November News Roundup   

November 12, 2009 We took a little break over the first week of the month, recovering from a long Halloween hangover. In any case, here's a roundup of news we neglected to cover. Doesn't look like we missed that much.

Stephen King, meanwhile, is promising yet another entry in his series -- in book form at least. ...

Despite tanking at the box office "Saw VI" still has a 3D sequel. "Saw VII 3D" has been announced for a Halloween 2010 release. ...
