Starting today, a special teaser of Maul in his raging animated form will play before screenings of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace 3D in AMC, Cinemark, and Regal theater chains, among others that feature National CineMedia’s First Look advertisements.

Golden Globes backstage: All the highlights from George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Uggie the dog

If you want to feel like time is traveling more quickly than a Martin Scorsese acceptance speech, try sitting in the Golden Globes press room. Journalists are seated in a ballroom adjacent to the ceremony, where one winner after another steps in front of a microphone to answer questions regarding film, TV, politics, philanthropy, dogs, dresses, underwear (or lack thereof), protestors, the British royal family, cooking, babies, and Pilates. And then, before your brain is even able to come to terms with the fact that Steven Spielberg/Kate Winslet/Meryl Streep/George Clooney is standing right in front of you, he or she is whisked away. One minute later, it all repeats, becoming a sort of speed-dating session in which each person you meet is approximately 27 times more attractive than you are.

It’s a surreal blast, and by the time The Descendants had won Best Picture, I couldn’t believe that three hours had passed. Here are the highlights of what was said backstage: READ FULL STORY

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.
