Aliens love to invade the United Kingdom, and the Doctor has been fending off them off since 1963 (give or take a few million years). But in the trailer for the next season of Doctor Who, we finally get to see him in action in the United States, But until then, view the trailer here:
Want more TRON? I know I do! And it looks like we won’t have to wait long. Disney is currently producing an animated series called TRON: Uprising which takes place between the first and second movies of the series. I expect state-of-the-art computer graphics, but the voice cast is impressive as well: Bruce Boxleitner, Elijah Wood, Linda Moore, Paul Reubens, and Lance Henriksen to name but a few. The series is scheduled for summer of 2011.
An Albuquerque resident and Ain’t It Cool News reader picked up a copy of the Albuquerque Journal on Christmas Eve and, in a story about the production coming to the local Albuquerque Studios for a good six months or so, noticed this line: “The Avengers’ script will blend Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger story lines as the Avengers battle with two alien races, the Skrulls and the Kree.”
Thanks for making 2010 a wonderful and fun filled year for our podcast. From our family here at Earth Station One we wanted to wish you and yours a very happy holiday season, no matter what holiday you might celebrate, and here’s to a most wonderful and prosperous 2011.
BBC America has a very special Christmas present for Doctor Who fans. On Christmas Day the network is premiering what promises to be the most Christmasy Doctor Who Christmas special ever, “A Christmas Carol,” featuring Matt Smith.
The special finds newlyweds Amy and Rory trapped on a crashing space liner and leaves the Doctor to figure out a way to save them. It is set on the alien planet Snow, in a place called Sardicktown, which is ruled over by a Scrooge-like man named Casrand Sardick (played by Michael Gambon). The special also stars opera diva Katherine Jenkins in her first acting role ever.
The producers of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” are learning the hard way that with “great power comes great responsibility.” Let’s hope no one in the cast and crew ends up with the same fate as Uncle Ben.
Paul Dini has managed to find time to write a new story starring one of his original creations, Jingle Belle. Titled Jingle Belle: Grounded and found in the pages of this week’s Top Cow Holiday Special original graphic novel, the story introduces the mythological character of Krampus — who, as the story goes, accompanies Santa on Christmas doling out punishment to those on the naughty list — to the world of Jingle Belle.
Newsarama talked with Dini — best known to fans for his work on ’90s cartoons like Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond — about the story, modern parenting, artist Stephanie Gladden and possible future plans for his original characters.

TRON Legacy has been in theaters for a handful of days now, and as a geek-driven franchise, the hardcore of hardcore fans are undoubtedly wondering what comes next.
It’s the nature of a big story like this: the adventure comes to a close, plot threads are intentionally left dangling and a whole new conversation springs up about where the story could go from here. Obviously no one on the inside is sharing any details, but director Joe Kosinski at least dropped a few tantalizing hints about the franchise’s future in an exclusive interview with Spinoff Online
After playing the bad guy Nero in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Eric Bana may be looking to get back to heroics——which this time would mean some serious bloody vampire-ass-kicking.
The 42-year-old Australian actor is apparently eying 20th Century Fox’s big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Grahame-Smith is also the writer of the successful novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which will also get the movie treatment at Lionsgate) and had at one time Black Swan’s Natalie Portman set to star as Elizabeth Bennet as a zombie-kicking heroine.
