bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:32

Season 4 of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” wrapped up last night and the money train just keeps on rolling right into Season 5. That guy Gareth (Andrew J. West; pictured above) from Terminus will be sticking around so AMC has bumped him up to series regular, per Deadline. Also getting promotions are Alanna Masterson (former Governor acolyte/current Terminus resident Tara) and Christian Serratos (who plays Rosita).

[ECCC '14] Dark Horse Talks Building Better Characters

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:29

Or… The Annual Handsome Men Gathering Panel

Greg Rucka, Michael Avon Oeming, Bryan JL Glass, Curt Pires, Frank Barbiere, Jai Nitz, Adam Warren gathered at Emerald City to talk character in their respective Dark Horse titles. It was a candid chat that allowed each creator to articulate their unique spin on character within the framework of their individual titles.

Greg Rucka started things off talking about “Veil.” He pitches how strange the book is, but he doesn’t want to give too much away. He promises that issue two will give some answers about what she is and where she is from and there will be more rats. It’s not going to get easier if you don’t like rats. Rucka has a rat issue that he is working out but they are important to the story. Scott Allie and Greg talked about Tony’s style, his pitch was originally very different. The series is about how men look at and treat women. Issue four has a death within it that is so cool and so ghastly, if Tony pulls it off then we’ll be really chilled. Greg comments that Veil is one of the most challenging things he’s ever worked on. He developed his own language for the book. He said this is book that filled him with fear, and that fear is a great motivator. He finished by saying the arts don’t reward complacency, we reach to write something tomorrow that is better than today.

Matt Kindt takes the stage to talk “Mind MGMT.” Issue 20 just hit. It’s about spies with mind powers. About a woman who’s trying to find out about who this organization was. Mind MGMT is going to be a new starting point in July with issue 24.

Micheal Avon Oeming on “The Victories.” His take on realistic superheroes. The idea grew through therapy. He would talk about friends and family, using those issues in relation to characters. Mix with ancient aliens and stuff, and you have the book. He said issue 15 would be the end of the series, completing one full story. He writes and draws everything himself. Scott serves as almost a writing partner, not just an editor. The series is done with the dark world, and aims to bring everything back to Faustus.

Adam Warren talked about “Empowered” with Brandon Graham on the newest oneshot. More advanced planning in the future with focus on different characters, empowered volume nine is loosely slated for a year from now. Came from a place of being tired writing damsels in distress.

“Furious” with Bryan J Glass focusing on the tabloid trash celebrity, Furious looks at herself with superpowers and realizes she is a monster. The premise of the character was nailed down, and then the passing of Whitney Huston cemented it. The implosion of Celebrity insanity inspires the five issue miniseries. Furious wants to be the beacon, she wants to inspire others, and the news media dubbed her as “Furious.”

Frank Barbiere’s “The White Suits,” has been in development since 2011. Toby’s art is unbelievable. The White Suits disappear after terrorizing Russia. A female FBI agent chases the white suits, and the amnesiac protagonist follows her. They each have their own motivations. It’s a four issue mini, that’s half over. Toby is a legend. This is his book.

“Dream Thief” with Jai Nitz. It’s a book about a bad dude who gets possessed by murdered ghosts when he sleeps. He murders the people that killed the ghosts. He wakes up in a room with a dead body. Greg Smallwood does pencils, inks, colors, and letters on the book. He and Jai have a 50/50 collaboration where they break everything down and how the story changes based on his killings. They put things back together for John Lincoln. It’s a reverse Quantum Leap. Dream Thief 2 is coming out in June. “Dream Thief: Escape.”

Curt Pires and Jason Copeland announce, “Pop.” They take manufactured popstars literally. El is one of the pop stars that are breeded in this gigantic plantation and she escapes before she’s due to be sold. She meets the local stoner who’s about to kill himself. Spring Breakers as an inspiration, gazing into the abyss of popstardom.

Settle Down For A Blood Popsicle With This 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Clip!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:06

Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska, is easily one of my favorite films of the year. It’s a fantastic hang-out movie that could just as easily have the title Before Sunrise. Some people will be “bored” with it, but I feel sorry for them. This new clip from Indiewire shows off a bit of the film’s flavor.

