The Walking Dead Box Set

If you’re an Aussie fan of The Walking Dead, then you will be on the verge of nirvana because two big things are about to happen in your world.

Not only are we only a few weeks away from Season 7 hitting the TV screens, answering the big question who exactly did Negan kill in that finale, but you have also Season Six becoming available on DVD/Blu-Ray/On-Demand on 21st September through eOne Entertainment.

Well we thought we would bring you this interview with Norman Reedus (the rough and tough Daryl Dixon) and Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee).

With a hectic schedule away from the set of The Walking Dead, it seems only fitting that the best place to grab an interview with two of the show’s biggest stars is at a convention. Luckily that also meant Reedus and Yeun were in great moods after being presented to their fans and only too happy to talk.

So first of all, what are convention fans like when they run into stars from their favourite show? “They just freak out,” laughs Yuen. “They ask what’s going to happen next. I mean, they’re just [really] into the show. Like, I’m into the show. Sometimes I’ll go to the set, and I’ll watch things that I’m not in being filmed, ’cause I’m just so excited to watch them do it.”

Both men are also in unison when asked what makes the show so damn popular. “It comes down to the writing. It starts with what’s on the page, I think.” says Yuen. “Yeah I think it’s the writing,” nods Reedus. “I think it’s the writing and commitment to the stories that we’re telling. Nobody on the show gives less than 110 percent, ever. Ever.” Yeun adds, “And that goes to crew. That goes to cast. That goes to post.”

Staying on the top of the writing of the show, Reedus admits he doesn’t know how the creative team behind The Walking Dead do it so well. “You know, I’ve directed music videos, short films, I’ve edited them… it’s nothing like this show, though. This is such a juggernaut of — there are so many people that I can’t figure out how they do the dialogue so well, you know what I mean? But as far as my character and storyline, Scott’s always been collaborative. It’s always been a team.”

“There’s some times when I’m like, ‘No, I don’t get that. What does that mean?’, and he’s like, ‘No, no, this doesn’t mean anything, it’s just –‘ And I go, ‘Oh, oh, that’s so good!’ The talks we have at the beginning of the year especially, sort of the midpoint, really do help shape what we’re doing. I mean, Daryl, especially, is not a character in the books. And he was this little bit of this enigma. Jumping into it, I think he’s always been one of the most challenging characters because he’s such a guarded character. So how much do we show of him, and show off who he really is? And who he really is has been changing the whole time, too. It’s been exciting that as he’s been showing more of himself, that we’ve been able to show those changes involved.”

Touching on how deep Daryl is as a character brings the topic around to the fact that while the writers of the show have introduced a number of love interests for him along the way, he has never seemed to act on it. Does Reedus feel that fans or the show’s writers put pressure on for something to happen?

“The writers wouldn’t be pressuring.  They would just pull the trigger,” laughs Yuen. “Fan-wise you watch these two groups battle each other, like the Bethels and the Carols,” explains Reedus. “But the amount of fan art that I get off me and Rick making out is… it’s like, ‘what is this?’, you know? Like, we should do a show, a proper art show of the two of us in the bathtub together – I mean, it’s insane. But, the thing is, are they looking for me to have a committed relationship with these people, just to bone them? Like, what am I doing? And the truth is, I don’t know that Daryl is ready to do any of that.”

“And, you know, it’s almost the same as, ‘Are you ever gonna cut your hair on the show?’  Why the hell would I cut my hair? ‘Are you ever gonna take a bath?’ Well, I’m just gonna get dirty again. You know what I’m saying? They go to war, and sometimes I feel bad for whoever. Because what’ll happen is those girls that – that other __ in the Daryl whatever’s – will get, sometimes, bashed.  And I’m like, “That’s bullshit.  She doesn’t deserve that. I remember when Carol got real badass – I saw this one, and it was like, ‘She doesn’t even need Daryl anymore.  She can take care of herself.  Daryl’s just a big man-child.’ These people go nuts. It could go on and on and on. But do I feel pressured? Nope.”

Yuen laughs and adds, “And I’d say, the characters on all — I mean, this is a guy who’s pretty damn guarded, and the fact that he now has family – he really does have a family with these people. He’s on a journey.”

Reedus nods and says, “It might not be the most obvious timeline to other people in their life, but Daryl has had a pretty wild life, pretty weird life.”

