Cast and crew of "The Walking Dead" have been dropping hints for months now about what viewers can expect from the upcoming fifth season of the show. They were at it again this weekend, as the group that sat for a panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con also chatted with Entertainment Weekly's SiriusXM station about the spoiler-ific season ahead.
Actors Norman Reedus (Daryl), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Danai Gurira (Michonne), and Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) and executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth spoke with EW's Dalton Ross about what lies ahead for the series, and just where the group might end up. Cudlitz hinted that "it certainly looks like we're heading to DC" to find a cure for the zombie outbreak, a quest that his character started at the end of season four.
But that's not all that's in store for fans of the hit AMC drama. »

Comic-Con was plagued by a strange set of voodoo dolls, which popped up around the main convention center by 'A.' The string dolls were found in random hotel bedroms and lobbies filled with Comic-Con attendees. They were also spotted near The Walking Dead booth on the convention floor and hanging from the popular pedestrian bridge, and sidewalks down Fifth Street, leading to Comic-Con.
Mystery Voodoo Dolls Found At Comic-Con
The dolls came with a small thumb drive and had “Malum Est” written on their bodies. When connected, the drive directs the lucky recipient to a choppy video, where the same “Malum Est” phrase is clearly seen. It is unclear where, exactly, these dolls were found. Journalist Emma Loggins posted a photo of a voodoo doll she found at the convention, writing, “Found a creepy #voodoo doll today at #sdcc.”
The video does not, however, say what exactly it is promoting. »
Given some of its backstory and the people behind it, the episodic point-and-click adventure game Ar-k sounds pretty promising at first glance. With an ongoing story told through four individual installments, a successful Kickstarter campaign, plus recognizable writing and voice acting talent, it sounds like a surefire success on paper. Unfortunately, the final product isn’t exactly that, as good dialog and acting can’t save the game from lackluster visual presentation and near-nonsensical puzzle logic.
Players assume control of Alicia, a college student who is down on her luck due to an unfortunate incident during her past attempt to follow in her father’s footsteps as a successful cop. When the game starts up, Alicia wakes up from a one-night stand with a massive hangover and no memory of the man she hooked up with, and efforts to piece together the previous night end up dragging her into a »

Gale Anne Hurd rose to the pinnacle of Hollywood by producing some of the biggest and brashest films in history, none more so than “The Terminator,” directed by her then-husband James Cameron.

(Cbr) At Comic-Con International, Skybound Entertainment premiered the teaser trailer for the Robert Kirkman-produced sci-fi thriller Air. Directed by Christian Cantamessa from a script he wrote with Chris Pasetto, the film is set in an underground facility that houses cryogenically frozen people who are intended to re-establish society after nuclear fallout renders Earth’s atmosphere unbreathable. Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) star as custodial workers who struggle to hold on to their sanity — and their lives — as they maintain the last livable place on the planet. “The film is full of hope,” Cantamessa said during Skybound’s Comic-Con panel. “It’s just my way to kind of give hope that there is a future, and the best way to experience it is maybe seeing the other side first, and then you can appreciate what you’ve got,” the director said. “I think »

Earlier this year, a Vancouver location was turned into a top secret set. Security was so tight that at any given time there were a handful of personnel guarding the stars and producers. You'd think Tom Cruise was on set but instead, it was Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou. The movie they were shooting? Air.
Though it sounds like a bunch of other movies we've seen before, much of the recent buzz around Air comes from the fact that the movie is being produced by "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman. Big name alert...I guess.
The teaser isn't exactly earth shattering but it sets up an interesting premise: Reedus and Hounsou are custodial workers whose job is to maintain the equipment that keeps the underground bunker that houses the remnants of humanity.

Fans of "The Walking Dead" no doubt sensed a bit of sexual tension mounting between Daryl and Beth in the latter half of the show's fourth season, where the pair were stranded alone together, and began to to form an intense bond. But is there really a chance for romance for the pair?
Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, shared his thoughts with Cinema Blend during an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, noting that Beth offered Daryl, who had already suffered plenty throughout the series's run, a bit of hope.
"Beth was kind of like this long dark tunnel. She was kind of like this little flame at the end of it," Reedus told the site. "[Daryl] got closer and closer to that flame and thought maybe he could see something and maybe there would be light and it's getting warmer and warmer... and then someone blew it out."

On the “Zero Day” of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Image held a mini-Expo and announced a dozen new titles from creators, both popular or relatively unknown , including some new to writing or drawing for Image. These comics show that Image is the place where creators can roam free and write and draw crazy and interesting stories in a variety of genres. This freedom paid off big time as Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ sci-fi love story Saga continued to dominate the Eisner Awards. Part of Image’s commercial success is due to Robert Kirkman, especially The Walking Dead and the popular AMC television series it spawned. San Diego Comic Con showed that his comics have cross-media potential even before the first trade of a comic he is writing comes out.
