New pics from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek have broken online, along with more pics from Iron Man and some details about Anathem, Neal Stephenson's new novel.

Brad Pit may star in a new movie called The Lost City of Z. It sounds kind of like an old Allan Quatermain serial.

IO9 scored an interview with one of the designers behind Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and he said that the movie will not feature a bunch of CGI.

Holy shit! Details have broken about Neal Stephenson's new novel, Anathem! I've pasted them below in inviso-text:

Since childhood, Raz has lived behind the walls of a 3,400-year-old monastery, a sanctuary for scientists, philosophers, and mathematicians—sealed off from the illiterate, irrational, unpredictable "saecular" world that is plagued by recurring cycles of booms and busts, world wars and climate change. Until the day that a higher power, driven by fear, decides that only these cloistered scholars have the abilities to avert an impending catastrophe. And, one by one, Raz and his cohorts are summoned forth without warning into the Unknown.

What the hell is this, Batman fans?

Jane Espenson spoke with IO9 about writing for Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.
