We know the Skyline invaders are out to conquer Earth, but we don't yet know the whole story. True Blood finds one of its main witches. Tron Legacy gets an animated spin-off with an all-star cast. Spoilers for all!
Star Eric Balfour says his character Jared is an artist from New York who is visiting friends in LA when the invasion occurs. He says this event is the catalyst that forces his character to finally grow up. He also explained we don't yet know everything about the aliens:
There is a mythology and physics to what they're doing that people don't quite see in the trailer. They get a sense of it though. The biology of how everything works is really cool.

In another interview, Balfour makes it clear the claim that the whole movie was shot in the directors' apartment building wasn't just hype:
"Yes that is very true! Greg and Colin Strause kept saying, 'How do we make a movie with all the stuff we already have?' So we shot it in this high rise building that Greg Strause lived in. What was really cool about the movie was that when we were inside of the apartment building it was very intimate, and felt very close and almost claustrophobic at times. And then when you go outside on the roof of the building through the corridors of this complex, the world became huge and [there were] these gigantic city-wide alien ships and droids and 60ft monsters trying to kill us. It was pretty amazing."
Everyone's favorite cheesy, Queen-powered, inexplicably Sean Connery-costarring 80s immortality thriller is reportedly coming back to life. (We apparently forgot to cut off the franchise's head. Sorry about that.) Fast and Furious director Jason Lin is reportedly directing, while Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are handling the script. There's no word yet on who the new Connor MacLeod might be, but Vinnie Jones has been rumored to take over as the villainous Kurgan, originally played by Clancy Brown. [/Film]
An 800-pound pig named Dottie appears in the opening scene of Hugh Jackman's robot boxing movie, according to her owners. For whatever reason, the filmmakers needed a pig to appear alongside Hugh Jackman in a crucial moment, so they picked Dottie. [Livingston Daily]

Matt Smith provides a rather thematic synopsis for the upcoming Christmas special:

The new Tron movie is getting a cartoon spin-off coming in the summer of 2012. The cast is actually pretty impressive: Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner. Wood plays the main character, Beck, a computer program who leads a revolution inside the Grid. No word yet on precisely how this fits in with the series as a whole, or whether there's any chance the other stars of Tron Legacy might make any appearances, either authentically or in soundalike form.
