Thirty-Foot Giant Squid Found In Spain

fb share tweet share

giant squidWalter White may have broken bad, but nature is breaking big. From giant killer hornets to massive dino farts to the recent discovery of a Cthulhu-esque giant squid on the beaches of Spain. Hey, they’re nice beaches — maybe the squid was just trying to get a little sun.

Giant squids are a bit like the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot — they’re fabled and feared, but with one important difference: they actually exist. Science and the internet say so, and now so do dozens of beachgoers in Cantabria, Spain who found more than driftwood and shells as they combed the sands.

Godzilla Comic-Con Footage Revealed, And It Is Awesome

UPDATE: It’s back up again. Watch it while you can!

Godzilla stands revealed, people! Or at least he will until the video gets pulled again, hopefully after you fine people have had a chance to watch it. Yes, the Godzilla teaser footage screened at Comic-Con this past summer has found its way online, and it is pretty damn sweet. In case the embed above is already dead by the time you’re reading this, we’ll include a couple of screencaps from the trailer as a consolation prize.

While we loved Pacific Rim and thought it threw the gauntlet down when it came to giant monster action, it’s been clear from the get-go that Godzilla was going to be a different beast. The surest sign of that was the hiring of director Gareth Edwards (Monsters). He’s said from the beginning that he wanted his take on the classic movie monster to be a very realistic vision of what a rampage by giant creatures might look like unfolding in our average, generally monster-free world.

Damon Lindelof On The Breaking Bad Finale And Coming To Terms With Lost

fb share tweet share

lostA few days ago, the series finale of Breaking Bad broke ratings records on AMC. The finale was five years in the making, as every episode of the hit TV series seemed to be leading to the final moments of the episode. For the most part, series creator Vince Gilligan stuck the landing on one of the most highly regarded TV shows of the past decade. The last time a series finale gained the attention of so many viewers was the end of Lost on ABC. While the series finale of Lost was polarizing, to say the least, many viewers couldn’t help but be angry at Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof all over again after Breaking Bad‘s finale succeeded in all the ways they thought Lost‘s final episode did not.

Moments after the Breaking Bad finale aired, fans began lashing out at Lindelof via Twitter. Keep in mind, Lost ended three years ago in 2010, so it really goes to show that some people just can’t let that show’s controversial finale go. The Internet trolling was so bad that Lindelof penned a guest column on The Hollywood Reporter to clear the air about the series finale of Lost, and to congratulate Vince Gilligan for a job well done on Breaking Bad.

MythBusters Takes On The Walking Dead On October 17

mythbustersBack in January, we told you guys about the guys from MythBusters putting out an open call for zombies for an upcoming episode that will look at different situations featured in AMC’s hit zombie drama (and something this site reports on every now and again) The Walking Dead. If you don’t remember, it’s possible the memory part of your brain might have been eaten out. In any case, we now know when we’ll be able to finally watch that episode. It’s a tad early for Halloween, but Discovery will be airing it on Thursday, October 17th. If you gobble down a bunch of candy bought for Trick ‘r Treaters while watching it, we won’t tell.

Thankfully they released more than just a release date, and named a couple of the themes they’ll be tackling. “Are axes or guns more effective at dispatching the undead?” is one of the troublesome questions they’ll try to answer, along with “How do those shuffling corpses always seem to catch up to their living prey?” While the weapons-based side of it is right up the alley of hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, that second question sounds like it’ll be more complicated. Unless they just bring on Jason Voorhees to explain that people just get tripped up on their own feet way more often than one might think. It’s too bad one of the questions isn’t “How many punches does it take to make Carl cease to exist?”

We just have to jump in and enjoy watching Rick Grimes and his team survive in a new world infested with the undead. The TV spot highlights our group of characters trying to defend the prison from Walkers.

The Walking Dead Companion Series In The Works At AMC

fb share tweet share

zombie girlIt’s no surprise that AMC’s most popular TV series is also its most bloody and gruesome. No, I’m not talking about Breaking Bad, but rather The Walking Dead. Since its premiere episode, The Walking Dead has brought viewers to the cable network in droves. For some perspective, its series premiere episode “Days Gone By” attracted 5.35 million viewers in 2010, while it’s most recent season finale “Welcome to the Tombs” brought in 12.42 million, which is the largest audience for a cable network. So why wouldn’t AMC want to keep The Walking Dead gravy train going with a spin-off?

AMC has announced that they are currently developing a new companion series for The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, and David Alpert are all on board as the new series’ executive producers for AMC Studios. While there are no plot details available at this point, AMC says it won’t be based on any existing storyline from the Walking Dead comic book. Series creator Robert Kirkman says:

‘After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,’ said Kirkman. ‘The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.
