Today's spoilers include a desription of some Star Trek concept art that was on display in L.A., and yet another batch of Transformers toy pics. There are new pics for Day The Earth Stood Still and new synopses of Special and Timecrimes. Plus a new hint about the hypothetical Hulk 3. An extra from Lost posted a self-portrait that confirms your craziest season five theories, and some new Heroes images confirm a genuinely startling death coming up. Plus there are spoilers for Sarah Connor, Brave And The Bold, Survivors and Stargate. All the flavors of spoilers await you, below. Star Trek: Two more grayscale posters, this time showing Uhura and Nero. The most revealing thing about is that you can gaze upon Eric Bana's crazy tattoos up close and in detail. [GeeksOfDoom]
Sci Fi Wire saw some concept art for the movie, including uniforms, phasers and tricorders reminiscent of the original series. There were also a larger and more complicated version of the shuttlecraft from the original show, a medical evac shuttlecraft with red and white markings like a regular ambulance. The Klingon warbirds looked like the ships from the original show, but with some details changed. Plus there was a Starfleet Academy lecture hall with the Golden Gate Bridge visible in the background, and the Enterprise shuttle bay with the familiar launch doors but much larger and with more shuttles inside. (Not unlike the Galactica's flight deck.) One drawing depicted a starship nacelle with "quantum warp ports." A "medical tricorder" looked like the communicators from Galaxy Quest, and there was Kirk's futuristic motorcycle, a green-lighted BMW (product placement!) with no spokes or hubs in the rims. Most excitingly, there was a "time ship" that was circular and blue, with "a crescent-shaped element at the front." [Sci Fi Wire] Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen: Another day, another batch of toy spoilers. This time, there's yet another blurry pic of a Soundwave toy, this time showing his head and shoulders. And the good news is, he's got a design very reminiscent of his 1984 version, with a blue "crown," faceplate and visor. Meanwhile, there's official packaging for the "Superion" toy, and the packaging includes a spooky set of eyes at the top of the box. Apparently those are the eyes of the Fallen, the movie's ultimate villain. [TFW2005 and TFW2005]
The Incredible Hulk 2: Tim Blake Nelson is still on board to play the Leader in the sequel to this past summer's less-successful Marvel adaptation. If it ever happens, which is still a bit dubious. [MTV] Special: Here's a new synopsis for the medical-experiment superpowers indie movie:
Michael Rapaport plays Les, a parking enforcement officer who is lorded over by his micromanaging boss and fanboy friends Everett (Robert Baker) and Joey (Josh Peck). Out of boredom, Les unceremoniously decides to participate in a scientific study that documents the effects of a new medication; what he soon discovers is that those effects are not only feelings of energy and wellness, but genuine superpowers, starting with levitation and moving on to teleportation and time travel. But when Dr. Dobson (Jack Kehler) informs him that his results are not only unusual but deadly to the study's proprietors, Les finds himself on the run from Jonas (Paul Blackthorne) and Ted Exiler (Ian Bohen), two suit-wearing executives who appear to have developed superpowers of their own.
[IGN] The Day The Earth Stood Still: Here are some new stills from the Keanu Reeves remake. They look very similar to stills we've seen before, but maybe show a bit more of the action sequences. [IESB via AceShowBiz]
Timecrimes: Shocktillyoudrop summarizes this time-travel thriller:
Timecrimes is the cyclical story of Hector (Karra Elejalde), a husband attempting to piece his life together detail by detail after traveling back in time in less than hour. Yes, less than sixty minutes. Yet somehow, in some way, he manages to muck things up good by roping in a young woman, a scientist and a scissors-wielding killer whose face is wrapped in gauze.
