“The Dark Knight Rises” Bat-Pod and Tumbler heading to a city near you

The Dark Knight's Tumbler

Posted by on

“The Dark Knight Rises” Tumbler and Bat-Pod will soon be coming to a city near you.

A new website called Tumbler Tour offers more details about the cross country event that starts in Arkansas on May 12 and ends in Los Angeles on July 7. So far 26 stops have been announced in 19 states, D.C. and Canada, but there are more locations to be added in the coming weeks. Stay tuned into Facebook and Twitter for updates, and check out the full list of stops so far at the bottom of this article.

In other “The Dark Knight Rises” news, Total Film has revealed a new high-res image of Bane and a snippet of their interview with Tom Hardy. When asked how it was working with the mask, he said it wasn’t bad… if you like drooling all over yourself.

“It’s not as bad as you might think. You just put it on. Work out where your drool goes. That’s it,” he said. “Mask work is good fun. This one wasn’t painful; there was the stunt mask and there was the up-close on for the sexy glam shots.”

SuperHeroHype has some snippets from the Total Film story as well, including producer Emma Thomas talking about Bane’s brutality in “The Dark Knight Rises” compared to the Joker’s mind games, and Christian Bale explaining how Batman’s life is surrounded by pain. But his most foreboding clip came when he said that this movie is going to be action-packed.

“Chris is very good at recognising the kind of movie that we’re making, that we’re not making a little character piece,” Bale said. “There’s no reason why you can’t have a substantial amount of character in it, but we’re not going to go so far that people say, ‘This is no longer the excitement I’m looking for.’ It’s the end of an era. For me, personally, and for Batman.”

Directed by Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman. It’s coming to theaters and IMAX on July 20.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.
