Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 premieres October, 4!

Fear the Walking Dead may be concluding its first season this Sunday, October 4th, but “Fear” will continue to spread as AMC rolls out its newest web series, officially titled Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462, online beginning this fall. The first installment of the 16-part series will debut on amc.com on Sunday, October 4th and will then air as promos during two commercial breaks within The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere episode on Sunday, October 11th.

Subsequent episodes of Flight 462, each less than one minute long, will debut every Sunday, online and then on-air as promos during new episodes of The Walking Dead, for the duration of Season 6. In addition, one of the characters featured in the web series, which is produced by Fear the Walking Dead showrunner and executive producer Dave Erickson and co-executive producer David Wiener, will join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead Season 2.

Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 tells the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. Over the course of the series, the plane and the lives of its passengers are put in jeopardy once they discover an infected traveler. The series is written by L. Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by Fear director of photography Michael McDonough.

“Flight 462 is a great extension of the world of Fear and will engage fans across multiple platforms with another riveting story set at the start of the fall of civilization,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dave Erickson and David Wiener on another piece of original content. Watching how they’ll bring one of these new characters to the second season of Fear will be really exciting for viewers to follow.”

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, plot synopsis

When you think of the fun and action filled Resident Evil movies one thing that doesn't come to mind is the plot. I always thought the plot was to have Milla Jovovich run around in some impossibly tight get up and kick zombie/human ass. It seems that the supposedly last movie in the franchise which at this time is featuring the obvious title, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will actually have a plot. Okay that's the plan anyway. Read the plot synopsis below.

"Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.

In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion."

Zombie book of the week: Broken World by Kate L. Mary

When a deadly virus sweeps the country, Vivian Thomas sets out for California in hopes of seeing the daughter she gave up for adoption. Then her car breaks down and she’s faced with a choice. Give up, or accept a ride from redneck brothers, Angus and Axl. Vivian knows the offer has more to do with her double D’s than kindness, but she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to reach her daughter.

The virus is spreading, and by the time the group makes it to California, most of the population has been wiped out. When the dead start coming back, Vivian and the others realize that no electricity or running water are the least of their concerns. Now Vivian has to figure out how to be a mother under the most frightening circumstances, cope with Angus’s aggressive mood swings, and sort out her growing attraction to his brooding younger brother, Axl.

While searching for a safe place to go, they pick up a pompous billionaire who may be the answer to all their problems. Trusting him means going into the middle of the Mojave Desert and possibly risking their lives, but with the streets overrun and nowhere else to turn, it seems he might be their only chance for survival.

Coming soon: The Walking Dead beer?

A small brewery is releasing a Walking Dead Beer in October. Now I'm not touching it because this could be how the zombie apocalypse starts. You know, with friends sharing brews during a football game before being transformed into the living dead by said brew.

Press Release: Terrapin Beer Co. has partnered with Skybound Entertainment, the company founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, to create the official beer of the undead. Whether you’re animated or reanimated, The Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA will put a shuffle in your step.

The Walking Dead comic book series, which was created by Robert Kirkman, debuted in 2003 and is the inspiration behind the wildly-popular TV series of the same name that premiered in 2010.

The partnership with Terrapin came naturally, as both the comic and the TV show have strong ties to Georgia. Much of the comic book is based in the state and the TV show is filmed in Senoia, a small town just outside of Atlanta. Further strengthening the local bond between the Walking Dead story and Terrapin is that the brewery’s beers have been featured in multiple episodes of the TV show since Season 2. Like many folks out there, Terrapin is a big fan of The Walking Dead and is excited to be part of this collaborative project.

From the label:

Terrapin Beer Company and The Walking Dead have teamed up to brew the official beer of the undead. Made with blood orange peel, and a horrific amount of hops, this bloodthirsty Red IPA will have you prepared for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse.

The Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA will be available in 22 oz. bottles throughout Terrapin’s full distribution footprint. Look for these bombers to drop on October 5! [SOURCE]
