The Spike Scream Awards last night featured a whole lot more than just bringing together the cast members of “The Dark Knight Rises” on stage for the first time and finally acknowledging that “Game of Thrones” is the best TV show around. The annual nerd award show that honors all things horror, sci-fi and fantasy also included some new peeks at “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” and “Piranha 3DD.”

The new trailer for “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” ups the action from the previously released teaser. Everyone’s going to be kicking slo-mo, stylized butt in this sequel, which is for the most part exactly what fans are coming back to see. “A Game of Shadows” follows the Moriarty storyline that was introduced in the first “Sherlock Holmes” film, and features Noomi Rapace as the new leading lady.

This is the first trailer for the sequel — which comes out December 16 — that confirms former romantic interest Rachel McAdams will be back for at least a cameo. Judging by the make-out session at the end of the teaser, she could be back for a lot more than that. Fortunately, the trailer was just as entertaining as the poem Colin Farrell read to introduce the flick’s leading man, Robert Downey Jr.

Like its more modestly endowed predecessor, “Piranha 3DD” is shaping up to be a hilariously self-aware horror satire. Whether it’s David Hasselhoff kicking off the spring break celebrations, Ving Rhames telling someone to pass him his fake, rifle-enhanced legs or that brief Christopher Lloyd cameo, I can’t help but get excited for this film. The only thing that could be more thrilling is if someone told us “More Snakes on a Muthaf—in’ Plane” was headed to theaters soon. “Piranha 3DD” is headed to theaters in 2012.

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.
