West Memphis Three doc 'Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory' to debut on HBO -- EXCLUSIVE TRAILER

The release of the famed West Memphis Three earlier this year captivated even those who just tangentially knew about the case, i.e. the three then-teenagers who were convicted in 1994 — wrongly, in the view of many — of murdering three boys in West Memphis, Ark. One of the central engines of their release was the Paradise Lost documentaries by directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, who had just finished their third film on the case, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, two days before Jason Baldwin, Jessie Misskelley Jr., and Damien Echols stepped out of a Jonesboro, Ark., courthouse as free men.

After premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, the filmmakers amended their film with footage from the remarkable conclusion to this nearly two-decade long ordeal, which then played at the New York Film Festival. The documentary will have its exclusive public debut on HBO on Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Check out the exclusive trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Roger Ebert's 'At the Movies' show to go on hiatus

ebert-presents-at-the-movies

The film criticism show Ebert Presents: At the Movies will go on hiatus at the end of December, according to a blog post published Wednesday by Roger Ebert. The public TV program was produced and nearly entirely financed by the Chicago Sun-Times film critic and his wife, Chaz Ebert, and was intended to be a continuation of the various review shows hosted by Ebert and the late Gene Siskel, such as Sneak Previews, At the Movies, and Siskel & Ebert. But the Eberts said they can no longer afford to foot the bill and are now searching for new sponsors.

“We’ve spoken to the top executives of several channels and film distributors, charitable foundations, web delivery services, potential corporate sponsors, and crowd-funding sources,” said Ebert in his post. “We are still talking with them, but the time crunch has intervened. It is a complicated process, and so we are going on hiatus while we sort it out.”

Ebert Presents: At the Movies is hosted by critics Christy Lemire of the Associated Press and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of Mubi.com. By the end of the year, the show will have aired 50 episodes.

Stanley Kubrick's 'Fear and Desire' premieres on TCM

Fear and Desire, the 1953 debut film of a young Look magazine photographer named Stanley Kubrick, will have its world television premiere on Turner Classics Movies on Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. Starring Frank Silvera, Paul Mazursky, and Kenneth Harp, Fear and Desire is an existential anti-war drama about a lost platoon whose journey to safety is complicated by an encounter with a mysterious woman.

Kubrick, who shot the film quickly with a crew of about 15 people, was never especially proud of his maiden effort, calling it a “a bumbling amateur film exercise.” It quickly disappeared from theaters despite some critical accolades, and when Kubrick became famous for films like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and A Clockwork Orange (1971), he gathered up prints of the film in order to prevent future viewings. Fear and Desire received its first retrospective screening at the 1993 Telluride Film Festival and has only been presented a few times since, according to TCM.

The special showing is part of TCM’s 24-hour marathon honoring the preservation efforts of the Motion Picture Department at George Eastman House. TCM host Robert Osborne will present 15 cinematic rarities, including a silent version of Huckleberry Finn (1920), the first film adaptation of Mark Twain’s classic.

The return of 'Arrested Development': Tony Hale talks Lucille 2 and hopes for an iPad hand -- EXCLUSIVE

Since news broke last week that Netflix officially picked up Arrested Development for a 2013 run, fans have been taking a victory lap around the Internet that the five-year will-they-or-won’t-they revival roller coaster appears to be finished once and for all. EW landed an exclusive chat with Buster Bluth himself, a.k.a. Tony Hale. Of the long wait for Arrested‘s return, Hale laughed, “In this situation, Buster would have been in the hospital medicated.” What else did Hale have to say about everyone’s favorite seal-phobic, over-educated MotherBoy? Will Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) return? And what was Hale’s favorite Buster moment so far? Keep reading… READ FULL STORY

Official: Ricky Gervais back as Golden Globes host

Brace yourself, Hollywood: Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes for the third time.

After months of will-he-or-won’t-he rumors, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and NBC have struck a deal with the caustic comedian to host the show on Jan. 15. Last year, Gervais mocked the HFPA and once again dealt low-blow punches to Hollywood celebrities. But Gervais also brings a certain high-wire-act tension to the telecast which has seemingly benefited the show’s ratings — Globes viewership rose to roughly 17 million viewers when Gervais first took the gig in 2010 and held mostly steady this year. And NBC, which has been rocked by lower primetime ratings this fall, can sure use the stability.

Gervais tweeted: “Just told [Oscar host] Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true).” READ FULL STORY

Roger Ebert: 'At the Movies' in danger of cancellation

Legendary film critic Roger Ebert says his revamped version of At the Movies is in danger of going off the air. The syndicated program Ebert Presents At The Movies needs more investor funding to survive, the critic writes.

“Unless we find an angel, our television program will go off the air at the end of its current season,” Ebert wrote this weekend, noting the ratings for the show have been strong. “There. I’ve said it. Usually in television, people use evasive language. Not me. We’ll be gone. I want to be honest about why this is. We can’t afford to finance it any longer.”

Ebert co-hosted the original At the Movies for decades until he was stricken by thyroid cancer. The new review program is produced by Ebert and his wife Chaz Ebert and debuted in January. Christy Lemire of the Associated Press and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of the Chicago Reader co-host the show.

Michael Shannon talks last night's 'Boardwalk Empire,' and General Zod's 'cumbersome' costume

Last night’s episode of Boardwalk Empire marked a pivotal turning point for lawman Nelson Van Alden, who has spent the first half of this season trying to keep his baby mama Lucy a secret from his loving wife (to say nothing of his fellow Prohibition agents). We talked to actor Michael Shannon — currently in the midst of a busy year that includes the recent release of the lauded Take Shelter and production on 2013′s Superman reboot Man of Steel — about the big developments in last night’s episode. (As a bonus, he talked a little bit about taking over for Terence Stamp as General Zod, too!)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Van Alden clearly considers himself to be a righteous man. How did he justify his relationship to Lucy to himself? Was his plan to give this baby to his wife?
MICHAEL SHANNON: The idea was that he could somehow get away with claiming that this baby was left on a quote-unquote doorstep. He somehow managed to almost pull it off. If you step away and look at it, it is a ludicrous plan. READ FULL STORY

'Community' pays tribute to 'Animal House' for EW's Comedy Issue -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

We here at EW were looking for a way to salute some classic school-set comedies from the late 70s and 80s for our Comedy Issue, which hits stands today. We could have done it with conventional weapons, but that would have taken years and cost millions of lives. We had to all go out, as this situation absolutely required a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part. The good news? We knew just the guys to do it: The students at Greendale Community College! The nine stars of the clever and refer-ential NBC comedy Community recreated some famous imagery from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Porky’s, and The Breakfast Club (which you can see in the magazine), as well as Animal House – which you can check out below in this online exclusive: READ FULL STORY
