NBC has provided us with a sneak preview of this week’s episode of COMMUNITY titled “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons,” (Airing Thursday, February 3 at 8:00p.m. PM/ET on NBC). Plot synopsis:
The study group takes a journey into the dark world of Dungeons & Dragons with Abed at the helm. When Jeff (Joel McHale) becomes concerned about “Fat Neil,” (Guest Star Charley Koontz, “Gigantic”) a fellow Greendale student who’s a bit of a loner, the gang invites him to play a game of Dungeons & Dragons to boost his spirits and his confidence. But when Pierce (Chevy Chase) discovers he’s been excluded, he forces his way into the game and takes charge, disrupting their delicate plan. The gang jumps whole-heartedly into their Dungeons & Dragons roles — Señor Chang becomes “C-Bone the Magnificent,” Shirley is “Brutalitops the Barbarian,” Troy is “Bing Bong the Archer,” Annie is “Hector the Well-Endowed,” Britta is “Lavernica” and Jeff is “Marrrrr.”

Alex Winter talks to Icon Vs. Icon about his upcoming 3D remake of The Gate:
“We’re in pre-production. It’s a pretty complicated effects job so I’m not gonna be shooting for a while. I’m not gonna be shooting ‘til the middle or late part of this year. Dealing with 3D test and creature design and all that kind of stuff right now which takes awhile.” … “The Gate, really for me, cinematically is a film whooper. You’re doing one set of people in one house from beginning to end. It’s the whole movie in one house. So the things that you can do with space and architecture and foreground and detail over the course of a hellish journey in one house in 3D is really exciting to me from a film standpoint.” … “I really want to make a movie that it’s fun and it’s an adventure and it’s not Jaws or Saw but it is a PG-13 movie for kids that while it’s fun and has humor definitely has some darkness and some edge. And I’ve got kids, I’ve got three, and I know what scares them and I know what makes them laugh and I’m looking forward to doing both of those things!”

Warner Bros. has released the poster for their upcoming romantic comedy Emily Giffin adaptation Something Borrowed, which stars Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. Plot synopsis follows:
Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single…as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she’s had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), who just happens to be Darcy’s fiancé. When Rachel and Darcy’s lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), who has been Rachel’s constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus (Steve Howey), an irrepressible womanizer, can’t keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.
