Insane Event #Zedtown Heads To Phoenix In April

Zombie defense mobilization efforts are now underway as Phoenix area residents prepare for an impending zombie invasion experience at “Zedtown,” on April 21 & 22 at Rawhide Western Town. Leading live experience producer, VStar Entertainment Group, in partnership with TEG Life Like Touring, today announced the U.S. debut of Zedtown, a video game brought to life. For the past five years, Zedtown has gained popularity touring in Australia with multiple epic storylines, and has plans to invade cities across the U.S. throughout 2018. Armed with only their foam blasters, thousands of Phoenix defenders are invited to battle together to make it to the final stand in this post-apocalyptic adventure of Survivors vs. Zombies. The only question will be: How long will they survive? To purchase tickets, visit us.zedtown.com.



All players begin as survivors in their chosen faction. Each faction has their own individual storyline, propelling players into the intricate gaming world of Zedtown. Over the course of a 4-hour game, players will meet characters along the way who will give them secret missions and empower them to create their own heroic action and epic stories. A call-in radio station provides up-to-the-minute, play-by-play commentary and useful survival tips, while the dedicated Zedtown app helps survivors communicate and gain achievements throughout the game. Social media streams offer real-time clues, commentary and a hub for fantastic player-driven storytelling. Once tagged by one of the undead, survivors will be transformed into a zombie by Zedtown’s professional make-up artists. Then there’s only one thing to do…hunt the most BRAAAAAAAINS!

According to Zedtown participant Hayley Williams, a Social Media & Community Editor for Gizmodo, Lifehacker and Kotaku in Australia, “The best parts of Zedtown are the heart-thumping, adrenaline-fueled moments of pure survival. It's a feeling that's hard to find anywhere else, recreating the tense, physically strenuous moments of your favorite action movies or zombie survival flicks. It's the experience at the core of what makes Zedtown great, and it's what keeps me coming back again and again.”

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …

Under the Skin Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…
