‘The Walking Dead 8×13: Do Not Send Us Astray’ Review

A world without Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) would be a world where the Saviours are out of control. In this week’s The Walking Dead we see just what this would be like, and the after effects of a battle with a secret silent new killer edge to it.

With Negan out of the picture, Simon (Steven Ogg) is in full control. Taking war to the Hilltop he battles to take out the survivors once and for all. The after effects of this battle are felt by everyone, especially those left at the Hilltop to contemplate the losses the Saviours have brought to them.

If there is one thing to take away from this episode it is that Morgan (Lennie James) is steadily falling off the deep end. Continually visited by the now dead Gavin (Jayson Warner Smith) he is reminded of the events that took place between them. Gavin

Here are the best moments from “Honor.”

Back to Before – The episode begins with the shot of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) from the season premiere, muttering “my mercy prevails over my wrath” while tears roll down his cheek. A stained glass window hangs overhead. But then we see his heavenly vision of the future, where an older Rick leads a blissful life with Judith. Finally, we travel to the moment where Carl (Chandler Riggs) was bitten. He brings his new friend Siddiq (Avi Nash) to Alexandria without mentioning his wound, but Rick and Michonne aren’t there. Worried he will die before they return he spends the hours before the Savior

Crypticon Minnesota 2017 Interview with The Walking Dead’s Jayson Warner Smith & Cooper Andrews

  • DailyDead
The Halloween celebration recently continued beyond October 31st at the 12th annual Crypticon Minnesota, which once again brought together a wide range of horror genre actors, artists, and fans for a weekend to remember and conversations to treasure. While enjoying the amazing booth experiences at the event, I had the great pleasure of catching up with The Walking Dead's Jayson Warner Smith (Gavin) and Cooper Andrews (Jerry), to talk about their respective roles in the series' eighth season and the intense events of the seventh season.

Thanks so much for taking the time to talk, guys. Jayson, your character Gavin really intrigues me because he seems almost reluctant to be a Savior based on how he reacted when he found out that Benjamin died, and also when Rick came to the Sanctuary, he almost seemed like he wanted to take a time out and be like, "Let's talk about this.

Not all wounds suffered in war are obvious. The fog of war is replaced by the fog of the Va for a band of soldiers returned from Iraq in Thank You For Your Service. While several films have depicted the experience of soldiers in the Iraq War, few have told the story of their experience after they return home. Thank You For Your Service focuses on gritty reality rather than comforting patriotism as

Watch Miles Teller In Thank You For Your Service Trailer

DreamWorks Pictures has released a first look at their upcoming film Thank You For Your Service.

The drama follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield.

Starring an ensemble cast led by Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Joe Cole, Amy Schumer, Beulah Koale, Scott Haze, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Brad Beyer, Omar J. Dorsey and Jayson Warner Smith, the drama is based on the bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Finkel.

Jason Hall, who wrote the screenplay of American Sniper, makes his directorial debut with Thank You For Your Service and also serves as its screenwriter.

Book synopsis:

No journalist has reckoned with the psychology of war as intimately as David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers, his bestselling account from the front lines of Baghdad, Finkel embedded with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they carried out the infamous “surge,” a grueling fifteen-month tour that changed them all forever.

In Thank You for Your Service, Finkel follows many of those same men as they return home and struggle to reintegrate―both into their family lives and into American society at large. He is with them in their most intimate, painful, and hopeful moments as they try to recover, and in doing so, he creates an indelible, essential portrait of what life after war is like―not just for these soldiers, but for their wives, widows, children, and friends, and for the professionals who are truly trying, and to a great degree failing, to undo the damage that has been done. Thank You for Your Service is an act of understanding, and it offers a more complete picture than we have ever had of two essential questions: When we ask young men and women to go to war, what are we asking of them? And when they return, what are we thanking them for?

Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games series, Babel) produces the film, while Ann Ruark (Biutiful) executive produces.

Universal Pictures will release the film October 27.
