Middle-Earth Posters by Aaron Horkey, Nicolas Delort, Ken Taylor & Mondo - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Prepare yourself for the final journey to Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth with these incredible offering from Mondo and an ensemble of artists the likes of Aaron Horkey, Nicolas Delort, and Ken Taylor



With The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hitting the theatres this week, anticipation for the final journey into Middle-Earth, the cinematic fantasy world conjured by J. R. R. Tolkien, is at an all-time high. Just in time to coincide with the release of Peter Jackson's magnum opus for the prolonged prequel trilogy, Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, has tapped into their fantasy department to draw on incredible talents the likes of French artist Nicolas Delort and Australian artist Ken Taylor, and more importantly (in this particular case), the final entry in Aaron Horkey’s Lord of the Rings series that has been three years in the making.

With Taylor taking on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey while Delort took on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Horkey's The Fellowship of the Ring is perfectly consistent with his earlier two entry of the series both in terms of aesthetics and quality (we have featured The Two Tower earlier this year). All three posters are expected to be available online at a random time on tomorrow, December 16th. Check out all three of them below, followed by a look at the earlier entries in Horkey's LOTR series.

Street Fighter V: Capcom Cup Gameplay Trailer

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Capcom teases the long-awaited appearance of a veteran character in the latest trailer of Street Fighter V at the Capcom Cup.  




Last week, we had our First Look at the return of arguably the biggest fighting game franchise, Street Fighter, with the official announcement of Street Fighter V at the PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas. While we have had a good look at the lush enhanced 3D gameplay with a bout between Ryu and Chun-Li in the first official gameplay trailer, Capcom has provided us with yet another closer look at the gameplay actions with the release of the second gameplay trailer at the Capcom Cup. 

And if you think that is it, hang on till the very end to check out the teaser of the much-anticipated return of Charlie Nash. Longtime fans of the series will remembered Nash from the prequel series,  Street Fighter Alpha, and more importantly, part of the origin story behind Guile in the original Street Fighter. Chronologically, this would be the first reappearance of the character following his alleged demise that form the motivation of Guile to enter the World Warrior tournament to avenge his death at the hands of M. Bison.

Check out the trailer right below.



Release dates for Street Fighter V have not been announced as of now.

WATCH Stephen Colbert interview Smaug

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Brace yourself for the ultimate promotion for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Stephen Colbert interview Smaug (voiced by the impeccable Benedict Cumberbatch) on The Colbert Report. Nuff said. 



With The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hitting the theatres next week, the marketing department of Warner Bros. Pictures has been firing on all cylinders to ensure that the release of "The Defining" chapter of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy is etched on the consciousness of every undead mind. And today, we just witnessed the single most effective way of doing just that: Get Smaug the Magnificent on to The Colbert Report. Yes, we are talking about a stand-off between the "Wicked Worm" and one of the biggest Tolkien fanatics out there, Stephen Colbert himself.

With Colbert moving on to the Late Night show to take over David Letterman next year, The Colbert Report is on its last legs and thing just keep getting bigger with Barack Obama being the guest last week. So naturally, they have to get someone bigger than the President of the United States this week. Enter Smaug, as incredibly voiced by the recently-confirmed Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch, with some gut-busting bad language to boot. 

Rest assured that this will be the best clip you will be watching today or, if you are as big a Sherlock fan as us here at The Daily Zombies, for a very very long time. Check out the clip right below as Peter Jackson and crew gamely pull off the real deal in the hilarious interview.


And just so that you can get a sense of how big a Tolkien fan Colbert is, check out the covers of the latest copy of Entertainment Weekly with Colbert taking on the roles of Bilbo, Gandalf, and Legolas.





Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

The concluding chapter of The Hobbit trilogy,  The Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released on 17th December, 2014. 

Meanwhile, the final episode of The Colbert Report will air on the next day, 18th December.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Character Names Revealed

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly,  we get to put some names on the faces we have seen in the first trailer of J. J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens in quite possibly the most nostalgic way possible: Old-school Topps trading card-style. 



