A new character joins Men In Black III. The Let The Right One In remake revamps vampires. There's a "red-band" Hot Tub Time Machine clip. Millar talks Kick-Ass 2! Jewel Staite's Warehouse 13 role will freak you out. And more...
Men In Black III:
Yes, this "threequel" is still going forward. Rumor has it Josh Brolin will star, and there's a new character named Yaz (who might be a new agent.) Contenders to play Yaz include Sacha Baren Cohen and Flight Of The Conchords' Jemaine Clement. The screenplay was written by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Igor, Idiocracy). [Bloody Disgusting]
Let Me In:
Star Chloe Moretz (who hasn't seen the Swedish original, Let The Right One In) says her character, Abby, is not "cool" like most movie vampires, and hints there's a "Jekyll and Hyde" thing going on here:
The character of Abby…I mean, usually a lot of movies glamorize being a vampire. It's pretty, it's cool, you look awesome! The way we did it was that it's not cool to be a vampire. It's a burden that she has to carry with her, not this fun, cool, interesting thing. It's scary, deep, and dark, this devil inside of her. The vampire is different than Abby. It's like her alternate personality, and when it takes her over, she has no control.
Toy Story 3:
Here's another new character poster, this time showcasing a toy named Stretch. [SpoilerTV-Movies]
It still sounds as though this remake is dead in the water, but original star Jane Fonda wants Kate Bosworth to take over her iconic role. Although, does Fonda have any control over this? Doubtful. [THR]
Hot Tub Time Machine:
Don't hold your breath for the film to delve into the rules of time travel, or even to try and make sense. Rob Corddry says that in the writers' conferences on the movie's time-travel themes, they basically just said "fuck it" and decided to write more jokes instead. And that guy in a bear suit, whom you see in the trailer, becomes a major character in the film. Also, there's a squirrel. [Sci Fi Wire]
Mark Millar hints about how the end of the first movie would be developed in the sequel, if one happens. If we get a second film, Red Mist's villainy will be developed much further, says Mark Millar. "The second movie, it's going to get very, very dark what goes on with him." Also, the classic "superhero's secret identity gets revealed" plot will come into play, and we'll see just how bad it is for Dave when people find out he's Kick-Ass. [IGN]
Could this show get any more awesome? Apparently yes, it could. To wit, Jewel Staite is having a guest spot in at least one season two episode, and she tweeted that "You Browncoats are gonna freak" when the episode airs. The show returns July 13. [Sci Fi Squad]
Here's a "deleted scene" from last week's episode, "Know Your Enemy," plus a clip and some stills from this Friday's new episode, "The Imperfections Of Memory." Given that the "deleted scene" from the previous week's episode, "There Is Another Sky," set up a lot of developments in "Know Your Memory," the fact that Amanda is demanding to see Zoe's avatar could actually play out this week. Also, what the hell is Zoe doing there when the Cylon doesn't appear to be? [CapricaTV]

Here's a new promo that aired during the Oscars. [SpoilerTV]
The mastermind behind the blackouts is going to kill some people coming up, says Dominic Monaghan. [Fancast]
CIA agent Vogel, the agent who hassled Mark and Demetri at the Hong Kong airport, is joining the FBI investigation, and will be a major thorn in Mark's side going forward. But there's a reason why Vogel's there, and he plays into Mark's "flashforward." [TV Guide]
The Martian Manhunter is far more enmeshed in the Checkmate mystery than anyone realized, and this fact makes Clark suspicious. Also, the Manhunter has a big face-off with Amanda Waller, which doesn't end well for the alien. [Fancast]
So let's see... Aaron is definitely important and he will play into the finale. And we will see Walt again in some form. And Nestor Carbonell says the question of Richard Alpert's allegiances is "complicated." In the Richard-centric episode nine, we'll get "big reveals" about the island, but there'll be even more huge revelations in episode 15, now shooting. [E! Online]
Yunjin Kim says Sun and Ben are "okay" now, and she's not going to be hitting him again. And the L.A.-verse relationship between Sun and Jin is very "different," hence the use of Sun's maiden name. And she says the Sun/Jin reunion will happen, but not in the way the viewers expect. [New York Magazine]
Elsewhere, Kim says she's shot a Sun/Jin reunion scene, but it's very brief "for a good reason." (I wonder if she's referring to the bit where Jin apparently hallucinates that he's being reunited with Sun, but it's actually a female scientist?) We shouldn't wonder about the fact that Jacob visited Hurley after he'd already been to the island once, rather than before Flight 815 crashed — instead, we should wonder how long Jacob had his eye on Hurley, says Damon Lindelof. Even in the universe where Flight 815 landed safely, it sounds like Michael is still dead. And the date on Claire's chart was her due date, not the date of her exam.
We may learn how L.A.-verse Locke got paralyzed. We will definitely see Vincent the dog again, and he will get a happy ending. We may see Jack's ex Sarah (Julie Bowen) again, since she's already going to Hawaii to shoot a sitcom episode. The fact that Kate's name popped up in the lighthouse but not in the cave may be significant — we should wonder about the relationship between the lighthouse and the cave. The show will not explain why women can't have babies on the island — we already know enough to figure it out for ourselves. (It has to do with something that happened in 1977, hint hint.) The Jacob that's appearing to Hurley is definitely the real Jacob, not an imposter. Naveen Andrews says Sayid is not dead, he's the same guy as ever, just without a soul. [TV Guide Magazine]
"The skaters and the jaters might hate" the show's ending, "but the eternally confused might finally find a light at the end of the tunnel," says Damon Lindelof. [NorthJersey.com]
Michael Emerson refers to a character named "Richard Widmore" in this interview. Is that a slip of the tongue? Or an incredibly deep and meaningful hint? (Probably just a slip of the tongue.) [Doc Arzt]
Lindelof insists that the "flash sideways" sequences are absolutely vital:
People are saying [they] don't need these stories and all we can say is they're absolutely 100 percent necessary to tell the story of Lost, and hopefully by the end of the season it will be more obvious as to why.
The show is filming more scenes at a school where it's already filmed some sequences recently, and this time the Health Room will be transformed into an Infirmary. [SpoilersLost]
