For my friends in Britain, they are going to be getting a special treat for Halloween. The U.S. cut of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining will play in theaters over seas for the first time. A brand new trailer should be playing any day now for the film.
THE WALKING DEAD
For it's upcoming season 3 premiere, AMC has released a new promo image that shows some new and some older characters. Also, while talking about The Walking Dead, creator Robert Kirkman let slip that Rick actually might keep both his hands after all unlike in the comic.
The South Korean film Doomsday Book has won the Cheval Noir Award at the Fantasia International Film Festival this year. Doomsday Book is an anthology movie, split into 3 different chapters. The first Chapter, entitled Heaven's Creation, is about a robot who comes alive and follows what happens afterward. The second Chapter, entitled The New Generation, is a story from the point of view of a boy who is now a zombie. The third Chapter, entitled Happy Birthday, re-interprets "The Christmas Gift" by O Henry.
It looks like Joss Whedon will be back in the director's chair for the sequel to the blockbuster film Avengers. On top of this, it seems as if Whedon will also participate in the development of ABC's live-action Marvel Universe series. It will be nice to see Whedon working back on TV again, now if only we can see something in the Firefly universe again.
