19 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen RiverWinter’s Bone, Blue ValentineMartha Marcy May MarleneBeasts of the Southern WildFruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet.

How the Best Episode of 'The Newsroom' Reveals the Series' Fatal Flaws

18 November 2014 2:18 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Despite twenty episodes of rising ire, "The Newsroom" finally won me over. Sunday's "Run," moving briskly from quarreling lovers and spoiled siblings to First Amendment rights and journalistic ethics, is simply terrific, an emblem of what Sorkin's behind-the-scenes drama might have been all along. Alas, "Run" is the exception, not the rule -- next week's "Main Justice" is a return to Earth -- but the episode's distance from broadcast studios and live stand-ups may suggest the fatal flaw in the series' narrative design. In "The Newsroom," balancing the actual past with imaginative fiction, Sorkin lost sight of the fact that "reality" television succeeds when it refuses to stay on script.  Now in its third and final season, "The Newsroom" still can't help but dance an occasional jig after new media failures: as Atlantis Cable News executive producer MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) says in response to the »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

17 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini’s Ten Thousand Saints

14 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Who can forget 2003 when filmmaker-duo Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini landed at Sundance with a highly inventive biopic, a seminal film really in the indie film cannon.  Featuring the debatably unlikeable Clevelander Harvey Pekar,  American Splendor moved put the pair on a pedestal, and while they’ve been back to Sundance for The Extra Man (’10), they’ve pretty much stuck to commercial indie items in The Nanny Diaries (07), Cinema Verite – HBO ’11, and Girl Most Likely (aka Imogene) ’12. Starring Asa Butterfield, Ethan Hawke, Hailee Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch, Emily Mortimer and Julianne Nicholson, production began way back at the end of January on Ten Thousand Saints, which comes with a built-in fanbase due to the novel on which it is based on. Should be a high value sales item if included.

The Newsroom: Season Three Ratings

12 November 2014 7:23 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though HBO would likely like a fourth season of The Newsroom, the series is ending with a shortened third season (interviews indicate that Aaron Sorkin made the decision to make this the final season). Will it go out with great ratings or will it fizzle? We shall see.

The Newsroom follows the behind-the-scenes world at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (Acn) channel. The cast includes Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn, and Sam Waterston.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

10 Things You Should Know Before the 'Newsroom' Season 3 Premiere

8 November 2014 3:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Get ready, everyone. "The Newsroom" returns to HBO this Sunday at 9 p.m. And in order to get you prepared for this very exciting TV event, we've rounded up the top ten things you need to know about the beloved drama, including the highlights from last season. So before you tune in, read up here.

10. This Is the Final Season

Sorry, fans. Despite Jeff Daniels getting a Best Actor nod at the Emmys this year, HBO has decided to end the series in its third year. We're still hoping for a spinoff involving Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn) called "Economics For Dummies" or "I Make Nerds Look Good" or something. Anything would hook us as viewers as long as there were frequent cameos from Will and the team.

9. The News Coverage Last Season Was Excellent

From drone strikes to the Trayvon Martin Story, their coverage just got better and better with each episode. »

Review: 'The Newsroom' returns for third and final season

7 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Early in the third and final season of "The Newsroom" (Sunday at 9 p.m., HBO), TV news producer Maggie (Alison Pill) finds herself explaining to a stranger how her job works... and explaining... and explaining... and explaining some more. "You're giving a monologue," he tells her. "Everyone does where I work," Maggie admits. It's a very meta exchange in a show that's become increasingly self-aware the longer it's been on — and the more it's become clear that "The Newsroom" wouldn't be Aaron Sorkin's triumphant return to television, but a divisive career footnote. Several times in the new season (I've seen three of the final six episodes), Jeff Daniels' anchorman Will McAvoy begins delivering what he and we assume will be a trademark inspiring Sorkin monologue, only to lose the thread partway through and wonder aloud what he thought the point of it was. Sorkin, whose screenwriting career is thriving at the moment, »

‘The Newsroom’ Premiere: Olivia Munn Says ‘Season 3 Is Our Best Season Yet’

5 November 2014 12:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Newsroom” team was anything but melancholy at the show’s Tuesday night premiere, when they gathered at the Directors Guild of America Theater to celebrate their three season run. Long done filming the final episodes, the cast greeted each other with smiles and cheers on the carpet before heading into the theater to enjoy the season 3 opener – what star Sam Waterston described as “nostalgia time.”

“The whole thing has been a great pleasure,” said Waterston, adding that he will miss playing news division head Charlie Skinner, a “great present of a character, and all of these people who are wonderful to work with.”

