After the break, check out the teaser trailer for the claymation epic ParaNorman which is brought to us by the very talented team behind Coraline. (Fused Film)

We’ve also got the trailer for the Uwe Boll produced flick Zombie Massacre after the break. He’s not directing this one, so it will be interesting to see how it’s received. (Worst Previews)

Bar owner and indie film maker Bryan Goff hope to be finished with his zombie movie Bloody Border sometime in January. I’m assuming the 2:00 AM drunk crowd will be used as both zombie and victim extras. (The Republic)

It’s been confirmed that director Craig Gillespie has walked away from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The rumor mill is pointing to budget issues and a lack of funding to make a proper film. (Deadline)

After the break, check out the “Sex, Blood, and Rock and Roll” grindhouse style trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw, which I think will be one of the best games of 2012 from what I’ve seen. (Dread Central)

If you’re looking to spice up your Halloween then you should check out these zombie themed pumpkin carving templates to terrify small children in your neighborhood. (Dread Central)

It’s just been confirmed that Johann Urb will play Leon Kennedy in the new Resident Evil movie. I have no idea who he is, and I’ve never seen a movie he’s been in, but I guess he looks like Leon Kennedy. (Kotaku)

October 8 is World Zombie Day so make sure to see if there’s any good zombie happenings in your hometown. (Examiner)

For those that live in The Walking Dead country (I.E. Atlanta, Georgia) the Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse is back for year two boasting a 100,000 square foot zombie playground. (Dread Central)

It looks like Blake Lively has passed on playing the lead role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I mean seriously, why did she pass? Her last movie was Green Lantern. I know I was bashing on her getting the offer, but really? REALLY? (Filmonic)

Fed-Ex recently did a pretty awesome commercial about the zombie apocalypse. You can check it out after the break, and also check out the cool behind the scenes video that goes with it. (Dread Central)

I figured they’d release them slowly, but apparently all of the new The Walking Dead webisodes are online and available to view. Check them out after the break. While you’re at it, check out these photos from episode one of the new season as well. (Dread Central)

Today’s Groupon (man I hate that name) is for a much discounted entry into the second annual zomBcon later this year in Seattle. It was pretty epic last year so if you’re going back, or even on the fence, this is the deal for you. It’s TODAY ONLY though, so go check it out after reading today’s news. (Buy Zombie)

So apparently after two or three awesome actresses (including Natalie Portman, the film’s producer) passed on the lead role of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, they’ve sent a call out to up and coming starlet Blake Lively. While I’m not a huge fan of her body of work, at least the movie is (possibly) back on track. (Bloody Disgusting)

I guess Resident Evil: Retribution is going to feature a lot of flashback scenes, because it’s just been confirmed that Michelle Rodriguez will be reprising her role from the original film. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out this nifty behind the scenes video on how the wardrobe for an undead extra in The Walking Dead comes together. (Buy Zombie)

If you’re in Nashville the weekend of October 8 then you have to check out the annual zombie walk which supports the Second Harvest food bank. It’s a fun event for a good cause. (The Oracle)

This is a really cool map that shows the general layout of zombie related media over the internet spread across the world. Definitely a good resource when z-day finally arrives. (The Guardian)

To make up for a lackluster news day yesterday we’ve got a ton of great content today and several videos. In an effort to save time, I’ll just point out now that all videos are after the break. Enjoy!

Here’s a first look at the zombies of World War Z. I hate to say it, but they look very bland compared to modern zombies. They look like leprosy afflicted Beatles impersonators. You be the judge. (io9)

They might only be ten seconds each, but check out four new clips from season two of The Walking Dead and anxiously await the start of the new season. (Buy Zombie)

If you’re like us, you’re really excited now that Fulci’s classic film Zombie is now on Blu-ray. Here’s a sweet video showing the level of detail that the effects team went through to make the movie a high definition masterpiece. (FEARnet)

In a recent interview, director Craig Gillespie said that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies would stay incredibly true to Austen’s original work, the only difference being the zombies. It’s sad that a parody book stays closer to the source material than World War Z. (LA Times)

Check out this cool preview for Key of Z, a zombie comic book co-created by one half of the band Coheed and Cambria. (Comic Book Resources)

While it’s not action packed, we’ve got some beautiful footage of the environments and time change effects for the upcoming Xbox Live MMO code named Class3. (FEARnet)

Graig Gillespie recently discussed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and told us he’s ready to start shooting early 2012. (indieWIRE)

Check out the second trailer for community game turned fright flick Humans vs. Zombies after the break. (Fangoria)

It seems like Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D will be an animated full CGI retelling of the classic Romero story. Check out the trailer after the break, and look forward to the fact that Tony Todd will be lending his voice to the project. (Worst Previews)

Rob Sholty, an indie filmmaker from Las Vegas, dropped us a line to a trailer for his first feature film Patient Zero, which he describes as “The Wrestler meets 28 Days Later“. He’s currently gathering funds through kickstarter if you want to pitch in, and you can check out the trailer after the break. It actually looks pretty damn cool…

According to a recent report actress Emma Stone was offered the lead role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but did not accept. This is only confirmed by one source at this time, but it’s another huge blow to an already troubled production. I hope Natalie Portman can get a refund. (Deadline)
