Today's spoiler diet: Terminator Salvation reviews! Transformers 2 images! Land Of The Lost TV spots! Human Target suckage! Plus major revelations from Spider-Man 4, Lost, Gamer, Thor and Planet 51. Spoilers are nutritious!
A few more early reviews are out, including some details. When Serena Kogan visits Marcus Wright on death row, she's wearing a head scarf to cover her baldness. She wants to turn Marcus into a cyborg, and he agrees in exchange for a kiss. "So that's what death tastes like," he says, which is not what I'd want to hear after kissing someone.
Kate Connor's pregnancy is not even mentioned in the film, even though she's visibly pregnant. Her interactions with her husband are boiled down to just a couple of scenes where she tells him to be careful.
Kyle Reese serves up a delicacy, two-day-old coyote. ("Better than three-day-old coyote," he quips.) Everybody wears snazzy camo pants and vests. Somehow a giant Harvester robot manages to sneak up on a group of people in a gas station despite the fact that it moves slowly and thunderously. Also, the bleak original ending was replaced with a "milquetoast crowd pleaser."

Here are a couple new images. (More at the link.) [Cinematical]
Allison Lohman explains her character in this film:
I play Trace. She's part of the resistance. I try to get Gerard Butler back to his family. It's this dystopian future where humans are playing humans on a global scale through video games.
And she says the evil future is "debaucherous" and the film is more serious than the Crank films, from the same directors. [Sci Fi Wire]
Land Of The Lost:
Also, Anna Friel says her character isn't just the standard wimpy movie chick: she's strong and ballsy and a Cambridge graduate. Friel is already signed up for the sequel. [Sci Fi Wire]
The fourth picture will delve into Peter Parker as a human being more deeply than the first three. It'll bring the character to life with a level of detail you haven't seen before, says Sam Raimi. [Sci Fi Wire and L.A. Times]
Justin Long says he plays an alien who's the Henry Thomas character in this reverse version of E.T.: He takes in Dwayne Johnson's astronaut, who visits his planet. [Sci Fi Wire]
Here's the casting call for the ultra-important supporting character, Volstagg:
Male. Early to mid 30s. 6'2" or taller. Obese but agile, fun, good-hearted, a warrior but prefers eating over fighting...SUPPORTING; OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITIES.
Elizabeth Mitchell will be a regular on the V reboot, so don't expect Juliet to be a regular on Lost as well. However, she will be in an unspecified number of Lost episodes next year, so it's possible she really did survive the bomb going off in her face. [EW]
Just how vapid will this comic-book adaptation be? Behold four new clips. [Target419.com]
And here are some promo pics. Shiny! [SpoilerTV]
