Just learned this yesterday…Torchwood: Children Of Earth – the third series of the Doctor Who spinoff, except it is airing as a 5 part miniseries – will debut in the U.S. on BBC America on July 20th at 9pm ET, with the remaining parts airing on consecutive nights. It will debut in the U.K. on July 6th on BBC One.
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, with an unusual midnight opening on a Wednesday morning, took it $16 million in midnight showings, the biggest for opening on a Wednesday, and near the midnight haul of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge Of The Sith. Updated 6/25: It concluded its first full day at a hefty $60.6 million, second only to The Dark Knight ($67.2M with a Friday opening), and may be on schedule for surpassing the goal of $150M through Sunday.
PumpHunter writes “Wil Wheaton, once dislike by school kids everywhere for portraying Wesley Crusher on the star ship Enterprise – a young man who actually wanted to do his homework, is going to be in an episode of TNT’s “Leverage”. Wil Wheaton told the world this via his twitter account, and posted a picture on set of himself and Leverage regular Aldis Hodge. Hodge plays Alec Hardison an all around smooth talker and computer nerd. Wheatons description of the picture suggests his role is along the same lines. Leverage returns July 15th.” Wil has definitely moved from Hated Geek to Cool Geek…he even appeared on an episode of This Week In Tech back on February.