Late last month, we finally got our First Look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens with the release of the first teaser trailer of Episode VII of arguably the biggest sci-fi franchise ever. Nevertheless, being the secretive film-maker that J. J. Abrams is, and this being Star Wars after all, we never get to know more on what we witnessed. So all we get is a cryptic look with John Boyega in Stormtrooper get-up, Daisy Ridley racing away in what appeared to be Tatooine, Oscar Isaac in a X-Wing, and more important than everything else: An ominous figure wielding a next-generation lightsaber with an awesome-looking crossguard.

But now, in an unexpected marketing move, Abrams has unveiled the names of these characters in a collection of vintage Topps trading cards complete with somewhat grainy quality. Revealed exclusively through Entertainment Weekly, these cards let in on some cool information though some of the characters are conspicuously without a last name. In addition, Abrams answered yes when asked if there was significance of numbering of these "trading cards". More food for thought for the Star Wars fans.

Head over to Entertainment Weekly to learn more on their analysis on each images. In the meantime, check out these "trading cards" right below.

#11 — BB-8 on the move

• #53 — Poe Dameron in his X-Wing

• #67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber


• #74 — Rey on her Speeder


• #76 — Finn on the run

• #81 — Stormtroopers prepare for battle

• #88 — X-Wings in formation

 • #96 — The Millennium Falcon


Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opens in theaters December 18, 2015. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, and features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. The film is being produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk, and John Williams returns as the composer. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is Episode VII in the Star Wars Saga. 


Star Wars: The Force Awakens is currently set to be released on 18 December 2015.


Inside Out: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

As far as emotions are involved, we are more than certain that Pixar's next animated epic is on the way with Pete Docter back at helm on Inside Out, an animated film promising to take us to one particularly intriguing place: The world inside the human mind. With Pixar releasing the debut trailer of the film, we take a First Look at Inside Out. 




Much like 2012, we have repeatedly mentioned that 2015 will go down in the history books as one of the biggest year in cinema. Thus far, we have seen the trailers of two of the most anticipated films of 2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron, and of course, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And now we have our First Look at what is definitely shaping up to be, hands down, our most anticipated animated film of the year, Inside Out.


By now, we are almost passed 2014, a year without a Pixar animation, an annual tradition that have not been broken for a very long time. While we definitely appreciate the fact that Pixar decided to focus on their products instead of sticking to their traditions, we most certainly missed the presence of the animation giant though their sister product at Walt Disney Animation Studio, Big Hero 6, did more than a great job. Next year, for the first time ever, we will witness the release of not one but two Pixar animation features with Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur.


With the high concept of Inside Out and add to the fact that Pete Docter, who have previously brought us Monsters, Inc. and Up, we have no doubt that we are fully invested in the animated film featuring the voices of Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black, Bill Hader, and Phylis Smith. As Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear, and Sadness, respectively, as portrayed in a young girl's emotions. And that lead us back to the high concept part. Inside Out will be exploring the emotion spectrum of not just a young girl but the entire family as well (though I'm pretty damn sure the young girl is the central focus). 


Following the releases of a series of teaser trailers of each emotions, Pixar has released a full-length trailer that clearly illustrate the clever humor one would expect of the acclaimed animation studio as we look into the mind of not just the 11-year-old girl, Riley Anderson (Kaitlyn Dias), but the entire family, Daddy and Mommy, as well with Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane taking on the roles of the parents. 


You will have to check out the astounding trailer to follow up on how awesome it is in giving us a very sneak peek at the very emotional film. Case in point, Pete Docter has displayed to us how good he is with emotions thanks to the nerve-wrecking early scene in Up (like what my niece would say, the scene always brings a tear to the eye). Which is why we are in for a ride for what many have called a return to the peak for Pixar. 


Personally, I have to define a personal peak for Pixar. Pixar films have always moved me, from Monsters, Inc. to Finding Nemo, and Toy Story is no doubt a rare case where each instalments in the trilogy improved leaps and bounds when you don't expect it to due to the incredible standards it have set. So now, without further ado, check out the official full-length trailer of Inside Out, directed by Pete Docter and co-director Ronnie del Carmen.




And here are the teaser trailers.




For each emotions...




Here are the posters released thus far for the animated film.




The character poster set.





The international posters.


Images from the film.




And here's the official synopsis of the animated film.

From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all – inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

In the roles of the young girl's emotions; Amy Poehler as Joy, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, Lewis Black as Anger, Bill Hader as Fear, and Phyllis Smith as Sadness. Inside Out is currently scheduled for release on 19th June 2015.



