I spotted this before The Hobbit last night, and quite enjoyed it. It’s been out a while, but if you haven’t seen it yet:
Just because there hasn’t been enough Doctor Who material on here as of late, this needs to be posted. Settle down for the extended BBC America trailer of this years Christmas Special where my favourite Doctor Matt Smith will take his final bow.
Set for UK release April 18th 2014.

The good folks over in Middlesbrough, UK producing Chipped have created a 16 minute (ZERO BUDGET!!!) trailer for their show.
Not heard of it yet?
In brief, a group of unchipped rebels fight for survival against the hordes of chipped and against the fractured government remnants.
Set for release mid-2014, Chipped is a sci-fi post-apocalyptic series set ten years from now. Crime rates are a lot worse than they are now, as well as unemployment and a lack of benefits to go around. England is in complete chaos. The government decide to introduce the chip. It becomes compulsory. A chip is inserted into the brain and the government can track everyone via satellite and control the chaos. It works, England is at peace. The whole world then follows.
A year later the satellite becomes infected with a computer virus and everyone who has been chipped becomes a controlled killing machine. By who or what is unclear. We follow a gang of survivors who rebelled against the chipped and are now fighting just to stay alive.
Let’s be clear, this is not yet a professional production. They’re doing some fundraising at the moment to help them finish he show, and from the looks of what they’ve made so far, it’ll be a decent series.

DEVIL’S DUE is a chilling combination of Rosemary’s Baby and Paranormal Activity.
This suspenseful horror film is shot as “found footage”, from a first person perspective of the lead character, Zach, combined with surveillance and hidden cameras. DEVIL’S DUE tells the story of Zach and Samantha, a newlywed couple who experience a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon and shortly after find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. When Samantha starts showing odd behavior, she and Zach initially write it off to nerves, but as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.
Devil’s Due, coming to cinemas across the UK on 16th January 2014.
The very first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past has now landed. The 2014 film is adapted from the classic comics arc, and sees director Bryan Singer returning to the series.
The film is out next spring, and the first preview stills and trailer have just been dropped. Consider us excited.
The trailer sees Cap living in a world where the government is doing something dark and questionable. Huh.
He also appears to be a fully fledged SHIELD agent. The film takes a lot from the ‘Winter Soldier’ storyline in the comics, where Cap fights an unexpected enemy – an enemy he has met before he was frozen…

Zombie related TV shows, films and books have sprung up like, well, a Zombie plague outbreak of some kind, the BBC are throwing in their contribution to the outbreak with a 3 part series entitled In The Flesh.
“[In the Flesh] begins after the Zombie Uprising has been quelled by the Human Volunteer Force and life is starting to return to normal. Any surviving zombies have been captured, medicated, held in an NHS holding facility in Norfolk and are being slowly re-integrated back into society, with the help of contact lenses and cover up mousse. The story follows teenager Kieran Walker and boldly goes where no zombie drama has gone before.”
You can watch the trailer for the show below.
After watching the trailer I will admit that it got me a bit excited to be seeing a show take a different look at a Zombie Plague scenario, having said that I watched Warm Bodies last night a “rom com” about a zombie coming back to life kick-started by love of all things – I really didn’t enjoy it… Zombies just shouldn’t talk! However as the trailer and premise of the show still makes In The Flesh look awesome, so I will be eagerly awaiting its arrival on our screens.
