It’s hard not to get excited about the follow-up to 2014’s Godzilla. With last week seeing the release of the teaser and now the full trailer eeking its way out of Comic-Con, my little kid sensibilities are absolutely lighting up as I am getting very VERY excited about the desire to turn Legendary’s hit into a full fledged world building franchise. This is wish fulfillment cinema at its purest. With Millie Brown, Charles Dance, Vera Farmiga and a truly impressive cast rounding out the street creed for this, it was truly a shock to see kaiju heavy hitters mothra, rodan AND King Ghidora, WHICH, makes us wonder…what could they be holding back from us? I, for one, can’t wait to find out!

With so much news basically shaking the death rattle of this show its hard to get excited about a new season, We know that Lincoln is leaving so the fate of Rick Grimes is already decided. Looks like Maggie isn’t far behind.

I am old-school gamer and I immediately know just how cliche that sounds. In addition to my genesis, I have my genesis portable, me retron system and enough emulators to keep me busy well into the next decade. I love it then when I see the development of retro games and new developers’ enthusiasm for releasing their titles. Sasha Darko’s Sacred Line is no exception. Darko continues to release content for the 2015 release and is now offering a Witch House DLC for free on Twitter here.
So yeah, this one has been floating around for a while with seemingly a lot of confusion as to when it was going to be released and how it was going to be marketed. With Stanley Tucci, MAtt Smith and Natalie Dormer this looks like a win-win, but the studio’s lack of confidence has me skeptical as well.

I really do love this guy’s work. There is something so ethereal and yet so grounding about his work that the end result is nothing less than amazing. From the Verge article:
“Over the last couple of years, Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag has earned considerable acclaim for Tales from the Loop, a science fiction art book that juxtaposes a sense of nostalgia for the rural countryside against an alternate, futuristic past. Yesterday, Amazon ordered a series based on the book, to be adapted by Legion writer Nathaniel Halpern.
Variety reports that the project will be a co-production with Fox 21 Television Studios, which was responsible for such shows as Sons of Anarchy and American Crime Story. Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) will direct the pilot for the show and will be an executive producer. In 2013, Stålenhag told The Verge that his art was inspired by his childhood in rural Sweden and his love of the science fiction films he watched at the time. “The only difference in the world of my art and our world is that … ever since the early 20th century, attitudes and budgets were much more in favor of science and technology.” Sharon Tal Yguado, head of scripted genre programming for Amazon Studios, said that “Nathaniel is a gifted storyteller who shares our passion for creating soulful, human stories that push the boundaries of genre programming, and we’re thrilled to be working with him on this series.”
The author that brought you “Jack” in Shopping list 2 and “Unholy Trinity” in the Big Book of Bootleg Horror Volume IV now brings you an assortment of four tales that will leave your spine tingling and soul looking for redemption.

But there are others, too. The desperate and the lost. The cruel and the criminal.
Theirs is a world of roadside honky-tonks, truck stops, motels, and the empty miles between destinations. The unseen spaces.
And there are even stranger things. Places that aren’t on any map. Wayfaring terrors and haunted legends about which seasoned and road-weary travelers only whisper.
But those are just stories. Aren’t they?
Find out for yourself as you get behind the wheel with some of today’s finest authors of the dark and horrific as they bring you these harrowing tales from the road.
Tales that could only be spawned by the endless miles of America’s lost highways.
