Voice Actors Named for Animated Series Vampire KnightVIZ Media has announced the first names to join the voice cast for Vampire Knight, the upcoming animated series based on the bestselling manga by Matsuri Hino.

For those unfamiliar with the storyline of the popular graphic novel, Vampire Knight takes place at Cross Academy, which is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy’s dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!

Vampire Knight is an important series that demanded skilled actors who could portray these complex characters without sacrificing any of the intensity and emotional drama each one exudes,” says William Germain, Director, Programming & Music Sales, VIZ Media. “We also know there are a lot of fans of the manga that have been waiting for this series so we wanted to bring in some very talented people who we know will take Vampire Knight to a whole new level. Look for more news coming soon about the North American debut!

VIZ Media sought out a cast of talented voice actors and the recording expertise of Bang Zoom! Entertainment to bring this series to life. Their efforts paid off with the following names already signed on:

  • Yuki Cross, the adoptive daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, is played by Mela Lee (below, left).
  • Veteran anime voice actor Vic Mignogna (below, center) plays Zero Kiryu, a student who is a year older than Yuki Cross and comes from a family of vampire hunters.
  • Finally, Kaname Kuran is portrayed by Ethan Murray (below, right). In the series Kuran is a pure blooded vampire and the current Head of the Kuran Clan. He once saved Yuki from an attack by another vampire when she was seven years old and also serves as the president of the Night Class and the dorm leader. Kuran is both feared and respected by the other Night Class students.

    When Will Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes Season 2 Premiere?

    Published

    on

    Three months back we let you guys know that the second season of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes TV series had cast Tessa Ferrer (Insidious: The Last Key) to star as a series regular opposite Jack Huston, with production set to begin in Charleston, SC the following month.

    Well, shooting on season two must have gone well because today Deadline confirms that the ten-episode second season will begin airing on the AT&T Audience Network August 22.

    I didn’t watch the first season myself because I was hoping to read the book first… but that didn’t happen. Anyhow, I plan to catch up before season 2 begins airing this August.

    What did you think of Season 1 of Mr. Mercedes? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

    The second season will also be based on King’s “Bill Hodges Trilogy” (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) and hits AT&T Audience Network August 22.

    Season 1 Synopsis:

    Demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway) taunts retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

    Blumhouse Reveals Halloween Poster With Michael in Full Glory!

    Published

    on

    The poster for Blumhouse’s Halloween has been revealed and it’s almost brilliant in its simplicity. Featuring Michael’s iconic mask in the upper left, it practically looms over the blackness of the bottom right, Michael’s almost entirely black stare looking at the Halloween font. His mask is cracked and weathered, almost as though it aged and wrinkled with him, dirt and grime collecting around the eyes and nostrils. In short, it’s absolutely fantastic.

    Speaking recently with Halloween Daily News, Nick Castle, who plays Michael Myers, explained, “Yes, and it’s very neighborhood-centric, you know, like the first one. It feels a lot like (the first film). There are a lot of things coinciding (in the new film) that feel like clever ways to introduce a kind of déjà vu of the first one, without feeling like it’s being copied. The script had some very clever people working on it. They were very clear on wanting to find the tone that was in the first one. It was the first thing out of their mouths really: ‘We want to do it like John did it.’

    Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer, the latter two who play Curtis’ granddaughter and daughter, respectively. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.

    Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

    Venture back into Haddonfield when Halloween goes trick or treating on October 19.
