Fear the Walking Dead Showrunner

AMC premieres the new Walking Dead spinoff show Fear the Walking Dead this weekend. Set at the beginning of the zombie outbreak in Los Angeles, Fear centers on two families, the Clarks and the Manawas. Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) has moved in with Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), and their respective kids don’t get along, so the zombies are seemingly the least of their problems.

The cast and producers of Fear the Walking Dead gave a panel for the Television Critics Association last month. During the panel, show runner Dave Erickson answered common questions about the series. Fear won’t catch up to Rick waking up from his coma for at least two seasons, for example. And no, cast members from the Georgia-set Walking Dead won’t show up in Fear.

After the panel, I got some one on one time with Erickson to find out some of what we will see on Fear the Walking Dead. Read More »

New Star Wars Canon Timeline Infographic

Star Wars Legends

After Disney purchased Lucasfilm, it was announced that the Star Wars Expanded Universe would not be considered canon going forward (instead being classified with the “LEGENDS” branding). This angered a lot of Star Wars fans, but the announcement also brought something cool to the table: all the Star Wars stories in the future would be developed under the guidance of the Star Wars story group and would be consider canon. That means that everything, from comic books to novels, animated television shows to video games, everything would be considered a real part of this new Star Wars history.

And over the last year, a lot of new Star Wars stories have been released. What does the current Star Wars canon timeline look like at this point? What is the order in which these stories taker place? Hit the jump to see an infographic.

George Miller directing Man of Steel 2

As we wait to see whether or not Warner Bros. Pictures will move forward with a sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, it sounds like director George Miller could end up getting behind the camera for another sequel at the studio.

John Schnepp, the director of the documentary The Death of Superman Lives, has reportedly heard that Miller has been lined up to direct Man of Steel 2, the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot from 2013. Find out more about George Miller directing Man of Steel 2 below! Read More »

Star Wars The Force Awakens X-Wing

Hasbro has released a full catalog of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys that are coming out on Force Friday, which takes place on Midnight on September 4th 2015. Most of the toys are pretty much spoiler free as it seems JJ Abrams and the creative team is limiting the early merchandising to mostly the first third of the movie. For instance, notice how the Rey and Finn figures are only available in “Jakku” versions. I’m sure they change outfits and look different throughout the film, but we’re only seeing toys from the early scenes in the Force Awakens.

But there are a couple minor side characters shown and vehicles we have yet to see (most of which I believe were just created for the toy line, so they won’t be featured in the movie), so proceed at your own risk of very very minor spoiler information. Hit the jump to see all the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.
