FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER

20th Century Fox on Monday released two new images from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer as part of its summer preview.

The image above shows Chris Evans as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Michael Chiklis and Ben Grimm/The Thing.

The photo appears to be from the massive Shanghai set in Vancouver. Filmmakers turned an entire street to look like China for the film.

SPIDER-MAN 3 ROUNDUP

7-Eleven has launched its Spider-Man 3 promotion, with more than 5,800 participating stores.

Highlighting the promotion are three Spider-Man 3 lenticular Slurpee beverage cups, featuring Spider-Man, Sandman and Venom. The Spider-Man cup features Spidey changing from his red to black costume.

There will also be online contest on the Slurpee.com web site, with prizes including three trips to walk the black carpet at the U.S. premiere of Spider-Man 3 in New York City April 30.

"This is one of the coolest cups we have ever designed, perfect for a perennially cool product like Slurpee," said Rita Bargerhuff, 7-Eleven senior marketing director. "We worked very closely with Columbia Pictures to create lenticular illustrations that would make great collectibles for any Spider-Man or Slurpee fan. I expect the cups will sell quickly."

HEROES: "0.7 PERCENT"

NBC has released eight images from "0.7 Percent," the next new episode of Heroes scheduled to air on Monday, April 23.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"After 'helping' Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) search for more people with special abilities, Sylar's (guest star Zachary Quinto) rampage continues with two 'heroes' being confronted by the stronger-powered serial killer. Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) must factor what he's learned from Linderman (guest star Malcolm McDowell) into difficult decisions that will shape the future -- for him, his family, New York City and the world. As Thompson (guest star Eric Roberts) uses every tool at his disposal to find Claire (Hayden Panettiere), Linderman drafts Jessica (Ali Larter) into his far-reaching plans. Meanwhile, Hiro's (Masi Oka) resolve to 'save the world' strengthens in the face of a grim reality."
