Morning SpoilersIf there’s news about upcoming movies and television you’re not supposed to know, you’ll find it in here.

A new Dune movie will be "big big big," says director Peter Berg (The Kingdom.) The David Lynch version was dandy, but "that interpretation has left the door wide open for a remake," Berg says. If it wasn't for the writers' strike, he'd be working on his version of the Frank Herbert mega-novel right now. [MTV Movies Blog]. Spoilers for Sarah Michelle Gellar's next project, Cloverfield, and AVP-R after the jump.

  • Is Sarah Michelle Gellar's new movie Possession science fiction? Her character's husband and brother-in-law both wind up in comas, then the brother-in-law wakes up thinking he's the husband. Telepathy or mysticism? We'll find out in February. [Shocktillyoudrop]
  • The Russian trailer for Cloverfield showcases some previously unseen sequences of soldiers fighting the monster, plus women with fake sweat on their chests. [BloodyDisgusting]
  • Similarly, new clips from Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem show battle scenes in a sewer, a hospital and a pool party, plus a soldier doing the whole "you go on without me" martyr dance. [IESB]
  • Coming (eventually) in Heroes: more of "badass" future Hiro, Hiro's dad's secret powers, the long-promised Jessica Collins super-spy, and a cop and crimelord in New Orleans. Oh, and Monica will dress up as Saint Joan, that cheesy comic book character, more often. [Ohnotheydidnt]
  • Screencaps from the Torchwood season two trailer reveal Martha Jones in bondage! [FreemaAgyeman]
  • The new KITT from the Knight Rider relaunch has all-wheel drive, laser weapons, a "mini-KITT drone" and other features that the original lacked. But no grappling hook. [Popular Mechanics, via SFSignal]
  • Chuck has two more episodes in the can, which reveal more backstory on Adam Baldwin's character. [SpoilerTV]
