Wednewsday 26th December

Image of the Week: Edgar Wright's The World's End has released a screenshot of its principal cast members: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsden and Paddy Considine. None of them look too happy, which isn't surprising. Wright's third outing with Pegg and Frost tells of five friends reuniting for a pub crawl they failed to finish years ago. Unfortunately, an apocalyptic event fails to derail the pub crawl once again.

Good News: Damon Lindelof will not be returning to write the screenplay for Ridley Scott's sequel to Prometheus. Lindelof's script for the original received a lot of negative criticism for its paper-thin characters and nonsensical plot so Lindelof stepping down will please Alien fans everywhere.

Bad News: Gerry Anderson, the puppet pioneer behind Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet, has died at the age of 83. He will be remembered fondly for delivering a wealth of hit childhood television.

Classy News: Anchorman 2 has been given an official release date of 20 December 2013. Put your scotch on ice and get ready to celebrate next Christmas.

Trailer News: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone looks set to be an all-star comedic hit about rival magicians played by Jim Carey and Steve Carell. Click below for the trailer, which features plenty of digs at David Blaine's media-hyped publicity stunts.
