The Walking Dead - Season 6

We are less than two weeks until the new season of The Walking Dead and I couldn’t be more excited! If like me you are having trouble with the wait, thankfully there are a lot of new goodies to fill the time.

First up, the cast chats about their expectations in the new season in this behind the scenes clip. The video features Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Greg Nicotero (Executive Producer), Denise Huth (Co-Executive Producer), and others.

In addition to new video, we have multiple new galleries of images. The first one is new images from the season 6 along with promo images of the cast. And the second one is a really cool gallery of character portraits. I love the current cast and I’m so happy that they have announced that Jesus will be joining the cast in the new season. From his first appearance, Jesus has been one of my favorite characters in the comic (filling the void left by SPOILER? Tyrese’s death for me). They cast Tom Payne in the role, I haven’t seen his past work, but he sure looks the part!

What do you hope to see in the new season?

Logo - 5Ws & How

We are very excited to launch our all new Indie Film column, The 5Ws & How, aimed at increasing awareness of completed independent films and how you can see them by getting the most basic info that journalists look for (hence our movie journalists and reporters on the column’s banner).

First up we talked to Evan Bass, who wrote, produced, and acted in the independent thriller, The Eve.

TheEve-Still-Beach

Who?
The Eve stars Al Thompson (Scott), Miranda Noelle Wilson (Lacey), Maria DiDomenico (Jenn), Rick Estabrook (Joey), and is written by and also stars Evan Bass (Harry). It is deftly directed by Ritchie Steven Filippi in his directing feature film debut and released by Indie Rights.

TheEve_Harry

What?
The Eve is the story of a group of late-20-something friends who used to be close in college but have grown apart over the years since. They decide to reconnect by spending New Year’s Eve on Martha’s Vineyard at one of the group’s family’s house. Unfortunately, it is not as blissful a reunion as they would have liked and tensions take a turn and an unwanted presence turns celebrating the New Year into surviving the night. It is a mix of classic thriller with homages to past movies and small humorous nods to the genre throughout.

TheEve-Docks2

Where?
The film takes place on Martha’s Vineyard, of course, down a secluded dirt road at a house by the water. The Eve was shot on location in Martha’s Vineyard, and one subtle horror nod within the film is a scene filmed in Menemsha on the same dock that one of the original Jaws scenes was filmed.

TheEve-ModernHorrors1

When?
Like all indie filmmaking, The Eve took a while to go from initial filming to completion and distribution. Principal photography for the film was shot in January of 2011, with additional photography in April of that same year. The film was released on VOD in April of 2015.

TheEve-ModernHorrors3

Why?
With indie filmmaking there is always a many-fold reason for a project. For The Eve, we wanted to make a film that was different than the normal gore porn and late teens/early 20s frolicking on the beach type films, and make one with a little more character development. With that, we tried to focus on grounding the film in a reality that the viewer could believe is credible and would allow an audience member to be with the characters every step of the action. We also just wanted to make a film and do it justice. A lot of the crew and behind-the-scenes members working on this project stepped up a level to work on this production. For many, this was either a larger role in a feature or a challenge they were taking on — and we did film an entire feature in the middle of winter on an island whose weather changed by the hour.

TheEve-Joey

How?
The Eve can be seen on iTunes, Vudu, xBox Live, Playstation Networks, Amazon, Google Play, and YouTube Rentals. The movie will be further shopped around for distribution at this year’s AFM and more in-depth information can always be found at TheEveMovie.com.

The Monuments Men

The film is based on a documentary book by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter. It is all about the greatest treasure hunt in history. Events unfold in the years of World War II, when Adolf Hitler came to power. He visited Italy and was just amazed at the beauty of this city. Perhaps at this time he decided to assemble the largest collection of art objects. Whatever it was, his art critics were secretly conducting an inventory of museum treasures from various European cities. Well, everyone knows about what happened to these values ??in the future: the agents of the Third Reich did not disregard any museum or private collection.

However, The Monuments Men (2014) movie tells not about them, but the heroes of the war who are rarely mentioned in history books. This is the story of the art critics who voluntarily put on uniforms to move with the army often being on the front line to save the works of Rubens and Vermeer, Rembrandt and Van Dyck. The search for these treasures demanded from them not only courage, but also exceptional detective abilities. That is why the film based on the documentary book (very wittily written), turned out to be more fascinating than any thriller. Great cast, interesting directorial finds, beautiful camera work – this is something that is worth watching. It is one of the most important productions proposed in 2014. And it’s not just the artistic merits of the movie. It brings us back to one of the most important topics about which lately is not often remembered and used to say quite rare. Well, the story about courage – this is true in any era.

The Monuments Men is based on true events about the greatest worldwide hunt for precious treasures in the whole history. In those days when there was a severe war, some people who were engaged in a variety of art and artifacts would come together in a few groups in order to save at least something. For example, works of art of the greatest painters that somehow were stolen by the Nazis and the best part was specifically destroyed, but not all objects of art were destroyed, and before the Nazis have time to destroy them, they need to hurry. A small group of people need to have time and patience to find and to pick up all the expensive artifacts as quickly as possible.

George Clooney has left only the most famous masters: Michelangelo, Picasso, Rembrandt – in short, only recognizable “brands”. Clooney’s art critics behave as if they are not scientists, but enthusiastic amateurs: we won’t hear any curious and original thinking about the art. And when you consider that Clooney caricatured the stereotypes concerning his nationality in each character, it becomes clear that the film in front of us is intended to be a hit of the movie world. No more and no less.
