Alcatraz: Executive producers J.J.

Person of Interest: Jim Caviezel (The Thin Red Line), Michael Emerson (Lost) and Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow) team up in this crime action-drama from The Dark Knight's Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (Super 8, Fringe). Set in New York City, with all of its multifaceted elements of justice (cops, criminals, corruption), this procedural centers on an ex-CIA agent, presumed dead, who partners with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes. The series will air Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS this fall.

Smallville: Warner Bros. Television's hit series Smallville recently concluded its 10th and final season on The CW, but fans can soon have all 218 episodes - plus five hours of newly added special features, including an all-new 90-minute retrospective - in their collection as Warner Home Video releases Smallville: The Complete Series on DVD this fall.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy can be viewed on Machinima.com and will be available for download via iTunes, Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network starting July 18.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North: This is an intense, Action RPG video game for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC with an original story based on the renowned works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