San Andreas: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

What happen when The Rock meets the Natural Disaster? Apparently, that will be San Andreas. And this is our First Look at the disaster film with the release of the first trailer by Warner Bros. Pictures. 


First and foremost, this is not an adaptation of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. So, don't let the door hit you on your way out if you find yourself getting into a wrong article and having the profound intellect of determining that the classic game can ever get itself adapted into a live-action movie. 

So here we are at the unveiling of the "go-to" disaster movie of 2015, San Andreas, which depicted the San Andreas Fault in all its glory with one hell of a Hollywood presence. Why yes, our favorite WWE on-again-off-again legend, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And what a formidable line-up the film has assembled to respond to the incredible masculinity of the one and only Great One: From Carle Gugino, Alexandra Daddario (okay, that will get some undead vein pumping), and Kylie Minogue, we have a great Yin and Yang balance with this one in a greatly unbalanced disaster film. 

Without further ado, embrace yourself into the disaster as a helicopter rescue pilot work together with his ex-wife to recover their very, very hot daughter in this trailer. Warnings: it follows every single imaginable tropes in a disaster movie.


 

For fans of True Detective, we have a gratuitous shot of the trailer for good measure.

If you do not see the significance of that screenshot, just try to stay away.

Official images from the film.





Here's the official synopsis for the film:


After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter.


But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

Directed by Brad Peyton, San Andreas is set to be released in both 3D and 2D on 39th May 2015.



The Terminator by Gabz & Grey Matter Art

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Following last week's First Look at the upcoming Terminator Genisys, are you having a case of nostalgia? Polish artist Gabz and Grey Matter Art are here to help with an incredible take on The Terminator in an all-new diptych project with Judgement Day coming up next month. 



Just last week, we had our First Look at Terminator Genisys with the release of its first trailer by Paramount and while it doesn't look as bad as we have expected it (mostly thanks to Daenerys' charisma as a young chirpy Sarah Connor and the bad-ass T-100 portrayed by Lee Byung-hun), we are still pretty underwhelmed despite/because of the fact that the first two films in the Terminator franchise remained right up there on our favorite sci-fi films ever. If you are like us, then the effect most likely felt from the trailer would be nostalgia. Here to take advantage of that, Polish artist Grzegorz Domaradzki, better known as Gabz, is back to collaborate with Grey Matter Art for yet another awesome rendition of sci-fi epic following his take on John Carpenter’s 1981 classic film, “Escape From New York.”

Set to be the first part of a diptych, another piece for Terminator 2: Judgement Day will be out next month (that's next year by the way) to complete this ambitious project. Check out the print in its varying editions right below and follow Grey Matter Art on Twitter to track the release of these prints at a random time on 16th December between 1pm to 2pm, EST.

Here is the official press release from Grey Matter Art

Grey Matter Art under license from Studiocanal S.A. is proud to present a New Officially Licensed, Limited Edition, Screen Print Poster by Artist, Grzegorz Domaradzki (Gabz) for the iconic film, “The Terminator." This will be the first in a 2 poster set with "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" following the month after by Gabz as well, to form a dyptich. Grey Matter Art is extremely excited to release this poster as Gabz has done a phenomenal job representing both films. Below are images and details on the poster for"The Terminator." 

"Doing this project meant a lot to both Jared and I the moment we were able to acquire the rights to do a poster for both Terminator films. We have always been such big fans of this Franchise, and to have the opportunity to do a poster for both movies, was an honor. This is our 3rd poster collaboration to release with artist Gabz, and we really work so well together. He seems to know exactly what us and other poster collectors are looking for, and delivers every time. I think Gabz depicted this movie very well, and finally gave us the epic Terminator poster we have been waiting for. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we had making it."
Mike-

"The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" are both one of those movies I always wanted to work on, so when Mike Gregory from Grey Matter Art approached me with the offer, it was like a dream come true. I wanted something with strong imagery, action packed, and with a glimpse of the future as seen in both movies. While I'm hoping the artworks will speak for themselves, two things worth pointing out is that the general concept was inspired by an interview with James Cameron I read a while back, in which he stated that he had a dream about a cyborg/robot coming out of the flames, and as we all know the rest is pretty much a cinema history. The other thing I wanted, was to design both posters to form a diptych."
Gabz-
