Dollhouse finale pics reveal who's standing after the apocalypse, and a Book Of Eli featurette showcases Denzel's swordplay. A new Caprica clip shows Cylon body-image issues. Pics from Doctor Who, True Blood, Percy Jackson and Smallville. Plus Lost and Imaginarium.
The Book Of Eli:
You might have heard Denzel Washington does his own stunts in this post-apocalyptic bibliophile romp, but now you can witness quite how intense that actually gets, in this badass skirmish-heavy behind-the-scenes video. [IGN]
The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus:
So what's the deal with that magic gateway that people pass through into a land of the imagination? The San Antonio Current's exceedingly snarky review explains:
The decorated doorway, it's soon revealed, leads directly into Dr. P's imagination, where he treats visitors to a world of their own creation, and either a karmic comeuppance or some sort of ego-death-related, vaguely Eastern-ish enlightenment. And, thanks to a deal with "Mr. Nick" (Tom Waits) that ensured his immortality, Parnassus has been helping souls trip pseudo-Buddhist balls to transcendence for thousands of years - long enough, the film strongly implies, for Parnassus to have been Jesus Christ.
But Nick's about to exact his price for eternal life - the soul of oblivious Valentina - as soon as she reaches her 16th birthday. The doctor's extremely limited attempts at preventing his daughter's eternal damnation (most of which involve getting drunk and waiting for it to happen) are complicated by Anton's poorly disguised feelings for Valentina, and by a mysterious man, Tony (Ledger), whom she discovers hanging underneath a bridge. The man, upon his revival (he's swallowed a small flute to keep the noose from crushing his windpipe), claims to have amnesia, but Parnassus is sure he's the devil's messenger.
Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief:
Here are some new promo pics from this film which aims to be the next Harry Potter. [Filmofilia]
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World:
Michael Cera says he's not signed for a sequel, and he doesn't expect there to be one — it sounds like this film adapts all six of the original graphic novel series' volumes, so there's no room for a second film. [Slashfilm]
The two-hour season opener contains more answers to the show's mysteries than the whole previous season. And John Locke will be front and center, despite the whole pesky "being dead" thing. He has his strongest, most intense and most commanding storyline ever. And not only are tons of characters returning, but they have connections that you won't have guessed at. [E! Online]
Inside sources claim episode 6x11 will be Desmond-centric, and we will see Room 23 and Charles Widmore again. Also, episode 6x10 will definitely be focused on Sun and Jin. [SpoilersLost]
Have you spent hours poring over those "Last Supper" images since we posted them yesterday? So has the New York Times' Dave Itzkoff. And he has a few observations. Locke is smiling in one of them, but frowning in the other. Miles and Claire change places in the two images — maybe because Miles can talk to the dead, and Claire is possibly dead? Sun and Jin are together in one image, but separated in the other. Sayid is in the "Judas" position in both images, as many commenters already pointed out. Kate is to Locke's left, possibly meaning she's pregnant with Locke's child. (Or not.) [New York Times]
But screw the "Last Supper" pics already — check out this utterly glorious new promo pic showing David Tennant turning into Matt Smith. Here are three slightly different versions. [Den Of Geek]
The BSG prequel is definitely a more intimate story than BSG, explains producer David Eick:
It's more personal. It's how those very universal feelings that we all have, feeling ostracized from our families, feeling misunderstood by our loved ones, not feeling like our potential is being realized or appreciated, lead to these enormous sort of technological avalanches of discovery… and huge cultural shifts.
Producer and ex-showrunner Jane Espenson sums up the topics of the first season:
Robots, religion, sex, torture, late-night talk shows, murder, robot-abuse, virtual crime lords, virtual drugs, and robot-fondling.
And here's an exclusive clip from episode two. [The Daily Beast]
The description and promo pics for the final episode, "Epitaph Two: Return," are out.
ECHO RACES TO STOP AN APOCALYPSE ON THE SERIES FINALE OF "DOLLHOUSE" FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, ON FOX
Picking up from the events depicted in "Epitaph 1," the "lost" episode of DOLLHOUSE, and set in the year 2020, Echo and her surviving Dollhouse crew attempt to restore order to a devastating future world before mankind is eliminated.
The cast includes Amy Acker, Miracle Laurie, Reed Diamond, Alan Tudyk, the little girl Adair Tischler (as "Caroline,") Zack Ward (as "Zone")... and of course, Felicia Day. And Brandon Tischler plays T, who has a "special relationship" with Sierra. And here are those pics. [Fox]
Yvonne Strahovski says we'll learn quite a bit more about Sarah's early life and how she became a spy. [Fancast]
And here's a new promo for season three:
And here's what happens in episode 2x12, "What Lies Below," airing Jan. 21:
When a man enters an office in Boston for a meeting, he becomes disoriented and collapses, only to have his veins erupt and spray blood everywhere. Shortly after Olivia and Peter arrive at the scene to investigate the bizarre case, it's discovered that a lethal virus with deep ties to something very valuable is spreading, so the CDC moves in to quarantine the building and eradicate the pathogens. Isolated inside with the rest of the exposed office employees, Peter and Olivia face life-threatening circumstances, sending Walter, Broyles and Astrid on a frantic search for a solution to save them.
Also, the title of episode 2x11 has changed from "Edina City Limits" to "Johari Window." [SpoilerTV]
You might think this poster for the upcoming Justice Society episodes is fan-made, but apparently not. [OSCK]
