The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Will Have 90-Minute Runtime

25 February 2015 11:15 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, and the rest of the group may have found a moment of peace within the walls of the Alexandria Safe Zone, but fans of AMC's The Walking Dead know that with the season finale just five episodes away, there will likely be plenty of walker and human-fueled mayhem before this season takes its bow (especially with the fiendish folks who destroyed Noah's hometown still on the prowl). No matter what happens in this season's finale, though, it's just been guaranteed that there will be a little more to enjoy, as the final season five episode's runtime has officially been extended to 90 minutes.

TheWalkingDead.com recently made the extended runtime statement via Twitter, confirming EW writer Dalton Ross' initial announcement. Though the title and synopsis for the finale have yet to be revealed, it is known that Greg Nicotero directed the episode, which will air on Sunday, »

Stx Entertainment Dates Films With Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Jason Blum

25 February 2015 10:47 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Less than a year after it launched, Stx Entertainment has announced release dates for four films starring the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Jason Bateman, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman.

The first of these films, an untitled thriller from micro-budget maestro Jason Blum (“The Purge”), will debut on July 31. It stars Bateman and Rebecca Hall (“Iron Man 3″) as a married couple whose lives are upended when a high school acquaintance reappears in their lives. It will face off against “Mission: Impossible 5,” sci-fi thriller “Self/Less” and boxing drama “Southpaw” with Jake Gyllenhaal.

That will be followed on October 23 by “The Secret in Their Eyes,” a remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian film of the same name, with Roberts, Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years a Slave”). The film centers on a team of FBI investigators who must search for the killer of a colleague’s teenage daughter. “The Secret in Their »

Amount of ‘Must-See TV’ Creates Event Fatigue in Entertainment

25 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Add to the growing list of modern media maladies Event Fatigue Syndrome, a viral strain that is simultaneously under-diagnosed and, like so much these days, over-reported.

The entertainment industry obviously has an incentive to transform everything into an event, seeking to break through clutter and make noise over the din. Yet thanks to digital-age pressures, a vast ecosystem of media regularly joins in building up the trivial and engaging in hyperbole that helps conflate minor happenings into major ones.

Nobody can really throw stones here (Variety included), since vigorous competition compels us to pounce on perceived ratings and traffic generators. The result, however, has been a proliferation of contrived showcases so dizzying and time-consuming as to threaten to obscure actual news when it happens.

Television marketers have certainly been clever about mining this trend. A small example: the subtle genius of bifurcating seasons to double the number of “premieres” and “finales” — introducing, »

Paul Feig says his Ghostbusters reboot is inspired by The Walking Dead

25 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already heard that Paul Feig has compared his Ghostbusters reboot to Night at the Museum, and today we’ve got a new comparison piece. And this one seems a bit more fitting of Ghostbusters than the Ben Stiller vehicle.

While on The Talking Dead on AMC, the Bridesmaids director talked about what inspirations he was taking for his all-female vision of Ghostbusters.

“I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead],” Feig said. “What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead.”

Louisiana Tax Incentives at Risk?

25 February 2015 8:02 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Hollywood South might be losing some of its luster. Louisiana lawmakers are considering pulling back on the state’s tax credit incentives that have encouraged television shows like “True Detective,” “The Walking Dead,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” and Oscar-winning movies “Dallas Buyers Club,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “Django Unchained” to film everywhere from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. They’re concerned because of the minimal income that is directly generated from the film industry when compared to how much is given to moviemakers in tax breaks. But president of the Louisiana Film Entertainment Association Will French outlined the benefits of the program at the Baton Rouge Press Club Feb. 23, highlighting the potential of economic diversification; the possibility of further growth for the in-state industry, capturing Los Angeles’ runaway production; and increasing the number of people who return or stay in-state, as well as those who visit. »

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters Reboot Will Be Inspired By... The Walking Dead?

