In The Flesh - Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey

What is going to happen in the aftermath of an actual catastrophic Zombie Apocalypse when a cure has been found? BBC explores the grim and gritty Post-Zombie Apocalypse with In The Flesh, easily one of the most innovative high-concept television series we have seen in a while. 



Being obvious enthusiasts of the zombie sub-culture here at The Daily Zombies, we find 2013 to be a particularly intriguing year for zombie, as a sub-genre of horror. From the continued success of AMC's consistently ratings records-breaking live-action TV adaptation of the popular comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead, the modest zom-rom-com (Zombie Romantic Comedy) Warm Bodies, directed by Jonathan Levine and based on Isaac Marion's popular novel of the same name, World War Z, the upcoming live action adaptation of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by German-Swiss film-maker Marc Forster and actor Brad Pitt, to "Cargo," the deeply moving short film directed by Australian film-makers Ben Howling & Yolanda Ramke, 2013 has been stellar for the undead. And now, we have BBC's incredibly original and innovative three-part television series, In the Flesh, bringing the zombie sub-culture to a bold new realm as writer/creator Dominic Mitchell seek to answer the question: What is going to happen in the aftermath of an actual catastrophic Zombie Apocalypse when a cure has been found? And as one can imagine, it certainly isn't happily ever after.


Here's the extremely crisp official description of the television series: "Set after a zombie uprising, treated zombies are rehabilitated back into society."


Exploring the story of Kieran, a rehabilitated zombie recovered from the "Partially Diseased Syndrome" (PDS) who has returned to his family alive and kicking (with the aid of prosthetic make-ups to help others in accepting him) but wrecked with guilt over what he did during his time as a full-fledged zombie. But will the small town he lived and grown up in accept him with open arms? Are the demons purely from the sins of his undead past or are there something else, waiting in silence for the opportunity to revert the natural order of the world? Who is the victim and who is the monster: the reformed zombie or the vengeful human?


Taking on what we only glimpsed in a light-hearted manner in Edgar Wright' 2004 zombie comedy Shawn of the Dead and Warm Bodies, In the Flesh is incredibly original and we can't wait to check out the critically acclaimed television series when it hit US next week on BBC America.

The promotional clips for the television series.


Here's the full official synopsis fo the television series:



It follows zombie teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) and his reintegration back into both the local community and the heart of his family. After his suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they'd never see Kieren again. But shortly after his funeral, thousands rose from the dead; and after months of rehabilitation and medication, the zombies - now known as PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers - are gradually being returned to their homes. When Kieran arrives, he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and haunting flashbacks of what he did in his untreated state.

Man of Steel by Paul Shipper

Posted by Grey

New Zealand artist Paul Shipper brings Zack Snyder's vision of the Superman to life in this stunning take of the upcoming film.   


We have earlier witnessed the brilliance of Paul Shipper with the British artist's involvement with both The Print Posse to rejuvenate the stale state of any noteworthy graphic presentation for Star Trek Into Darkness with their unofficial posters as well as the cool Walt Disney piece in Hero Complex Gallery’s Oscar Legends Show. Contributing to Hero Complex Gallery’s recent show, Arch Nemesis, the artist has done it again.

Taking on Man of Steel, the much-anticipated film directed by Zack Snyder with an ambitious new take on the original superhero icon himself, Superman, Paul Shipper brought his A-game into this stunning new print. Hit the jump to check out the piece as well as the artist's insight on the print.

From the words of the artist himself:


A daunting prospect for me was figuring out how to tackle this. I knew I really wanted to do a film poster style illustration featuring the new Superman, but figuring out how to go about it, the designing of the poster layout...

Something about Superman and the awesome legacy that we all know and love makes it hard to touch and I have to say, Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and Hans Zimmer, scoring the movie, along with everyone on the production, they all deserve massive credit from what I have seen and heard so far. They honour the Characters, the Story, the Legacy with a new spin and look that is quite different but I have totally bought into it. And so, I really wanted to try and give this poster art a feel of the new film but a different look and an alternative to the photographic posters that are being used to promote the film.

