A report on a set visit to Predators includes a shocking plot twist. Lost's Keamy joins two new movies. There's an Inception poster. Plus Transformers, Lost, Doctor Who, Twilight, Jonah Hex, Smurfs, Airbender, V, Stargate and Fringe spoilers.
I'm honestly not sure if these stills are new — they look pretty familiar. [IGN]
But this trippy-ass poster is new, I think. [SpoilerTV-Movies]
ShockTillYouDrop visited the set of this movie. They saw concept art for the "dog handler" Predator (who wrangles the alien dogs), the "Falconer" Predator (who deals with alien bird thingies), and the Super-Predator, who's bigger and more crab-faced than the classic Predator. There's a new Giger-esque alien creature, who's a sort of red herring for the newly arrived humans. Says special effects creator Gregory Nicotero:
There's a great sequence where our heroes realize that they're being hunted. What it was was our heroes are being tracked of course and their goal is to find out what's tracking them and what's hunting them. So they set a booby trap and they are able to successfully vanquish one of these creatures and they think it's a Predator. Then, they realize that it has the same altimeter that they're wearing, this little piece of alien machinery that was put on them. So all of a sudden they went, "Wait a minute, this thing isn't even one of the Predators. This isn't hunting us. This is being hunted just like we are." So it's this kind of weird little red herring sequence.
The Predator hunting camp set is all done up with hanging bodies and open flames and stuff. At one point, the humans discover an abandoned alien mining machine. Tons more at the link. [STYD and STYD and STYD]
OMG major spoiler! Megan Fox says she'll be "less orange" in this movie, because she hated how fake-tan she was in the second one. [Stuff]
I Am Number Four:
More casting news for D.J. Caruso's "alien on the run" movie. Kevin Durand, aka Keamy from Lost, is in talks to play the alien bad guy in this movie — the commander of the aliens who are hunting down the survivors of a planetary genocide on Earth. [Heat Vision Blog]
Here's the other big project that Durand is in talks to appear in. The role he's up for is the Texan promoter of the burgeoning sport of robot boxing. [Heat Vision Blog]
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse:
Early fan reviews are out, and apparently this is the best movie yet, including amazing action sequences but also keeping the love story awesome. And the scene where Bella punches Jacob is AWESOME. And this is the funniest film in the series as well. [MTV]
There are a couple of new photos, including one showing the pasty-faced Cullen clan preparing for trouble. [CinemaBlend]
More casting news for this weird-sounding film. Tim Gunn is going to guest star, playing the head of a cosmetics firm. (Does he want to turn the Smurfs into cosmetics? Really unclear.) [CinemaBlend]
Here's a fiery new promo photo. [IGN]
Toy Story 3:
Here are a few more new images. [IGN]
The Last Airbender:
One last poster. [SpoilerTV-Movies]
Here's the official description for "The Hungry Earth":
It's 2015 and the most ambitious drilling project in history has reached deeper beneath the Earth's crust than man has ever gone before – but now the ground itself is fighting back. In the latest episode of the time-travelling drama, the Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in a tiny mining village and find themselves plunged into a battle against a deadly danger from a bygone age.
Akiva Goldsman says they wrote the season finale hoping they'd get a third season, because they planned to spend a lot of money building stuff that would only make sense if there was a third season and they could use it more. If the show hadn't gotten a renewal, they'd have had to do an eleventh-hour rewrite. [Spin-Off Online]
Michael McKean talks about how Lois and Perry will interact:
At first she's just this pretty girl that Clark has hooked up with, and gradually I start realizing that she's really sharp. She's the one-in-a-million kind of person who is born to knock over the ant hills and really see what's going on inside. She's a Woodward to my Bernstein, I guess.
A ton of promo photos from the season finale. [SpoilerTV]
Here's a sneak peek from Tuesday's "Fruition." [SpoilerTV]

There's a new press release for the final episode, which mostly just summarizes what's already happened. But this paragraph, summarizing the season so far, is interesting:
The final season has also introduced the concept of flash-sideways, portraying two parallel universes. The scenes on the island depict a universe where the bomb failed to detonate and the survivors remained, whereas the flash-sideways show a world where Oceanic 815 landed and the passengers never ended up living together. However, destiny appears to be drawing them together regardless as their lives end up colliding despite the reversal of history. Indeed, following a recent meeting with Charlie (Dominic Monaghan), Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) starts to feel as if he has led another life before and plans to ‘awaken' the other passengers on Oceanic 815 – starting with crashing his car into Locke as he crosses the road.
Our first confirmation that the two universes are divided by whether the bomb went off? (I mean, it seemed sort of obvious, but it's never been stated.) [SpoilersLost]
It sounds like Damon Lindelof has a lot of anxiety about whether people are going to hate the final episode. [Vanity Fair]
Here are a couple of promo pics from Tuesday's super secret episode, including your first glimpse of Alison Janney. [SpoilersLost]