“It feels great, honestly,” agreed executive producer Alan Poul of ending the show. Though he admitted that there’s “a huge amount of sadness,” looking to a future that doesn’t include going to work with the “Newsroom” cast and crew, he shared his excitement in »

TV Review: ‘The Newsroom,’ The Final Season

5 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Newsroom” didn’t really cry out for a third and final season — even a truncated six-episode one — but Aaron Sorkin’s creation remains as fascinating as it is frustrating, affording the writer extraordinaire a platform to vent about media excesses in a manner that’s off-putting and sanctimonious enough to dilute its many legitimate beefs and criticisms. It’s a shame, since Sorkin has always presented the news business with inordinate insight and smarts, but his clear disappointment in modern journalism’s failings has to be reciprocated toward an entertainment whose flawed structural conceit and too-cute office politics consistently undermine its authority.

Although “The Newsroom’s” easily riled anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and his principled producer Mackenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) finally re-declared their love for each other at the end of the previous season, wedding plans have merely given them something new about which to squabble. Besides, there »

Review: The Newsroom The Complete Second Season

3 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

We’re now in the first sweeps period of the current television season and its fair to say that while several new series are entertaining, few are measuring up to our increased expectations. As a result, it’s refreshing to see that in one week, one of the smartest shows is returning albeit for a truncated final season.

Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom debuted on HBO in June 2012 and was immediately declared better than Studio 60 but still no West Wing. It has remained, though, a riveting series that reminds us that serious journalism remains an elusive ideal on television. The series is set in the immediate past, using real world events so the audience can focus on how the noble, flawed characters react and cover the stories.

The second season, out tomorrow (Election Day appropriately enough) in a three-disc box set from HBO Home Entertainment, has a major arc »

Season Three Trailer For HBO’s The Newsroom Embraces More Real-Life Tragedy

3 October 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The end is in sight for HBO’s The Newsroom. The show’s third and final season is nearly upon us, after which we’ll bid goodbye to the Atlantic Cable News crew.

The Aaron Sorkin-scripted drama looks set to continue on its mission of melding real-life events with the show’s idealistic crew of reporters, producers and newscasters. In its first two seasons, the series received applause for tackling the media’s angle on global events such as the Occupy Wall Street movement. It’s of course Jeff Daniels’ leading man, anchor Will McAvoy, who’s largely responsible for the show’s success and is at centre stage barking to his lackeys once more in the trailer for season three.

Approaching another devastating tragedy, the Boston Marathon Bombings, with great care are the show’s core trio. Back for another run are Emily Mortimer as producer MacKenzie McHale »

It's a year and a half ago again on The Newsroom.  In the full trailer for the HBO drama, anchor Will McAvoy, the Emmy-winning Jeff Daniels, is still yelling at the whole office. Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) is talking vaguely about social media solving things. MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) and Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston) are building back trust in the scandal-damaged Acn news team, which fell for a fake story last season.  Read more Aaron Sorkin's 'Newsroom' Renewed for Third and Final Season This time around, part of the action takes place in April 2013, as evidenced

The Newsroom Season 3 Trailer and Poster: Final Episodes of Aaron Sorkin’s Drama Tackle the Boston Bombing

3 October 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

HBO has released the first full-length The Newsroom Season 3 trailer for the final six episodes of Aaron Sorkin’s drama series.  The show returns for a shortened final season due to Sorkin’s schedule, but as someone who’s stuck through the series for better or worse, I’m genuinely looking forward to seeing how Sorkin wraps things up.  I thought the second season was a marked improvement that addressed some of the show’s major issues (using a new news story as the “plot of the week”, for one), and I’m curious to see if there’s been any further tweaking for Season 3.  This new trailer shows that Jeff Daniels’ character continues his habit of yelling at people, and confirms that this season will address the 2013 Boston bombing. Hit the jump to check out the Newsroom Season 3 trailer, the fitting new poster, and an interesting featurette.  The show also stars Emily Mortimer, »

How Is It Possible That Olivia Munn Still Looks Sexy With A Mustache?

2 October 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Olivia Munn is known for many things in show business. She's dressed as Wonder Woman, served alongside Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer at a fictitious cable news network, and she's roasted Brett Ratner for the colossal douchebag he truly is. And somehow, when almost all of her fellow Mortdecai cast members look downright ridiculous wearing almost exactly the same moustache, she not only makes it work, but she looks really damned good while doing so. Collider showed off the full cast sporting whiskers for the latest Johnny Depp vehicle that has him doing just that. While Depp has definitely worn some weird looks in the past (and gotten away with it) he looks more like a person you shouldn't be taking candy from, much less marrying or seducing. Though investigating is perfectly fine, as he might have priors. As for Gwyneth Paltrow, she almost looks like a confused poodle, and »

Aaron Sorkin: I didn't know how 'The Newsroom' was going to end

17 September 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The lights are about to dim on the HBO’s The Newsroom. The drama, created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) and focusing on fictional cable news channel Acn, begins its final season on Nov. 9, and will wrap up its story in a tight six episodes. “It was because of my schedule,” Sorkin says of the shortened season. “But, as it turned out, six was the right number. I don’t know what we would have done with a seventh episode.”

So what’s in these final hours? EW talked to Sorkin about weddings, power plays, and Twitter scandals.
