The Best All-Time Zombie Death Scenes (VIDEO)

Brad Pitt’s post-apocalyptic zombie horror World War Z has had its fair share of problems. Originally written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, several other scriptwriters have come in to change his words and narrative since 2009 but now we finally have a trailer!

George Lucas Is $4 Billion Richer After Selling Lucasfilm! What Filmmakers Can Rival His Bank Balance

Last week, George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion stating “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of film-makers.” Some might say he should have done so years ago.

I’m not saying you’ll get anything, but you’d hope he’d give you a quarter or two.

So with Lucas now rich beyond his wildest dreams, which other filmmakers can rival his bank balance? Check out these geeky millionaires.
