• Two new pics from Star Trek Into Darkness, care of the film’s official app:

• Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Host, Byzantium) has joined the cast of the Ryan Gosling directed How To Catch A Monster, joining the already announced Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Eva Mendes and Matt Smith (more on that here). [via Coming Soon]

• More casting news for the early days of Doctor Who drama, An Adventure In Space And Time. Jamie Glover (son of Julian Glover) will play William Russell, who played companion Ian Chesterton, while William Russell himself will have a cameo as a character called Harry (nice touch, inviting him to take part). Jacqueline Hill (who played companion Barbara Wright) will be played by Jemma Powell (Symmetry of Love, The Seasoning House, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, Footballers Wive$: Extra Time).

• Two great clips from Jack The Giant Slayer:

• Vin Diesel is at it again, releasing pics of himself as Riddick on his Facebook page.

• Scripwriter Lawrence Kasdan disusses his involvement with the new Star Wars spin-off films with the LA Times’ Hero Complex: “I’m trying to start fresh. There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new… George [Lucas] brought me into this part of it, and he’s stepping back from the company. He’s sort of given his blessing to everybody, and he’ll be there if you need him. I think everyone’s interested to see where this can go. It’s been some very different places over 30 years. I think with JJ, we’ll get something entirely new.”

• The second season of Touch returned to the Fox network on Friday in the US with a worryingly low 3.8 million tuning in. [via TVLine]

Community’s fourth season premiere, meanwhile, returned with a sigificant increase in ratings – 4 million viewers. That was better than its season three premiere, which is a good sign. Plus, the episode was a massive social networking hit, with more than 20 hashtags trending across the United States, including #WhoWillWinTheHungerDeans, #CoolCoolCool, #ThisIsOct19, #TroyAndAbedBackFromSummer, #AmericanSwordCooks and #FredWillard. Additionally, #NewJeff and #Chang also enjoyed some worldwide trending time. [via TVLine]

• HBO has given a pilot order to one-hour drama The Leftovers, from Damon Lindelof and author Tom Perrotta. Based on the 2011 novel of the same name, the series examines life on Earth after a Rapture-like event (the final episode of Lost?). Lindelof will co-write and executive-produce the pilot with Perrotta, and also will act as showrunner should HBO move forward with the series. [via TVLine]
