New details have leaked out about Ridley Scott's Monopoly, and Harry Potter's epilogue. Duncan Jones' next movie gets comic relief. There are revealing Doctor Who/Lost pics and Toy Story 3 concept art. Plus Nightmare, Twilight, Caprica, FlashForward, Chuck and Supernatural.
Ridley Scott's still on track to direct this movie, which he'd said will have a futuristic sheen and be vaguely science fictional. But now Hasbro's Brian Goldner says the movie will also somehow deal with how the game came to exist, and somehow mine the game's 75 years of existence for stories. The real history and the fictional history will blend together somehow, allowing the movie to tell the stories of families over a brief period of time. Confusing! [MTV]
Duncan Jones' second movie, about a train bombing, starts filming soon. (Yay!) And Canadian comedian Russell Peters has landed a role as a "comical" passenger on the train. His role was recently expanded with "additional scenes and dialogue," says his publicist. [Winnipeg Free Press]
Nightmare On Elm Street:
The studio sent us some new "banner art" for this film, which still doesn't give us a good look at Freddie's face.
The infamous epilogue will be the last thing to be filmed, says Daniel Radcliffe, but they've already experimented with making him look older. "We have done a few tests and it does look really, really rather good." Also, he says Harry's daughter will hopefully be played by the daughter of makeup department head Amanda Knight, who was born just before Radcliffe got the role and who symbolizes how long they've been doing this.

Iron Man 3:
Random speculation about what might happen in the third installment, which would come out after we've seen Tony in The Avengers and might well be Robert Downey Jr.'s last outing. Fans believe it'll either be the Mandarin (most likely) or the story of Tony becoming director of S.H.I.E.L.D., from the comics. (Less likely, although the first movie did go to some length to establish S.H.I.E.L.D. as an organization.) Anyway, this is pure speculation, but it's interesting. [Comic Book Movie]
Toy Story 3:
Banks Lee visited the Walt Disney World theme parks and got a peek at a ton of concept art for this upcoming film. Including some close looks at the Sunnyside Day Care Center where the toys get stuck, as well as grown-up Andy. And you can glimpse Woody's and Buzz's escape from Sunnyside, as well as Buzz's uncomfortable encounter with the teddy bear toy. Oh, and Mr. Pricklepants. More amazing pics at the first link.

The studio replaced editor Art Jones with Nancy Richardson, who worked on the first movie and has a better handle on the characters. Judging from the hints about "balancing action with the other elements of the film," expect this to mean more emotional moments and slow close-ups. Jones collaborated with director David Slade on 30 Days Of Night, so the duo may have been trying to push this film in a more action-oriented direction. [EW]
More filming on the episode where old people go nuts and attack. Pics include the Doctor trying to climb into the room where Amy is, via the window. Also the scary old people are trying to break into the house. As one commenter says, "Thank goodness finally old people are being portrayed in a realistic way." Photos by the amazing Mormor.

Also, the titles of the fourth, fifth and sixth episodes are confirmed to be "The Time Of Angels," "Flesh And Stone" and "Vampires In Venice." And the Sarah Jane Adventures will begin filming its fourth season at the end of the month, with stories written by Phil Ford, Gareth Roberts, Joseph Lidster, Rupert Laight and former Doctor Who Magazine editor Clayton Hickman.

The Graystones, they're
the modern stone age family a dysfunctional family. Daniel and his dead daughter Zoe are going to have an intense mental stand-off in an upcoming episode. And Jane Espenson offers this tease:
Lacy is pulled deeper into a dangerous orbit. When the center cannot hold, we'll see more than one character take genuinely desperate actions that change the course of the story entirely.
You know what would make this show way more awesome? A plot where Demetri's fiancee Zoey (Gabrielle Union) decides to try and change his "flashforward" by getting involved with his business at the FBI. So Zoey starts getting "much more active" and puts a strain on Demetri's relationship with his coworkers — especially Mark Benford and Wedeck. That's just what this show needs to achieve total greatness. [TV Guide]
The older version of Mary Winchester will reappear in the April 1 episode. Meanwhile, a couple of other blasts from the past will show up in the 100th episode, airing April 15. [Fancast]
We'll find out three major revelations about Casey in the March 15 episode. And the following week, Chuck and Sarah go on a combined date-stakeout, dubbed a "statake." And someone adjusts to a brand new way of life. [EW]
Four characters contemplate leaving Burbank, and two of them actually go through with it. But given how much this show travels, we still might see those two characters again. [TV Guide]
Those of you who've been hoping the show would focus on the Skawyack love triangle in its final episodes, you're going to be disappointed, says Damon Lindelof:
We're moving into the endgame of the show [and] the stakes have moved beyond, ‘Who's Kate going to pick?' and into, ‘Is anyone going to be left alive?,' says executive producer Damon Lindelof. "I hope [viewers are] going to be satisfied with what we're doing, but we're not writing a romance novel here. I understand in seasons past how that was much more relevant. We're not neglecting it, but there's a lot of fish to fry. The elements of the love triangle - Kate's relationship with Jack, her relationship with Sawyer, Sawyer's relationship with Juliet, who's dead - are a huge part of the season. All that stuff is in play.
We will soon find out, one way or the other, whether Desmond was really on the plane in the season opener. It will not be ambiguous. Also, the next time we see Desmond, which may not be for a while, Penny will be at his side. [TV Guide]
Dark Ufo had a post with the headline "Vincent Returns," but the content has been removed at the request of the "person involved." (Vincent the dog requested they take down a post?) In any case, make of that what you will. [SpoilersLost]
Fake Locke is "very fatherly" towards Emilie de Ravin, and she seems to stress that word. [Associated Press]
In Tuesday's episode, Ben Linus faces the consequences of a lie uncovered. (Like, say, his lie about who killed Jacob?) Here are some promo pics. Is that Arzt teaching at the same school? [The ODI]
And some screencaps from the promo that aired after the other night's episode. (More at the link.) [The ODI]
Here are a couple of sneak peeks from the episode:
And here's the Canadian promo:
