Need some zombies and gore to go with your Friday afternoon? Who doesn’t? IGN scored the first look at the UK red band trailer for the upcoming zombedy from Matthias Hoene, Cockneys vs. Zombies, and it delivers on all counts.

The movie, which is having its world premiere at Film4Frightfest on Thursday, August 23rd, is written by James Moran (Severance) and details the story of a group of bank robbers who unlock a 350-year-old vault only to unleash an army of zombies.

Michelle Ryan (, Harry Treadaway (Control), Honor Blackman (Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Jack Doolan (Cemetery Junction) all star in Matthias Hoene’s feature Cockneys vs. Zombies.

Cockneys vs. Zombies is the story of Andy (Harry Treadaway) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker): two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their grandad’s (Alan Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time a virus sweeps across East London, turning all the inhabitants into flesh-eating zombies. Faced with hordes of undead zombies, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!

Netflix’s Lost in Space Reboot Gets Fun Behind-the-Scenes Featurette



This April we will witness the launch of Netflix’s big-budget reboot of Lost in Space starring Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, and Max Jenkins. I’m borderline excited as I feel this series could go either way, but I have to say casting Parker Posey as Dr. Smith is a great f*cking step in the right direction.

And speaking of Netflix’s “Lost in Space” today we have a fun behind-the-scenes look at The Robinsons’ epic adventure. Give it a look and then let us know if you’re excited for the reboot below!

The Netflix original series stars Toby Stephens (“Black Sails”, Die Another Day) as John Robinson, Molly Parker (“House of Cards”, “Deadwood”) as Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell (“Falling Skies”) as Judy, Mina Sudwall (Maggie’s Plan, Freeheld) as Penny, Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey (Café Society, Mascot, A Mighty Wind), Don West is played by Ignacio Serricchio (“Bones”, The Wedding Ringer), and Max Jenkins (“Sense8”, “Betrayal”) as Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robotic alien being.

The series is produced by Legendary Television and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Last Witch Hunter). Zack Estrin (“Prison Break”) serves as showrunner. The three are executive producers alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni with Applebox’s Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig. The original Lost in Space series was created by Irwin Allen.

“Lost in Space” launches on Netflix April 13.


Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, lightyears from their original destination.

Video: George R.R. Martin Asks Stephen King, “How Do You Write So Fast?”



Two of the most undisputed masters of modern popular literature are Stephen King (IT) and George R.R. Martin (“Game of Thrones”). To see the two titans even sitting in the same room together is an epic joy, but to hear their witty, charming banter is a pleasure only known to the Gods… until now.

Below you can check out a fun video which features the notoriously slow writer Martin asking King just how the hell he writes so damn fast. King’s answer is classic and I guarantee this video will leave you smiling ear-to-ear for the rest of the day.

Check out the video below and then let us know what you think!
