Last night, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and showrunner Sam Catlin pulled off what was once considered impossible to some filmmakers: they successfully adapted Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Rogen, Goldberg, and Catlin ground the often wacky and wild story without excluding Ennis’ dark sense of humor or the spirit of the characters. The pilot retains some of the series’ key elements while also taking the story in a slightly different–and arguably more somber–direction.
To celebrate AMC’s adaptation, Gallery 1988 will release a new Preacher poster following all of the first season’s 10 episodes. Check out their first Preacher poster below.

There are two religious horror-tinged television shows based on comic book series premiering this summer, but AMC’s Preacher has been grabbing all of the headlines and walking away with all of the buzz. Meanwhile, internet has been awfully quiet about Cinemax’s upcoming adaptation of Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta’s Outcast. In fact, the pilot episodes of both shows premiered at SXSW this year (opposite each other on the schedule, even) and everyone seemed to flock to the Preacher screening, leaving Cinemax’s demonic possession drama hanging.
And it seems like Cinemax knows that it is time to finally start trying to hook people on its new show because the premium cable network has put the entire first episode of Outcast on YouTube for free and you can watch it right now.

Back in 2014, Fox began developing a show based on the long-running comic book series “Archie.” Greg Berlanti–who’s no stranger to comic book adaptations, having worked on The Flash and Arrow–is producing Riverdale, and chief creative officer of Archie Comics, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Supergirl), wrote the pilot. The one-hour drama is no longer set up at Fox, though. The CW is the new home to the series, which stars KJ Apa (Archie Andrews), Camilla Mendes (Veronica Lodge), Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper), and Cole Sprouse (Jughead Jones).
The first promo image–a shot of the main cast–was recently released. Below, check out the Riverdale first look.

The good news is that Suicide Squad seems to deliver on the hype with some early reactions hitting the web following a test screening. Read some of the lucky attendees’ Suicide Squad reactions after the jump. Read More »
