Fox has unleashed a new promo for the second half of "Gotham's" second season, which has been subtitled "Wrath of the Villains." The spot focuses heavily on the incoming villain Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow), showing off the horrific effects of his freeze ray. Cops, bullets, Freeze's ice cold abilities can stand up against pretty much anything.

FIRST LOOK AT BD WONG AS HUGO STRANGE ON GOTHAM02/08/16 @ 4:04 pm EST
While it feels like we need a time jump for the The Walking Dead
to finally return this weekend, Andrew Lincoln is already looking ahead and teasing a time jump in the series' plot.
While time jumps have happened on the television series before, never have they been more than a few months which usually corresponded with how long the show was off air between seasons. However, fans of the comic book know that a two-year time jump takes place shortly after the All Out War storyline.
While talking about the group's desire to stay at Alexandria, Lincoln dropped the major hint about the show's future. "Rick’s strength is seeing that we can fortify [Alexandria]," Lincoln tells EW. "A lot of these concerns and questions get answered relatively quickly in the first two or three episodes of this back eight. There is a time jump, I will say, at some point. And you will see why we stay in Alexandria."
Whether or not the time jump will be the same as it was in the comics is to be seen but if its timing parallels the comics, it is still quite a good distance away in terms of episodes. Spoilers for the comics are inbound, which could also mean for the show, as we break down things to come.
Prior to the comic book time jump, not only was Negan introduced, but Rick and Negan go to a long war over the course of 12 issues. A handful of characters are killed off during the war, we won't get into specifics, but somewhere in the time jump, Michonne banishes herself from the community.
Making an educated guess about when this time jump would actually arrive on television, one would have to say the midseason break of season seven or even between season seven and eight. The Negan/All Out War storyline is one which the showrunners will surely explore for the entirety of season seven and possibly even longer.The Walking Dead
returns February 14 at 9 PM ET on AMC.

CINESITE TO PRODUCE NINE ANIMATED MOVIES IN MONTREAL IN FIVE YEARS02/08/16 @ 10:41 am EST
In a two-and-a-half minute preview for the “X-Files” season finale, Scully may have shown her true colors.
As revealed in the video, which ran during Super Bowl 50, the finale opens in much the same way the season premiere did: with an extensive monologue from one of the lead characters. However, instead of Mulder, Scully is the one recounting her cases, and her final moment hints at her rather intimate connection to them all.
Though the video has since been removed, TVLine snagged a photo of the final(and potentially spoilery) image, which hints there’s more to Scully than meets the eye.
Set to run for six episodes, “The X-Files” airs Mondays on Fox at 8 p.m. EST. Theseason finale bows on February 22.

ONI PRESS GRAPHIC NOVELS SELECTED FOR YALSA BOOK LISTS02/08/16 @ 10:33 am EST
Visual effects and animation studio Cinesite has launched its animated production division Cinesite Animation, and unveiled a slate of nine animated feature films that will go into production over the next five years in Montreal, Canada, with backing from the Quebec government. The first project will be “Klaus,” written and directed by Sergio Pablos, the co-creator of “Despicable Me.”
Investissement Quebec, acting on behalf of the Quebec government, is advancing a loan of C$2.4 million ($1.72 million) to Cinesite Animation to help set up the production infrastructure in Montreal. An additional loan guarantee of C$19.6 million ($14.1 million) towards an overall budget of at least C$90 million ($64.6 million) is being advanced to the production company to help with the financing of each of the first three animated films.
Six more films are planned to follow, which will see the facility at full capacity with more than 500 new permanent jobs by 2020.
Pablos’ “Klaus,” Cinesite Animation’s first animated production, will be co-produced with SPA Studios, Atresmedia Cine and Comic Animations. It is the story of Santa Claus told from the perspective of a young, Scandinavian mailman, Jesper.
Cinesite Animation’s second animated feature is inspired by the stage show “Riverdance,” and will feature the Grammy-award winning music from the production, composed by Bill Whelan. The movie is being developed by Comic Animations and Ireland’s River Productions.
Cinesite Animation will be both a service and production company. Cinesite’s existing service deal with 3QU to make their four films remains in place with “Charming” and a second project in full swing, and the third film about to start.

SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains major spoilers for upcoming storylines for AMC's "The Walking Dead" and past plot points from the Image Comics series.BOBBI MORSE GOES SOLO IN YOUR FIRST LOOK AT MOCKINGBIRD #102/08/16 @ 10:11 am EST
What appears to be a new promotional photo for the second half of "The Walking Dead's" sixth season could very well spoil a major plot point for the television show.
The photo, which appears to originate from a Russian FOX affiliate, shows star Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) with a bandaged eye.
In the comics, Carl received a similar wound when he was accidentally shot in the face by Douglas Monroe, a character who has already died in the AMC drama. In the comics, Carl survives but loses his eye completely, initially wearing the bandage to cover the gaping wound that never fully healed before making the change to dark sunglasses.
