'The Simpsons': See summer's shortest trailer for the 3-D short film hitting theaters -- FIRST LOOK

It’s been five years since The Simpsons invaded movie theaters with the aptly titled The Simpsons Movie. Itching and scratching to see the Springfield clan return to the big screen? It’s happening shortly, in all senses of the word. Served as an animated appetizer to 20th Century Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift (opening July 13), The Longest Daycare is a four-and-a-half-minute 3-D short featuring a lot of Maggie Simpson and no dialogue.

The plot: Baby Maggie makes a return visit to the Ayn Rand School for Tots, which doesn’t start promisingly, as a machine scans her and determines that her future is “nothing special.”

For a preview of the action, watch the following trailer, which confirms the presence of a butterfly, lice detector, at least one other Simpsons family member, and Maggie’s arch rival, the unibrowed Baby Gerald. Granted, the tease is only about five seconds, but, hey, the movie’s not even five minutes.

'Liz & Dick' costumer on Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor: 'There was an audible gasp in the room'

If the first official image of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor for Lifetime’s original movie Liz & Dick looked familiar, perhaps you grew up reading Life magazine. The promotional shot is a re-staging of an unused image from the April 19, 1963 issue, which reported the production of Cleopatra. “That was an easy one to reproduce, and we just went out and found them both period mock turtlenecks. We took the picture and there was an audible gasp in the room because it was so right on,” says the film’s costumer Salvadore Perez, who spent three weeks researching photos of the couple. “They were the most photographed couple in the world, so doing research was actually quite easy. You can Google almost any event in their lives, and there was a photo of it.” READ FULL STORY

Last night, he took a moment on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards to discuss his decision to move on from the comedy institution. READ FULL STORY

Katee Sackhoff on 'Longmire' and getting rid of her 'Chronicles of Riddick' muscle for the new show

Katee Sackhoff, best known as hotshot pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in Battlestar Galactica, has traded the final frontier for the plains and mountains of rural Wyoming. In A&E’s new TV series Longmire, Sackhoff delves into the Western genre as deputy Victoria “Vic” Moretti.

Adapted from a book series by Craig Johnson, Longmire centers on Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor), sheriff in the fictional Absaroka County. Vic is the new girl in town, adjusting to a transition from her detective job in Philadelphia.

We caught up with Sackhoff a couple days before Sunday’s premiere of Longmire (at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT) to chat about filming in New Mexico, what fans can expect from her turn in the upcoming Chronicles of Riddick sequel, and the similarities between her new modern Western and the sci-fi show that garnered her a devoted fanbase.  READ FULL STORY

'The Simpsons': Exclusive details on the next big-screen adventure (it's a 3-D short)!

Simpsons fans who have been awaiting the show’s return to the big screen, you may now let out a short, silent “Woo Hoo!”: A four-and-a-half-minute dialogue-free film, titled The Longest Daycare, will be shown before Ice Age: Continental Drift when that movie hits theaters on July 13. (There’s a little history between these two Fox franchises: The trailer for 2007′s The Simpsons Movie was stealthily placed before Ice Age: The Meltdown.)

Teased at the end of the season 23 finale on Sunday, the short marks The Simpsons’ first 3-D adventure (not counting the exploits of “3-D Homer” in Treehouse of Horror VI).  “[Executive producer] Jim Brooks thought we should do an animated short — a la the ones Pixar does before their features, a la the cartoons you used to see in the theater years ago — as a fun thing to give our fans,” executive producer Al Jean tells EW. “We just wanted to do this as a way of saying, ‘We appreciate how much people have stayed with the show and watched it for 25 years.”

'Lord of the Rings' star Sean Astin shows off his hobbit gear for Syfy's 'Hollywood Treasure' -- VIDEO

For the second season premiere of Syfy’s showbiz memorabilia show Hollywood Treasure (airing May 22 at 10 p.m. ET), Sean Astin worked with appraiser and show host Joe Maddalena to refurbish his helmet from his 1993 sports film classic Rudy. When Astin was approached about the show, which includes auctions of major pop-culture artifacts, the actor tells EW that he was “a little wary — I didn’t want to sell anything.” But, he says, then he learned the show isn’t just about money. “It’s also about appreciating the nature of the memorabilia, where it comes from and why it’s so meaningful to people,” he says. Which lead Astin to bring in some of the Lord of the Rings gear given to him by director Peter Jackson when the Oscar-winning trilogy concluded filming, and show them off to Maddalena.

George H.W. Bush to be featured in HBO documentary

As politicians go, George H.W. Bush is a fairly private person. Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, or even his son George W. Bush, the United States’ 41st president has never written an autobiography or memoir — though Bush did publish a volume filled with personal letters, diary entries, and memos in 2000.

But come June, we’ll get an inside look at Bush’s story. Reuters writes that the former president is the subject of an upcoming HBO documentary, aptly named 41. In the doc, Bush reflects on his life thus far, including his experiences as an aviator in World War II, his time as the director of the CIA, and his presidency, which lasted from 1989 to 1993. The movie was filmed over the course of 17 months at both Bush’s presidential library in Texas and his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The Jeffrey Roth-directed doc will premiere June 14 — two days after Bush turns 88 years old. READ FULL STORY
