ComingSoon.net has confirmed that 20th Century Fox will debut a new 3-and-a-half-minute trailer for James Cameron's Avatar in theaters this Friday and online Oct. 29; the movie opens in conventional 3-D theaters and IMAX 3-D on Dec. 18.

A new clip from The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which aired last night on Entertainment Tonight, is now on iTunes.

Screenwriter Ann Peacock (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) will write the animated fantasy film Airman for Disney and Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers, Variety reported; based on the book by Eoin Colfer, the swashbuckling scientific story centers on Conor Broekhart, a young man born in a hot air balloon to a family close to the king who has a penchant for looking to the skies for inspiration.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Rhys Coiro (TV's Entourage) and Mia Kirshner (The Black Dahlia) will star in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, the direct-to-video sequel to the Steve Niles vampire movie.
