Watch: Say Goodbye To 'Boardwalk Empire' With 30-Minute Doc 'The Final Shot' With Martin Scorsese, Steve Buscemi, More

21 October 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Next Sunday, HBO will lower the curtain on "Boardwalk Empire." After five seasons of bootlegging, prostitution, assassination, and power moves from some of the underworld's seediest characters in the Atlantic City of the 1920 and 1930s, the lights will be shut off. So to get you prepared, HBO has unveiled a must watch thirty-minute documentary. The appropriately titled "The Final Shot" brings together executive producer Martin Scorsese, writer Terence Winter, and key cast members (Steve Buscemi, Gretchen Mol, Kelly Macdonald, Michael K. Williams, Stephen Graham and Michael Stuhlbarg) to share their recollections on the genesis of the show, shooting the series, and much more. It's insight from the on-the-ground players who have lived with the show for the past half-decade, and it's fascinating stuff for those who have been following the adventures of Nucky Thompson and co. The series finale of "Boardwalk Empire" airs on October 26th. Watch below. »

Review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'Cuanto'

28 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as my wheat farm goes belly up... "Partners in crime." -Nucky "Cuanto" brings us to the midway point of this shortened final season, and it's easily the liveliest of the four we've gotten so far. The hour deals a lot with partnerships being formed, or rekindled — or, more often than not, with failed reunion attempts — and as such not only deals a lot with the series' history (Van Alden's arrest of Luciano and Jimmy in season 1, Nucky and Margaret's first meeting), but gives us several terrific character combinations in both Atlantic City and Chicago, along with the best of the young Nucky flashbacks to date. As I noted last week, the sum of the Nucky/Margaret pairing has always been greater than the sum of its two parts, and we got a long, potent and entertaining reminder of that here. »

Boardwalk Empire: Season Five Ratings

23 September 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

HBO has decided that the fifth season will be the end of Boardwalk Empire. Will this be the show's most popular season yet? Will the cable channel regret ending the show or is the time right?

In the final season of Boardwalk Empire, the end of Prohibition is near and Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) looks to legitimize himself through alliances with liquor producers. Rivals Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza) and Meyer Lansky seek to consolidate their power and eliminate all competition -- by any means necessary. The rest of the cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Stephen Graham, Michael Kenneth Williams, Gretchen Mol, Paul Sparks, Jeffrey Wright, Anatol Yusef, Patricia Arquette, and Ben Rosenfield.

This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

For reference: The fourth season of Boardwalk Empire averaged a »

More "Trainspotting" In The Works

14 September 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, a sequel to "Trainspotting" is on track for development, with a new screenplay by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge

Boyle intends to reunite the first film's original cast of Ewan McGregor, Ewan Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John can produce a decent enough script. I don’t think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. 

"I think they’ll want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to »

Kelly Macdonald interview: Glasgow girl made good

7 September 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Kelly Macdonald would like to get something off her chest. The Scottish actress cannot bear reality television. “The people on programmes like Made in Chelsea just want to be celebrities. It’s so depressing,” she says. “No proper actor has that as a goal. I’m striving for longevity in my career. I won’t be on I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!. They’d say, ‘Get out of here – you’re not a celebrity!’” »

Which 'Boardwalk Empire' characters will survive the final season?

5 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When the new, final season of Boardwalk Empire starts Sunday, the Roaring Twenties will be over. The Depression will will have set in, and the end of Prohibition will be just a couple of years away. That, however, doesn’t mean that the aftermath of the series’ fourth season won’t linger, even as the show settles into 1931.

In its past four seasons, Boardwalk Empire has proved that it is interested in the entirety of the sprawling gangster culture of the 1920s, not just Nucky Thompson’s bootlegging business. By moving the action to 1931, the show will most certainly contend with the changing crime landscape. »

So, Just How Gangster Is the Cast of Boardwalk Empire?

5 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It doesn’t get more (old-timey) gangster than Boardwalk Empire’s bootlegging, gun-slinging, punch-throwing brawls. So, at Wednesday night’s season premiere and after-party at Cipriani 42nd Street, we asked the cast and other partygoers about the most gangster things they’ve ever done in real life. Michael K. Williams (Chalky White) The most gangster thing I’ve ever done was walk up to Eve the rapper and ask her out. I said, "What’s up? Will you go out with me?" She said no. But I thought that was pretty gangster. Anyway, she’s married now, so that ship has sailed. Kelly Macdonald (Margaret Thompson)Having babies. That’s pretty gangster. You can’t get tougher than that. Vincent Piazza (Lucky Luciano)Ooooh. I don’t know, probably playing Lucky Luciano — that’s the most gangster thing I’ve ever done. Pulling fake guns on people and threatening them »

'Boardwalk Empire': Steve Buscemi, Terence Winter Share How They Ended the Final Season

4 September 2014 12:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On Boardwalk Empire's final day of production, Steve Buscemi broke one of his own cardinal rules. Shooting at their Steiner Studios stage in Brooklyn, the actor stood with his back turned to his onscreen counterpart, Kelly Macdonald, waiting patiently for Margaret Thompson to say the line that cues the nebulous Nucky to turn to her, and the camera, for the very last time. "Usually, I get very distracted by people in my eye-line," he told The Hollywood Reporter at the show's season-five premiere on Wednesday. "But for the very last take, I requested the whole crew to

5 Peter Capaldi films you need to see ahead of his Doctor Who debut

21 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor on August 23.

When Peter Capaldi steps out of the Tardis this weekend for his Doctor Who debut, it'll be the first time many will see the wiry Scottish actor in action. Playing The Doctor will raise Capaldi's profile into the stratosphere, but he's been a supporting staple on the small and big screen since the early '80s.

Digital Spy casts its eyes over five film highlights from the 12th Doctor.

Local Hero (1983)

Capaldi's second acting job was in Bill Forsyth's brilliantly moving Local Hero, a comedy-drama about an American oil company worker who's dispatched to Scotland with a view to buying up land surrounding a small community. His first point of contact is Capaldi's Danny Oldsen, a fresh-faced bumbler who, »

Some Thoughts on 'The Knick', Premieres Tonight

8 August 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first episode of Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick" premieres tonight, August 8, at 10 p.m. Et/Pt and just a couple nights ago I watched the first two episodes of the show, which stars Clive Owen as Dr. John W. Thackery, working at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital in the year 1900. It's early days in anesthetics and the premiere episode's opening scene is a brutal one, offering an introduction into the blood bath the show will surely be. Having only watched the first two episodes (they sent me the first seven) I can't say I'm wholly in the bag for the show just yet as it is yet another television series that seems determined to focus solely on the bleak nature of the situation at hand and absolutely nothing that would seem to offer any sense of relief from the despair. Dead babies, cocaine use, racial issues, deviant ambulance drivers, electrical issues, »

Watch: Jesus Was Wrong In New Teaser Trailer For Final Season Of 'Boardwalk Empire'

21 July 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Boardwalk Empire" will be taking its final journey along the coast of New Jersey this fall, and it's going to bring some big changes with it. The last season of the period drama will apparently jump the timeline forward to the early '30s, just as prohibition is about to end. They're also going to have a lot less time to wrap up their final season. Instead of the regular twelve episodes, HBO is only giving them a shortened eight ep season. But it looks as if it'll be an intense one. HBO has dropped a brand new teaser for the final season, and from Chalky White intoning that "Jesus was wrong" about forgiveness to the closing tagline announcing "No One Goes Quietly," big things are on horizon. The faces you'll want to see are here with Steve Buscemi, Michael K. Williams, Michael Shannon, Kelly Macdonald and more all glimpsed, »
