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

Today's spoiler-blast includes a new Terminator Salvation clip and our first Star Trek 2 hints. Plus Land Of The Lost TV spots, and Battlestar Galactica TV movie talk. Plus Lost, Transformers, Heroes and Smallville. Spoiler-alert!


Terminator Salvation:

McG introduces a clip (shown to Pizza Hut customers) which details a Harvester's attack on a trashed 7-Eleven, and shows us how it developed, every step of the way:


About 10 minutes into the movie, there's a scene of rebirth, where Marcus Wright (whom we saw die at the start of the movie) crawls naked out of the mud and screams, under a lightning-blitzed sky. The scream lasts about 13 seconds (although the scream may get tweaked, because it sounds a bit silly) and it signals the start of Marcus' journey, says McG. [Esquire]

Also, Bryce Dallas Howard appeared on Craig Ferguson, and they showed a clip and talked about the movie. [Sarah Connor Society]

Star Trek 2:

We're going to have to figure out if this movie is Star Trek 2 or Star Trek 12. Either way, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman hint that classic characters like Khan could turn up, since they've never met our heroes in this alternate timeline. And they say we'll never have to talk about time travel again, because the time-travel device was destroyed at the end of the first movie. They also hint Leonard Nimoy may never reappear. [MTV]


Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:

Michael Bay posted a couple of pics of himself on this movie's set to his official site. [IESB]

Land Of The Lost:

A couple of TV spots, with some new footage, including Chaka freaking out and Will Ferrell repeating "No immediate danger" over and over.


Battlestar Galactica: The Plan:

Kate Vernon gives a tiny hint as to how Ellen Tigh is portrayed in this new TV movie:

[T]hey've written me with more heart and more compassion, and this intention to bring some enlightenment and peace, and I got to expand a character, just show a deeper side of myself. So you take the core of your character and you just play those circumstances.

What's the sacrifice Ben will be asked to make in tonight's episode? Michael Emerson explains: "Ben has sacrificed his leadership and authority [to Locke], but he's also going to be asked to serve someone else's interests, not his own." Oh, and it doesn't sound like Ben dies in the finale. [TV Guide]



Which two characters are dying in tomorrow night's finale? Apparently the top contenders are Cassidy Freeman, Aaron Ashmore, Justin Hartley, Kristin Kreuk and Sam Witwer. (Is Kreuk even in the episode?) And Allison Mack is an outside possibility as well. [E! Online]


And in fact, Mack says she's definitely signed for season nine... but she hints that she may make an "exit" before the already-certain season ten. [IndieWire]


In the first two episodes of season four, we'll be meeting "Young Ando" and his friend "Young Kimiko," both of whom are around 12 years old, give or take. Sounds like Kimiko maybe a couple years older than Ando. Will this be part of the promised time-traveling shenanigans? [SpoilerTV]

Hmmm... I nominate Danny Trejo to play Kahn.
