If you thought flying was scary with all of the fees, no food, lack of legroom and Tsa regulations, imagine adding zombies to the mix. Fear The Walking Dead's season may have ended last night, but the pre-apocalypse (well, if there are zombies roaming around, we guess the apocalypse is in full swing) fun continues in the new web series Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 that will also air during The Walking Dead. The first episode of the 16-part series debuted last night and everybody is as persnickety as you'd imagine they would be on a delayed flight in the early hours of a rainy morning. No zombies, but plenty of angry people and quite a few questions already: How old is that kid's phone? Why »

During last night's "Fear the Walking Dead" finale, AMC aired both a first trailer for the spin-off show's fifteen-epiosde second season along with the first part of its sixteen-part companion web series "Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462". The cable network has now made both those clips available online and you can check them out below.
Further episodes of "Flight 462", which follows a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak, will run for less than a minute long and will debut every Sunday both online and on-air during new episodes of "The Walking Dead" for the duration of the sixth season:

Just like that, Fear The Walking Dead has come to a crashing, flashing end. Its 6-episode run was over quickly, but it has already left an impression on the fans, though not all are won over just yet.
Fans will always be skeptical of new companion series’ based on colossal shows, and The Walking Dead’s equivalent has been no exception. Over 10 million people tuned in for Fear The Walking Dead’s Pilot, a record for a debut episode, but the numbers have tailed off and opinions have been divided over the show.
There has been a fine balance of hugely positive comments and disillusioned fans, but who is right? Well, I really do think it has been a very interesting series so far, regardless of fans who compare it to Twd. It’s very tough not to draw similarities between the two shows, but so many people have »

While James Wan has projects lined up that encompass many genres – Aquaman and MacGyver, to name just two – horror is clearly where the filmmaker’s heart is. His directorial efforts may be diversifying, but his producer’s eye remains focused clearly on the shadowy, darker corners of the minds of his audience – and those shadows will soon take the form of an adaptation of the popular 2014 novel, The Boy Who Drew Monsters, by Keith Donohue.
The adaptation will be written by Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time) and Richard Naing (making his screenwriting debut), and will be produced by Wan for New Line. The plot of the book has all the elements of a great scary tale, featuring aspects of ghost stories, combined with a ‘creature feature’ atmosphere.

It's a shame AMC only made six episodes for the first season of "Fear the Walking Dead." "The Walking Dead" companion series was just getting good.
The Season 1 finale, "The Good Man," was really good -- action-packed, tense, emotional, surprising, and filled with tons of walkers. One main character was bitten -- Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez), the ex-wife of Travis (Cliff Curtis) and mother to Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) -- and Travis shot her before she turned. But the season ended on a hopeful note as the group followed enigmatic smooth-talker Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) to his swanky ocean-front digs and prepared to join him on an even swankier yacht.
You may recall how that Atlanta character occasionally brought up the idea of heading east to the coast. »

Fear The Walking Dead, Season 1, Episode 6, “The Good Man”
Directed by Stefan Schwartz
Aired Sundays at 9pm (Et) on AMC
With “The Good Man”, Fear The Walking Dead wraps up its first season, a decidedly mixed bag filled with great imagery and so-so characters. The finale keeps things incredibly brisk, focusing on pushing its story to the next stage and moving the characters toward the world we recognize from The Walking Dead. It’s a bloody hour, one that satisfies in mostly expected ways.
The hour acts largely the way a finale should. It wraps up the season’s storylines, as Travis and Maddie’s family and the Salazars head to the military compound with the goal of retrieving Nick, Liza, and Griselda, leading all of the walkers that were locked in the stadium to the compound, effectively overrunning it.
God this show looks good. »

Earlier this year, Paramount and Hasbro brought together a writers' room of scribes to help map out the future of the Transformers films.
Headed up by Batman & Robin and A Beautiful Mind writer Akiva Goldsman, the room featured the likes of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man's Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Lost's Jeff Pinkner and The Incredible Hulk's Zak Penn. The idea was that between them all, they'd flesh out and pitch a bunch of films that would carry the Transformers series forward.
And so it's turned out.
Hasbro Studios president Stephen J Davis has declared the exercise an overwhelming success. In his address at Mip Junior in Cannes (which sounds posh, so naturally we weren't there), Davis said that "as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that »
After learning from last week’s Fear the Walking Dead that the soldiers had orders to “mercifully terminate” the civilians they were protecting, we knew that this week’s first season finale wouldn’t be pretty. But just how ugly did it get? Read on…

AMC has released the first installment of the web series Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 Part 1 online and you can watch the entire thing in less than three traditional commercial breaks.
Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 takes place during the early timeline of Fear The Walking Dead as the virus outbreak is beginning to take hold. One survivor of the plane where someone will be outed as having the virus will become a castmember in Season 2 of Fear The Walking Dead.
AMC is dishing out new installments of Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 in roughly one-minute pieces, once per week around the time that new episodes of The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere on Sundays. We won't get to see who ultimately survives until sometime in 2016.

More “Transformers” — much more, in fact — is on the way.
“We just finished, as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience,” he said. “We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time.”
“Nine of some of the most creative writers I have ever worked with, shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind and written a bunch of great movies,” he went on. “And they plotted out the next 10 years of Transformers. Similarly, we are doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned, Transformers 5 is on its way, and 6 and 7 and 8.”

With the season 2 debut, titled "Axis Mundi," The Leftovers moves to Jarden, TX, aka "Miracle" -- a town where no one departed. But don't worry, the town's just as nutty as what happened to the rest of the world on the 14th.
The Leftovers, remember, is not a show for everyone, but boy do I wish it was. This show makes you feel things deeply. Heck, I teared up over the new opening credits (especially when I'm reminded that the Guilty Remnant stole and cut up people's photographs of the Departed). The Leftovers is a show about moving past tragedy and that's not something most people want to deal with on Sunday nights. That's why we watch The Walking Dead. I kid, I kid.
I've been more positive about Fear the Walking Dead than many other people. However, I was looking forward to the season 1 finale for only one reason: the suffering would finally be over. Not just for the survivors, but also for me. I'm still intrigued by a second season and will probably watch. While the finale is way too long, Fear the Walking Dead does set up some interesting elements for future seasons.
I just realized how little I care about the show and the characters. Even when things get exciting in the finale, it's still slow. Fear the Walking Dead's greatest strength has always been its difference with The Walking Dead. For better or worse, the finale follows through on that diversity.

Season six starts with Alexandria’s safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of our survivors will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they’ve needed to embrace. These reversals won’t happen easily, or without conflict. But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival… They’re fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.

“The Walking Dead” is the highest-rated show on television, and it’s birthed a spinoff that could eventually give it a serious run for its money. “Fear the Walking Dead” has garnered higher ratings and more viewers than the first season of the original series, which first premiered in October 2010. The spinoff and prequel series is set at the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse which would ultimately claim the human population, save for a few pockets of survivors, led by Andrew Lincoln‘s Rick Grimes on the original series.

"In 2015, Taylor Swift created her squad," the ominous disembodied narrator says in SNL's trailer for the Walking Dead-inspired faux-film The Squad. "By the end of her tour, the entire world had joined." If you've been a bit suspicious of Taylor Swift's weird habit of accruing an ever-growing amount of celebrity guests on her never-ending 1989 tour, you may have been on to something: She's actually been methodically converting everyone to her nefarious Squad, one radio-friendly song and American-flag beach towel at a time. "What do they do all day?" one of the very few survivors of the Swiftpocalypse asks. "I think she, like, invites them on stage and they walk around on stage for a minute, or something," another answers. »
