“Prometheus” international poster reveals more details

It’s no secret that we’re more than a little excited about the upcoming Ridley Scott film “Prometheus.” Aside from marking the director’s return to science fiction, the presence of an amazing cast and the already riveting glimpses we’ve had from the film, this may be the movie that uncovers the mystery behind the the entire “Alien” franchise.

And in the spirit of revealing, the release of the international poster for “Prometheus” gives a more detailed look at the giant head statue that was covered in shadows in the original US release. You can compare the two at the bottom of this post.

While the poster does a nice job of pulling the curtain back a little more on one of the mystery artifacts of “Prometheus,” we already have two great looks at the room featuring the statue and the carefully arranged canisters from the trailer.

And we’ve seen a giant, bald alien in the cockpit that looks exactly like the one where Ripley, Dallas and Kane found the dead space jockey in the first “Alien” film.

Also interesting to note in the international poster is the design of the walls, especially when compared to the egg chamber that Kane (John Hurt) descended in to.

While “Prometheus” may not be an “Alien” prequel in the sense that it won’t have the titular xenomorph that ran amuck for another 3 films and two “Predator” crossovers, it may be the film that solves the mysteries of why the ship was crashed on LV-246, how the pilot got infected, why he was carrying such deadly cargo, where that cargo came from and if there was something even worse on board. It might also solve why every time the corporation hears that something horrible is ravaging its employees, their first imperative is to save the thing instead of the employees.

Prometheus is directed by Ridley Scott and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba. It will be released June 8, 2012.

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.

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.