25 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

AMC's The Walking Dead is by far one of the most gruesome, bleak, intense, and -- it must be said -- humourless shows currently on TV; and it'll apparently be influencing Paul Feig's upcoming reboot (and he confirms that it will be a 100% reboot) of beloved horror comedy, Ghostbusters. The Bridesmaids director was a guest on The Talking Dead immediately following Sunday's episode, and when quizzed about whether he'd have any brain-eaters in the movie or not, he revealed that the zombie survival series would inspire his take on the '80s classic. "I will say, I was very inspired by this show. What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run.

Weekly Ratings: Oscars, ‘Tgit’ Dramas Lift ABC to Biggest Victory in 15 Years

25 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tune-in for the Academy Awards may have been down — hitting a six-year low in total viewers — but that didn’t spell doom for the Alphabet. In fact, thanks to increased strength across its schedule, ABC dominated Oscar week by an even bigger margin than usual.

With the network winning on Monday, Thursday and Friday as well as Oscar Sunday, it was able to draw twice as many young adults as runners-up CBS and Fox during the course of the week. That made it the largest in-season margin of victory in 18-49 for ABC (100%) since January 2000, one of the network’s final turns airing the Super Bowl.

For the February sweep, ABC won all four Thursdays in 18-49 for the first time in eight years; took all four Fridays for the first time in 20 years; and won three of four Mondays, winning the night on average for the first time in six years. »

Lionsgate and Telltale Games join forces for TV-game hybrid

25 February 2015 3:35 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The movie studio has invested in the developer of the Walking Dead games to develop a new crossover concept featuring both TV and game elements

There have been myriad attempts to marry television and games into “holistic transmedia experiences” – and the results have often been as bad as the phrase itself.

All that could be about to change following a decision by film and television studio Lionsgate to make a “significant” investment in Telltale Games, the developer of episodic adventure games based on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.

New scarier Ghostbusters movie inspired by The Walking Dead

25 February 2015 1:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

‘I really feed off The Walking Dead,’ says Paul Feig, director of the female-fronted spook-slaying reboot, who confirms film will be more frightening than Ivan Reitman’s original

The director of the forthcoming female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot, Paul Feig, has revealed his take is partly-inspired by ultra-gory cult favourite zombie TV series The Walking Dead.

Speaking on an episode of the Us show’s recap companion series Talking Dead, Feig said he wanted to bring some of the “scariness” and “gauntlet run elements” of The Walking Dead to the new film. His comments have not been interpreted as signalling that the new movie will switch from ghosts to zombies, or adopt the highly popular show’s fondness for blood and guts.

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

Sicario Set For September; Drug Runner Drama Stars Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro And Josh Brolin

24 February 2015 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the one-two punch of Prisoners and Enemy, Denis Villeneuve (pictured above) delivered two of the most tense, visually engrossing thrillers in years, and there’s no reason to suspect that the director’s next project, drug runner drama Sicario, will break his winning streak. Lionsgate has set a September 18th limited release for the pic, with plans to expand into more theaters a week later.

Emily Blunt stars as an idealistic FBI agent who gets in over her head when she is introduced to the shadowy world of international drug trafficking by two members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro). Enlisted in a daring plot to take down a Mexican cartel boss, the agent must rely on her wits and training to stay alive, even as the specifics of the mission lead her to question what ethical and moral lines she’s willing to »

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Reboot Will Take Inspiration From The Walking Dead

24 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot is poised to completely redefine the spooky franchise. Drafting in an all-female cast and a new story, it will include several subtle nods to the original series, but for the most part it’s expected to emerge as a standalone movie. Now, in addition to those cheeky winks, it seems Feig’s enjoyment of a certain undead serial may also play an influential role.

During his appearance on the cleverly titled The Talking Dead (via Screen Crush) – a companion show to AMC’s popular zombie drama, The Walking Dead – Feig brought up the affect that the series has had on his creative process:

“I will say, I was very inspired by this show. What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something; an element »