Ryan Daley liked, but didn’t love the film. I gush more here.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

New Michael Jackson Music Coming This May

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 16:00

On May 13th, Epic records, along with the estate of Michael Jackson, will be releasing Xscape, an album featuring brand new music from the king of pop. The album will feature eight never-before-heard tracks and a deluxe edition will also be released that will feature the original source recordings. Pre-orders for the albums will begin tomorrow.

Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid is overseeing the project after having been granted unlimited access to four decades worth of material. Direct from the press release: Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson’s essence and integrity. It’s a process Reid calls “contemporizing.” The album’s lead producer, Timbaland was one of a handful of producers Reid believed had the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson’s work. Additional producers include global hitmakers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.

Reid states, “Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world. Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.

New Head Of Xbox Says It's "Gaming First" For Xbox One

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 15:56

When the Xbox One was originally unveiled, it was obvious Microsoft was positioning their new console as an all-in-one device with video games taking a backseat to the platform’s myriad other uses. That’s since changed, though video games still haven’t seen the push they did on the Xbox 360, or the PlayStation 4.

Now that Phil Spencer has been appointed the new Head of Xbox at Microsoft, he says it’s his goal to lead the Xbox team with a focus on video games.

“Xbox is a gaming brand and [Microsoft] took the person who was at the head of the gaming franchises to lead the Xbox team,” Spencer told Polygon. This decision “really shows a commitment” to games on the now four month-old platform.

“With me you’re going to get a focus on gaming first and a best platform to play games on,” Spencer added. “It’s not a focus we ever lost but it’s one I’ll be accentuating at Microsoft. It’s really going to be a gaming-led focus with Xbox and my new role allows us to execute on that.”

A fresh perspective is desperately needed at Xbox. The Xbox One has been outsold by the PS4 by a factor of close to 2 to 1 worldwide and Sony has only amped up their own “gaming first” philosophy by signing on more indie developers — there are over 1,000 licensed indie devs developing for PS4 right now — and continues adding to the already extremely valuable PS Plus membership. Microsoft is losing touch with their core fans, gamers, and it’s having a detrimental effect on the console’s success.

I hope Phil Spencer can get them back on track, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Feel free to send Adam an email or follow him on Twitter:

This 'A Haunted House 2' Clip Goes Straight For Racial Humor

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 15:48

Remember when a spoof movie actually had jokes about the films they were goofing on? That’s why Scary Movie was so incredible.

Marlon Wayans’ absolutely unwatchable A Haunted House completely missed this, and went straight for pop culture jokes and racial humor (the lowest form of comedy, even below prop comedy). I was hoping for more out of Wayans and Open Road with A Haunted House 2, yet they appear to have learned nothing. It hard to blame them when they’re going to make mega-millions at the box office. Sigh.

Watch a “spoof” of The Conjuring in which Wayans, Cedric the Entertainer and Jaime Pressly make literally no jokes about the James Wan-directed film and literally go straight for the racial humor. I’m out. Enjoy.

Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle and Cedric The Entertainer all star.

In theaters April 18, “Crossing new lines and breaking old barriers, A Haunted House 2 is the sequel to the hilarious box-office hit starring Marlon Wayans as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend and her two children. After moving into their dream home, Malcolm is once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. With spine-tingling tension and hilarious punch-lines A Haunted House 2 is inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and shows that this time… it’s not just the house that’s haunted!

A Haunted House 2 spoofs supernatural horror movie hits such as Paranormal Activity 4, Sinister, The Possession, Insidious, The Conjuring, and more. This time… it’s not just the house that’s haunted!

Get Your First Look at In the Flesh Season 2; BBC America Premiere Date Announced

Dread Central - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 15:36

We knew BBC America would be airing Season 2 of "In the Flesh" sometime this year, and now the official premiere date has arrived along with a "first look" teaser video and a few more details of what's coming.

The expanded six-episode new season of "In the Flesh" will debut on Saturday, May 10th, at 10/9c immediately following a new episode of "Orphan Black," only on BBC America.

"In the Flesh" creator Dominic Mitchell reignites the world of teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferer who continues in his struggle to find acceptance. The six-parter is a BBC AMERICA co-production with BBC Drama Production North.

In the cauldron of Roarton, where the living and the undead have reached a fragile peace, Kieren is desperately keeping his head down and squirreling money into his ‘escape fund’ for Paris. But in the wider world, fear is in the air. The radical Pro-Living Party, Victus, is gaining government seats with a resulting spate of PDS terrorism linked to the Undead Liberation Army (ULA).

With the arrival of new and explosive characters from both Victus and the ULA, Kieren’s plans are thrown into disarray as both set their sights on him. He’ll find himself caught in the emotional crossfire, making his desire for a quiet life an unrealistic option.

Luke Newberry (The Legend of Hercules) reprises his role as Kieren Walker and leads the cast together with Emily Bevan ("The Thick of It") as Amy Driver, Harriet Cains ("Doctors") as Jem Walker, Stephen Thompson ("Doctors") as Philip Wilson, Kenneth Cranham (Maleficent) as Vicar Oddie, Kevin Sutton ("Shameless") as Gary, Steve Cooper as Steve Walker, Marie Critchley as Sue Walker, Sandra Hugget as Shirley Wilson, Gerard Thompson as Dean, and Gillian Waugh as Pearl Pinder.

They are joined by new cast members Wunmi Mosaku ("Dancing on the Edge," I Am Slave), playing local MP Maxine Martin, and Emmett J. Scanlan ("The Fall," "Hollyoaks"), who plays charismatic disciple of the Undead Prophet, Simon.

Copyright Lawsuit Aims to Block 'The Conjuring' Sequel's Production

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/31/2014 - 15:27

Warner Bros. and New Line have been hit with a copyright lawsuit seeking to block production of sequels to their hit horror film The Conjuring, reports Variety.

According to the site, the suit, filed Friday by Evergreen Media Group and Tony Derosa-Grund in federal court in Houston, alleges theft of the underlying rights to the case files of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

For its part, Warner said that the suit is “improper” and noted that New Line filed a claim against Evergreen last year over rights to a “Conjuring” TV series that has gone to arbitration.

New Line has been and is vigorously defending itself against these spurious claims in a binding arbitration proceeding in Los Angeles, and therefore the Texas filing is both procedurally and substantively improper,” the studio said.

New Line has set its Conjuring sequel for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning to star. The yet-to-be titled sequel does not have a director yet.

Evergreen Media said in the new suit that New Line was only granted rights on less than 1% of the case files of the Warrens’ stories in exchange for a purchase price for each theatrical production as well as a crediting and employing DeRosa-Grund as producer.

Plaintiffs and New Line successfully developed and produced a hit theatrical motion picture entitled ‘The Conjuring’ based on one of the selected case files,” the suit said. “Defendants, however, now seek to reap all of the profits from ‘The Conjuring’ while denying their financial obligations and failing to pay any profits to Plaintiffs.

New Line has acted in bad faith and breached its agreement with Plaintiffs by, among other things, failing to pay for the underlying rights and stealing those rights to make additional films, both theatrical films covered by the agreements as well as direct-to-video films that are not covered by the agreements, without compensating Plaintiffs or including Mr. DeRose-Grund as producer.

The suit also alleged that Warner and New Line have refused to pay Evergreen the 5% profit participation that it’s due for “The Conjuring” under the producer agreement.

Additionally, the suit asserts that because of the dispute over the TV rights, Lionsgate has withdrawn from a proposed “Conjuring TV” series with Evergreen.

As a direct consequence of Defendants’ deliberate actions and interference, Evergreen is unable to collect the compensation owed under its agreement with Lionsgate and has suffered monetary damages that reach well into the millions of dollars,” it said.

The lawsuit alleges that Warner Bros. has committed a breach of contract, a breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, tortious interference, fraud in the inducement, promissory estoppel and conversion. The plaintiffs are seeking damages including the studio’s profits and revenue.
