WATCH The Doctor Games

Posted by The Daily Zombies

When the two hottest pop culture properties of the past week collide.... Prepare for The Doctor Games, a humorous fan-made clip mashing Doctor Who and The Hunger Games into one. 



Last week, we saw the respective release of two pop culture properties on two related platforms to great reception... Namely,  BBC's centerpiece of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary celebration, the television special, Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor, and the second instalment of the Hollywood adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. And now from the brilliant minds of fans who came to this inspiring realization of a plot that we would love to see, prepare yourself for The Doctor Games with this cool faux trailer with this awesome concept (as explained by the maker of the clip, Brad Hansen):

"All 13 Doctors are forced into a battle royale by The Master and the Daleks in this R rated trailer spoof. WHO WILL WIN?"


Hit the jump to check out the clip pitting all twelve (hmm, or thirteen) Doctors in a fight to the finish.... you will be interested to know Who (all puns intended) will rise as the antagonist.  


WWF Zombies - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies

You may say your prayers, eat your vitamin and whatnot, but whatcha gonna do brother, when these 29 WWF Zombies run wild on you!? Courtesy of artist Scott Modrzynski, the Undead mashes with pro-wrestling once more. 



Earlier this month, we took a look at artist Scott Modrzynski's incredibly exhaustive piece of work rendering 1021 WWF wrestlers (from 1963 to 2001) to a minimized art style similar to pixel blocks of Minecraft. Obviously, the artist is a big fan of pro-wrestling and we got more confirmation on that point with this collection of water-color pieces mashing up the Undead with the WWF Superstars of yesteryears.

While the actual results of these water-colored pieces are mostly hit-and-miss, there is no doubt that they are labour of love and certainly something no self-respecting zombies and pro-wrestling fans should missed out witnessing. Hit the jump to check out all 29 pieces.

Star Trek: The Original Series by Dusty Abell

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Boldly go where no man has gone before with this awe-inspiring rendition courtesy of artist Dusty Abell as he takes on one of the beloved pop culture properties ever... Star Trek: The Original Series. 



"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before."

Narrated by Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, the iconic phrase of Star Trek's introductory sequence is every bit as timeless and unforgettable as the incredible franchise that the original Star Trek television series that inspired it. Sharing our affection for the 1960s run of what we have come to acknowledge as Star Trek: The Original Series, artist Dusty Abell conjures a truly mesmerizing, not to mention incredibly immersive, tribute to the series with an awesome graphic rendition featuring as many characters, starships, and entities that he can gather in one place.

In the artist's own words:


"This piece is for all the Original Star Trek fans out there like me...... I've been working on this for a while now and I'm happy to finally get to share it with people. Definitely a labor of love this one and SO much fun to do at the same time. I was trying to think about the first time I could recall seeing the show when I was little and my best guess is it had to have been before I was 4 years old in 1973, because I distinctly remember being aware of the show before the animated series debuted in September of 73'. The series was probably more responsible than anything else in sparking my love of sci-fi and fantasy and i'll always be grateful that I grew up during its initial run in syndication. The trinity of Kirk/Spock/McCoy were the backbone and soul of the show for me. Individually they represented three distinct qualities whose interplay made for fascinating viewing..........Kirk the ethical leader, Spock the logical sounding board and McCoy the emotional confidant. The stories, both serious and whimsical captivated me, the production wowed me and the acting was always entertaining. I've included at least one, sometimes more, character, entity, starship or structure from every episode of the original series, 80 in all including the pilot, in this piece. I hope Trek fans enjoy this as much as I did making it, I'm pretty proud of it."

Happy Thanksgiving!



WATCH The Bent Bullet

Posted by The Daily Zombies

It's the 50th anniversary of the infamous assassination of John F. Kennedy this week, and it seems that the aged old mystery has finally been solved... Magneto did it, in accordance to this "Bent Bullet" theory in a viral promotion of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past


Back in June 2011, when we provided our Final Preview for director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, we were thrilled by Vaughn's pitch for the opening of a possible sequel:

"I've got some ideas for the opening for the next film. I thought it would be fun to open with the Kennedy Assassination, and we reveal that the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto. That would explain the physics of it, and we see that he's pissed off because Kennedy took all the credit for saving the world, and mutants weren't even mentioned. And we could go from there, and I've got some fun ideas about what other mutants to bring in. I don't want to tempt fate, though. If the film's a hit, of course I'd be interested. I really enjoyed making it."

Which brings us to the next magnum opus in the unexpectedly extended film franchise of 20th Century Fox adapting the adventures of Marvel's merry mutants: X-Men: Days of Future Past. With the somewhat convoluted storyline (considering the challenge of adapting it into a two-hour feature film) from one of the most popular story arcs of the X-Men's storied career, we can't help but wonder if the potentially engaging subplot of the magic bullet would remain in the sequel. 

And now thanks to this wonderful piece of viral marketing, we not only confirmed the existence of this exciting plot development but also get to have a glimpse at the direction of the plot (at least within the cinematic world's continuity). Do head over to the Bent Bullet viral site to read up on more details. In the meantime, hit the jump to check out the viral clip.


Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring an incredible ensemble cast featuring Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Boo Boo Stewart, X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently scheduled to hit the theaters on May 23, 2014.

Transformers: Age of Extinction - First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Courtesy of the upcoming January issue of Empire Magazine, here's your First Look at Transformers: Age of Extinction with the new and improved (?) Optimus Prime front and center on the cover of Empire Magazine hitting the stands this week. 


