Zombies are expensive, and rather than hire one and have to deal with the cost of a wrangler, worry about crew safety or deal with any possible P.E.T.Z. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Zombies) outrage, we enlisted our talented crew of makeup artists to transform Production Assistant, Sean Poole into one of the undead for today's DVDuesday with Chris Gore and Candace Bailey. Of course, we also took pictures of the zombie metamorphoses, which you should totally check out! Please, don't send any letters if you're an actual zombie and are offended. We respect all people, living and undead alike.
The demo for Mortal Kombat comes out tomorrow and for the first time in over fifteen years, I'm excited about something with "Mortal Kombat" in the title. The upcoming game looks violent, dark and bloody, everything a Mortal Kombat game should be. Of course, being a fan of MK, I'm familiar with disappointment. Every game after Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 sucked, the second movie sucked, and the biggest suck of all was the Mortal Kombat Live Tour.
Back in the day, when Midway Games ruled the coin-op roost and you couldn't talk about video games without someone excitedly bringing up the gory fighter, the marketing gurus (we're assuming) at the now defunct developer came up with the idea of draining even more quarters from rabid fans by taking the most brutal video game franchise in history and turning it into a family friendly stage show. It sounds like a horrible idea (and it was), but it certainly raked in the cash. I'm ashamed to say it, but it got my allowance, and lest you think it just appealed to kids, the tour managed to draw throngs of single, adult males to the Great Western Forum when it rolled through Los Angeles. We should have known we weren't going to see the bloodshed and fatalities we were hoping for at an all-ages event, but I guess we were so blinded by our passion for MK, the thought never occurred to us.
If you're an avid reader of the Avengers comics, then you might have noticed something a little off about the screenshots for the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC, Captain America's shield is wrong. While it's true that Cap has had a couple of different versions of his shield throughout the years, the one he's wielding in the screenshots above is semi-apocryphal.
In the current 616 continuity, the mighty super soldier has conceded the moniker of Captain America to his former partner, Bucky and has taken over as Head of National Security. Now, going by his given name, Steve Rogers, he wears the uniform shown above while on active duty, but uses a force field replica of his famous circular shield in combat (it's used often in Secret Avengers), not the kite style shield in the screenshots. That shield was first introduced back in 1941 (Captain America Comics #1) and was later given as a peace offering to the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

Anyone who has ever been in a committed relationship can tell you, the plot of Hall Pass is a completely unrealistic (yet awesome) fantasy, but these Carly Craig pics are quite real and pretty damn hot, as is Carly Craig's video interview with Kevin Pereira.

The Oscars are but a few days away and Tinseltown is abuzz with anticipation. The rest of the country (including you) is much better off forgetting about the actual ceremony and skimming through these pics of Kevin Pereira, Candace Bailey, and Sara Underwood presenting their version of the Academy Awards (in under sixty seconds, no less).
It's hard to believe they pulled it off in just a minute, but here's video proof of Kevin Pereira, Candace Bailey, and Sara Underwood doing what the rest of Hollywood somehow hasn't been able to do, abbreviate the Oscars.

We're sure that you nerds watching AOTS knew there was a statistically good chance that we'd post some pics of the newest star of The Big Bang Theory, Mayim Bialik on Attack of the Blog. Your calculations were indeed correct. Good for you! Now, put down your TI-86s, let your right brain take over for a while and enjoy these Mayim Bialik pictures. If you absolutely can't help but do some form of mathematics at all times, you can add watching this video of Mayim Bialik's interview with Kevin Pereira to your list of fun stuff to do (right above number two, which is probably calculus).
