Probably the weirdest Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice rumor to float in the past week said that all of the other rumors so far had been based on a fake script intentionally distributed by Warner Bros. The goal? To propagate misinformation about the film. Moreover, the rumor claimed that the author of that script was none other than Kevin Smith. The whole story seemed too ridiculous to be true, and now Smith has commented on it. To the surprise of no one, he says the whole claim is bunk.
On the more positive side, however, Smith is also sharing something new from his own film Tusk. He’s dropped the film’s first poster, and it’s a great image. Check that out below. Read More »

Briefly: AMC has already released a few briefs teases from the set of The Walking Dead season 5 but now they’ve gone one step further. Almost like you’re visiting the set yourself, they’ve premiered a short scene from the new season. Emphasis on the “short,” in that it’s 30 seconds and feels like an assembly made very quickly by an editor to show the actors what they just shot. But still, it’s The Walking Dead and there are zombies a-plenty.

Morgan Creek backed the 1990 film Nightbreed, written and directed by Clive Barker based on his own novella Cabal. The company didn’t entirely support the film at that point, but is starting to see the value in the story of an underground city populated by freaks and outcasts. Now, just as the extended Nightbreed director’s cut is about to hit Blu-ray for the first time, Morgan Creek is taking additional steps to develop a Nightbreed TV series.
News of a possible series isn’t new; Barker has mentioned it a few times in the past. But now we know a lot more, as the guy who has written the first few episodes of the new show is dishing out details. Read More »

Plenty of zombie movies deal with the heartbreaking difficulty of having to kill a zombie with a familiar face. Not many deal with the pitfalls of trying to date one. Jeff Baena‘s Sundance comedy Life After Beth is one of the select few.
Dane DeHaan plays Zach, who’s mourning the sudden death of his girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza). When she comes back as a zombie, he’s delighted to get a second chance at their relationship — even if it means putting up with her rotting flesh and newfound appetite for humans. Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Cheryl Hines also star. Watch the first Life After Beth trailer after the jump.

There’s a new Guillermo del Toro project hitting soon, and a lot of people don’t seem to know much about it. We’re talking about The Strain, the FX series adaptation of the vampire novels co-authored by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The show’s pilot was directed by Guillermo del Toro, and the overall aesthetic very much bears his signature.
The show follows events that begin with the landing of a plane at a New York airport. Nearly everyone on the plane seems to be dead, and the circumstances of the situation that led to the mass slaughter are difficult to pin down. But soon there are pale figures running around NYC, and a couple CDC-based scientists (Corey Stoll of House of Cards and Midnight in Paris and Mía Maestro of Breaking Dawn) are stuck trying to uncover source of the new plague while containing the breadth of its infection.
Below, watch a featurette focusing on the world-building done for the show. Read More »
