard anything from Telltale Games, the makers of hugely popular adventures like The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones, they'd signed a deal with Lionsgate to make a kind of TV series-videogame hybrid.
It's now been announced that the developer has signed a new deal with Marvel, with the first games set to appear in 2017. According to Polygon's Michael McWhertor, who attended an event in San Francisco where the plans were announced, the games will look "eye-popping" and "sexy" - so says Marvel Games' creative director Bill Roseman.
At this early stage, we don't yet know what characters the Telltale-Marvel games will take, or even what platforms they'll be developed for. But going on Telltale's previous track record, it's probably safe to assume we'll be »
Since the initial success of their first season of The Walking Dead, developer Telltale Games has gained a lot of prominence in the industry and have been able to secure deals to make episodic adventure games with huge properties like Game of Thrones and Minecraft. Now, the company has announced what may be their biggest deal yet, a plan to team up with none other than Marvel Entertainment for a new series that’s set to launch in 2017.
No other details have been provided on what they have planned, and given the release window, it’s safe to assume that development on the project is just getting started. Still, this is an an announcement that is sure to get fans of both companies speculating on what properties may be used for the series. Given the wide range of licenses used both in Marvel’s own comics and the thriving Cinematic Universe, »

It's going to take somebody super nasty to unite the teams of Chicago Fire, Chicago Pd and Law & Order: Svu for the big three-show crossover. That somebody is The Good Wife and The Walking Dead veteran Dallas Roberts as Dr. Yates. Just how nasty is this Yates? Well in the clip below a fellow traveler stops him to ask why something in the back of his car was moving quite a bit. What could it be? A kidnapped girl or his dog? Is he nastier than the Beast (Pablo Schreiber)? In the Svu part of the crossover, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Voight (Jason Beghe) continue the investigation into a rape and murder that is very similar to a case Benson worked with Stabler (Christopher Meloni) all those years ago.

Helena Christensen just gets better with age! The 46-year-old supermodel shows some serious skin in the latest issue of Madame Figaro, flaunting her killer bod in nothing but a pair of metallic shorts. In another set of pics, the brunette bombshell flashes her breasts in a mesh tank top and puts her toned booty on display in a tiny two-piece. The leggy beauty still looks long and lean, crediting her slim silhouette to a "good metabolism." She even admits that she doesn't have to watch what she eats, declaring, "I love good food." While Helena may not follow a strict diet, she tells that mag that she works hard on her enviable bod! "I started [working out] quite late, around 30 years old," she explains. "I started because I wanted to feel more toned. It's fascinating to see the muscles lengthen working parts of the body." "I hate endurance - it's impossible for me to run a marathon, »

They may be dead-eyed, gray-skinned and determinedly brain-hungry, but zombies have feelings too in “Maggie,” an improbably bred but surprisingly humane hybrid of flesh-eater horror and young-adult weepie. Though Henry Hobson’s hugely promising debut feature is generating buzz from the casting of a fine, low-key Arnold Schwarzenegger as the anguished father of a semi-zombified teen, it’s Abigail Breslin’s gutsy, nuanced turn as the reluctantly undead title character — at once a heroine to be protected and a mutant threat to be destroyed — that makes the film unique within its grisly canon, lending this Roadside Attractions release potential crossover appeal beyond the genre crowd. “Let’s enjoy the time we have with her” is perhaps the most ironic line in a nervy, relentlessly solemn exercise; formula-resistant auds, however, should gladly spend 90-odd minutes in “Maggie’s” company.
Having been amply covered by A-list studio productions and bargain-basement exploitation fare alike, »

When State of Decay landed on the Xbox 360 all those moons ago, it really set the bar for just how much scope there could be for an Indie title. The world was huge and the story could go on for as long as you wanted it to, you were the story, Every new stranger you met along the way was another life line, another part of your adventure to tell through the eyes and experiences of another. Sure, there were slight problems here and there. It wasn’t the most beautiful looking game out there and with quite the slew of menus it could be fussy at times. The controls weren’t perfect either; handling combat well while climbing and other more nuanced movements leaving a lot to be desired but at its heart, it was the perfect open world zombie game. »

