“Scarface” returns to theaters for a one-day event

In 1983, the Oliver Stone-written, Brian De Palma-directed, Al Pacino-starring “Scarface” stormed into movie theaters, forever changing the way that rappers described themselves. The film, perhaps better known to younger viewers as “The movie version of ‘Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’,” will be returning to theaters to once again introduce you to that infamous “little friend” on Wednesday, August 31 at 7:30 p.m.

If you’ve somehow managed to get through your late teens and early 20s without having watched “Scarface” sincerely, ironically and then sincerely once again, it tells the story of Pacino’s Tony Montana. Playing a Cuban immigrant, Pacino fights through the Miami underworld and an improbable accent to become the city’s undisputed drug kingpin. Based on a 1932 film of the same name, since its release “Scarface” has become a cult classic and been appropriated by the gangsta rap neighborhood of the hip-hop community.

Later this month, the “Scarface Special Event” will air in theaters with “restored high-definition picture and enhanced audio,” and will be accompanied by a 20-minute feature that “showcases interviews with popular filmmakers and talent expressing how this epic feature redefined the gangster genre, leaving an enduring influence on cinema,” and presumably at least a half-dozen people doing their version of “Say hello to my little friend!”

The one-night event is being held to commemorate the first-ever Blu-ray release of the movie, which comes out on the following week on September 6. The regular version of the flick boasts exclusive new bonus content, but if you want to shell out the big bucks, you can pick up the “Scarface Special Limited Edition Blu-Ray,” including collectible SteelBook packaging, 10 exclusive art cards, a digital copy of the film, a DVD of the original 1932 “Scarface,” and even a “Scarface” themed humidor that will look hilariously ironic holding all your Swisher Sweets.

To get your tickets for the “Scarface Special Event,” head over to Fathom Events now.

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.
