If you’re looking for a good way to spend the next ten to fifteen minutes, here’s the entire set of pictures and video from season two of The Walking Dead that’s currently available. (Examiner)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, after the break check out this amazing fan made teaser trailer for season two. Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd have actually confirmed this to be fan made, for all of you who doubt it. Let’s hope the creator ends up with a job at AMC. (Dread Central)

Milla Jovovich recently discussed some zombie related nightmares that have come from years of shooting Resident Evil movies. Maybe she’ll weigh in with her thoughts on Cory’s The Zombie Dream article. (Digital Spy)

There’s finally a proper trailer for Cuba’s newest export Juan of the Dead. Check it out after the break. (Slash Film)

So the amazing bonus pre-order content for Dead Island is going to be… a digital pdf of some of the game and concept art… I think it might be time to get off the island. (Kotaku)

In better gaming news, as per Valve’s challenge, within four hours enough users (roughly twenty thousand) beat the latest expansion for Left 4 Dead 2 and Valve is going to release the re-vamped map packs early. (Kotaku)

Actor Jesse Eisenberg dropped some rather disheartening information about the Zombieland sequel during a recent interview. At least the script is being worked on though. (Comic Book Movie)

Some very early set pics featuring a zombie torn World War Z have already surfaced. It’s good to see the production moving along quickly. (Shock Till You Drop)

Michael Bartlett sits down and discusses the Zombie Diaries 2 which hits DVD this month. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out some game play trailers for Dead Block, the zombie defense game that hits Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network this month. (Co-Optimus)

I honestly don’t know if this is meant to be a movie or not, but after the break check out this music video from the Zombeatles titled A Hard Day’s Night of the Living Dead. (Buy Zombie)

Frank Darabont is very, very talkative about this season of The Walking Dead, and seeing as how we’ve got another five months before we get to witness such an awesome television show I’m okay with that. (Daily Blam)

Well after a long run of good luck World War Z eventually had to be cursed as well. It seems that Matthew Fox and Ed Harris, the two most recent additions to the cast, are no longer going to be able to star in the film. (Vulture)

That Dead Island trailer that made the world go insane actually won the Gold Prize for Internet Film at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Let’s hope the game delivers as much as the trailer did. (Kotaku)

If you’re going to be in my hometown for Halloween, the Nashville (TN) Rescue Mission will be holding a “Zombie Buffet 5K” October 29. (Buy Zombie)

TRAILERS! TRAILERS! TRAILERS!

McFarlane toys recently unveiled the first series of their Walking Dead toy line based on the tv show rather than the comic book. I’ve got to say so far I’m liking them more than the comic book line released earlier this year. (Bloody Disgusting)

In local news (if you live in Scotland) the Dundee city council said, after prodding by a local resident, that unlike other cities recently mentioned in the news, if the threat of a zombie or vampire attack becomes a possible circumstance, the city would draft official plans to combat the problem. (STV.tv News)

While it’s mainly an interview about his latest masterpiece Super Dinosaur, Robert Kirkman also talks about The Walking Dead and how his children play into that story in this interview. (Wired)

We might have a long wait, but at least it’s official that Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges will be bringing us R.I.P.D. (based on the comic book series) in 2013. (Dread Central)

It looks like Greene’s farm is finally fully stocked as it was announced earlier that actors (with good science fiction backgrounds) have been cast to play Hershel Greene and his daughter Maggie (who will be a love interest for our favorite little courier Glenn) on season two of The Walking Dead. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out the first five minutes of the latest zombie flick Dead Genesis, which looks pretty good, with a dark sadness that we fell in love with during the Dead Island trailer. (Bloody Disgusting)

World War Z was in the news a fair amount today, and it looks like two more Hollywood heavy hitters are joining the cast. (The A.V. Club)

Well the list of theaters who will be showing a last minute surprise screening of Quarantine 2 has been released and we’re nowhere near any of them. DAMMIT! (Dread Central)

One concerned citizen polled his local government to see what plans they had to defend their citizens in case of a zombie apocalypse…. and then they answered. (The Register)

BYU has a car sharing program to make sure that students can get from point A to point B. In an effort to advertise it, they’ve campaigned a massive zombie public service announcement. (BYU Universe)

Dead Rising is still kicking, and one lucky reporter was able to get some hands on game play time with the latest expansion Off The Record. (Siliconera)

Can a one million dollar budget movie, with stars like Ron Pearlman and Lea Thompson attached to it, raise it’s funding on Kickstarter after the studios passed? The Gatekeeper just might be that movie. (Kik Axe Music)

Every now and then I come across a trailer that just refuels my faith in the zombie genre.

Want to see Quarantine 2 for free before it hits DVD? Well Fangoria is making that happen, but you’re gonna have to jump through a few hoops and send them an e-mail. (Fangoria)

Neal Wilkinson, one of the minds behind Fancy Dress Outfitters, sent us an e-mail to let us know that they’ve got a nice zombie survival toolkit infographic to promote their upcoming zombie costumes. It’s not really news, but it looks cool and if you asked them nicely they might sell you a print for your wall.

Helen Grace with Left Films also dropped us a line and a link to the trailer for UK fright flick Cowboys and Zombies (or The Dead and the Damned as it will be called in the US) and to let us know it will be out on DVD late July or early August, depending on which side of the pond you live on. Check out the trailer after the break.

Robert Kirkman finally stopped teasing us and unleashed the first picture from season two of The Walking Dead to his twitter fans. (Hollywood Reporter)

OMG NEWS! It’s been a huge news weekend and with the E3 show going on there’s a lot to cover, so I’m going to split things up into a few groups at times. Also all videos, as always, are after the break, just so I don’t have to keep typing it.

There was a ton of good news that came out of the E3 show just these last couple of days.

The Walking Dead has also been tearing up the internet as season two moves into production.

There wasn’t a shortage of movie news this weekend either.

And to wrap things up with a little humor, that awesome CDC article about zombie preparedness (which we reported day one, because Cory is just that awesome) has become so popular that it actually crashed the CDC blog last week. (Your Daily News Fix)

We’ve got a few shooting details for the Connecticut based zombie film Remains which begins production in June. (The Day)

After the break, check out the trailer for Ace the Zombie, about a recently infected member of the undead who’s fighting for his civil rights. (Dread Central)

The box art for Dead Island has finally been released after previous concepts were recalled due to graphic images. The new one is pretty graphic too but doesn’t have a zombie hanging from a tree. (Dread Central)

The Walking Dead is currently casting Hershel Greene, his daughter Maggie, and farmhand Otis for the new season of the popular zombie show. I guess that means season two takes place on Hershel’s farm. (Bloody Disgusting)

The popular Wii shooter House of the Dead: Overkill is coming to the PS3 using the new “move” controllers and promises a high definition, extra bloody, zombie shooting good time. (Kotaku)

Here’s a few more details and some nice quotes from the team that created I Am Lonely, the short film that won at Cannes this year. (Islington Gazette)

If you love fake history, or real history depending on how paranoid and gullible you are, then you’ll love Zombies vs. Nazis: A Lost History of the Walking Dead, a book which accurately describes the efforts of Hitler’s army to produce an army of undead soldiers during World War 2. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out a nice scene from Re-Animator: The Musical, which is what I call good theater. (FEARnet)