Though AMC has had some popular scripted series that have run for years, many others have been cancelled after just one season. How are the current crop of shows doing? Which will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
Last update: Ratings for the most recent episode of Turn added.
There's lots of data that AMC execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here's an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.
In the midst of all the blood, guts and horror on The Walking Dead, might there also be love in the air? Fans everywhere love the super close relationship between zombie-hunting hunk Daryl (Norman Reedus) and badass Carol (Melissa McBride)...even though there hasn't been any real hookup between them. Yet. Nope, just lots of shared intense looks, heartwarming hugs and some off-the-charts, crazy chemistry. And when E! News' Marc Malkin caught up with Reedus at the premiere of the new HBO documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck to chat about the fan-favorite relationship, he got super adorable and protective about it. Seriously, we can't stop swooning...and laughing. That's just the Reedus charm at »

Ausiello: It certainly seems like Elena’s jonesing to take the cure, doesn’t it, Kristen? (Especially after that clip we posted with her dreaming of having children with Damon.) We can’t confirm that Elena will end her run as a human or a vampire, but know this: Damon’s decision to »
After spending decades thinking big, TV executives are being asked to narrow their vision.
Madison Avenue is putting new pressure on networks to help find distinct clusters of audience, rather than merely barking out their ad pitches to the crowd at large, as has been standard practice. It’s a demand that threatens to redefine the economic foundation upon which TV has rested since the days of “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Dragnet.”
The dynamic surfaced definitively last week, with word that both Viacom and Time Warner’s large Turner unit have begun talking to select advertisers about new deals that center less on the number of people who see the spots as measured by Nielsen, and more on whether consumers actually react to the commercials. Turner has offered certain advertisers the chance to establish guarantees, such as lifts in brand recognition or purchase intent, on four of the unit’s cable networks — Cartoon Network, »

Norman Reedus is credited with roles in over 60 films and TV shows, and while some of his performances have been impressive, none of them come close to matching the popularity he’s garnered as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s hit zombie thriller The Walking Dead.
Daryl is a phenomenon, with an enormous cult following and whole ranges of merchandise based on Reedus’ character, remarkable considering he started out as a prickly loner during the show’s first season.
Unlike many of his Walking Dead co-stars, the 46-year-old actor is working on several other projects alongside the show, with three films wrapped up ready for release towards the end of this year, and the start of 2016.

Despite a slew of off-field incidents, less-than-stellar PR and some Sunday night losses to The Walking Dead, the NFL proved again last year that it is a TV ratings juggernaut. Now the league is out with the upcoming season’s schedule, and it has stacked the Sunday, Monday and Thursday night lines with high-profile players and teams.

The big takeaway tonight from a panel screening of The Walking Dead season 5 finale, held tonight at the Egyptian theater as part of AMC’s Emmys push: it turns out that behind the scenes, the show is just as much of a Ricktatorship as it is onscreen. Or to put it more clearly, Andrew Lincoln is far and away the most beloved – by his costars – member of the cast. Again and again, cast members went out of their way to praise Lincoln as a supportive coworker who as often as… »

The speculation surrounding the currently empty director’s chair of Marvel’s planned Captain Marvel movie continues to focus on Angelina Jolie. According to Collider’s updated story from their sources at Marvel, the appointment of Patty Jenkins as director of Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. has essentially kicked that speculation up a gear, moving the rumor status from the studio being ‘in pursuit of Jolie’ to being ‘in hot pursuit of Jolie.’ It remains to be seen whether the actress-director is either interested in making a comic book adaptation, or has the time – but the rumors highlight an interesting, yet frustrating trend in the current superhero genre.
There is no denying that both DC/Warner Bros. and Marvel/Disney have heeded audience calls for better female representation in their superhero movie franchises. Less than ten years ago, every major superhero release was led by male characters, but now, we »
