San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Warner Bros. Throwing Another Key PartyOnce again Warner Bros. Entertainment will be throwing a “key party” at San Diego Comic-Con. The studio has created a set of limited-edition collectible hotel keycards, which will be in use at top hotels throughout the San Diego area during the con. Read on for the full details.

From the Press Release:
Warner Bros. Entertainment is the key to excitement at Comic-Con! This marks the fifth consecutive year for the studio’s popular room key program, giving fans instant access to a usable — and collectible — piece of artwork.

Over 40,000 branded room keys will be available to fans at 38 participating San Diego–area hotels, courtesy of Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. For Comic-Con 2012, Warner Bros. has created all-new keycards for three of the Studio’s highly anticipated new fall series:

  • The “666 Park Avenue” keycard grants access to anything you desire — as long as it’s inside your room
  • The “Arrow” keycard features star Stephen Amell as the Arrow in an all-new in-character photo
  • The “Revolution” keycard opens hotel doors every time — no blackout here!

    About the Series:
    666 Park Avenue“: Anything you desire can be yours … for a price. “Lost”’s Terry O’Quinn and “Desperate Housewives”’ Vanessa Williams headline this scary, seductive drama from Alloy Entertainment as the owners of a Manhattan apartment building who recruit an idealistic young couple to manage the historic site with a dark history. The series also stars Rachael Taylor (“Charlie’s Angels”), Dave Annable (“Brothers & Sisters”), Robert Buckley (“One Tree Hill”), Mercedes Masohn (“The Finder”), Helena Mattsson (Iron Man 2) and Samantha Logan (“Law & Order: SVU”). Matthew Miller (“Chuck”), David Wilcox (“Fringe”), Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”), Gina Girolamo (“The Secret Circle”) and Alex Graves (“Fringe”) are the executive producers. Based upon the book series by Gabriella Pierce and from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television, “666 Park Avenue” will air Sundays at 10/9c on ABC this fall. Watch the full-length pilot at Warner Bros. Television’s Preview Night screening at Comic-Con on Wednesday, July 11, or during the “666 Park Avenue” session on Friday, July 13.

    Arrow“: From executive producers Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (“Fringe”) and David Nutter (“Smallville”), hard-hitting action series “Arrow” reinvents the DC Comics hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and a very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime. The series stars Stephen Amell (“Private Practice”), Colin Donnell (“Pan Am”), Katie Cassidy (“Supernatural”), David Ramsey (“Dexter”), Willa Holland (“The O.C.”) with Susanna Thompson (“Dragonfly”) and Paul Blackthorne (“The River”). From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, “Arrow” is based upon characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Comics and will air Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW this fall. Watch the full-length pilot at Warner Bros. Television’s Preview Night screening at Comic-Con on Wednesday, July 11, or during the “Arrow” session on Friday, July 13.

    Revolution“: What would you do without it all? In “Revolution”, an epic adventure thriller from “Supernatural”’s Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Iron Man’s Jon Favreau, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic landscape of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters where every single piece of technology — phones, computers, cars, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever. “Revolution” stars Billy Burke (Twilight films), Tracy Spiridakos (“Being Human”), Anna Lise Phillips (Animal Kingdom), Zak Orth (Wet Hot American Summer), Graham Rogers (“Memphis Beat”), J.D. Pardo (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad), David Lyons (“The Cape”), Maria Howell (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Tim Guinee (Iron Man films) and is executive produced by Kripke, J.J. Abrams (“Fringe”) and Bryan Burk (“Fringe”). Favreau directed the pilot and will serve as co-executive producer of the series, with Kathy Lingg (“Fringe”) and producer Athena Wickham (“Fringe”). From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television, “Revolution” will air Mondays at 10/9c on NBC this fall. Watch the full-length pilot at Warner Bros. Television’s Preview Night screening at Comic-Con on Wednesday, July 11, or during the “Revolution” session on Saturday, July 14.

    Better Watch Out for This Shudder-Exclusive Clip



    Currently on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and Shudder is the dark horror-comedy Better Watch Out (review), and to kick off your week while keeping you in the holiday spirit, we have an exclusive clip for you to stuff in your stocking!

    The critically acclaimed horror-comedy Better Watch Out debuted on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD December 5 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Holiday cheer and Home Alone get a decidedly dark spin when a babysitter must protect her charges from a terrifying home invasion. Directed by Chris Peckover (Undocumented), Better Watch Out stars Olivia Dejonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic, and Dacre Montgomery with Patrick Warburton Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen. Bonus materials include a making-of featurette and a special insert holiday card.

    Better Watch Out has a runtime of approximately 89 minutes and is rated R for disturbing violent content, language throughout, crude sexual references, drug and alcohol use – all involving teens.

    This holiday season you may be home, but you’re not alone… In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould ) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.

    AMC Reveals When The Walking Dead’s Last Stand Will Begin



    Last night “The Walking Dead” took one of its biggest detours yet from the storyline of the comics on which the series is based, but you won’t find any spoilers here aside for a peek at the show’s midseason return trailer.  In addition to the video, we have confirmation of when Episode 8.09 will be airing… read on for the details of when our survivors’ last stand begins!

    Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” resumes on Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c.  While you wait, if you’re not totally caught up, you can binge all the latest episodes on or the AMC app.

    Season 8 Synopsis:
    Last season Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

    Feeling powerless under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

    This season Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

    Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