When touching on the deepness of the characters in The Walking Dead, the talk turns to whether or not ‘specialists’ are brought in to talk to the writers and the actors on how characters might react to the very dramatic circumstances they often find themselves on the show. “Season Three was a really rough season for most of us,” explains Yuen.

“Especially for Carl,” adds Reedus. “I remember Steven was talking about how emotionally distraught he was after the whole scene with the governor, with him, with Glenn and Maggie. It is hard for all of us. And after Carl killed his mom, just these scenes that you don’t remember much, they impact us, as people, so much. We’ve all been through really, really tough places, because of this show.”

Yeun nods and adds, “I’ve said this a few times – you know, there’s a lot of horror, there’s a lot of survival war, there’s a lot of really intense emotional things that happen on this show. And this show has gone on for six years.”

Of course, the guys couldn’t give away any spoilers but when asked about where the characters will head in the new season Yuen quickly answers, “Actually, all of these characters, you generally know where they started, ’cause we’re starting fairly close to where we ended. They’re gonna be very, very far away from that by the end of the season.  So, you guys could easily do the math on that. I’m just saying, if you know where they start, they’re not going to be emotionally in the same place by the end of the season.  None of these folks.”

So what can they tell us about this Team Rick/Team Morgan divide that seems to be happening? Is that a real thing or just in the fan’s minds? “Well, I will neither confirm nor deny,” laughs Reedus, “but I will say that there are conflicts within this group. I don’t know if Lennie was talking about it at this table or another table, but Lennie is – I mean, what did he say to Daryl? ‘All life is precious.’”

“He shows up at Alexandria, right after Rick has shot Amanda in the face. There seems to be a different approach coming head-to-head. And there’s other characters we know that have pretty strong opinions about all this. So, even if it’s not absolutely exactly Team Morgan and Team Rick, there are conflicts that we’re going to see.”

If you want to see whether Team Rick or Team Morgan come to the fore, make sure you grab your copy of The Walking Dead Season 6 from eOne Entertainment.

The Walking Dead Box Set

With Season 6 of The Walking Dead being released on home entertainment this week (thanks to our good friends at eOne Entertainment) and Season 7 about to hit television screens next month we decided that now would be a good time to go back and recap the main things that have happened in each season… and keep tuned to the Heavy website because we have some Australian exclusive The Walking Dead content coming up over the next couple of weeks.

 

Season 1

Our trusty hero Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the best television cop since Sgt Frank Gilroy, wakes up after being in a coma in hospital. He quickly discovers that a virus has spread right across America and the result are hordes of zombies (called ‘walkers’ by Rick) that will either bite you and turn you or just eat you… depends on how quick you are at getting away.

After meeting up with Morgan Jones (Lennie James) who were refer to as that dude from Jericho in our household Rick heads off to Atlanta, which is rumoured to have been quarantined by the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention, in search of his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and son, Carl (Chandler Riggs).

Meanwhile, Lori has started a relationship with Rick’s best friend and Police partner Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal) as she believes that Rick is dead. Her, Shane and Carl are staying with a group, including Andrea (Laurie Holden), Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn), Glenn (Steven Yuen), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride) and Merle (Michael Rooker) just out of Atlanta.

Rick meets up with the group and learns that Atlanta is over-run with workers. After a daring escape that sees Rick handcuff Merle to a roof in Atlanta the group head for the CFDSAP where Dr. Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) tells that the outbreak cannot be contained and that technically everybody is now infected… that just have to die for it to take over. He kills himself and blows up the centre but our group of trusty heroes manage to escape.

 

Season 2

The group leave Atlanta and head for Fort Benning. But after Carl is accidentally shot they head to the farm of Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) and his family which includes Beth (Emily Kinney) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan). Hershel patches up Carl (despite being a vet not a doctor) and the group decide to try and stay with the Greenes, but not everything runs smoothly. Rick and Hershel clash on a number of things (the biggest being Hershel’s refusal to kill walkers – he believes he can cure them), Rick loses trust in both Shane and Lori after he discovers their relationship while Daryl sinks into depression and Carol struggles to deal with the loss of her daughter. Then there is the sad death of Daryl.  In fact the only person who seems to be enjoying his time at the Greenes is Glen who starts a relationship with Maggie.

Then on one fateful night Rick and Shane come to blows, the result being the death of Shane, while Shane actions lead to the ‘walkers’ attacking the farm. The group flee but in doing so leave Andrea behind, but she is rescued by a mysterious figure who keeps walkers on a chain.