I thought about it for a long while, toying with so many ideas, that just didnt cut it - was I trying to be too clever...? then it hit me. It's the Man Of Steel...! I need Superman, front and centre, looking hard as... 'Steel'... and that was the best place for me to start.


I really wanted to show Superman's heritage, a little of where he came from, his birth Parents on Krypton and also his relationship with his Father on Earth - these are the foundations of who Superman or Kal-El is and grows to become. It was important for me to have it in there. Scouring the internet for reference material, there actually wasn't that much to my surprise, so I did the best with what I could. I can not wait for this movie, the trailer is possibly one of the greatest ever created... Bring on the Man of Steel!!


Here's the official synopsis of the film:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel is currently scheduled to be released in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 14, 2013.

The Lone Ranger: New Trailer & Posters

Posted by Grey

We continue our coverage on the tentpole blockbuster films this Summer with yet another new trailer of Gore Verbinski's upcoming film adaptation of The Lone Ranger as well as a couple more posters from the film featuring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in the roles of respectively, The Lone Ranger and Tonto.  


We know by now how silly it was for us to buy the fact that the previous trailer of Disney's upcoming action western film, The Lone Ranger, is actually the final one. Featuring both Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in the roles of respectively, The Lone Ranger and Tonto, director Gore Verbinsky's modern retelling of the adventures of the eponymous iconic American Old West hero will be hitting the big screen in July. Given the intense competition between the tentpole films from major Hollywood film studios this Summer, we certainly expect a more intensified battle with their respective marketing campaigns.

In this new trailer of the film, we see a more action-centric take with the sweeping vision of the Old West intact. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer.


And here are the new posters released for the film.



The international posters.







Here’s the synopsis for the film:

“The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

Starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carte, The Lone Ranger is currently scheduled for an open date on July 3, 2013.

Posted by Grey

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Superman, DC Comics will be releasing an all-new ongoing series written by Scott Snyder with art by Jim Lee. The Daily Zombies takes a look at the ten variant covers of the first issue by a remarkable gallery of artists. 


Since first appearing on the newsstands in Action Comics #1 in June 1938, the Man of Steel has been one of the most recognizable cultural icons.  As Superman turns 75 this year, a series of plans will be in place to celebrate the occasion. Needless to say, right on top of that list would be Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, the upcoming cinematic adaptation of the iconic comic book character.

Putting together their efforts in commemorating the occasion, DC Comics will be releasing an all-new ongoing comic book series featuring the Man of Steel himself, Superman Unchained. Featuring the superstar creative forces of writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Lee, Superman Unchained is currently set to be released in June. In celebration of the launch, ten artists have been commissioned to provide their respective take of the comic book icon to depict Superman throughout the decades from the Golden Age, Silver Age, to the most recent new 52 status.

Easily one of our most anticipated films this Summer, The World’s End will be hitting the big screens first in UK this July followed by its US release in August. We have checked out the first trailer of the long-awaited final chapter of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy in our First Look at the film.

And here are the new posters for the film, with Rosamund Pike thrown into the mix.






Here's the official synopsis of the film:

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again.  They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End.  As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s.  Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.


The World’s End is currently scheduled to be released in the UK on August 14 and in the US on October 25.


Metallica: Through the Never - First Look

Posted by Grey

Hitting the big screens this August, we take a First Look at Metallica: Through the Never with the release of the first trailer of the 3D IMAX concert film featuring the legendary heavy metal band.  


"All that is, ever 
Ever was 
Will be ever 
Twisting 
Turning 

Through the never"

"Through the Never" might be considered by many to be just another one of the B-side track of one of the best-selling albums in history, Metalica, the eponymous fifth studio album of the legendary heavy metal band (also affectionately known as the black album), but come this Summer, Through the Never takes on a special meaning as the title of the first 3D IMAX concert film featuring Metallica. Directed by Nimród Antal, the writer-director behind 2010's Predators, the film will be comprising both concert footage from a set of concerts held in 2012 as well as a surreal adventure starring Dane DeHaan (the creepy kid from Chronicle and Harry Osborn in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man) as a band crew member on an urgent mission that develop into a set of catastrophic circumstances.

