New Dollhouse photos show one character's return, and we learn which former locations and cast members will turn up on Lost. Plus, scary clown pics from Zombieland, six clips from Heroes' premiere, and Pandorum, Fringe, True Blood, and Stargate Universe.
A new series of stills give us a closer look at our survivalist heroes and adds a new dimension to your killer clown nightmares:
Here are a few more monstrous images from Spike Jonze's adaptation:
In an interview with SciFi Scanner, director Jonathan Mostow talks a bit about what he's trying to say about technology in Surrogates and how it's different from his work on Terminator:
Whenever there's a new gadget I'm typically the guy that will go out and buy it. Terminator is a movie that said, "Be afraid of technology because it can take over our lives." This is a movie that says, "Technology is great, it makes our lives better, but at what price?" I think a thousand years from now, historians will look back on this time as a time just as seminal as when mankind first discovered fire or invented the printing press.
The latest round of stills show off the ship and plenty of space grime:
We mentioned earlier that Mellie/November would be making a return, and in images from the third episode "Instinct," we see her not only back inside the Dollhouse, but face-to-face with Paul:
Ray Wise, whom you may remember as the smooth-talking Devil on Reaper has been cast as Howard, the previously-mentioned higher-up in the Dollhouse. [EW]
And, for good measure, here's a trio of promo images featuring Echo with a gun:
Another detail has emerged from the LAX set. An extra claims that it looks like Charlie has an overdose in the bathroom during what appears to be a pre-crash Flight 815. [Spoiler TV]
Katey Sagal is returning as Helen Norwood, Locke's one time girlfriend who supposedly died in 2006 of a brain aneurysm. Executive producer Carlton Cuse said he would like to find a way to bring back Julie Bowen as well, who played Jack's ex-wife Sarah. [TV Guide]
Reports from Hawaii indicate that the crew has been filming at the Dharma submarine dock, and many of the island's old sets are being set up again, including the Jughead tower, so we will be seeing a lot more old familiar places in addition to LAX. [The ODI]
From another set, one fan saw Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus, wearing a long gray trenchcoat and black pants, watching someone in the distance who is exiting a medical building. Eventually, it's clear the person leaving the building is non other than John Locke in his wheelchair. Locke appears very sad, keeping his head down as he wheels toward the street. Locke appears to be waiting for a ride, and sorrowfully watches a little boy playing with a red ball. The boy's ball rolls into the street and the boy runs after it, forcing an oncoming car to screech to a halt. Locke throws himself out of his chair and crawls toward the boy as if to save him, but the boy is fine and simply picks up his ball again and heads to the sidewalk. Ben watches the scene, then runs over to an angry Locke to help him back into his chair. [Lyly Ford]
Ian Somerhalder headed to Hawaii yesterday to film Boone's return. The only thing he could say is that he'll appear in several of the season's episodes. [EW]
Chances are we'll see the Newlins in the third season (and they'll be pissed). Also Alan Ball softened Eric's image a bit in Season Two to make him seem viable as a love interest for Sookie. [Televisionary]
The producers are looking to cast an actress for the role of Kiva for a three-episode arc. Kiva will be the strong-willed commander of the Lucian Alliance, and will do whatever it takes to ensure her people's safety, even at the expense of the Destiny crew. [Spoiler TV]
NBC has released the official synopsis for the season premiere:

Elsewhere, Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee) continue their noble quest to help people by promoting their abilities.

Expect Leonard Nimoy's William Bell back on October 8th, but not in the flesh. Olivia will undergo an eerie procedure to flashback to her encounter with Bell in the alternate reality and try to understand the experiments Walter and Bell performed on her as a child. Also, we'll meet another one of Walter's guinea pigs, a young woman played by Theresa Russell. We'll also encounter actor Thomas Kretschmann, who plays a "cold-blooded antagonist" with a secret, which, once revealed, we won't soon forget. [TV Guide Magazine]
In the third episode "Fracture," the team surveys a messy crime scene and Olivia visits a bowling alley:
Taylor Lautner claims that Eclipse, which is being helmed by 30 Days of Night director David Slade, will be darker than the first two Twilight films, and will appeal more to male audiences. [MTV Movies Blog]
In an interview with IESB, Callum Blue talks a little bit about his role as Zod. He mostly rehashes what he's said in previous interviews, but says that in the episodes he's filmed so far, he's cut off a person's head, but has yet to fly. [IESB]
The Paranormal Activity poster promises the film will be the scariest viewing experience of your life:
The producers are looking to cast a bevy of actors for the ninth episode, mostly Japanese actors who can speak fluent Japanese. They're also looking to cast the recurring role of Gordon, a spineless but well-spoken supervisor, and the possibly recurring role of Frank, a former soldier from Ghana with a shady military past who now works at an LA branch of Home Depot. [Spoiler TV]
And two more TV promos for the series:
In the seventh episode, we'll meet Greta Noa, a Soho art dealer and close personal friend of the mephistophelean Darryl Van Horne. Darryl has asked Greta to come Eastwick to view Roxie's artwork, and Greta may have the power to change her life. [Spoiler TV]
