• Cinematical has one of the first reviews on the net of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The summary? From the same team that brought you Jar Jar Binks and the walkie-talkies in E.T..

• SF Signal posts as a bit of Sunday Cinema King Solomon’s Mines.

• Speaking of Indiana Jones, George Lucas wants Indy V to feature Shia LaBoeuf’s Mutt Williams as the protagonist, and Indy as the sidekick. I was afraid of this.

• A new trailer for Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse hits the net. Also? In an effort to thwart Tivo, Fox will air it with with fewer commercial interruptions. Excellent.

• MGM plans on remaking both Robocop and Red Dawn. Red Dawn could just never work in today’s atmosphere of Cold War cynicism.

• All your favorite scifi characters in cubical papercraft form.

Spider-Man 4 and 5 will go the Superman route with two back-to-back sequels.

• Some excellent Doctor Who concept art, courtesy of the Beeb.
