Docurama wants to be your home for free, on-demand documentaries -- EXCLUSIVE

Gasland.jpg

Documentaries serve a crucial role in our culture — not only because they can challenge the way we look at the world, but also because, occasionally, they might actually prod us off our collective asses to do something. An Inconvenient Truth, Bowling for Columbine, Paradise Lost: these films motivated some moviegoers to get involved in important issues in ways they never thought they would. Other documentaries aren’t trying to change the world necessarily, but  still discover and dissect fascinating people and events in ways that fiction can’t or won’t. Offer me Michael Mann’s Ali and Leon Gast’s When We Were Kings, for example, and I’ll choose the real Ali every time. Ali, boom bye yae!

Docurama, a free on-demand streaming channel, debuts today, and it’s hoping to eventually become the home for serious documentary viewing. At launch, the site already features movies from award-winning filmmakers such as Alex Gibney, Fred Wiseman, and Joe Berlinger, and the service is promising to have more than 1,000 titles available by mid-summer.

'This Is Where I Leave You': FIRST LOOK at Tina Fey, Jason Bateman's emotional family funeral comedy

Remember that line from The Godfather: “Never tell anybody outside the family what you’re thinking”? In This Is Where I Leave You, it’s probably best not to tell the family, either. The bittersweet comedy about troubled siblings who reunite for their father’s funeral is like a group hug crossed with a battle royal.

“We need a new term for the tone. It’s not a dark comedy—because it’s not that dark. But it’s an ­emotional ­comedy,” says Tina Fey, who plays the pushy sister to three equally neurotic and combative brothers: Corey Stoll, Jason Bateman, and Adam Driver. Jane Fonda costars as their prying psychologist mother, who will either unite her estranged family or destroy it trying. READ FULL STORY

In the black comedy Cheap Thrills, a rich couple played by David Koechner and Sara Paxton challenge a far more down-at-heel pair of acquaintances (Ethan Embry and Pat Healy) to perform ever more outlandish tasks for increasing sums of money. Directed by horror movie scripter-turned-first-time filmmaker E.L. Katz, the result was released earlier this year and is one of the more confident debuts this writer has seen in quite some time.

Watch a scene from Alejandro Jodorowsky's first film in 23 years -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Thanks to the excellent documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, director Alejandro Jodorowsky has become well known over the past year for a film he did not make (that would be his abortive attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune). Now it’s time to turn our attention to a movie he has actually succeeded in bringing to the screen.

Megan Hilty talks singing, 'Legends of Oz,' and 'Smash' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Megan Hilty may currently portray the China Doll Princess, but this isn’t her first time ruling Oz.

After playing Glinda in Broadway’s Wicked for years — and after stints on Smash and Sean Saves the World — Hilty returns to the wonderful world of Oz with her role in the animated The Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return. Joining an all-star cast, including Lea Michele as Dorothy, as well as Martin Short, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, and Jim Belushi, this time around, Dorothy runs into new friends and foes, including one very bossy and demanding princess.

Hilty is no stranger to musicals (you can get a first listen to the Legends of Oz songs here), and when she sat down with EW last week, we asked her about the recent trend of musicals coming to television — no doubt Smash helped things along. “I just heard [about Grease]! That’s so exciting,” the onetime Ivy Lynn said, and confirmed she would love to be involved. “Not sure who exactly I would play, but I think it would just be so much fun.” Below, check out what Hilty had to say about onscreen beau Hugh Dancy and her favorite number from dearly departed Smash — as well as an exclusive clip from Legends of Oz.

Mia Wasikowska ignores Jesse Eisenberg in 'The Double' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

The-Double.jpg

Jesse Eisenberg’s Simon James has worked at the same company for seven years. You’d think that might give him some clout with the security people he sees nearly every day when his pass stops functioning. But, in director Richard Ayoade’s The Double, he is not only completely unrecognizable to them — he’s also someone to be suspicious of.

His world just keeps getting stranger as he actively has to sneak into a mandatory work party, where his crush, played with dreamy feistiness by Eisenberg’s real-life girlfriend Mia Wasikowska, doesn’t even notice him.

Check out the clip of the party after the jump, and all of its kitschy, surreal, Lynchian oddness. Just keep in mind that he hasn’t even met his doppelganger yet.

In this exclusive featurette, writer Misan Sagay, director Amma Asante, and star Gugu Mbatha-Raw explain how they were inspired by the painting and how the work of art has influenced the film’s creative message and story and place in history.
