Going into season five, The Walking Dead is more popular than it’s ever been, which is probably why on Sunday the National Fan Expo was barely open for business and Constitution Hall was almost full of fans waiting for a panel with Walking Dead cast members. A little over an hour later, the moderator called out the “five of the amazing people from the show; three of whom are still living on it,” and Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and David Morrissey (The Governor) all gathered on stage to a thunderous applause.

Those that have been keeping up with The Walking Dead know that the latest mid-season finale exited the character of The Governor – permanently (if you’re one of those that didn’t see the episode, then sorry, spoilers – deal with it).  And while Rick and his gang certainly won’t miss the one-eyed bastard, the actor himself, David Morrissey, will be missed by cast and crew (and more than a few fans).  To honor the time this excellent actor has put into the show, AMC has put together a little video containing some of our fondest memories of him along with interviews with Morrissey and the crew.  Check it out below: (more…)

‘Walking Dead’ EP Talks About Why THEY Had to Die

walkingdead

So last night’s mid-season finale of The Walking Dead was a proverbial (and literal) blood bath, even by Walking Dead standards. It featured the death of two important characters and rearranged the deck chairs of the show, which will surely take the motley crew of zombie apocalypse survivors in strange new (darker?) directions in the back-half of season four. But before we head those directions when the series returns in February, it seems like a good time to talk to executive producer Scott Gimple and gets his insight on what [SPOILER] and [SPOILER] had to die.

Warner Bros. has released the first TV spot for their upcoming low budget indie film about a flying alien with multiple personality disorders. It is called Man of Steel: The Tale of the Man Who is Super, and it is not (apparently) a sequel to the criminally underrated comic book superhero movie, Steel, which starred Shaquille O’Neal in a raw and tumultuous demonstration of thespianic talent so thunderous and impactful that it may or may not have been the real cause of Jimmy Stewart’s death.

No, it is not that — sadly — but Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder, a man who never saw Steel, a man who rejects all other spellings of that name and a man who previously directed Sucker Punch, a movie about owls, 300, The Watchmen, the Dawn of the Dead remake, and uh… there is also a Morrisey music video on his IMDB page, I should mention that as well.

By the way, does anyone else think Morrissey looks like the guy who played The Governor on The Walking Dead? His name is also Morrissey, David Morrissey. Do you think they are related? Maybe they are cousins.

Anyway, David Morrissey isn’t in this film but Henry Cavill is, and he is British, but I don’t think they are related. Also in this film: Laurence Fishburne (who was in The Matrix), Kevin Costner (who was not), Russell Crowe (who used to be in a band), and Amy Adams, who is the only redhead in Hollywood that I don’t really find attractive with the exception of Donny Most.

If you don’t know who Donny Most is, I hope you accidentally swallow a baby snake and it lays eggs in your colon and then you poop baby snakes and then when you look in the toilet you get so scared that you pass out and then someone who you are kinda into, but haven’t yet gotten with, finds you and you are so embarrassed that you move to Alabama where you start a small thrift store called “Old Shit” and hire all these mischievous employees and one day, some guy from a network comes and offers you a reality show, but he isn’t from one of the good networks, but that doesn’t matter because you do the show anyway, and they schedule you in a weird time slot right behind a reality show with Anson Williams called “That’s Just Anson Being Anson” and…

[Disclaimer: If you are, somehow, still reading this, then kudos to you. You are a brave little toaster and if I had the financial ability to do so, I would tender you a voucher for one granola bar… quite possibly a Kudos granola bar, because they are tasty and that would make literal the whole Kudos thing from before.

Yes, that would have been the bees knees, but sadly I am not able to tender you such a voucher, so you will just have to settle for a hearty dash of gratitude, and a quick return to the conclusion of this article that everyone else simply ignored to get to the bottom, where the fresh, new Man of Steel footage lies waiting for you. Again, many thanks.]

… at a network mixer, you and Anson, Anson Williams, the star of That’s Just Anson Being Anson, would strike up a conversation and you tell him all about your snake butt and your lost love and how it all happened because you didn’t know who Donny Most was and then he punches you in the mouth because he — of course — knows who Donny Most is, and then you realize — AT LONG LAST — how foolish you were for not knowing who Donny Most is. THAT, is what I hope the consequences are if you don’t know who Donny Most is, but anyway, here is the synopsis for Man of Steel, and below that is the new trailer, enjoy!

