Check out the preview below of the 2011 Christmas Special episode of Doctor Who, entitled “The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe”. And if the title hasn’t clued you in – yes, there is a definite Narnia theme to it (much like last year was a bit of The Christmas Carol…) (video courtesy of DoctorWhoTV)

Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a The Rock) has signed on to star in an adaptation of [asin=0982750781]The Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide[/asin], a comic book miniseries created by John Paul Russ.
Johnson has a been a very busy boy lately…after some apparent time off, he’s revived both his Hollywood and wrestling careers, currently working on G.I. Joe 2 and is headlining Wrestlemania XXVIII.
The Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide is being produced by Simon Kinberg (Elysium, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) under his Genre Films shingle.
David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), who was attached last year to direct the long-developing Disney 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea prequel movie about Captain Nemo and his creating of the Nautilus, looks to be teaming up with his Se7en screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (The Wolfman) to take the latest pass on the script.
The project has been in development for years, as Disney has been trying to find a way to bring back Captain Nemo, whether it be a remake of its own classic film or a new story. Disney had previously scuttled a version being developed by McG.
Here is a new sneak peek for the upcoming second season, Being Human, called “Epic Buzzkill”. We see Aidan burying someone or something and in the next shot it appears that Aidan has gone back on his oath not to feed upon humans. Sally, now able to interact with other physical objects, begins to “experiment” with her new found ability, while Josh informs her that the three of them can’t just go around doing whatever they want just because it feels good, to which Sally calls him an epic buzzkill. A montage of scenes from the upcoming season follows with a central theme of temptation for everyone involved.
Being Human returns on Syfy on January 16th at 9PM ET.
Catch a preview below for tonight’s episode of Sanctuary, “Icebreaker”, and then see the actors answer questions on their favorite moments in Season 4!
Henry and a team from the UK Sanctuary are investigating why the original crew on an icebreaker in the Bering Sea seem to have killed one another when suddenly, they hear noises coming from outside. The team readies their guns then Magnus and Will burst through the door. Will goes off on a lecture about Magnus and her flying skills after an apparently bumpy ride to the icebreaker. Ending his lecture, he notices the bodies and Henry fills them in on the details. We also learn that the Abnormals on the ship tore each other apart as well. Tune-in to the all new episode this Friday and watch as the team split up and decide to search the whole ship for clues.
