All Zombieland Rules

All Zombieland Rules

Okay, technically all Zombieland Rules is slightly misleading as we currently only know 13 of a possible 33 but since making this site has taken the place of any real news tonight we thought it was worth talking about.

In Zombieland, Columbus survives by following his set of very specific rules. In the film we only get to see 8 of them but thanks to various videos and general piecing together we’ve collated a further 5.

If you have a rule for Zombieland or can fill in the missing 20+, then head over to ZombielandRules.com and help us prepare for the zombocalypse.

Romero To Publish His Zombie Origins In New Book

4 Oct

The man who started it all (well, for all intents and purposes) George A. Romero has recently signed a 2 book deal with Headline Publishing in the UK to write about the origin of his zombies.

Presumably starting in San Diego with a corpse sitting up in the morgue (Diary of the Dead), the book will focus on how the zombies came to be and will hopefully for the first time explain exactly what a zombie can and can’t do.

Hopefully Romero will stick with ‘cosmic radiation’ as the cause (hinted at in Night of the Living Dead) and not kowtow to any pressure to make them of the more modern viral interpretations. As Romero’s zombies also maintain some semblance of their former lives perhaps we will find out exactly how much and what they remember.

Arguably, there’s nobody better qualified on the subject of zombies although Max Brooks, Zombie Survival Guide, comes close and for an apparent $300,000 advance the publishers must be hoping that the public want to learn from the master.

Plants Vs Zombies In NYC Halloween Parade

PopCap Games, today announced its participation in New York City’s 36th Annual Village Halloween Parade as an In-Parade Sponsor happening Saturday evening, October 31st . The parade kicks off at 7:00 p.m. PopCap will be assembling a throng of plants and zombies to celebrate the massive success of its best-selling title of 2009, Plants vs. Zombies™, and give away themed merchandise to some of the one million plus spectators who’ll watch the parade wind its way through Manhattan. PopCap is inviting all Plants vs. Zombies (PvZ) fans, zombie lovers and macabre gardening types to come out dressed in their favorite PvZ costume and join the celebration on Halloween night.

Halloween revelers who join the PvZ contingent will be eligible for the costume contest which will occur immediately following the parade. PopCap will be digging up some great prizes for best plant and best zombie costumes based on the game. “Plants vs. Zombies seems to inspire people to new heights of zaniness, and we have the photos to prove it,” laughed Garth Chouteau, vice president of public relations at PopCap, “We wanted to give those rabid PvZ fans a fun time and place to gather and celebrate their passion for the game. What better way than marching up 6th Avenue in New York’s historic Halloween parade!” Parade director Jeanne Fleming agrees, “We’re delighted to have PopCap Games as a sponsor. Their decision to open up their Plants vs. Zombies troupe in the parade to all who wish to join in is perfectly aligned with the spirit of the parade, which invites the entire city to participate in this enormous creative collaboration.”

PopCap is extending a special invitation to members of several undead enthusiast organizations including NYC Zombie Crawl and ZombieCon in an effort to make this parade appearance the largest gathering of zombies in parade history. The NYC Village Halloween Parade is featured in the book 100 Things to Do Before You Die and PopCap is creating an opportunity for both the living and the undead to check this off their bucket-head lists.

Wentworth Miller Joins Resident Evil Afterlife Cast

Wentworth Miller Joins Resident Evil Afterlife Cast

While the above image is a photoshop and not as some of you may have thought a production still, Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame has been confirmed as joining the newest Resident Evil film, Afterlife in all it’s 3D glory. There are also some dubious rumours regarding some cast changes on IMDb.

Milla Jovovich is back for the last time as Alice while Ali Larter and Spencer Locke reprise their roles from Resident Evil: Extinction as Claire Redfield and K-Mart.

Apparantly Shawn Roberts will replace Jason O’Mara as Albert Wesker and despite some objections that he doesn’t look like Wesker, shove a blonde wig on him and I don’t think it’s that big a leap of imagination. Jason O’Mara is still rumoured on the IMDb page so, it’s currently unclear who will be filling the role.

Anderson explained in a statement that in Resident Evil: Afterlife

Alice’s battle with The Umbrella Corporation isn’t finished. Last time we saw Alice, she let them know she was coming after them. It’s time to settle the score.

Resident Evil: Afterlife is slated for an Autumn 2010 release.
