2018 is shaping up to be a good year for zombie movies. A lot of different takes on the genre are on the way. The Cured with Ellen Page, the French Netflix original, The Ravenous, Matt Smith and Stanley Tucci in Patient Zero. Another surprising movie is Cargo, which is based on the excellent 2013 short film.
Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.
Slim pickings this week. Another excellent issue of Spider-man on the Brian Bendis Farewell Marvel Tour. ‘Old Man Laura’ kicks off great in All-New Wolverine. The Walking Dead keeps bringing the storyline twists, but Avengers: No Surrender doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
