Move over “Noah,” Darren Aronofsky has another epic to attend to. The “Black Swan” director might be busy at work prepping for his “big event film,” but it was recently announced that he has a new side project that might take some precedence over bringing Noah’s biblical tale to the big screen.

Associated Press has learned that Aronofsky is going to be directing a music video from the new Metallica and Lou Reed album, “Lulu.” He’ll shoot the video for “Iced Honey” soon and the whole video will be ready for public consumption later this month. And if fans were worried that the music video — a first for Aronofsky — would somehow lose his signature touch, they’ll be happy to know he’s bringing his cinematographer Matthew Libatique along for the job as well.

Needless to say, the men of Metallica are pretty thrilled. Drummer Lars Ulrich told AP that he’s “living the dream” by getting to work with Aronofsky.

“As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough, now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky, who has been among my very favorite filmmakers since his first movie, ‘Pi,'” he said.

Reed is also excited about the news. He told AP that he hopes the music video for “Iced Honey” can be Aronofsky’s “next ‘Black Swan.'”

This isn’t the only movie Metallica is planning on working on. They’re also planning on a 3D feature film, though any more details on it than that are scarce to come by. /Film makes a good point by saying that Aronofsky might become interested in the project after working wit Metallica on this video. Or, based on the terrible reviews for “Lulu,” it might turn him off to the idea all together.

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.
