New “Prometheus,” “The Avengers,” “The Hobbit” pictures hit the web

Today you can thank USA Today for officially getting you stoked for the film slate in 2012. The newspaper got their hands on a ton of new stills from some of the 12 movies they think fans should be most excited for in the new year. Fortunately, we couldn’t agree with them more.

Arguably the coolest picture is for “The Bourne Legacy,” which offers a first look at Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross in the continuation of Matt Damon’s “Bourne” trilogy. Other than looking angry and severe in the image, there’s not too much we can gather from it about the movie. Still, we’re glad just to have something to start hyping the film’s August 3 release date.

The media gallery also includes new images for “The Avengers,” “Prometheus,” “The Hobbit,” “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Brave.” The “Prometheus” one offers a clear look at Noomi Rapace in the film. And just was is it that she’s holding in her hand?

“The Avengers” image is a variation on the many shots we’ve seen of Captain American and Thor released over the past few months. The superhero duo are in the middle of a big battle in New York City, though we can’t help but wonder where Iron Man and Hulk are during all of this.

Rounding out the big new releases, “The Hobbit” still features Martin Freeman looking, well, like a hobbit. His hairy feet and pointed ears might not be the most flattering aspects of his new look, but at least we can give him props for his sense of style. Seriously, can it be December 14 already? The next 11 months can’t fly by fast enough.

The still from “Snow White and the Huntsman” continues to showcase Charlize Theron as the real reason to be excited for this film. She looks fantastically evil here on her throne as the appropriately titled Evil Queen. And the “Brave” image is similar to the shot we’ve seen in the trailer of Merida and her family discussing some of their favorite Scottish legends.

Which of these new pictures is your favorite? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

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.
