INTRODUCTION In the past we have tried to note distinctive trends in recent film criticism, some reflected in the journals that come and go, some in the special issue topics of various journals, and others in the sheer numbers of articles that cluster in what we might term currently "fashionable" categories. For 2008 there are a number of such noteworthy developments. One trend that deserves special attention is the interest in adaptation studies, prompting the appearance of Adaptation, sponsored by Oxford University Press, and the Journal of Adaptation in Film, published by Intellect Books. Both attest to the increased focus on adaptation theory, an approach that not only updates the sort of literature-to-film discussions that dominated much early film study, but that promises to provide valuable insights for a variety of cross-media and cross-screen studies. In this same vein, we should note the appearance of the new British journal Science Fiction Film and Television. Part of a larger initiative in science fiction studies emerging from Liverpool University Press, the journal points up an increased interest in linking television and film as kindred "screen studies," an effort also reflected in several recent anthology publications. Also, this edition of the Annual Bibliography includes for the first time the relatively new Studies in Hispanic Cinema. It is one of a group of film journals published by Intellect, offering articles covering the world-wide scope of Spanish and Spanish-influenced cinemas, all written in English.
