We're back with another round of videos, this time focusing our attention on two new teasers for The CW's iZombie, a faux commercial for the zombie preventative drug, Zombrex, a sought-after item in Dead Rising: Watchtower, as well as a look at Ghoul, a found footage horror film featuring a cannibalistic spirit.
iZombie: "Co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars), Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life … until she’s turned into a zombie. Liv transfers her residency to the coroner’s office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. iZOMBIE is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo."
iZombie premieres on The CW on Tuesday, March 17th, at 9:00pm EST.
Zombrex Commercial for Dead Rising: Watchtower: "Ambuzol Vaspilatin or Zombrauctus Pendeo Autoinjectors which is commercially marketed by Phenotrans as Zombrex. Ask your doctor if Zombrex is right for you."
Dead Rising: Watchtower will be available to stream on Crackle beginning March 27th.
"Principal cast for the upcoming feature-length project includes Jesse Metcalfe (Dallas), Meghan Ory (Intelligence, Once Upon a Time), Virginia Madsen (SIDEWAYS) and Dennis Haysbert ( 24, MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN).
“DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER” takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story’s narrative. “The Dead Rising” game franchise has sold over 7.6 MM copies worldwide. Publisher Capcom has sold over 100 MM game copies worldwide, including juggernauts “Resident Evil,” “Street Fighter” and “Mega Man.”
Legendary Entertainment’s Television and Digital Media division will produce “DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER."
The project is written by Tim Carter, who is also producing with Tomas Harlan under their Contradiction Films banner. Contradiction most recently produced the hit digital series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, Red, G.I. Joe) will executive produce."
Ghoul: "In 1994, Andrei Chikatilo was executed for torture, murder and cannibalism. Tonight he returns."
Directed by Petr Jákl off a screenplay he co-wrote with Viktor Vilhelm, Ghoul stars Jennifer Armour, Paul S. Tracey, Jeremy Isabella, Debra Garza, Alina Golovlyova. Ghoul is slated for a March 20th limited theatrical release.