 

Season 3

Eight months after the night of horror at the Greenes Rick and his group stumble across an abandoned prison. After clearing the complex of ‘walkers’ they make themselves at home but tragedy strikes pretty much straight away. First Hershel’s foot has to be amputated after a walker bite while Lori dies during child-birth and has to be shot by her own son, Carl, before she can turn. Her death then starts Rick on a steady journey of mental illness as he starts seeing her ghost everywhere.

Meanwhile Andrea and her new found friend, the modern-day warrior Michonne (Danai Gurira) are taken captive by Merle and delivered to a settlement run by the ego-driven The Governor (David Morrissey). After learning about the group at the prison The Governor decides they are a threat and after he takes Glen and Maggie captive a series of attacks between the two fractions start.

After The Governor continues to de-stabilise his behaviour becomes some erratic that he ends up torturing Andrea, something that results in her killing herself, and launching another attack on the prison. With Rick’s group coming out triumphant The Governor and his commanders are sent packing while the rest of his group are welcomed into the prison.

 

Season 4

The two groups seem to be happily co-inhabiting at the prison but the joy is short lived when a flu epidemic sweeps through the complex. Many die and Carol becomes exiled after killing some of the infected.

The Governor then returns and manages to take Michonne and Hershel captive and use them as leverage against Rick. Another battle erupts, one that claims The Governor and Hershel’s lives but not before the prison is badly damaged allowing it to become once again over-run with walkers.

As Rick’s group flees the prison they go in all different directions but all find themselves heading to Terminus, a railway depot that is said to offer safety and shelter for victims. While various members of the group meet Glen and Tara (Alanna Masterson) run into Abraham (Michael Cludlitz) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) who are helping a ‘supposed’ gifted scientist, Eugene (Josh McDermitt), get to Washington where he believes he can cure the walker epidemic.

Eventually the entire group arrive at Terminus and soon learn that the people there are not what they are expected and find themselves being taken captive.

 

Season 5

While the group are being held captive at Terminus they learn that they are about to become food for the inhabitants there. Luckily Carol and Tyrese (Chad L. Coleman) launch an attack on Terminus and the group are rescued.

After that they stumble across a Church run by Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam) and while most stay there Carol and Daryl leave in search of Beth who they believe has been kidnapped by instead has been taken to a hospital that is run by corrupt Police Officers. While trying to rescue her the group are shattered when Beth is killed.

Once again devastated the group travel and look for a new home and in doing so are found by Aaron (Ross Marquand) who takes them to the fortified community of Alexandria which is run by a former Senator, Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh).

Rick and the group find it difficult to settle into Alexandria though. Rick believes the community is not protected enough and schemes with Carol and Daryl to go against Deanna. Meanwhile Glen finds himself at war with one of the locals after the death of a young man. Everything comes to ahead when Rick tries to protect Jessie Anderson (Alexandra Breckenridge) from her violent husband. After being ‘arrested’ her husband kills Deanna’s husband and Rick is ordered to kill him just as Morgan turns up.

 

Whew…so that should bring you up to date with what has happened in the first five seasons of The Walking Dead now make sure you check back over the next couple of days because we’re going to behind the scenes of Season Six in a way that you have never seen before.

Monster Fest 2016

Returning this year from November 24-27, Australia’s premier genre film festival, Monster Fest is thrilled to announce the Australian premiere of controversial new French horror film, RAW as its Official Opening Night Film.

RAW made its World Premiere at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where it was awarded the coveted FIPRESCI Award and was lauded by critics and fans alike as the genre sensation of the festival.

RAW is the debut feature of French director Julia Ducournau, and tells the story of a young vegetarian who discovers her dark side when she is forced to participate in a carnivorous hazing ritual on her first day at Veterinary school. It’s a coming-of-age tale with a cannibal theme that’ll appeal to genre buffs and cinephiles alike, provided they have strong stomachs!

Earlier this week RAW held its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and created headlines around the globe when paramedics were called to the cinema to treat three audience members who fainted during its ‘Midnight Madness’ screening.

Monster Pictures is the Australian license holder of RAW and has its release set for March 2017.

