X-Men Origins: Wolverine:
A few new TV spots give you the lowdown on the 10,000 mutants in the movie:
The race Goku comes from, the Saiyans are evil - they come to a nice planet, kill all the intelligent life, and then sell it to the highest bidder, says James Marsters. And once again, Piccolo doesn't die in this film. Marsters is signed on for two more. [Sci Fi Wire]
Bulma's car is a yellow speedster with a black racing stripe, a Can-Am Spider, which appears in the early high-school sequences. Yamcha, the film's "Han Solo," drives a camouflaged big-wheeler based on the Hummer. Yamcha is a "hustler and a swindler," says actor Joon Park. Also, Goku and his love interest Chi Chi have a fight in the temple courtyard. And Piccolo travels to Earth using an alien Genesis Chamber, including a metal throne that Piccolo uses to control the Dragonballs.
In a crucial scene, Goku stands over the fallen body of one of his companions, and Piccolo gloats that he's won. Goku summons his last remaining strength and says, "My grandfather taught me the first rule is, there are no rules." Then he attacks Piccolo. [Comic Book Resources]
They Came From Upstairs:

David Tennant explains what to expect from Saturday's new episode, "Planet Of The Dead." Michelle Ryan "in a catsuit" steals something important. She jumps on a double-decker London bus to escape, and winds up falling through a wormhole in time and space to another planet. There, she and the Doctor are attacked by the red, flying Swarm, plus the alien Tritovores. Plus something sinister is happening back on Earth. The Doctor can't get back home, because he's trapped like everyone else. But "luckily we manage to communicate through the worm hole because we doctor a mobile phone." The episode is mostly light but with some dark moments, and at the end there's a hint that things are about to get much darker. This is the last time the Tenth Doctor gets to have fun. [BBC]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:
Here are two clips from tonight's season finale - which we still hope won't be a series finale. No fate but what we make! [Fox]
Here are some photos from episode 11, "Briar Rose." And do you notice a familiar face? Apparently Alan Tudyk plays "Stephen Kepler, the agoraphobic designer of the Dollhouse," who helps Paul Ballard with his investigation. (Remember, we were told we'd meet Alpha before we knew it was Alpha.) Meanwhile, Echo helps a young girl come to terms with her traumatic past. And Boyd protects the Dollhouse from an intruder.

ABC released a synopsis for its new reboot of the stealth alien invasion show:
Today, the world woke up to find spaceships over every major city. The Visitors claim to have come in peace, bringing gifts of medical miracles and technological breakthroughs. They promise to do no harm. They're lying. Most people believe the aliens have arrived just when we needed them most. We're eager to embrace their generous offers of help, but while tracking a terrorist cell, Homeland Security agent Erica Evans stumbles upon something far more sinister. When her partner tries to kill her, Erica discovers that the aliens have plans to infiltrate our governments and businesses, planting seeds for their plot to control mankind. Convincing anyone of the truth will be impossible because the Visitors have two powerful weapons. First, they've given the people faith with their reassuring presence and gifts. Second, they've rallied our youth. Thousands of teens, including Erica's son, have been recruited as 'Peace Ambassadors' but they're actually serving as unwitting spies. Erica's violent introduction to the truth thrusts her into the resistance movement, where she joins forces with Ryan, a rogue alien driven to save humanity. She'll have to balance her covert activities with her job, and her role as a mother, fighting to protect her son Tyler even as he joins forces with the enemy.
The producers answer some questions in their official podcast. Desmond's wound really is serious, and his life may be in danger. We'll learn more about the ramifications of John Locke's shocking resurrection. Next week's outing, "Some Like It Hoth," gives a sense of comedy to the show. And after that, it's a non-stop rollercoaster of events. [SpoilersLost]
Will Kate and Sawyer really get back together in season six? Here's an utterly baffling response from E! Online:
Ummm...not to spoil everybody for everything ever, but based on reading Harry Potter up through Half-Blood Prince, I can reliably tell you that Ron and Hermione get together in Deathly Hallows. Either that or everybody dies, but Hermione-Draco? Not ever gonna be canon.
(Who's Draco in this example? Juliet?) Meanwhile, next week we'll learn why Miles was on the freighter, and also whether he's been on the island before. [E! Online]
Also in next week's episode, Naomi makes a return appearance, despite being dead. Apparently, it's a flashback, and she hangs out with Miles in it. [TV Guide]
Here's what happens in the last few episodes of the season. In "Midnight," someone is mutilating tons of bodies and draining all their spinal cord fluid out. Their investigation leads them to a scientist with possible ties to the ZFT bioterrorist cell, and then they're shocked to discover the identity and motive of the killer. The kills get more and more frequent, until our heroes take desperate measures to stop them.
In "The Road Not Taken," Olivia starts dreaming while wide awake, seeing stuff that's not there. Investigating the case of a woman who spontaneously combusted, Olivia decides to use her visions for clues. Meanwhile, Walter admits prior knowledge of the ZFT manifesto. And Peter's secret project is revealed, and turns out to be useful in solving the case.
And in the finale, "There's More Than One Of Everything," someone with close ties to Fringe Division is attacked, and David Robert Jones comes back. And then Walter disappears with no explanation. [SF Universe]
An upcoming episode called "The Rapture" features a whole lot of Castiel, judging from these pics. [SF Universe]
