There’s a new, R-rated trailer for Zombieland. Naturally, I embedded it for you after the break. (Sci Fi Wire)

I hadn’t seen anything to make me think so before, but the Dylan Dog comic-to-film adaptation Dead of Night will have zombies, says this Q&A. (io9)

Japanese fantasy/zombie/martial arts epic Versus looks to be getting remade as an animated series. Quiet Earth has a few details and some concept art. (Quiet Earth)

The packaging for the Blu-ray edition of Shaun of the Dead has been revealed. It looks a lot like the DVD packaging, only with that funky Blu-ray size/shape and blue edging. Whoopee. Some details on extra features, too, which look suspiciously similar to the special features on my years-old DVD release. (DVD Active)

    I don’t think that I will bother with Shaun of the Dead on blu ray. I have my trusty old dvd copy and I just can’t see paying all of that $$$ for a cool blu box that it comes in.
    I bought PontyPool last week. I liked it, even though I am not a huge Bruce Mc Donald fan. Mind you, he is Canadian, and I do know someone that was in two of his previous movies (dreadful in my opinion), but PontyPool, I liked. I really liked it. I heard that is a three part set, and two more are coming. I truly think that it is a masterpiece of creepiness…

    Bah. I did it again. I am NOT a huge fan.

    EDIT: I fixed it for you :) – Cory