Neil Foley, Monster Pictures’ Head of Acquisitions and Executive Producer of Monster Fest, says of RAW “This is absolutely one of the greatest genre films I’ve seen in my time at Monster, it references many of the masters, from Argento to Carpenter to Cronenberg, but remains a completely unique and fresh take on the genre. It’s simultaneously harrowing and beautiful, and is probably our most exciting acquisition to date.”

The critical response to the film thus far has been full of praise, and includes the following:

“…the assured storytelling and direction, including some of the goriest makeup effects this side of Rob Zombie, turn Raw into the kind of crossover film that takes the horror genre into another domain” – Hollywood Reporter

““Raw” is a deliciously fevered stew of nightmare fuel that hangs together with a breezily confident sense of superior craft.” – Variety

“Genre buffs and fests will gobble it up, and this prime cut should be the plat du jour on cult theatrical menus worldwide… All in all, a classily savorous fright tartare.” – Screen Daily

RAW will Open Monster Fest on November 24 and will be followed by the Opening Night Gala. Tickets will go on sale over the coming weeks and will be announced via the Monster Fest website and associated social media.
Monster Fest is also pleased to announce its second themed sidebar, ‘Frequencies’, which is focused on genre narratives made for or about the small screen. The Frequencies section will be headlined by the World Premiere launch of the new Headpress book, ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE? A TV MOVIE COMPENDIUM 1964-1999, edited by American television scholar Amanda Reyes who will appear at the festival on a clip-and-tell panel about the history of television movies, with the book’s contributors Lee Gambin, John Harrison and stuntwoman Marneen Fields, followed by a screening of Buzz Kulik’s 1974 telefright, BAD RONALD and co-presented by Melbourne film society Cinemaniacs.

The section will also include the Australian Premiere of Jackson Stewart’s BEYOND THE GATES starring Graham Skipper (THE MIND’S EYE) and Chase Williamson (JOHN DIES AT THE END) as two brothers who find that their father’s disappearance may be connected to a sinister VHS board game. The premiere is presented by Umbrella Entertainment and will be accompanied by a NIGHTMARE VHS Board Game Party in association with Toronto’s Black Museum.

This year’s Monster Symposium series of multimedia lectures also expands on this broadcasting theme with presentations including Jodi McAlister’s DIERDRE HALL IS THE DEVIL about occultism on daytime soaps, Andrew Nette on the long-unavailable Australian horror anthology show THE EVIL TOUCH, Alexandra Heller-Nicholas on Stephen Volk’s influential and hysteria-inducing pseudo-doc GHOSTWATCH, Kier-La Janisse on Nigel Kneale’s prescient 1968 teleplay THE YEAR OF THE SEX OLYMPICS and Andrew Nette and Dean Brandum on the beloved Crawford crime show HOMICIDE, preceding a special screening of the 1964 episode “Witch Hunt”.

Cinema Nova

For the very first time, Cinema Nova will participate in Art House Theatre Day, a celebration of independent cinemas worldwide and the cultural role they play in the community.

Art House Theatre Day recognises the contributions of film and filmmakers, patrons and staff that are dedicated to providing access to the best cinematic experience.  In recent decades, a constellation of art houses theatres have emerged across the globe, with the movement nurturing independent productions, and an incredible diversity of original filmmaking.

Now in its 24th year, Cinema Nova celebrates standing the test of time and a flourishing film culture. In an age where media has become more digital, Nova remains a physical space where film lovers gather to enjoy and discuss quality films.

With 16 screens, Cinema Nova is the largest art house cinema in the southern hemisphere.

Two years after opening, Nova doubled in size to a four screen complex; adding a fifth screen a year later. By 2004 three more screens had opened including Melbourne’s first purely digital cinema screen. In 2010, just in time for Cinema Nova’s 18th birthday, a further four screens were added bringing the total to 15 auditoria. After extensive renovations in 2011, Cinema Nova introduced the Nova Bar, followed by Nova Deluxe in-cinema dining. And in 2015 a 16th theatre opened.

Cinema Nova’s General Manager, Kristian Connelly says “Cinema Nova is living proof that there is still a hunger and enthusiasm for quality art house film from home and abroad, and that in an age of sequels, prequels, reboots and streaming, the experience of going to the movies and enjoying a resonant story well-told is still a cultural cornerstone for countless Melbournians”.

Art House Theatre Day takes place Saturday September 24 with discounted, exclusive advance screenings of Life, Animated from Academy Award winning director Roger Ross Williams; and Francofonia, from Russian Ark director Alexander Sokurov.

