Deadline Comic-Con TV correspondent Gary Hodges filed his report: UPDATED: The Walking Dead ( AMC ) enjoys an overlap of fans at Comic-Con, both fans of the series and the graphic novel it’s based on. The panel held off bringing out the cast at first, instead introducing writer/director/producer Frank Darabont, makeup artist Greg Nicotero, and executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Robert Kirkman (who’s also the writer of the comic book series). Hurd was the first to make news, announcing that the season premiere of season 2 would air Sunday, October 16 th at its new time, 9pm. A trailer was next (video below), which did a good job of creating a feeling of dread but with too many fast cuts to discern anything specific about future episodes. (People fleeing zombies, shooting at zombies, hiding from zombies. And so on.) It closes with spoken dialogue: “I guess I’m losing hope. But like I said, it’s all about slim chances now. And a slim chance is better than none.” With … [Read more...] about 2011 Comic-Con: ‘The Walking Dead’ Unveils Season 2 Premiere Date, New Trailer, More

Ten years ago, when Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin hit the theatres, fans went crazy over the film. Before Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara , it was Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai that became a sensation among youth. Both films were based on three friends and a road trip, which plays an important role in the film's script. Now, we hear that Farhan is keen to direct a female version of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and wishes to cast Alia Bhatt in the lead role along with two other A-list actresses.
