Don’t Worry, Nathan Fillion Has A Plan For The Zombie Apocalypse, And Here It Is

Zombies are everywhere, from hit TV shows to commercials for chewy fruit flavored treats and economy cars. The possibility of a zombie apocalypse is a big worry for some, and has even been used as a tool to raise awareness for disaster preparedness and disease prevention. But don’t worry, Nathan Fillion has a plan. That’s right, the Firefly star has a strategy and he detailed it in this clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live. So if you’re fortunate enough to be around Fillion when the shit goes does, great, but if not, you can emulate his approach as laid out here.

This isn’t so much a specific contingency plan, like meet here, we have stashes of food, weapons, and supplies all over the place, or anything quite so concrete, but it’s more like an overall approach to everyday life that will prove useful when the dead start to walk the Earth. For example, he’s cataloging the practical skills of all of his friends, determining who will be useful in the event of a zombie-based emergency. Knowing details like this will come in handy and help shorten the decision time when choosing who to ally yourself with.


Ronald D. Moore On What It Was Like To Kill Kirk In Generations

KirkDeathStar Trek: Generations definitely wasn’t the franchise’s finest hour, but it did have the major selling point of getting to see Kirk share an adventure with the Next Generation crew. Unfortunately for Kirk, that adventure ended with his death after he got a freaking bridge dropped on him. One of the two men responsible for writing that death scene was Ronald D. Moore, who went on to bring us the Battlestar Galactica reboot and Starz’s Outlander adaptation. In a new interview with Collider, Moore shares his thoughts about what it was like to be tasked with killing off a character he’d grown up idolizing.

Moore told Collider:

It was difficult, and yet I was very eager to do it. It was a really odd thing. I really wanted to do that story. I really wanted to write the death of Captain Kirk. I really wanted to do it in the movie. I remember writing the scene with Brannon [Braga], my writing partner, at the time. When I said, ‘And Kirk dies,’ I wept. It was very emotional and very strange, in the moment and all the way through the process. I’d read it in the script and I’d always be struck by what I’d just done and what we were doing, and that this was my childhood hero and I was writing his death. Even then, I didn’t quite know what to make of it. I was mystified by why I was doing it, why I was so driven to do it, and why it was affecting me like it was. I still don’t know what it means. It’s a strange singular experience. I don’t even know anyone to talk to about it because I don’t know anyone who’s had that experience.


Ghostbusters Cast Reunites For This Magazine Cover And Interview

ghostbustersAs you’re probably well aware, this year marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, one of our all time favorite movies. I’m sure you all went and saw it a few times when it was released in theaters a few months back, right? Or maybe you waited and picked up a copy of the newly released Blu-ray. But that’s not all there is in store to mark this momentous occasion, as the cast and crew recently got together for a photo shoot and interview.

Above, you can see the Entertainment Weekly cover featuring the surviving members of the core group, including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis, who played Egon, as you know, passed away earlier this year.


Need For Speed Director Just Got A Huge Budget To Make This Crazy Sci-Fi Movie

Scott WaughNeed for Speed isn’t much of a movie, but the car chase scenes are actually badass and exciting, and director Scott Waugh definitely showed that he can handle his business when it comes to action. For his next trick, the former stuntman and stunt coordinator, is tackling an ambitious sci-fi project called Inversion.

With a reported budget of $120 million, this is going to be a huge step up for Waugh, who is most known for co-directing the Navy SEAL actioner Act of Valor, which starred actual active duty Navy SEALS. Foresight Unlimited, the company behind the Mark Wahlberg vehicle Lone Survivor and the surprisingly awesome 2 Guns, is producing, and if they’re going to invest this much in a picture, they better have a great deal of confidence.


Peeta Lives In This Hunger Games: Mockingjay Clip

With Christopher Nolan’s space epic Interstellar hitting a limited number of theaters today, and opening across the rest of the world on Friday, the next big sci-fi movie on the calendar is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. The first part of the final chapter of the popular teen-centric dystopia is ramping up the marketing engine for the final push. They’ve already dropped tons of trailers, TV spots, photos, and all manner of viral videos, and today brings this new clip for you to check out.

This 41-second snippet is basically an extended version of a moment you’ve already seen in a recent TV ad. In Mockingjay, after being rescued from the Hunger Games arena, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself in District 13, which everyone thought was destroyed. She’s alive, and safe from the forces of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capital for the time being, but she’s dealing with some stuff, and part of that is survivor’s guilt because she thinks her sometimes boyfriend Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is dead. As you learn in this clip, that’s not the case.


This Kickstarter Campaign Aims To Make Tornado-Chasing Drones, Here’s Why

droneWhen I was two, a tornado plowed through my hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan, blazing a trail of destruction through the downtown core. The damage was so bad that a few months later, someone in town started printing, “Yes, there really is a Kalamazoo” t-shirts, affirming that the city was still there. My parents tell me that the mess in our yard made me cry and that I was afraid I’d somehow get in trouble for it. We also dug a Kentucky Fried Chicken mashed potato spoon out of the ground (there was a KFC about a mile away) and I still use it as an ice cream scoop. Even though it’s not in tornado alley, Michigan gets it fair share of twisters, but even more than that, it gets a slew of scares. But now there might be a way to more accurately predict tornadoes: drones.
