‘Damien’ Trailer: Bradley James Is a Reluctant Antichrist in A&E’s ‘The Omen’ Sequel Series

by Jacob Hall July 10, 2015 @ 9:11 AM
The first Damien trailer shows off a series that’s playing straight into one of the stranger trends in modern entertainment — the sequel to an original story which ignores the sequels that already exists. A&E’s new show is a sequel to the 1976 horror classic The Omen, but it totally ignores all three follow-ups in favor of telling a brand new story. And that may be a good thing, because the sequels to The Omen are terrrrible and Damien looks like perfectly adequate television.

‘Jurassic World’ Attraction at Universal Studios Allows You to Encounter a Raptor

by Jacob Hall July 9, 2015 @ 9:51 AM
If Universal had know that Jurassic World was going to shatter box office records and quickly become one of the highest grossing movies of all time, they probably would’ve planned a massive new attraction for their theme parks. But seemingly no one, not even the people who made it, predicted that the fourth film in the beloved series would do this kind of business. While there isn’t a brand new ride or show to capitalize on the success of the new movie, Universal Studios has introduced a very cool velociraptor meet-and-greet, which allows guests to meet the deadliest predator in history...and have their picture taken with it.

by Jacob Hall July 8, 2015 @ 1:36 PM
No one on The Walking Dead ever looks happy or in good health, so it’s appropriate that the latest image from the show’s sixth season showcases Andrew Lincoln and some fresh battle scars. To be fair, Rick Grimes does look a little better than he has in past seasons. That crazy look in his eyes vanished along with the beard (but you just know it’s always ready to return at the drop of hat).
