Optimus Prime in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'FROM MOVIES BLOG: Paramount Pictures has put the "Robots in Disguise" back in the spotlight with three new one-sheet promo posters for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Released today, the trio of images depicts two members of the heroic Autobots, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, as well as the evil Decepticon, Starscream, who we last saw flying off into space at the end of Michael Bay's 2007 blockbuster.

After the jump, you can see the full image of Autobot leader Optimus Prime from "Revenge of the Fallen," voiced once again by "Transformers" veteran Peter Cullen. Then be sure to check out all three images in our "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" photo gallery on MTV.com.

Megan Fox in 'Jonah Hex'When a batch of photos went online yesterday featuring Megan Fox on the set of "Jonah Hex," there was no shortage of commentary about the images flying around the 'Tubes. Whether it was the unbelievable corset that made her a living, breathing (and with some trouble, we have to assume) Barbie doll, or the distinct lack of much else in the way of clothes, the images of Fox had everyone talking about, well... everything except who she'll be playing in the film.

According to IMDB, Fox is tagged to play a character named Leila, but little else is known about her role. The synopsis for the film doesn't even mention a female lead, describing the "Jonah Hex" plot as follows: "In the Wild West, a scarred bounty hunter tracks a voodoo practitioner bent on liberating the South by raising an army of the undead."

'Surrogates'While it's one of the more under-the-radar comic book adaptations headed our way this year, "Surrogates" is certainly worth keeping an eye on -- especially if director Jonathan Mostow is able to effectively translate the great source material for the film.

A science-fiction mystery set in a future world where people stay at home all day and send out robotic versions of themselves ("the "surrogates" of the title) to do just about everything, the adaptation of Rob Venditti and Brett Weldele's graphic novel stars Bruce Willis as a detective tasked with investigating the bizarre serial killings of these synthetic stand-ins. Disney has been extremely coy about the marketing for the film, with viral websites and publicity events providing the lion's share of promotion, and now we have a new poster that popped up on ScreenRant that continues that trend.

Instead of showing the stars of the film, the poster focuses on the surrogates and the fictional company and culture that's made them so popular. Check it out after the jump. Read More...

Megan FoxWhile we still haven't seen Josh Brolin disfigured for the lead role in "Jonah Hex," we now have a good idea of what actress Megan Fox will be wearing for her role as Leila in the film -- and let's just say that it doesn't leave all that much to the imagination.

Over at SuperHeroHype, there are seven new photos of the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" actress in costume on the set of the live-action movie based on the adventures of DC Comics' scarred, ex-Confederate bounty hunter. The photos show Fox in two outfits -- one being the aforementioned showgirl costume, and the other a more reserved, jacket-and-hat outfit she wears inside a coach. I've posted an image of the former after the jump. Read More...

Drusilla in 'Angel'The universe of Joss Whedon's "Angel" continues to roll along in comics form, and this July, the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" spin-off will see a pair of popular characters return in the pages of IDW Publishing's ongoing "Angel" series.

The publisher announced this week that fan-favorite "Angel: After the Fall" writer Brian Lynch will not only be returning to the "Angel" series for a story focusing on vampire hunter Charles Gunn, but he'll then co-write a two-part story focusing on the vampire Drusilla -- who will make her first appearance in IDW's corner of the Whedonverse. Fans of the television series should also take note, however, as Lynch will script that two-issue Drusilla arc alongside actress Juliet Landau, who played the character in both the "Buffy" and "Angel" television series.

But wait, there's more! IDW has also provided Splash Page with the exclusive first look at the cover of the August-shipping "Angel" #24, created by artist Franco Urru and the first of the two issues focusing on Drusilla. Read More...

GambitGambit fans, this one's for you. A new trailer for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" that debuted on Facebook today offers a bit more footage of Marvel's kinetic Cajun, including a pretty spectacular shot of ol' Remy LeBeau (played by Taylor Kitsch) using his powers to go airborne.

Since I'm pretty sure there are one or two people out there who don't have Facebook accounts (yet), I grabbed a few screenshots from the new "Wolverine" trailer that reveal the threat Gambit poses both on the ground and in the sky in the upcoming film -- as well as a quick shot that appears to show the mysterious "Weapon XI" character zapping Sabretooth (just because it looked cool). Check out all of the images after the jump, with the Gambit pics posted in sequence. Read More...

'GI Joe'With a live-action "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra" movie on the way, "G.I. Joe" comics publisher IDW announced this week that several "Joe"-related miniseries will be extended. The "Joe" publisher also gave Splash Page readers the first peek at cover art for two upcoming issues.

Calling this "the year of G.I. Joe," IDW announced that its "G.I. Joe: Origins" miniseries published in partnership with Hasbro will become an ongoing series with current writer Chuck Dixon handling the next pair of "Origins" issues, and veteran "G.I. Joe" writer (and live-action "G.I. Joe" movie consultant) Larry Hama taking over for a subsequent three-issue story. IDW's "G.I. Joe: Cobra" miniseries will also be extended via an extra "G.I. Joe: Cobra Special" issue at the end of its 4-issue run.

Read on for more details on the announcement and series, art from both titles, and a pair of exclusive cover images from the final two issue of "G.I. Joe: Cobra." Read More...

20th Century Fox delivered a huge stack of new images from "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" today, so it's time to feast your eyes on yet another batch of photos featuring Logan and his pals.

Among the latest shots to whet fans' appetites for the May 1 release of the film, we received this interesting shot of a young Scott "Cyclops" Summers accompanied by fellow mutant Emma Frost. You know what? I think one of my grandparents had the same, nifty set of eyewear. But I digress...

After the jump, check out a new image of Wade "Deadpool" Wilson, as well as a cornucopia of other new "Wolverine" movie images. Read More...

'Doctor Who: Room with A Deja View'Discussing "Doctor Who"-related projects in any medium always presents a conundrum for me as a journalist. At the risk of offering up the understatement of the decade, I'm sort of a fan. I grew up watching Tom Baker (and then Peter Davison) play the British science-fiction hero, and it's been thrilling to see the character and his infinitely layered universe begin to receive so much attention on this side of the pond lately.

Recently, popular comics columnist Rich Johnston announced (with no small amount of pride) that he'll be serving up his own take on the the popular Time Lord in a one-shot comic published by IDW -- who will also be launching a new, ongoing "Doctor Who" comic book series around the same time. Titled "Room With A Deja View," Johnston's story involves the investigation of a murder perpetrated by "a member of a species that lives in the opposite direction to the timeline."

Sound confusing? Johnston explained his plans for the "Doctor Who" tale -- and where it falls in The Doctor's own, oft-debated timeline -- in the following interview with MTV News. Read More...
