Roman Polanski Evades Arrest in Poland as U.S. Renews Chase

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Roman Polanski has evaded a fresh bid by U.S. authorities to have him arrested with a view to extraditing him.

U.S. officials requested that the Polish government seize the director as he visited Poland to attend the opening of a Jewish museum in Warsaw. Polanski was questioned by prosecutors in Krakow today.

Roman Polanski said he would comply with all requests made by prosecutors in this case and provided his address,” Poland’s justice ministry spokesman Mateusz Martyniuk told Afp.

“Prosecutors therefore decided not to arrest him in connection with a possible U.S. extradition request.”

Martyniuk said Polanski’s extradition to the U.S. was still possible, but as the U.S. had yet to make an extradition request Polanski “is a free citizen and is free to travel.”

Polanski pleaded guilty to having sex with 13-year-old Samantha Geimer in the U.S. in 1977, but left the country in 1978 before sentencing. »

Visiting Hell: Inside a Christian Haunted House

34 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Charles D'Ambrosio's new collection, Loitering, out November 11, confirms what his devoted readers have known all along: He is among America's finest essayists. Slyly cumulative in their emotional power and inspiring in their moral insight, D'Ambrosio's pieces jump from personal history to cultural deep-digging. In honor of Halloween, we're running the book's "Hell House" essay, in which D'Ambrosio writes about his visit to a Christian haunted house in Texas. Hell House Hell House is a ramshackle arrangement of buildings meant to depict in a literal and somewhat medieval way the vast potential for ending up eternally damned. It’s a haunted house in a haunted world, and through it you wind, down corridors of billowing black Visqueen, through rooms luridly lit by strobes and TV screens, past stage sets peopled with rapists and murderers and terrorists until, briefly interred in a black coffin whose convenient and clever back door opens onto the afterlife, »

J.K. Rowling Wrote 6 New Harry Potter Stories

38 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just in time for Halloween, which is like Christmas for wizards (they celebrate Christmas, too, but that's more of a cultural thing), J.K. Rowling has put up six new stories on Pottermore, including a detailed character study of Ministry of Magic official Dolores Umbridge. In the essay, Rowling reveals that she based Umbridge's love of all things pink and whimsical on a former teacher she particularly disliked. "I have noticed more than once in life that a taste for the ineffably twee can go hand-in-hand with a distinctly uncharitable outlook on the world," she explains. "[Umbridge's] desire to control, to punish, and to inflict pain, all in the name of law and order, are, I think, every bit as reprehensible as Lord Voldemort’s unvarnished espousal of evil."Rowling also fills in a plot hole that has always bothered us: Why does Umbridge end up on Voldemort's side in Deathly Hallows? »

Parenthood Recap: Let’s Do the Time Warp

42 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Parenthood borrowed a page from Parks and Recreation this week — well, kind of  — by suddenly, unexpectedly flashing its narrative forward. Instead of skipping ahead a couple of years, though, Parenthood time-hopped three months into the future, only to find that, hey, guess what, everything’s pretty much the same as it was roughly 90 days prior.Ruby: Still a moody little pill with a vague resemblance to Avril Lavigne, a resemblance that’s most notable on days when she’s hung-over and last night’s eye makeup is smudged across her face. Max: Still crushing on Dylan with no clear indication that she genuinely reciprocates his feelings. Adam and Crosby: Still having troubles at the Luncheonette, although, after three months, those troubles seem much more dire than they did in last week’s episode. And certain members of the Braverman family: Still randomly Mia due to NBC’s season-six cast-salary-reduction measures. »

TV Review: Cartoon Network’s ‘Over The Garden Wall’

48 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Over the Garden Wall” aspires to, and in part achieves, true whimsy, which doesn’t make the outlook for this animated, not-so-grim fairy tale for adults any less cloudy. Patrick McHale’s creation has been expanded into a 10-part miniseries (each night runs a half-hour, consisting of two chapters), which Cartoon Network will air over consecutive nights. Yet while the notion of two brothers seeking a way home is simple enough, the resulting production might be a bit too mature for kids, and not edgy enough for young adults. Who that leaves is anybody’s guess, but credit the network for taking a leap of faith over this “Wall.”

Based on McHale’s film short, the series mixes various styles, juxtaposing extremely basic character design (the noses are dots and triangles) against beautiful, ornate backgrounds, filled with mood and atmosphere, and accompanied by original songs.

The story is equally rudimentary: Two brothers, »

Emily Kessler, a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor from Ukraine, plays music for herself. From inside her apartment on the Upper West Side, she practices her mandolin and sings folk songs as a means to bring herself joy and remember a time before the war, when she was with her family.  “We were singing,” she says of her childhood. “My mother, my father.

But on Monday night, Kessler is slated to make her debut at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, giving a solo performance to coincide with a fund-raising dinner held by the Blue Card, a nonprofit that offers aid to Holocaust survivors. The performance is part of »

Taylor Swift Is One of Miley Cyrus' Favorite Things for Halloween—With a Twist!

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cute, right?! Miley, 21, hasn't professed her love for Pegasus yet, but she's been all about the relaxed unicorn getups for some time now. Just last week, she was spotted making her way through the Sydney, Australia airport wearing an overused (and adorable) unicorn onesie from Kigurumi. She'd just looked up her tour and was looking a little sleepy, but not too tired to forget to bring a matching pink unicorn plush carry-on! Miley even introduced twerking to the mainstream last year wearing a different unicorn onesie. Safe to say, she's over twerking now (and onto the Nae Nae), but unlike their shared unicorn obsession, Miley and Taylor probably won't ever gravitate towards the same type of »

The Colbert Report Sets Last Show; We All Cry Forever

We get it. We're in denial, too. Yyou're aware The Colbert Report is ending soon, but knowing the date makes it that much more real and tragic (not unlike setting a wedding date).
