More spoilers for breakfast today!
The bad buzz continues. Someone saw an early trailer for this toy movie, and it was "worse than horrible." You see Dennis Quaid talking to his newly formed crack anti-terrorism squad, and then there are terrorist attacks. (Anti-terrorism squads are not like umbrellas.) And then a whole bunch of G.I. Joe guys, all dressed like Snake Eyes, jump out of a plane, and the Eiffel Tower is covered with green goop.
Then we glimpse characters, like Channing Tatum's Duke on a motorcycle and the Baroness (Sienna Miller) sliding down a bannister. And we glimpse the Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow fight, which is "about as bad as a fight from the Double Dragon movie from the early 90’s." More action scenes, then some bad CG as rockets are fired at the Joes dressed like Snake Eyes. They do a fancy mid-air twirl to avoid the rockets, and then everybody dances. (I'm kidding about the dancing part.) [Nuke The Fridge]
Sort of a very minor spoiler. Veteran director and voice actor Chris Sabat won't be voicing Shenron in the new movie, despite being listed in IMDB and various other places. [DBtheMovie]
BBC News toured the set of the Christmas special and got some very non-illuminating answers about whether David Morrissey is the Eleventh Doctor. But more importantly, check out the filming of a sequence where the Doctors are in a Cyber-factory, and Morrissey's Doctor seeing the inside of Tennant's TARDIS for the first time. [BBC]
Meanwhile, the BBC site posted a snippet from the podcast commentary for the Christmas commentary, featuring Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner, and they drop a couple hints about the 2009 specials, including a "two-part climax" and something in the Easter special that RTD worries might be going too far.

Also, RTD says the companion at Easter will be another young woman, but the companion next Christmas will be an older woman, in her fifties or sixties. [TARDIS Updated]

I know you've been wondering: Will the Legion of Super Heroes look cheesy? Here's your answer, in gallery form. Plus the villanous Persuader, who looks like he could get into the Bondage-A-Go-Go club without paying full cover, for sure. [Devoted Fans Network]
Some guy claims to have seen the final scene of this series. His reaction: "...the hell?" [Livejournal]

It’s hard to find a person who didn’t like 2012’s Dredd, a film that stands alongside RoboCop as the ultra-violent, dystopic film fans needed at the time, but a sequel to the movie hasn’t been forthcoming; in fact, over the past few years, the likelihood of a second outing for Olivia Thirlby and Karl Urban’s chin has hovered around zero.