While we have read enough news of the "all new, all different" cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there is no doubt that what everybody really care about is not how Mark Wahlberg or Li Bingbing looked in Michael Bay's next chapter of his abysmally reviewed yet best-selling live-action adaptation film series of Transformers. Thanks to Empire Magazine, who will be featuring the film front and center in their upcoming January issue set to hit the stands this week, we finally have our first actual look at the film instead of some official images featuring some cumbersome humans (that will come after the jump).

Without further ado, here's the cover featuring the "new and improved" Optimus Prime that actually seemed worse for wear.


And for the cumbersome humans featured in the first official image with Wahlberg and Bay himself among numerous other cast and production crew members.


For those who have not checked out the first poster of the film, hit the jump to check out the standard issue first teaser poster with a logo.


Starring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing, Transformers: Age of Extinction is currently scheduled to be released on 27th June, 2014.

Only Lovers Left Alive: Japanese Trailer & New Poster - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies

This Undead Monday, we revisit Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive with an intriguing new look at the "crypto-vampire love story" with the release of its Japanese trailer. 



Having covered acclaimed indie film-maker Jim Jarmusch's latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive, previously with our first and second look generating positive vibe by the hypnotic ambience of the film that has been described by Jarmusch as a "crypto-vampire love story", we remained to be intrigued by the vampire romance comedy featuring the impeccable Tom Hiddleton and Tilda Swinton as a pair of vampire lovers.

The first trailer was no doubt spine-tinglingly tasteful and with the recently-released Japanese trailer, the subtly vibrant score by award-winning Dutch musician Jozef van Wissem once again came into an inspiring effect. Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer.



And here's what Jarmusch has to say about the film during its Cannes premiere:

Only Lovers Left Alive is an unconventional love story between a man and a woman, Adam and Eve. (My script was partially inspired by the last book published by Mark Twain: The Diaries of Adam and Eve — though no direct reference to the book is made other than the character’s names.)  These two lovers are archetypal outsiders, classic bohemians, extremely intelligent and sophisticated — yet still in full possession of their animal instincts. They have traveled the world and experienced many remarkable things, always inhabiting the shadowed margins of society. And, like their own love story, their particular perspective on human history spans centuries — because they happen to be vampires.

But this is not your usual vampire story. Set in the very distinct cities of Detroit and Tangier, and taking place almost entirely at night, Adam and Eve must have human blood to survive. But they now live in then world of the 21st century where biting the neck of a stranger would be reckless and regressive — for survival, they must be certain the blood that sustains them is pure and free of disease or contamination. And, almost like shadows, they have learned long ago to deftly avoid the attention of any authorities.

For our film, the vampire is a resonant metaphor — a way to frame the deeper intentions of the story. This is a love story, but also the story of two exceptional outsiders who, given their unusual circumstances, have a vast overview of human and natural history, including stunning achievements and tragic and brutal failures. Adam and Eve are themselves metaphors for the present state of human life — they are fragile and endangered, susceptible to natural forces, and to the shortsighted behavior of those in power.

The recently-released Russian poster for the film.

And yet another of its subtly designed poster.


Here are some of the recently-unveiled official images from the film.



Here's the synopsis of the film:


Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover.

Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Only Lovers Left Alive is currently scheduled for limited release come April next year.

Sherlock Season Three: New Teaser Trailer

Posted by The Daily Zombies

#sherlocklives. The wait is almost over. 



There are some things in life that one can't wait for it to happen for the very fear that one does not survive long enough to see it. For example, they can be the series finale of J.J. Abrams' Lost, the first episode of the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars, The Phantom Menace (heh, we all know how that turned out), or the first cinematic assembly of Marvel's The Avengers. 


While one can argue that the current properties that meet this prestigious criteria are the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII by Abrams, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, or the first-ever cinematic team-up of the World's Finest (that's Superman and Batman for the uninformed), in our mind, the most pressing property that we just can't wait to witness would be BBC's Sherlock season three. We have to know how Sherlock pull that "spoilery-galore"thing off.


While the earlier-released teaser trailer is incredibly torturous with its short runtime to whet our appetite, a new teaser that is equally short has been released by BBC to coincide the airing of Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor. Well, beggars can't be choosers. Hit the jump to check out the cool teaser trailer.






While we do know for a fact that PBS will be premiering season three in the US on January 19th, the UK air date is still uncertain. Nevertheless, since the BBC has first window rights to the show, it is highly unlikely that BBC will be airing the season any later than January 19th.


Earlier on this month, BBC has also released the first image from the much-anticipated season.

Here's the official press release by BBC to accompany the image:

With anticipation building around the return of Sherlock, BBC One has today released the first official picture of the new series.

The question on everyone’s lips will finally be answered when Sherlock returns with three brand-new action-packed adventures. How did he do it? And how will John take the news that his best friend faked his own death? What will Sherlock think when he finds out John has fallen in love with Mary Morstan? She’s sensible, quick-witted and not at all taken in by Sherlock’s posturing. Once again, the game is on for Sherlock and John in the first episode of the new series, The Empty Hearse written by Mark Gatiss.

Speaking about the return of the series, executive producer, writer and co-creator Steven Moffat said: “It’s been a long time since Sherlock Holmes jumped off that roof – it’s time to reveal the truth about what happened between him and the pavement.”

Executive producer, writer and co-creator Mark Gatiss added: “Sherlock and John Watson are back at last! And they’re just where we want them – on the streets of London having mad, thrilling adventures.”

Sherlock is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock is produced by Sue Vertue and the executive producers are Beryl Vertue, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for Hartswood Films, Bethan Jones for the BBC and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece.

The drama was commissioned by Danny Cohen, former Controller of BBC One (now Director of BBC Television) and Ben Stephenson Controller, Drama Commissioning, BBC.
