Over the past two decades, the story of the West Memphis Three has become the definitive example of miscarriage of justice in the United States legal system. In fact, the wrongful conviction of Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr and Jason Baldwin for the murder of three young boys in 1994 has already been extensively chronicled in the 'Paradise Lost' trilogy of documentaries (the third of which premiered last year), which actually helped get their case overturned. However, 'West of Memphis,' a new documentary covering the entire case, is set to arrive in theaters this Christmas after an extensive festival run. Check out the poster and trailer below.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' the first film in Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit' trilogy, is hitting theaters in just  a month and a half now, and that means it's time for more promotional goodies to start popping out, including the official track list for 'The Hobbit' soundtrack. Back in the summer when Warner Bros. released the 'Dark Knight Rises' soundtrack list, it gave us some hints at what we could expect to see in the film. So, with the one for 'An Unexpected Journey' now available, what does it reveal about Bilbo and his band of merry dwarfs?

We're finding out a lot about 'The Hobbit' movie this week, thanks to the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter. For instance, did you know Ian McKellen almost turned down the role of Gandalf for the next three Middle Earth-based movies? While all that's interesting to learn, our favorite 'Hobbit' fact actually pertains to a seemingly unrelated actor -- funnyman Stephen Colbert.
THR missed this little tid bit: the 'Colbert Report' host is obsessed with Tolkien. So much so, in fact, that he got to visit the set of 'An Unexpected Journey' in New Zealand, where -- get this -- he may or may not have shot a cameo appearance for the movie trilogy!

Since the release of the second 'Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' trailer hit the airwaves during Tolkien Week, Peter Jackson and his crew at Warner Bros. have been light on the promotional material for the upcoming book-adapted flick. The director recently gave us a look at one of the new 'Hobbit' posters, which featured Bilbo holding his trusty "Sting" sword, but new images or sneaks at the film were scarce.
But now with the latest poster, some other characters from the highly anticipated December movie get their time in the spotlight.
