Let's say vampires were an integrated part of society; it'd be socially unacceptable for them to just go around sucking regular folks dry. The good thing about the Japanese is that they'd quickly find a way to not only make a buck off the potential plight but also provide a cool and refreshing way for the suckheads to quench their thirst.
We've been all over HBO's "True Blood" - the new vampire series from "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball - ever since it was first announced.
NEW UPDATE: The good folks over at Screen Rant have gotten word from Devin at CHUD that all this craziness is surrounding HBO's new vampire series, "True Blood". Yay I can finally sleep at night!
Over the years we've seen some bizarre viral marketing, but this new campaign may be the most intriguing yet. Yesterday I checked my mailbox to find a strange black envelope with no return address. It looked like an invitation and had a red seal with the letters "TB" on the back. Inside was the letter you see to your right (click to see it bigger)...
When we last told you about the series “True Blood” (“Paquin, Moyer to Wallow in Blood” – April 2007), apparently it wasn’t even a series yet but rather just a pilot with the hopes and dreams of being a series.
There’s not a lot Anna Paquin (pictured) can do that I won’t follow her to. For some reason I’ve always had a huge crush on her, especially as the super damaged Rogue in the X-Men movies, and until she’s doing romantic comedies I’ll be keeping an eye on everything she does.
Perhaps my fears were for naught. The recent news that Ghost Rider writer/director Mark Steven Johnson would be bringing the Preacher comic series to life via HBO left me a little concerned. Of all the names that have circled this project over the years, his is one of the least proven, but a recent chat with Fangoria has made me feel a helluva lot better about it.
I’ve got to say it’s about damn time some movement was made on Preacher again. People have been trying to get Garth Ennis’ comic onto the big screen for years; it finally took HBO to make it a reality ... just on a slightly smaller screen.
