In today's headlines from Los Angeles, Jon Hamm opens up in a new Rolling Stone cover article about the unwanted attention his genitals are getting him, Hayden Panettiere may be planning a secret wedding, and more!
The first teaser for Scream 4 gave us a brief look at the franchise's original actors Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette mixed with the new, younger cast, but this newly released trailer takes a closer look at the newcomers.
There's also more plot details: on the anniversary of the Woodsboro murders, Sidney returns to her hometown, and not so coincidentally, a copycat killer stars picking off victims. Her teenage cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) naturally becomes one of the pursued, along with her best friends, like Hayden Panettiere. The new preview also gives a glimpse of actors in bit parts, like Adam Brody, Marley Shelton, and Alison Brie — some of whom as they're getting killed. Chilling.

"On the sixth day, God created man in his own image. Now it's up to us to figure it all out." Thus begins (in an opening narration by Sylar instead of Mohinder, which I think is a nice change of pace) the final episode in this Heroes volume, "Villains." As has been the case in many of the chapters of this volume, the episode explores what makes people good or evil, heroes or villains, etc. etc. etc.
Sylar plays a little psychological murder game with the foursome he's locked inside Primatech (Claire, Meredith, Angela, HRG), trying to make them kill each other. Meanwhile, Ando, Daphne and Parkman work to bring Hiro back to present-day and Nathan and Peter have differing opinions on what to do with the formula. For more on this episode, read more
This week's episode of Heroes shows "there's a moment in every war when everything changes. . . No matter how much we resist the change. . . in the end, we're never truly ready when it strikes."
Arthur sketches all sorts of death and destruction, and then the eclipse begins and the heroes are surprised to find their powers diminished. It's kind of funny to see the characters try to use their powers, tilting their heads or twitching their fingers, and nothing happens. It all looks so silly.
Anywho, to chat about this first part of "The Eclipse," read more
This week's episode of Heroes goes back a year, filling in some blanks and connecting some stories with others we've already seen. Is it wrong that I might've liked this episode more than the others recently because it includes bits of season one?
The episode goes back to show how some of the heroes became villains in the first place. As the opening narration explains when Hiro goes all white-eyed, "To fight evil, one must know evil. One must journey back in time and find that fork in the road where heroes turn one way and villains turn another." From there we see what Hiro sees — the secret goings-on in some of the heroes lives a year ago.

In this week's episode of Heroes, we alternate between the present day and four years in the future, discovering what will apparently happen unless certain heroes take some action in the present day, stat. This version of the future is bizarre (especially Sylar's story!) and scary (cold-hearted gangster Claire). It will be interesting to see when/if/how it can be avoided.

Am I alone in thinking this premiere was kickass? I feel like they upped the comedy factor and threw us some crazy new developments. It was thrilling and gruesome and surprising and funny. . . My faith in Heroes is fully restored. I'm not sure I needed both this episode and the one that came after it; I forgot how much they pack into each episode. After two of them my brain was starting to overload. So, here we can discuss the first of the two episodes, "The Second Coming," in which I think the best part was at the end (see: the end of this post after the jump). A post about "The Butterfly Effect" will follow this one.
After the jump you'll find spoilers, so now that you're warned, read more
We're so close now — "Heroes" returns tomorrow night for a second season! To start getting pumped up for Monday night's premiere, tell me which of the main heroes' superpower you would most like to have. (And I'm including Isaac because he was a central character in the first season, and because I think his power was super cool.)
And check back on Tuesday for my recap and so you can tell me what you thought of the first episode!
