Whats up everybody, Here's this week's update.

News and Rumors:

The rumor that Steven Spielberg is going to direct the World of Warcraft movie has been confirmed to be fake.

A rumor that is sure to make some people happy, Comedy Central has plans to bring "Futurama" back to television with 13 new episodes. New and old episodes will begin airing in 2008, and all the main voice actors have agreed to return.

The official novelization of "Snakes on a Plane" will be hitting book-stores on July 11th.
