HBO has announced that the third and final season of The Newsroom will launch on Sunday, November 9th. There are just a half-dozen installments.
Here's the press release:
The third and final season of The Newsroom finds Will and Mac and the staff of "News Night" facing two explosive situations: the possibility of a hostile takeover of the network looming on the horizon, and leaked classified government documents that unleash a legal fire storm that threatens to topple more than one professional career.
Going beyond the headlines, the six-part season turns its attention inward, focusing »
Doll & Em will return for a second series.
The second series will continue the story of Mortimer hiring her best friend as her assistant, and will see the pair move from Los Angeles to New York, reports Radio Times.
"I'm so proud to have such an outstanding series on the channel. The extraordinarily smart, brilliantly funny way Dolly and Emily bring the universal theme of female friendship alive makes it the perfect series for Living."

Alessandro Nivola will next be seen on the big screen in J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo and Albert Brooks. Bradley Cooper, with whom he worked on David O Russell's American Hustle and Patricia Clarkson will come to Broadway to co-star with him in Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man directed by Scott Ellis.
When I showed up to have a conversation with Alessandro on his upcoming adventures - including Doll & Em with Emily Mortimer - Ethan Hawke and playwright Jonathan Marc Sherman were having breakfast with him. Robert Redford's commanding performance in and integrity surrounding Chandor's riveting All Is Lost and Warren Beatty's with Reds turned into »

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.

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, »

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 »
Marshall will become joint managing director of the company with Thykier, who will shutter his company PeaPie Films, and move his staff and slate across to the new entity.
Thykier, whose films have grossed over $325 million at the worldwide box-office, has two films in production: “Summer of ‘92,” directed by Kasper Barfoed, and “Adam Jones,” which he is executive producing for The Weinstein Company. Thykier is also in post-production on “Woman in Gold,” starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

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.

I won’t go on about how undervalued and original this series is and if you’re reading this, then you already know. After reporting that the third and final season had finished filming back in mid-July, it’s felt like a long time since we’ve seen anything new but today it’s finally here, and it’s set for a 9th November date on HBO in the USA.
This series has been abound with tremendous performances, top notch scripts and an even better ensemble cast and I’m positive that all involved are looking to go out on a high, check the ‘stolen moments‘ teaser trailer now on Thn:

A number of movies are being brought to the television in various forms (including Narc and The Truman Show), and Fargo is a recent example that these small screen adaptations do work.
It has been revealed today that the next to get the TV treatment is Shutter Island, the 2010 movie which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, and Mark Ruffalo.
HBO (the Us cable network behind show like Game of Thrones and True Detective) have picked up the series which is set to be called Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place.
Ashecliffe takes place before Shutter Island, and that’s all we know about the series as of right now!

Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel Shutter Island is based on, will write the pilot script, with Martin Scorsese set to direct the first episode. The series is tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the book and film are set, with the story to take place before the events of the movie. The show will focus on the hospital's past, and the sinister secrets of the facility's founders in the early 20th Century, who developed methods of treatment for the mentally ill.
The series was initially thought up by Paramount TV executive Amy Powell. She brought the idea to Martin Scorsese and Dennis Lehane, who loved the idea of expanding the story of his novel. Tom Bernardo is working as a co-writer with Dennis Lehane on the pilot. »
In 2012 HBO premiered a new television show following the day to day running of a typical Us news channel and it’s employees. Featuring an all star cast including Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn, it challenged the views on how the news is and should be covered in this day and age, spearheading the importance of ethical coverage rather than celebrating the incipient obsession with ratings. Written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and typical of his style, it often highlighted everything that was good and bad with today’s society. Like most shows that tackle topical subjects it came under a fair amount of criticism.
Earlier this year HBO revealed that the upcoming third season of The Newsroom would be its last and now they have released the first teaser trailer. Instead of featuring any actual footage from the final episodes, the teaser »

Today brings news of a slight release date bump for one project and finalized dates for two more. Writer-director Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, which stars an emaciated Jake Gyllenhaal as a crime journalist, has been moved from October 17th to October 31st this year. Additionally, Michael Dougherty’s Krampus will hit theaters on November 25th, 2015, and the Nic Mathieu-directed Spectral will land on August 12th, 2016.
Coming to us first is Nightcrawler, which is shaping up to be a must-see movie this fall. The shocking first trailer made quite an impression, and the tantalizing official synopsis below just raises our expectations:
An official selection of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy, Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L. »

Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have shifted around their release date schedule.
First up the action-thriller "Spectral" will now launch on August 12th 2016. Nic Mathieu's film deals with a group of special ops soldiers tasked with destroying supernatural forces before they take over New York City. James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer, Bruce Greenwood and Max Martini star.
Meanwhile, Michael Dougherty's "Krampus" is now scheduled for November 25th 2015. The story is based on an ancient Pagan demon who goes out searching for naughty children to punish during the Christmas holiday.
Open Road Films has all changed up its release schedule with the Jake Gyllenhaal-led "Nightcrawler" being delayed two weeks from October 17th to October 31st this year. That film deals with the dark underworld of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles.

Get out your calendars, folks, as Universal/Legendary have just set release dates for two of their upcoming terror tales. Look for the yuletide anthology Krampus on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, and Spectral on August 12, 2016.
“The dark ancient origins of our holidays have always fascinated me,” Dougherty said. “I’ve been drawing twisted Christmas cards for well over a decade so it only made sense to bring some of that morbid yuletide fun to the big screen, and Krampus was the perfect mythology to do that. Christmas has been invading Halloween for far too long. It’s time to return the favor.”

Those who are naughty are going to get something a lot worse than coal in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, while a Special Ops team engages supernatural forces in Spectral. This pagan demon and ghostly threat will officially see the big screen, as Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just announced the release dates for both films.
We reported in May that Legendary Pictures has signed Michael Dougherty to co-write and direct Krampus, a Christmas horror comedy co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields: “Based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Krampus is similar in style to Dougherty’s cult hit Trick R’ Treat.”
This is the second Krampus-based Christmas horror movie to begin development as of late, »

Spectral currently has the August 12, 2016 date all to itself, although it comes one week after one of the 9 DC Comics movies that were announced earlier this month, and the Untitled Smurfs Movie on August 5, 2016. Spectral stars James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer, Bruce Greenwood and Max Martini, following a group of special ops soldiers tasked with destroying supernatural forces before they take over New York City. Nic Mathieu is directing from a script by George Nolfi and John Gatins, based on an original treatment by Ian Fried.
Krampus, which was first announced back in May, will go up against Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, 20th Century Fox's The Martian and Warner Bros.' Midnight Special next November. The story is based on an ancient Pagan demon who goes out searching »
