Incoming: We ♥ Ian McShane version.

Posted by on

060205_mcshaneTrailers: See Keira Knightley attempt Elizabeth Bennet in the latest "Pride and Prejudice" incarnation here. And a UK trailer for big-deal "young Latino boy from L.A. makes it to the European big leagues" soccer flick "Goal!" is here, and looking rather edgier and less Disneyfied than we expected, despite the fact that Disney actually picked up the US rights to the film. We presume when it makes its way here they’ll tone down the whole groupie sex angle.

Distro news: Sony Pictures Classics will handle the US release of this years Cannes Palme d’Or winner, the Dardennes brothers’ "L’Enfant (The Child)." And DreamWorks buys the US rights to Woody Allen’s "Match Point" for a reported $4 million, a chancy move on their part — despite the great buzz the film (which screened out of competition) got at Cannes, Allen’s films have consistently tanked at the box office for the past, oh, decade or so. Then again, we heard Allen was holding out for as much as $10 million for "Point," so maybe $4 mill looked like a deal to them compared to that.

Speaking of M. Allen, now that’s he’s found a new nubile muse (Scarlett Johansson) and a new dream city (London), might he have found that old something that once made his films worth watching? We’re hopeful, as he’s apparently signed British actor Ian McShane for his next film, in which the director will once more be making an appearance. McShane, for you non-"Deadwood" types, is the most charismatic actor in the universe. We’re intrigued.

Elsewhere — Kevin Spacey will do a reality TV-show, which is not nearly as interesting as the Guardian makes it sound in their headline. And Camilla Belle, who was rather awesome in the otherwise mixed "The Ballad of Jack and Rose," will star in a remake of 1979’s terrorized babysitter classic (isn’t it wonderful how meaningless that word is these days?) "When a Stranger Calls."

And the Ain’t It Cool rumor of the day: you’ve doubtless already read about director Matthew Vaughn‘s ankling "X-Men 3" nine weeks before shooting was to begin in order to "spend more time with his family"; AICN‘s Moriarty claims his replacement will either be John Moore (of "Flight of the Phoenix" and "Behind Enemy Lines") or that ultimate Hollywood accessory (every entourage needs one), Brett Ratner (we didn’t know that Robert Evans was letting him out of the pool house these days).

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
