Z Nation starts three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, when a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world's last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind's survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America. Check out the first trailer below:
Check out this interview Wesley Snipes did while out promoting Expendables 3. In this interview he discusses his wish once again play Blade and the need for more black super heroes in movies. I just wish he had said that if there is a Blade 4 that they will pretend Blade 3 never happened and that the movie will be a direct sequel to Blade II.

When a cataclysmic virus that reanimates dead flesh is unleashed upon the world, news anchor woman Katya Nevin is the only living person who knows the truth of its origin. Together with her crew, Katya secures herself on the tenth floor of the WW news building and makes it her mission to inform the world of the truth about the impending zombie apocalypse.
Katia’s need to reveal the truth to the world sees her hunted by two armed MI7 agents who have been deployed to find and destroy the sensitive material now being broadcast from the top of the WW building.
With the world outside falling into chaos around them, Katya and her intrepid band of survivors must fight for their lives and choose between relaying news reports about the apocalypse from around the world and their own survival. Will they escape, or will they die for their cause?
I like many fans of AMCs The Walking Dead have grown used to the Television Academy ( Academy? Isn't that like a janitor calling themselves a custodial engineer? ) snubbing the show save for a few special effects or technical nominations.
This year was no different. The Walking Dead was only nominated in two categories, Outstanding Special and Visual Effects and Outstanding Sound Editing.
I would like to call bullsh*t on the Television Academy not nominating any actors from the Walking Dead this year for an Emmy. One in particular stands out, Melissa McBride.
Anyone who has actually watched season 4 of The Walking Dead knows that at the very least Melissa McBride should have been nominated for her performance in episode 14, "The Grove". To me that was the best performance by a series regular ever. I stress regular because in Season 3 episode 12 Morgan Jones' performance in "Clear" was outstanding and the best in the entire series run so far.
I am seriously wondering why the Television Academy could snub McBride that way. I believe there are two factors hurting the actors in The Walking Dead. One being the fact that it is what could be called a genre show and most snooty Television Academy voters have never actually watched it. God forbid they watch something with zombies in it. You can't blame AMC for this one either as they made a concerted effort to push their actors this Emmy season.
The other being jealousy over the ratings success of the show. I can't think of any other sane reasons why the show is constantly snubbed in the acting categories the way it is.
McBride gave a performance that was at the very least worthy of an Emmy nomination. I guess she like most actors on the show will have to settle for a Saturn Awards nomination and that is a damn shame.
There are over a million people in the city of Waterloo. Today, most of them have died, and now they are hungry. Corporal Dan Williamson is caught in the middle of the outbreak. He is desperately trying to reach his wife who is somewhere amid the urban decay. There are other souls out there, other tales of survival among the horror. Dan will soon learn that the living may prove to be an even bigger threat than the dead.
