Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory is the latest in a series of HBO documentaries about the West Memphis Three, released last year after 18 years of wrongful imprisonment.

Revealing injustices perpetrated by the Arkansas penal system against the men, now in their 30s, has become a goal the filmmakers will stop at nothing to achieve.

This travesty chronicling the betrayal of the young murder victims - and the wrongly convicted - has become one of the most famous cases in modern law.

Known as the West Memphis 3, Damian Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jesse Misskelley were freed in August after 18 years in prison under an obscure statute.

In an odd, legal twist, the trio entered a plea of guilty in court and were subsequently set free, with a twist. They were never technically exonerated.

Known as an "Alford plea," the defendants essentially admitted there was enough evidence to convict them, yet maintain the right to state their innocence.

Immediately following their release, Damien and Jessie held a press conference and insisted they served 18 years for a crime they "did not commit."

Their story, a must-see for anybody who cares about justice, was laid out in all its cynical truth in the last of the series, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.

The film first aired on HBO last night. Look for a re-airing if you missed it.

Finding Nemo, the undersea classic from Disney and Pixar, returns to theaters in 3D this September. The 2003 hit won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Albert Brooks stars as Marlin, a maligned clownfish determined to rescue son Nemo, who was scooped up by an Aussie diver and placed in a tank with other captives.

Ellen DeGeneres is Dory, Marlin's lovable, memory-challenged sidekick.

Visually stunning then, and even now in standard definition, it should look even more so in three dimensions. Watch the trailer for the film's 3-D re-release here!

At some point in the somewhat near future, movie goers will have a chance to LOL at LOL, the upcoming dramedy that stars Miley Cyus as a confused teenager and Demi Moore as her mostly helpless mother.

There's no release date for the movie at the moment.

But that could change if there's an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the first trailer, which was released today. It hypes the film as being about "the time in all of our lives when we discover what we stand for," while showing clips of Miley's character goofing around and, eventually, falling in love.

I can't love him but I do. I feel so real with him, Cyrus says in the preview. Watch now and decide: Will you purchase a ticket for LOL?

Underworld Awakening, the fourth film of the franchise and starring latex-clad heroine Kate Beckinsale, arrives in theaters in both 3D and 2D January 20.

For those unfamiliar, the films center on the ongoing battle between lycans (werewolves) and vampires. Spoiler alert: They are still not fans of one another.

Underworld Awakening brings Selene (Beckinsale) back after an absence from the previous installment, and fans will not be let down, as she looks bad ass to say the least.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming journey to the Underworld below ...

If you thought The Dark Knight Rises trailer was epic, wait until you feast your eyes on it ... mashed up with footage from The Lion King! Well played again, Internet!

One of the 12 movies we're excited for 2012, and maybe the most hyped, Rises will be the swan song for star Christian Bale and director Christopher Nolan.

If the franchise wants to continue sans Bane, Simba makes a solid Bruce Wayne, we have to say. Nala is Catwoman, meanwhile, and Scar is Bane. Fitting.

Check out the awesomeness below:

The Hunger Games arrives in theaters March 23, and after seeing this homage, we can't wait to see the movie ... and hopefully Katniss and Co. in special edition Legos.

Watch the Lego version and the official trailer below:

The trailer for Prometheus has arrived, and the latest space odyssey from director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) looks like it may live up to its considerable hype.

From this introductory look, the film bears some resemblance to Alien - not just with its stunning, otherworldly visuals, but its theme of desperation against rising odds.

Many think the film is a prequel to Alien, a theory Scott denies, but it could be something of a companion piece, a film that exists in a parallel universe. Just a theory.

Starring Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, the film touches down in theaters summer 2012. Here's the Prometheus trailer ...
