Mr. Curtis "50 Cent" JacksonTrailers first, in order of importance as decided arbitrarily by our bad self, which is why much of the mediocre navel-gazing Sundance stuff being dumped in the dog days of August will be down by the bottom: one for "Get Rich or Die Tryin’," Jim Sheridan directing one Curtis 50 Cent Jackson, is here (we’re intrigued, though not convinced of Mr. Jackson’s acting chops yet); one for "V for Vendetta" is here; one for "Walk The Line," Joaquin Phoenix doing Johnny Cash (and hot!) here; one for the très Aussie "Little Fish" here; one for "Junebug," with both the awesome Alessandro Nivola and Benjamin "The O.C." McKenzie here; one for disfunc-fam (that’s "disfunctional family," we’re trying to get it to catch on) drama "Thumbsucker" here; one for another disfunc-fam/dark-side-of-suburbia ensemble (dance the Sundance!) "The Chumscrubber" here; and one for beige-looking military rescue Miramax dump "The Great Raid" (with James Franco as the fabulously named Captain Prince) here.

Elsewhere, Mel Gibson‘s next directorial effort, "Apocalypto," will not be religiously themed, but will once again be in a long-dead language, namely a dialect of ancient Mayan. Via the Guardian, Matt Damon is in talks to play Lance Armstrong in a biopic of the once cancer-ridden, Sheryl Crow-dating champion cyclist. Via Reuters, a "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" movie is in the works:

The story being developed will be based on the series about five maverick explorer-pilots who must travel to the planet Arus to learn how to operate Voltron, a giant mechanical warrior formed by five smaller robots. The gargantuan robot is the last hope against the evil Drule Empire that has subjugated Earth and taken control of the universe.

Pharrell will be doing the score and exec producing. Also via Reuters, Jody Foster will return to the director’s chair to helm "Sugar Kings," about an idealistic lawyer who takes on a powerful sugar baron on behalf of exploited migrant workers. She may also star. Annnnnnnd…via AP, Steven Spielberg‘s upcoming movie about the aftermath of the tragedy that took place at the 1972 Munich Olympics gets a name…"Munich."

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

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.
