With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, as evidenced in the latest still from the film, which shows someone who looks like they came from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.
Revealed by Bloody Disgusting, the new still from Rob Zombie's 31 features a very memorable member of the Murder World proceedings. Though the official cast member and character in the still haven't been announced, there are physical similarities between this character and Richard Brake's Doom-Head, who was revealed in a shadow-shrouded still in March, so they very well could be one and the same.

Prison or the zombie apocalypse: which would you choose? One person who doesn’t have to make that decision is Orange Is the New Black actress Elizabeth Rodriguez, who plays Daya’s mother Aleida Diaz on the Netflix dramedy, as she has been cast in AMC’s upcoming Walking Dead companion series, Fear The Walking Dead. As EW.com first reported, Rodriguez has been cast in a mysterious role in Fear The Walking Dead, and the show’s producers are keeping any and all details about her character under wraps at this time. One thing we can assume, though, is that Rodriguez’s character most likely joins the show after its first episode, since the pilot for Fear The Walking Dead has already been shot, so don’t expect to see her in the series premiere. In addition to her work on Orange Is the New Black, Rodriguez’s past »

Over the weekend the official site for 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot updated, offering some character profiles for Marvel’s First Family which discussed their powers. Of particular note was the description for Reed Richards, which said that “he can warp the space around him, and appear to stretch his body into impossible forms and to incredible lengths”.
Naturally, this led us to assume that Reed’s abilities would be altered somewhat for this new take on the Ff, but it turns out that isn’t the case after all, as producer Simon Kinberg has got in touch with HitFix to clarify the situation and confirm that Mister Fantastic will indeed be stretching his body in the upcoming film.

In fact the cat leaped from the bag, wailing and scratching in spectacular fashion.
Left vulnerable by Prince Kenneth’s plans to expose her pregnancy to Juliette, Adalind goes to the only person she knows can protect her, Nick. Needless to say, Nick’s reaction to the discovery he’s going to be a daddy is one of shock and disbelief, and he is naturally resistant to her attempts to help her. But Adalind’s not a master manipulator for nothing, and soon Nick is promising to protect her (and her unborn baby boy) from Juliette, who it’s fair to say, reacts very badly to news of the pregnancy.
