Emmy nominations are out for last season, but it’s already time for a new one. Television continues to rival, and sometimes surpass, the quality and success of film industry releases, with more networks than we ever thought possible 20 years ago. And, with the growing number of cable networks, we witness the capability of catering to more adult-oriented content. This fall, we will continue to see television grow, for better and for worse. Which new shows will achieve Fresh, or even Certified Fresh, status? Which will quickly go Rotten? And which of your favorite returning shows made the cut this year? Here’s the list as we know it, and we’ll continue to update it as premiere dates continue to be broadcast.

Keep track of all the new fall shows here!

Chinese director Chen Kaige‘s high-profile martial arts film, "The Promise," has received its final "license" to compete for Best Foreign Film in next year’s Academy Awards. And you can see the (rather awesome) trailer for the film right here.

This mega budget pan-Asian production will be released across the world in December.

The film combines a fantasy setting with a love story and epic battle sequences. The cast includes Japan’s Hiroyuki Sanada, Korea’s Jang Dong-Kun and Hong Kong stars Cecilia Cheung and Nicholas Tse.

No definite word on when the film will be released in North America, but we’ll let you know when we hear something!
