The Resident Evil franchise had a pretty big week. Capcom released the first trailer for Resident Evil 6 and from the cut scenes and game play footage it looks like the story will be more of a return to the classic environment, with some new action elements that will be a welcome addition. Check it out after the break. (UberGizmo)
The trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution also dropped last week. Check it out after the break, along with a nice interview with Milla Jovovich. It looks like they’re pulling out all the stops on this one. EVERYONE from the previous films returns, and I’m still not sure how that’s possible, but I’m excited. (Hit Fix)
Indie zombie flick Zompocalypso failed to raise the then thousand it needed for production on Kickstarter so now
they’ve moved to a new fundraising site in hopes of making twenty four thousand. (Edit: here’s the actual fundraising site, per comment below: http://www.indiegogo.com/CORNBRED)Â That’s not really how it works, but I wish them the best of luck. I’d link to their trailer, but it’s listed as private on youtube. (Patch)
Here’s a nice write up of the Murfreesboro Anime and Comic Con that I was at this past weekend. None of you came to buy my books, so I’m disappointed in all of you… Shameless plugs aside, the real star of the con was Madison Lintz who plays Sophia on The Walking Dead. I got the chance to speak with her and she’s genuinely a cool, down to earth actress. (Murfreesboro Post)
Zombies vs Robots has been a pretty good seller for IDW comics and they’re capitalizing on that by releasing some direct download digital comics for .99 cents a piece through several e-reader formats. (Comic Book Resources)
After the break, check out a teaser and the pilot episode from the upcoming zombie webseries Livin’ With Steve, an animated comedy that looks better than most of the Fox networks Sunday night lineup. (Horror Movies Canada)