Our Dog. Our Story. Our Legend.

Roadshow Films and Good Dog Distribution are excited to bring audiences a new trailer and poster for the highly-anticipated return of Red Dog.

The film is a follow up to the hit film Red Dog, which captured the hearts of Australians nationwide in 2011.

About Red Dog: True Blue

When eleven year old Mick (Levi Miller) is shipped off to his grandfather’s (Bryan Brown) cattle station in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia, he prepares himself for a life of dull hardship, but instead finds myth, adventure, and a friendship with a scrappy, one-of-a-kind dog that will change his life forever.

The creative team behind the original RED DOG film; director Kriv Stenders, producer Nelson Woss and writer Daniel Taplitz all return for the new installment.

RED DOG: True Blue stars Levi Miller, Bryan Brown, Jason IsaacsHanna Mangan Lawrence and Thomas Cocquerel. The film will also introduce a new canine star named Phoenix.

Red Dog: True Blue hits Australian cinemas on Boxing Day this year.

2016 Sci Fi Film Festival

Get ready for Australia’s only SF Film Festival! The 2016 SciFi Film Festival tessellates into our continuum at The Ritz, Randwick, this October, premiering the best bleeding-edge science fiction features and short films from around the world over five film-filled days.

Opening Night will see the Australian premiere of Equals, which sees maverick filmmaker Drake Doremus (Like Crazy, Breathe In) take on his first sci-fi, with big screen superstars Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kristen Stewart (Twilight) falling in love against all odds in an emotionally sterile utopia.

Making its only big-screen appearance in Australia, The Purge: Election Year is the third installment in the cult dystopian franchise whose brilliant central conceit sees a future society where one day a year citizens are allowed to break the law. In the latest film, our hero (Frank Grillo) must protect a Presidential candidate targeted for death on Purge night! Perfectly timed to precede November’s US elections, this screening will allow audiences to live vicariously through the power of cinema.
Rupture puts forth the tried and tested combination of sci-fi and horror, with singular director Steven Shainberg (Secretary, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus) returning after a ten-year hiatus with this story of a mother (Noomi Rapace) kidnapped by a secret organisation intent on turning her into a monster! This tension-filled nightmare also stars Michael Chiklis, Kerry Bishe, Peter Stormare and Lesley Manville.
For the Love of Spock is a lovingly made access-all-areas documentary about Leonard Nimoy by his son Adam, with all the insight and sensitivity only an offspring could bring to a project. Our special presentation will mark the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, and Trekkies of all ages are invited to celebrate by cosplaying at the screening!
The Similars owes a great debt to Rod Serling’s classic Twilight Zone, but in the hands of Mexico’s most exciting young filmmaker Isaac Ezban (‘the new Guillermo Del Toro’) this story of a rainy night in 1968 and a group of disparate people stuck at a bus depot is all kinds of freaky and enigmatic. The Similars will be presented at a late night session as befits this future cult film, and will be followed by a Skype interview with the filmmaker direct from Mexico!
Another cult film waiting to happen, This Giant Papier Mache Boulder is Actually Really Heavy is not only a contender for the longest film title of all time but it is also a lovingly made New Zealand indie which is taking the sci-fi world by storm, winning Best Comedy at London and Boston Sci-Fi Film Festivals, Best Sci-Fi Film at Gencon and Best Independent Film at Starburst. Appropriate for its tongue-in-cheek story of three lads who are transported to a ‘50s sci-fi movie when they enter a booth at a fan convention, patrons will be encouraged to cosplay at this late night screening. Lead actor, co-writer and director Christian Nicolson will be flying in from New Zealand for the screening and will take part in a post-film Q&A!
These feature presentations will play alongside two sessions of the best short films from Australia and abroad.

Screening the best sci-fi from around the world isn’t the end of it! Saturday, October 22 will see free side events held at the cutting edge facilities at AFTRS in Moore Park, and will include snippets of 3 upcoming Australian sci-fi feature films screened and discussions with the filmmakers, and a workshop with concept illustrator/storyboard artist Tani Kunitake (Star Wars: Episode VIII, The Matrix) who not only provided the image that adorns the festival keyart, but is also in development on the highly ambitious sci-fi project Cerulean, which will form the basis of his presentation with the project’s producer, and actress, dancer and motion capture performer, Australian Dani Swan.

Closing Night and much more to be announced shortly.
