Heroes, Hellboy 3, TV DVD News, Moon, World's Thinnest TV set, Comic Previews


Sci Fi Wire has posted a massive set of spoilers here about the two hour premeire, repeating news from the network.

Hellboy 3

Ron Perlman ( who is voicing Conan in the new animated film "Conan: Red Nails" as well as the unreleased, made for TV Hellboy animated film "Hellboy Animated: The Phantom Claw" )told Moviehole over here: "This ride we're on, opening number one at the box office, that's just icing on what was already the most delicious cake I'd ever bitten into. Nothing's been announced but I wouldn't be surprised if there's a third, particularly on the heels of 'Hellboy 2's success. And I know Guillermo has an incredibly well-articulated idea about what the third movie needs to be. It'll answer a lot of questions. It almost needs to happen because with the ideas that he has about closing the trilogy, it would be a shame for it go unfinished."

TV DVD News has posted info about "The Doris Day Show" (Complete Series) here, "Family Affair" (Complete Series) here, "Petticoat Junction" (Season 1) here, "The Incredible Hulk" (Complete Series) here, "Superman: The Animated Series" (Doomsday) here & here, "The Tudors" (Season 2) here and "Reaper" (Season 1) here.

World's Thinnest TV set

Sony will start shipping, in November, to Japanese retailers a 40-inch, hang-on-the-wall TV set that is just a little more than a third of an inch thick. It will be the slimmest set on the market. In Japan the set will be priced for about $4,500. In Europe a version will be available before Christmas. But no date has been spoken of for an American launch. The company says the new TV will have higher picture definition, brightness, and contrast.
