Preacher Comic-Con Panel

AMC’s Preacher is based on one of the most popular (and controversial) comic books of the past few decades, so it’s right at home at Comic-Con. The blasphemous blend of fantasy, horror, and comedy has showcased some serious momentum in its second season and the series’ panel revealed a new trailer and an extended clip that promise the off-kilter insanity isn’t stopping anytime soon.

fear the walking dead comic-con panel

Appropriately, Fear the Walking Dead served as a warm-up act to its parent show at Comic-Con in San Diego, premiering a new trailer for a packed house of fans. While AMC’s zombie spin-off has never achieved the overwhelming popularity of the original The Walking Dead, it definitely offers a different flavor of zombie apocalypse via the Mexican locations and a timeframe that places the action much earlier in the franchise timeline.

With the second half of the show’s third season returning this September, the series looks to bring its various story threads to a boiling point. As you’d expect, the details we learned and the footage we saw promised a grim future for the various survivors.

The Walking Dead season 7 trailer

It may still feel like summer outside, but fall is just around the corner. And with those cool breezes and lower temperatures will come the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, which infamously finished its sixth season on a cliffhanger back in April.

The characters of The Walking Dead have every reason to hate Negan, and fans may resent the show for cutting away just before we learned who was on the other end of Lucille. But Negan himself is clearly loving the attention. The Walking Dead season 7 trailer is all about the new big bad played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and while it doesn’t offer much in the way of clues about his victim, it gives you plenty of time to get acquainted with the man himself. Watch it below.  Read More »

Preacher renewed

Jesse Custer may not be a very good preacher, or even a very good person, but for the past several weeks he’s been one hell of a reason to look forward to Sundays. And AMC wants to make sure you keep coming back to that little church in Annville. As Preacher passes the halfway mark of its first season, AMC has renewed it for an expanded second season, to consist of 13 episodes.  Read More »

Preacher - Ruth Negga as Tulip

AMC’s Preacher earned some great buzz at this year’s SXSW, but those of us who weren’t lucky enough to attend the world premiere of that pilot still have weeks to go before we find out how exactly Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin‘s vision of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s beloved comic series turned out. Thankfully, AMC knows we’re hungry and has decided to throw us a bone.

A Preacher sneak peek offers a better look at Ruth Negga‘s Tulip, and more specifically at what a badass she is. She may not have the supernatural gifts of her ex-boyfriend Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) or the bloodsucking proclivities of her their pal Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), but she’s got a fighting spirit that’s all her own. Check out the clip below.  Read More »

Preacher reviews

One of this year’s most anticipated screenings at the SXSW Film Festival wasn’t for a film at all, but for a show. AMC brought the very first episode of its long-developing Preacher adaptation to the event, much to the anxious anticipation of the source material’s many fans.

Based on the graphic novel by Garth Ennis and Steve DillonPreacher follows, well, a preacher, who finds himself in possession of a very unusual power. He sets out on a quest to confront God, and along the way joins up with a former flame, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire, Cassyidy (Joseph Gilgun). And by all accounts, the story is even stranger than that description makes it sound.

Show creators Seth RogenEvan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin (the latter of whom will also serve as showrunner) have been very upfront about the fact that their series would not be a letter-for-letter, panel-for-panel adaptation of the source material. And Ennis, for what it’s worth, doesn’t seem to mind one bit. So the real question here is how capably they’ll have captured the spirit of the novel. We’ve rounded up some of the Preacher reviews after the jump.
