Welcome to Captain's Log -- your (semi) daily round-up of sci-fi randomness from around the web. Here's what's happening today:

The Museum of Modern Art in New York City will be holding a Tim Burton exhibition from November 22, 2009 through April 26, 2010 that will feature a gallery exhibition and a film series. The MoMA website says they will feature "artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects."[MoMA]

More for artsy New Yorkers: From July 10th through July 16th, Film Forum will be screening a new 35mm print of Ridley Scott's Alien. Showtimes daily are 2:00, 4:30, 7:00 & 9:30. If you're anywhere near New York and you're a fan of Alien (who isn't?), then I'd take this opportunity to see the film on the big screen. Tickets will be available beginning July 3rd. [Film Forum]

Jay Baruchel told MTV that Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse will go before cameras within the next year and a half. Originally, Baruchel and Seth Rogen shot a trailer for the film that Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg (Superbad) wrote together with the hopes that someone would fund it, make it and put them in it. Well Mandate Pictures secured the rights, and they've got the all clear, but because Rogen and Goldberg are so busy with The Green Hornet, it's being shoved to the back-burner. I'm dying to see this flick; their very NSFW trailer can be seen over on YouTube. [MTV]
