If you saw one supernatural horror film this past weekend there is a solid chance it was "Paranormal Activity 2". The film had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever for the sub-genre with a chicken foot shattering $41.5 million. I know five naughty little podcasters who saw it and will be recording a show for it this week. See how that tied in? Wasn't that nice?

In honor of "The Walking Dead" finally hitting AMC this coming weekend the good people behind the series have released some new behind the scenes photos. The show looks awesome and I have nothing bad or sarcastic to say, which is strange and confusing to me. Thanks AMC, you made me hit puberty again.

For those of you waiting with baited breath for "Host 2" to be released you can now officially wet yourself because the sequel is going to be released in 3D! But now that you're all excited I should also mention that the 3D conversion will delay the film's release as well as change the overall logistics. Waaah!

Steven Spielberg has confirmed that he will be bringing "Robopocalypse" to the big screen in 2013. The film is based on a book by Daniel H. Wilson and focuses on the fate of humans after the robot uprising. Hopefully there will also be robot cops because I keep reading the title as "RoboCopOcalypse".

I know you kids think you're all to cool for television these days but get your rabbit ears out because "The Walking Dead" is coming to AMC on Halloween. In short the show is a 6 episode series based on the Robert Kirkman comic book that follows a cop leading a group of survivors after the zombie apocalypse breaks out. There's been about 6 million screen shots released for the show and now we've got a few new video clips. A trailer and a couple character profiles to be more specific.

Will Smith is set to drop beats, old school, as he signs on to The Legend of Cain, an epic story set around the biblical brothers Cain and Able. Smith will be playing Cain, the original badboy, with a vampiric bite.

Draco Malfoy a.k.a. Tom Felton is going to branch out from his bratty bad boy ways with a role in the 20th Century Fox sequel Rise of the Apes.

Are you a fan of elaborate special edition packages for your video game fix? You may want to check out the Zombrex Edition of Deadrising 2! For a fee of $79.99, you'll get the game as well as a heap of other shwag such as pens, notepads and more.

This past weekend AMC released the full list of writers and directors that will be heading up the first six episodes of "The Walking Dead".

Gore Verbinski has surfaced from the depths to talk about the delays surrounding the big screen adaptation of 2K Games "Bioshock", sighting troubles of maintaining a manageable budget while keeping a hard R rating.

AMC made clear some time ago that director Frank Darabont would only be directing the pilot of their epic undead series "The Walking Dead". As the production of the show hits full steam, AMC starts to look towards their next director with their sites set firmly on "Breaking Bad" helmer Michelle Maxwell McLaren.

Nobody knows for sure what the viral "Patient Zero" is advertising, but the postcards handed out to patrons of this weekend's Anime Expo are intriguing at least.

Who is Roger Jackson? He's none other than that gravely voice we hear on the phone whenever Ghostface calls to flirt with Drew Barrymore in the "Scream" movies. Not that it makes much of a difference on the outcome of "Scream 4", Mr. Jackson has officially signed on to reprise his role.

20th Century Fox is starting its prep-work for a surprise prequel, "Planet of the Apes: Caesar". Planned to be attached to the Tim Burton remake, the new film will be directed by Rupert Wyatt.

Somebody needs to check Lloyd Kauffman to make sure he hasn't dropped dead from sheer happiness. Dutch TV giant Endemol has acquired the rights to the Toxic Avenger. They have planned a staggering four films, an animated TV series and comic books as well as they prepare to relaunch Toxie as a new 'green' super hero for today's environmentally conscious world.

The big screen adaptation of video game hit Gears of War hits development snags. With the budget cuts and Len Wiseman leaving the team, the writers are now reshaping the film's plot for something more mundane.

AMC's "The Walking Dead" has found its leading man as they have cast Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes. Hailing from the UK, you may recognize Lincoln from his roles in "Love Actually" or the series "Strike Back". Or, you may be like me and never heard of him at all! That's not a bad thing though.

With "Hot Tub Time Machine" being a moderate success, director Steve Pink is taking aim at a horror comedy for his next project. "The Werewolves of Reseda" will chronicle the suburban lives of werewolves and how it makes their lives better.

With today's rough economy, even our favorite screen stars are feeling the pinch. That's why you can now find Jason, Freddy and Chucky in recent Burger King ads.

According to Production Weekly, "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov will be tackling a classic as he has signed on to direct "The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein". A recent novel by Peter Ackroyd, the story tells of the days when Victor Frankenstein meets the lovely poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Frank Darabont must be doing something right as AMC has ordered up six episodes of "The Walking Dead", which has yet to begin filming or even cast its main star.