In an interview with Collider, DeHaan described the unique film in a nutshell:


“It’s in a way like a 3D concert movie but there’s also this narrative that ties together all the footage.  It’s gonna be, first of all, really rock and roll and really ‘Metallica’ for lack of a better word; they don’t hold back at all.  But during the concert I basically go on this trip as a roadie for the band and I pretty much literally have to go through hell and back to take it back to them, and all of this is going on during the concert so it all ties together really kind of beautifully and uniquely.  It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before; it’s almost like a concert movie meets The Wallmeets Metallica… We filmed it last August.”

The film will first be released in IMAX theaters in August, followed by its official release in normal theaters in 3D.


While Through the Never is not in my opinion anywhere near the Top 13 Metallica Track Ever (gotta work on that list some time in the future), it was put into great effect in the trailer which translated the impressive scope of the concert film. Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer.



The first image from the film.


The first poster of the film.



Here’s the official synopsis for the film:


Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.


WATCH Spock Vs. Spock in The Challenge

Posted by Grey

It's New Spock vs. Old Spock (or Spock Prime as what they called him now) as Zachary Quinto takes on Leonard Nimoy in a new Audi advertisement. 



Here at The Daily Zombies, we are characteristically sardonic old bastards down with some forms of a sociopathic mentality and dead set against capitalism and by association, commercialism. That said, we love our fair share of awesome advertisement here and have chronicled some of the most intriguing ones from Bumblebee wreaking havoc to sell (what else) Chevrolet, to  a young Lord Vader selling us Volkswagen, to Jean Reno's batshit insane turn as Doraemon.

Here to add on to the list and to also coincide with the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, we have New Spock taking on Old Spock (or Spock Prime as what they called him now) as Zachary Quinto brings "The Challenge" to Leonard Nimoy in a new Audi advertisement. No prize for guessing who wins this one.

The Wolverine: New Trailers, Posters & Images

Posted by Grey

With James Mangold's The Wolverine hitting the big screen in July, 20th Century Fox's marketing campaign is hitting a high note with the release of a slew of trailers, posters and images. 


The Summer of 2013 rages on with more superheroes as 20th Century Fox join in the fray come July to  extend their prolific franchise featuring Marvel Comics' merry mutants. In Hugh Jackman's sixth outing (we are counting his scene-stealing cameo in X-Men: First Class here) as Logan, the eponymous Wolverine, the wildly popular Marvel character travels to the far east with his immortality at stake, for better or worse. We have earlier saw 20th Century Fox's marketing department picking up their pace with their marketing efforts for what is no doubt one of the tent-pole blockbuster films of the year (no matter what perception you might have for the train-wreck known as X-Men Origins: Wolverine) with the release of the trailers. To further whet your appetite for some mutant mayhem, here's the first trailer that actually provided us with the first sneak preview of the antagonist of the film, the Silver Samurai.

Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the latest trailer.


Missed the bigger and badder Silver Samurai? You shouldn't but here's a screenshot of that image.


And here are two other international trailers for the film with the first one from CinemaCon and the latter appropriately from Japan.

And here are the new posters and banners for the film.




We have earlier covered on the impressive ancient Japanese painting-style poster featuring Logan. Here to round up the series are the posters done in the same style for the friends and foes of The Wolverine.

Here are some official set images from the film. While the main bulk were featured in our earlier coverage, these are the high-resolution versions of the lot.



















Courtesy of James Mangold's Twitter account, here are more exclusive set images from the film.







Here’s the official synopsis for the film: 

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

The Wolverine is currently scheduled to be released on July 26, 2013.
