Onetime critical favorite (and now, widely berated) filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan has officially joined Twitter. That move has allowed him to offer some additional details about his impending directorial effort, previously known as One Thousand A.E., a sci-fi film that will feature Jaden and Will Smith as (appropriately) a father-son duo who crash-land on a post-apocalyptic Earth, nearly a millennium after humankind has abandoned the planet.
The most significant piece of information Shyamalan has (so far) provided, with respect to the project, is that it has now been retitled After Earth – a move that, if nothing else, should help prevent any further associations being made between Shyamalan’s movie and animation legend Don Bluth’s infamous financial dud, Titan A.E..

Goldman also penned the (anticipated) upcoming supernatural horror literary adaptation, The Woman in Black, and is expected to eventually lend her writing talents to the currently-untitled First Class sequel.
However, before Goldman takes a stab at the followup to the aforementioned X-Men franchise reboot/prequel, she may end up penning another spooky novel adaptation: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Now that the Thanksgiving celebrations have come to an end, it’s time for the return of Supernatural. Unfortunately, this return is short-lived, as we have come to the newly crowned midseason finale. Breathe it in, folks, because this is the last episode of Supernatural for 2011.
Throughout Supernatural’s seven year run, numerous characters have jumped in and out of the series, as Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) make their way through the current apocalyptic predicament that stands before them. While the majority of these characters rarely last long enough to become memorable, there have been a few that have held strong in the hearts and minds of Supernatural fans. And then there’s Bobby (Jim Beaver).
