Doctor Who fans are likely waiting with bated breath for season seven to kick off this weekend. Luckily, we have five new episode posters, a trailer and installments of a series of mini-adventures to share with you. While the latest season will feature the continuing exploits of The Doctor (Matt Smith), this year will also mark the departure of fan favorites Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill). On the bright side, the Christmas special will introduce The Doctor’s new companion, Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) so hopefully the fans give her a chance to win their affections. Season seven of Doctor Who starts September 1st on the BBC and BBC America. Hit the jump to see the new episode posters, trailer and mini-adventures.

You know the main character, The Doctor, well… he dies. Those unfamiliar with the show might be thinking, “a spoiler warning would’ve been nice, dude”, but that’s just episode one of the sixth series. Note: Time isn’t always linear. Welcome to the wondrous world of Doctor Who. More bounding through space time after the jump in our review of the complete sixth series on Blu-ray.
The first trailer for the indie romantic drama Like Crazy has been released. The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year and stars Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence. If you’re expecting a romantic comedy, then you’re in for a bit of a shock. The trailer is an uber-downer, and kind of crushing. It doesn’t give much away in terms of story, but it’s safe to say it won’t be anywhere near a “feel good movie of the year” list. Matt wasn’t a huge fan of the movie when he caught it at Sundance, but Steve liked it more. I like the actors involved and I’m intrigued enough by the trailer, I just may need to immediately follow the film up with a Disney movie of some sort to prevent a lapse into depression.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Like Crazy also stars Charlie Bewley and Alex Kingston. The film opens October 28th.
[Update: We've updated the article with a higher sound quality version of the trailer as well as the poster]
Continuing our coverage of images from films that will be featured at January’s Sundance Film Festival, we bring you images from two of the higher profile dramas that will be screened in-competition at the festival: The Ledge and Like Crazy. The Ledge stars Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Patrick Wilson, and Terrence Howard. The film centers on a man (Hunnam) threatening to jump from the ledge of a building by noon, and the people down below who are trying to get to the bottom of what’s going on.
Like Crazy tells the story of a long distance relationship between a young American guy and a young British girl. The film features Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Felicity Jones (The Tempest), and Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone). Hit the jump to check out images and a brief synopsis for each films. The 2011 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 20 -30th.
There have been thirty-one series of Doctor Who produced since 1963, but for the first time ever, the Doctor is coming to America. Season six of the millennial relaunch — currently headlined by Matt Smith — opens with a two-part episode set in the United States scripted by Steven Moffat. The two-parter finds Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Davill) on “a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah – right to the Oval Office itself.” Alex Kingston reprises her role as River Song.
The Doctor Who Christmas specials are set to premiere on BBC America during the holiday season. The first half of season six is scheduled for spring 2011, while a second block of episodes will air later that fall. Hit the jump for the official announcement.
Whenever normal people hear the phrase “science fiction,” they run for the hills and never look back. I am not one of those people, so it was with great pleasure that I accepted an invitation to see an advanced screening of the pilot for ABC’s new series FlashForward at the Arclight in Hollywood, followed by a Q & A with the producers and much of the cast.
Like the brilliant Lost and Battlestar Galactica before it, FlashForward is not your typical sci-fi and it should appeal to geeks and normal’s alike. The makers of this show understand that it’s human drama and not cool visuals that make for compelling science fiction. Set your phasers on fun and read more after the jump!
