Greetings, spoiler-mongers! Today there are tidbits on Star Trek, Transformers, Watchmen and Dragonball. Also, a Lost and Heroes deathwatch and clips from Fringe and Sarah Connor. Plus Chuck, Supernatural, Clone Wars and Kyle XY. LOLspoilers!
Tyler Perry says he plays the Commander of Star Fleet (I think he means Starfleet Academy) and he has just two scenes with Kirk and Spock. (I'm guessing they involve Kirk getting in trouble after that Kobayashi Maru stunt, which sounds like it doesn't get him a commendation for original thinking in this new timeline.) [Black Voices]
Heroes star (and friend of J.J. Abrams) Greg Grunberg says he has "a little something" in this movie, which "you'll have to find." [E! Online]
Director Zack Snyder has a small cameo in the film - he's a guy in army fatigues standing in the background when the Comedian is burning a bunch of Vietnamese people. [Slashfilm]
Michael Bay explains that this new movie is darker and more epic than the first one. Also, the robots have a lot more personality, and Bay was able to convince them to emote more. [Collider]
Original creator Akira Toriyama says he said "Huh?" when he first read this movie's script. But then he saw that some good people were involved with it, so maybe you can just view it as "the Dragonball of another dimension." Sure. And here's a new pic of Emmy Rossum as Bulma. [DB The Movie and DB The Movie]
In case you hadn't already guessed, this week we'll find out exactly what Jin's been up to the past four episodes, and what he experienced during all this time shifting. [L.A. Times]
And Jin actually develops a beautiful friendship with the young Danielle Rousseau, and he may understand more French than he's letting on. Also, Jin and Sun are reunited sooner than you think, in a really surprising way. Someone dies this week, and it may be Charlotte, despite Rebecca Mader's assurances that Charlotte is safe "for now." [E! Online]
It sounds as though Daphne really is dead after she got shot last night. And she won't be alone: around episode 3x20, Tracy (Ali Larter) gets "broken up" in a way that will put her in a grave. (But the producers have already promised Larter an awesome new storyline in season five. A new twin? Or a resurrection?) [E! Online]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:
Thomas Dekker gave an interview and showed off a sneak peek from Friday's episode. [Sarah Connor Society]
Olivia may have some kind of childhood tie to Massive Dynamic from when she was a kid, but it's really unclear. [E! Online]
In upcoming episodes, we see the inside of Fulcrum HQ, and it looks like Tron. And we find out what Fulcrum thinks is going on at the Buy More, which is nowhere near the truth. Arnold Vosloo plays a mega-badass Fulcrum agent. [E! Online]
Sam is being drawn to the dark side, just like those Skywalker boys. And "parts of" Sam are in love with Ruby. Meanwhile, that new Winchester brother is only in one episode, for a reason. [E! Online]
The Sam-Dean tension reaches a boiling point in the season finale, leading to a smackdown that makes last week's blowup look like a kindergarten tiff by comparison. [EW]
The third season finale (which is also the series finale now) will include some good mythological explanations and some good relationship closure. It ties the whole series together - but then the last 20 seconds of the episode are a major cliffhanger that blow the whole thing open again. Maybe there'll be a DVD movie? We can hope. [TV Guide]
Star Wars: Clone Wars:
In Friday's double feature, "Blue Shadow Virus" and "Mystery Of A Thousand Moons,"
Padmé Amidala is captured while searching for a secret Separatist bio-weapons lab run by Dr. Nuvo Vindi (portrayed by science-fiction icon Michael York), a scientist as cold and calculating as he is evil. While they manage to find the mad doctor and uncover his scheme, they are too late to prevent the release of his deadly concoction - leaving Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi just 48 hours to find the elusive antidote...
Once Padmé, Ahsoka and the clones become infected, however, the stakes are raised, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to sort out a solution...Their quest for the cure serves as a perfect vehicle to spotlight the relationship between the two Jedi, emphasizing their differences as well as their respect for one another.
