One of the most anticipated films of the winter movie season, Warm Bodies is starting to get the attention of genre fans and general audiences. The story of a zombie who falls in love with a living person will surely warm your heart (and body) this winter. To build awareness of the zombie romantic comedy, Lionsgate releases eight new images from the film to get audiences excited for this February release. Check out the Warm Bodies stills below.
Half-Life 2, despite being released in 2004, is still hogging a big chunk of the spotlight, due to additional releases, including episodic expansions that could have altogether served as an entire sequel. But a major bulk of this continued fascination comes from the user-created Mods, made possible by the Source engine, which include games based around everything from unofficial Portal games to to GoldenEye 007 to George Romero’s zombies. Last year’s odd indie hit Dear Esther? This is where it came from. You’ll notice I didn’t mention dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs! Now I did it. Jurassic Life, a Mod modelled after, you guessed it, Jurassic Park, spent the better part of last year in the creation stages, but the first actual gameplay footage has recently been released. Here it is…
It has been over twenty long years since the quirk-ridden town of Twin Peaks, Washington initially started altering our nightmares, and it took over fifteen of those years to get the entire series locked down into one DVD set, while the underrated Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me still hasn’t garnered any interest from the Blu-ray gods. Now let’s take that well-traveled path from the saw mills to the rumor mills.
Mark Frost, the non-David Lynch co-creator, was recently interviewed in this to Imgur, which is an anonymous tip from someone saying they sat in on a meeting between NBC and David Lynch, and that there are plans to bring a third season to TV in the future. It states Lynch wants most of the cast back and wants to be hands-on with the project, though NBC is hesitant to allow his “unusual” tastes to be the only ones involved. For plot, it says the story would revolve around good Cooper still being in the Black Lodge, while bad Cooper is still in prison, and that a young female reporter would end up uncovering the dark story behind the town, BOB and all. Moviehole also reports that some cast members, including Log Lady Catherine E. Coulson have been contacted about reprising their roles should a reprisal occur.
While there is no word yet on who will direct the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney, there has been an insane amount of rumors and speculation on who will get the job. There’s no doubt that this will not end until Disney announces the director and every possibility is up in the air, even candidates that seem really, really unlikely.
During a Q&A with Deadline, director Wes Anderson spoke about his admiration for the original Star Wars trilogy and how those films played a valuable part of his childhood. Although Anderson is one of the more acclaimed directors of his generation, the auteur feels he’s at a certain disadvantage because of his signature style. Anderson admitted:
‘Well I have a feeling I would probably ultimately get replaced on the film because I don’t know if I have all the right action chops,’ he said. ‘But at least I know the characters from the old films.’
Anderson doesn’t rule out the possibility, but he at least realizes where his strengths lie as a writer and a director. Anderson did jokingly speculate about what he could do with the Star Wars universe: ”I don’t think I would do a terrible job at a Han Solo backstory,” Anderson said. “I could do that pretty well. But maybe that would be better as a short.”
