Interesting. There will apparently be eight Harry Potter films, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be produced as two films, the first to be released in November 2010 and the second in May 2011. David Yates, director of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will shoot both films concurrently.

It doesn't look likely that Jericho will be brought back for a third season. That makes me sad. I like the way it evolved from a survival story in the first season to a political thriller in the second. The network has under two weeks to decide its fate, with a decision needed before the seventh and final episode of the second season airs. The producers shot two endings: if it's canceled again, they'll go with an ending that wraps up the story; if it's renewed, they'll end on a cliffhanger. But not all hope is lost, as executive producer Carol Barbee has said that she'll approach other networks to continue the show if CBS cancels it again, starting with the Sci Fi Channel.

The first trailer for The Incredible Hulk is online here. I'll see the film, of course, but I really liked Ang Lee's Hulk in 2003 and the evidence of this trailer doesn't suggest that the new film will be an improvement on it. Couldn't they have at least kept Sam Elliott as Thunderbolt Ross? William Hurt seems miscast. One thing I'm looking forward to in it, though:
