Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura talked about the challenges of replacing Megan Fox with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, confirming that she is indeed Shia LaBeouf's new love interest:

"She has a fantastic attitude, and she's been having a lot of fun. Rosie will definitely be [Shia's] love interest though. You know what? Their chemistry is proving to work out. You never really know. That's the biggest risk. Megan and Shia had very good chemistry. Fortunately for us, these two have good chemistry.

And finally, some set pics: [Transformers Live]

Tron Legacy:

I don't think we mentioned this explicitly yesterday, but in case there was any doubt - yes, Jeff Bridges is playing two roles in the new movie, and yes, the younger Bridges is Clu, the now villainous computer program he created in the original movie. [CinemaBlend]


Here's an awesome new still from the movie:


Battle - Los Angeles:

In a recent interview, Bridget Moynihan explained that what separated this movie from other alien invasion movies is the emotion:

"It's actually very emotional. I can't even tell you - when I saw parts of it recently, I was crying. It's just got such heart to the movie. The director shot such a beautiful movie, so hopefully the editing and everything is going to pull together, but it was a really good story."



Drive Angry:

The latest batshit insane Nicolas Cage vehicle has some new images out: [ShockTillYouDrop]



Here are three new images from the movie about geriatric assassins: [IGN]

Judge Dredd:

Karl Urban, Bones in the new Star Trek, is very heavily rumored to be taking on the lead role. [Cinematical]


Real Steel:

Hugh Jackman was spotted filming in Leslie, Michigan at the historic Depot Restaurant. The owners said they were approached months ago by the filmmakers to use the location because of its iconic small-town look. [MLive]


Doctor Who:

Here's a first image of Matt Smith's new jacket, which doesn't look that different from the old one. [Planet Gallifrey]


Now for a much, much better Doctor Who spoiler from one our commenters. Bluehinter, you have the floor:

There are a few new Doctor Who set pics up on Alun.Vega's flickr page. [See them here - the first shot of Michael Gambon on set is below.] Set reporters weren't able to capture much because of the tent, but we do know that Michael "Dumbledore" Gambon has been seen on set, possibly in Victorian clothes, and there looks to be some green screen work going on inside the Coal Exchange that also involved large industrial fans and crashmats. (most importantly though, we now know what the new location signs look like, so our valiant set reporters should have an easier time picking up on future location filming)

Additionally, it seems that Danny Horn is playing a vicar who gets to eat Christmas dinner with the Doctor, two boys were seen on set wearing brown striped pajamas, Matt Smith has his brown coat and red bow tie, and somebody was seen carrying two old looking tennis rackets.

I also came across an article which confirms that this season's Christmas special will be "Doctor Who's clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol."


Also, according to Moffat: "It's all your favorite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And the Doctor. And a honeymoon. And ... oh, you'll see."


Thanks Bluehinter! Can you promise to do this every Comic Con? Makes my job so much easier. And now, as promised, Michael Gambon:


The Walking Dead:

Straight from AMC, here are some newly revealed members of the show's cast. Along with Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus as the brothers,

Additional new cast members of "The Walking Dead" include Andrew Rothenberg (Jim), Juan Pareja (Morales), Iron E. Singleton (T-Dog), Jeryl Prescott Sales (Jacqui), Melissa McBride (Carol) and Adam Minarovich (Ed); all of whom are members of the "survivor's camp."



A somewhat difficult to decipher Tweet seems to say Anna Torv was filmed, as the original universe's Olivia, in a prison outfit at the top of some scaffolding, as though she was about to jump into some water. [@KJNeely]


And here are some set photos: [Fringe]


Both Nicole Ritchie and Steve Austin will reportedly reprise their villainous roles from previous seasons. They'll both be back in the same episode, likely the fourth of the season, to make life difficult for Chuck and Sarah. [The Ausiello Files]



Here are some images from tonight's episode, "All the Rage":


There will be a somewhat unexpected addition to the show's cast - Anna's mother. The show is also currently casting the leader of a radical Fifth Column sect. [TV Guide]



Warren Christie, last seen in Happy Town, is reportedly joining the new Syfy series. [Deadline]


Don't Be Afraid of the Dark:

There are so, so many new posters out for various properties today. So let's just cut to the chase and blast right through them, shall we? First up, the poster for this Guillermo del Toro produced film: []


Let Me In:




No Ordinary Family:


Oh, and some details for episode 3:

- Daphne blackmails her brother, JJ, into using his powers for her own benefit.
- There is also a subplot involving an old friend named Megan whose loneliness is obvious to Daphne who can read her thoughts.
- "Secret identities" seem to be a theme of the third episode.






And we close with...yes! Another poster. But also three new promo photos, just to mix things up.[SpoilerTV]
