The Hobbit Trailer
According to Gollum-incarnate Andy Serkis talking to IGN, we should get our first decent taste of Peter Jackson’s first Hobbit movie next month. “There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe,” he tells the site.
Nope, somebody isn’t making a Star Trek: The Next Generation spin-off. (Or a Bond one, for that matter.) Coming Soon reveals that Columbia Pictures is acquiring the rights to the Evan Mandery novel Q for writer/director David Gordon Green and producer Matt Tolmach (the team behind Pineapple Express). The book is about a man who, shortly before his wedding, is visited by his future self and advised not to get married (so far, so Buffy’s “Hell’s Bells”). And as his life progresses he gets more advice from future versions of himself, urging him to marry someone else, divorce, attend law school, leave law school, travel, join a running club, stop running, study the guitar, the cello, Proust, Buddhism, opera, and eliminate gluten from his diet.
Resident Evil: Retribution
The Daily Mail has some new pics of Milla Jovovich in costume on the set of the new Resident Evil film. Click on the image to see more.
Empire has posted some new pics from Brave, the Scottish-set new animated fantasy from Pixar, due for release in the UK on 17 August 2012. Click on through to see more.
TVLine has revealed the title of Chuck’s final ever episode, the 13th of the current fifth season, and rather poignantly (although maybe unsurprisingly) it’s going to be called “Chuck Versus The Goodbye.” Looks like the producers aren’t expecting any last minute stay of execution, then, but at least it should be a satisfying way to finish the series. It’s due to air on Friday 27 January.
A Gifted Man
CBS has ordered three more episodes of the syrupy doctor-with-a-ghost-wife drama A Gifted Man, starring Patrick Wilson, reveals TV Guide. Oh dear Lord, what have we done to deserve that?
What is Star Wars: Identities?
Nobody outside of Lucasfilm has any idea what Star Wars: Identities might be, but Fusible reports that the company registered three new domain names – StarWarsIdentities.com, StarWarsIdentites.com (sic) and sw-id.com – on 7 November through Corporation Service Company, a brand protection service. What’s George got up his sleeve now?