Synopsis that I copied and pasted here for you:

From Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures comes “Man of Steel”, starring Henry Cavill, directed by Zach Snyder. The film also stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Henry Lennix, Christopher Meloni and Laurence Fishburne.

Fans of the The Walking Dead have been witness to some new faces and shocking conclusions this season – and we’ve only just crossed the halfway point. Seeing as how the series has diverted from the comics there are some notable differences, but one fan favorite from the comics will be making his way to AMC.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creator Robert Kirkman teased the introduction of this new but already well-known character, saying:

“There’s a new character added. A big deal fan favorite from the comic book is introduced into the show in this episode, so be on the lookout for that,”

Check out just who it could be after the jump.

We’re now three episodes in to the third season of AMC’s The Walking Dead and it is time to meet the man who will undoubtedly serve as this years main protagonist. Spoiler alert!, he’s not a zombie. One of the most anticipated events of this season has to be the introduction of David Morrissey‘s character ‘The Governor’, combined with the return of Merle (Michael Rooker) and more Michonne (Danai Gurira.) Well, good news everyone! This episode has all 3 mixed in with a few surprises. We’ll dig deeper (and supply heavy spoilers) for ‘Walk With Me‘ after the jump.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 14th which means prepare for promotional onslaught! To begin with we ‘ve got these stunning, up close and personal portraits from the Huffington Post,

 

I’m so excited for people to meet Michonne. What’ll be weird, as well as interesting, is meeting Michonne through her interactions with Andrea and the Governor – whom Entertainment Weekly has some new shots of you can see below – as opposed to joining the group at the prison. In fact the whole switch up of having Andrea and Michonne separated from the group and set up in Woodbury in the first place is gonna be weird. But I’m excited to see what they do with this twist.

Danai Gurira , Laurie Holden, and David Morrissey, the actors responsible for Michonne, Andrea, and the Governor, also spoke to EW about their characters in Season 3.

Gurira: For Michonne, it’s the first time she has opened up since her trauma happened, which occurred at the beginning of the apocalypse. So Andrea is the first person she’s really been able to open up to, to love, to care for, take care of. I think there’s a lot of yearning in her humanity to be able to do that with somebody. And she’s found the person for her.

Holden: She asked a lot of questions at first and she was a bit wary, but the Governor is very seductive — in a calm, loving sense. If you look around, everybody seems happy; there are children playing ball with dogs, and pregnant women walking around happier than clams, and there are cellos in the street being set up for the blues band. It’s pretty idyllic.

Morrissey: People in the world that we inhabit need structure, they need to feel safe, and he provides that. And I think any leader of any community has to earn trust. And the idea of power is a really interesting idea of how people keep their power in a community. They keep it in all different ways. They can keep it by being generous, by facilitating your good life by giving you gifts. But they can also take those gifts away, they can be intimidating. They can be powerful, they can protect you from the enemy, whether that protection is just a fight or not, or whether they create the feeling of paranoia in order to suppress it. That is a great game that politicians and power-hungry people do. I think he does all those things. The world that has been created plays into his hands.

What are you most excited for this season?

 AMC and The Walking Dead, for almost three seasons, has had everyone on the edge of their seats fearing the dead. Now, according to the latest promos, the biggest thing to fear my be those left alive.

For the past two seasons, we’ve seen our survivors dealing with insurmountable odds. Most of the time it’s been due to the walkers or Shane losing his shit, or Carl not staying in the god damn house. Thankfully, though, one problem is fixed. SPOILER ALERT!!! Shane is no longer alive. And,  that’s changed the ground rules of survival for everyone: “Fight the dead. Fear the living.”

These three new trailers, as short as they are, offer a small taste of what’s to come in the upcoming season. And seeing as how someone always dies, it’s not a matter of what gets you this time around, but who.

A prison filled with Zombies, confined spaces, torturing us with the death of Dale again and The Governor deal with? Robert Kirkman is straight up being a damn tease. But, man, is it ever working on us. We’re so siked for this season.

The Walking Dead returns for season three Sunday, October 14th only on AMC.
