The Walking Dead willfully steered itself into some Game of Thrones-style set shenanigans, knowing that each and every actor sighting would set off a frenzy of speculation as to which cast member will end up on the other end of Negan’s bat, come Season 7. We might be able to cross off Daryl and Glenn, thanks to some off-set Georgia commotion, but let’s investigate, shall we?
We’ve seen Robot Chicken give the full-length parody treatment from Star Wars to DC comics a few times over, and now The Walking Dead will finally get its due. Robot Chicken will load its crossbow for a full special focused on the AMC zombie thriller, with Robert Kirkman aboard as well.
It’s that magical, terrifying time of year when series orders and cancellations go out; the new additions releasing their first photos and trailers.

And so, it begins. FOX already got the ball rolling on its new 2016 series with the order of 24: Legacy, and now a number of other reboots have taken hold.

Supernatural horror is all the rage these days, and Robert Kirkman’s Cinemax Outcast has a bit of work ahead to distinguish itself from the similar aesthetic of AMC’s Preacher. Thankfully, the latest trailer offers a bit more visual flair amid the scares, as does a brand new poster.
Honestly, it’s surprising it took this long for a studio to begin developing a horror movie based on Slender Man, the creepy meme that took on a prolific life of its own, inspiring countless photoshopped images, fan art, fan fiction and eventually a video game and a documentary. As rumored yesterday and confirmed today, Screen Gems is the studio that will finally put Slender Man on the big screen, though given how quickly things tend to age in internet years, you have to wonder if this horror movie will still feel relevant by the time it hits theaters.
Just yesterday we learned that Russell Crowe is in talks to play Dr. Jekyll opposite Tom Cruise in The Mummy, and while Universal has yet to confirm that casting, they have released the first official synopsis for the reboot.
