AMC May Have Found Their Preacher

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 15, 2015 in Television


With the AMC Preacher pilot planning to film this summer, things are heating up in the casting room. Rumors are now circulating that AMC has a certain actor in their sights to play Jesse Custer: Dominic Cooper. The actor has just finished up a stint as Howard Stark in Agent Carter, and is reportedly the top pick to play the tough reverend. As of yet, he hasn’t been offered the part, but Tracking Board claims he’s the most likely choice at the moment. Preacher is being produced by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. The frequently violent and gross series will definitely be tough to adapt for an AMC audience. It remains to be seen how it’ll turn out! Read more…

Interstellar Returning To AMC IMAX This Weekend With More Footage

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 18, 2015 in Cinema


Anyone can take a movie and toss it up on an IMAX screen. But to make a movie worth the surcharge, it usually requires that part of the movie was actually shot on IMAX cameras, something that director Christopher Nolan loves to do. While Interstellar might have gotten more mixed reviews, it can’t be denied that it’s even more visually stunning in IMAX. The movie has been out of theaters for a while, but you’ve got one more chance to see it in IMAX. AMC has announced that select IMAX theaters will show Interstellar — with twelve minutes of additional footage — this Saturday, February 21, at 3PM. You’ll have to buy the tickets at the box office, since it’s not available online, but as a trade-off, you’ll get two tickets for the price of one. The first 300 people will get a set of Interstellar prints. Check the list below and plan accordingly. Read more…

Yes, Preacher fans, after much waiting and agonizing, AMC has finally ordered a Preacher pilot. They struck the deal with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who had been pushing for this for a long time, and will begin filming the pilot in summer 2015. Rogen and Goldberg released a statement regarding the announcement, saying, “Garth Ennis is one of our idols and it’s an incredible honor to be working on this. We promise we won’t make too many dick jokes and ruin it.” Good to know! Now, you’re finally much much closer to having a Preacher TV series. It’s still not final, but aside from ordering the show itself, this was the final hurdle. Let’s hope the pilot turns out well! Read more…

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to Adapt Preacher for AMC

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 8, 2014 in Comic Books, Television


It seems after ages in limbo, a live-action Preacher adaption will finally see the light of day. The This Is the End team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will be palling up with Sam Catlin of Breaking Bad to adapt the series for AMC. It seems the cable channel thinks they have the next big Walking Dead-ish hit on their hands — or at least some potential. Now, I’m not a big fan of Preacher, but I know a lot of you out there are. Do you think Rogen and crew can adapt it properly? I wonder how AMC will handle it — and what’ll change from page to screen. Read more…

Alternate Ending for Breaking Bad Says What We’re All Thinking

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 18, 2013 in Television


There has been no shortage of jokes about Bryan Cranston and the links between his character on Breaking Bad and his character on Malcolm in the Middle. I’ve seen so many comics, posters, or other mash-ups of the two that it almost became tiring. Actually, scratch that, it did become tiring. But this alternate ending for Breaking Bad simply blows all the rest out of the water and does the joke right. I won’t spoil anything for you, just hop below the jump and watch it, but suffice to say, the entire thing takes a more than a few hints from the famous finale of Newhart (which I’m sure will fly over the heads of most average Breaking Bad viewers). Still, it’s a great bit, and you get to see a familiar face too! Read more…

The Walking Dead Season 4 Trailer Seems Pretty OK

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 21, 2013 in Television


After the (opinion warning!) terrible ending to season 3, I lost a lot of hope in The Walking Dead. Especially given that the show can’t seem to keep a showrunner for longer than a season, it made me really hesitant to get back into it. However, the new trailer from Comic-Con for season 4 looks pretty good. It gives us a better look at a more diverse cast, and hints that a lot will be happening in the first few episodes. There aren’t any explicit spoilers about who lives or dies but it is very easy to see some hints towards who may bite it next, so if you want to keep that a surprise, avoid this for now. Otherwise, check out the trailer below! Read more…

AMC Teams Up With Joseph Kosinski for New Sci-Fi TV Show

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 19, 2013 in Television


With the runaway success of the Walking Dead, AMC has been struggling to find another show to pair with it. Typically, the show immediately following TWD is The Talking Dead, which is thoroughly uninteresting to me, but apparently loved by millions if the ratings are anything to go by. So: AMC has teamed up with Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski and the Pacific Rim scribe (Travis Beachman) to create a new sci-fi show that they hope will reach the same heights. We don’t have many details on the moment, but AMC is pitching it as “Blade Runner meets Battlestar Galactica.” Read more…
