With Season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD debuting tonight on AMC, ASSIGNMENT X spoke with executive producer and showrunner Glen Mazarra who took the time to look back on the events of Season 2 and where the show is heading in Season 3 as our ragtag group of survivors headed by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finally make it to the Prison to find safe haven from the “walkers” (aka the living dead). Two big fan favorite characters from the Robert Kirkman/Tony Moore/Charlie Adlard created comic will also be joining Season 3 including the villainous The Governor (David Morrissey) and warrior […]Read On »

James Cameron, who executive-produced SANCTUM, is famous for his love of diving, and although he did not direct this film, that passion and its cause are evident throughout. We see one breathtaking underwater vista after another, brought to us in uncommonly effective 3D. Most films waste the format – not so SANCTUM. Under Alister Grierson’s direction, we get a wonderful sense of how rock shelves in caves stretch out at a particular distance and we practically get vertigo watching water thunder down deep drops. Indeed, as the film opens and we have one of our few encounters with civilization, a few roof shacks appear to extend out into the theatre, roughly two rows in front of the viewer. It’s great.