Lost: Looks like those rumors about the island getting zapped back to the 1970s were spot-on. An extra who played "mom on swing" and pushed an eight-year-old girl has spilled some beans. She wore 1970s fashions to play the mom, which included walking to a fence and talking to a "Dharmite." She walked right past Sawyer. And later, she herself got to play a "Dharmite," and here's her Girl-Scout-esque uniform. (It's sort of odd that Lost will be going back to the 1970s, just as it's paired with the Life On Mars remake.) [SpoilersLost]
And here's a longer version of that Fray music video featuring footage from season five. Are Juliet and Sawyer holding hands? And there's a theory that the Aijra airlines thing has to do with Sun chartering a plane to take her back to the island to look for Jin. [E! Online]
Heroes: Here's the official description for the Dec. 1 episode, "Our Father," which is the penultimate episode of the "Villains" storyline:
Hoping to find a way to stop Arthur (guest star Robert Forster), Hiro (Masi Oka) and Claire (Hayden Panettiere) band together and travel back in time 16 years to when Kaito (guest star George Takei) gave baby Claire to H.R.G. (Jack Coleman). Meanwhile, Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and the Haitian (guest star Jimmy Jean-Louis) team up to finish off Arthur Petrelli for good but are interrupted by Sylar (Zachary Quinto). Elsewhere, in the lab, Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) has a major breakthrough with the formula that will likely change everything.
And here are some pics from that episode. (Sorry they're kind of tiny.) These pics seem to confirm some rumors, including the rumor that Claire dies — but then when the Eclipse thingy is over, she comes back to life. Claire joins forces with Arthur, who wants to keep her alive, and meanwhile Sylar and Elle join Angela's team. Meanwhile, Peter and the Haitian succeed in shooting Arthur Petrelli dead. And then in the following episode, the end of "Villains," Claire will shoot HRG dead. For reals. Claire will feel like her dad is against her, but later she'll regret shooting him for the rest of her life. [Heroes Television] Here's a promo for tonight's episodes of Heroes and Chuck. [SpoilerTV]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Here's what happens in the Dec. 8 episode, "Alpine Fields," which is the last one until Feb. 13: "Sarah and Cameron work to save a family on the list with a connection to Derek in the future. Meanwhile Jesse's life hangs in the balance." [SpoilerTV] Also, there's a casting call for episode 17, "Ourselves Alone." We'll meet Molly Malay, a Sarah Palin-esque worker with the Department of Child And Family Services, and a high-priced lawyer named KO Simpson who has a bodyguard. Also, there's an overworked nurse in a doctor's office, and a high-priced hooker. [SpoilerTV] The Survivors: The remake of the 1970s plague show aired yesterday, and we'll have a review/recap later today or tomorrow. But for now, one major spoiler — the show's surprise death was Jenny (Freema Agyeman), a character who survived the entire run of the original version. (But a lot of Jenny's personality is bestowed upon Anya, a doctor, who does survive the first episode just fine.) Also, good-looking playboy Al Sadiq meets up with devout muslim boy Najid, and changes for the better. [SurvivorsBBC] Here's how Paterson Joseph describes his character, Greg Preston:
Greg is Mr Independent/Practical. He wants to be on his own, on a small farm maybe. He's had a very corporate lifestyle but even before the virus hits his work as a systems analyst was making him feel like he was trapped in an office the whole time. He was making a lot of money but wasn't connected with the land or with the seasons. He just felt a pull to it. So much so that he kind of lost his family.
[BBC] And apparently, nothing is resolved in the first miniseries, so you'd better hope there's a second series at some point. [Sky] Batman: The Brave And The Bold: This pop-art-influenced fun Batman cartoon won't have any links with previous animated series featuring the character. Settings will range from Mars to Atlantis, and genres will include science fiction and mystery. And at some point we'll meet Robin, and he'll be Dick Grayson. [MediaBlvd] Stargate Atlantis: In the Dec. 5 episode, "Infection," we'll get to see what the big bruiser Wraith, the guards with the masks, look like when their masks come off. And it isn't pretty. [Sci Fi Wire] Stargate Universe: The show's opening storyline may be expanding from a two-parter to a three-parter. And one character, Dr. David Rush, is looking like a "handful." The show's mid-season two-parter, episodes 10 and 11, will include betrayals, twists and ticking clocks, plus a surprise guest star. And SGU will be more "intimate" than other Stargate shows, because it's about a group of people trapped on a small ship in deep space. [Gateworld] Additional reporting by Katharine Duckett.
