Colin Farrell and Sam Rockwell steal Shih Tzus in the “Seven Psychopaths” trailer

Seven-Psychopaths1

Posted by on

When Martin McDonagh released his 2008 feature film debut “In Bruges,” we were blown away. It looks like his sophomore project “Seven Psychopaths,” which reteams him with “In Bruges” leading man Colin Farrell, will be an appropriate follow-up to the promise shown in his first movie.

“Seven Psychopaths” looks to be much more of a straight comedy than “In Bruges” was, which ended up having its darkness overshadow its witty writing. In this project, McDonagh travels from Bruges to Los Angeles where he tells the story of a struggling writer and his dognapping friends who accidentally steal the wrong man’s Shih Tzu.

McDonagh acquired quite the cast for himself in “In Bruges” (Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes and Jordan Prentice), but he’s really outdone himself this time around. The seven psychopaths in “Seven Psychopaths” are played by Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits, Christopher Walken, Abbie Cornish and Olga Kurylenko. If there was ever a group of people we wanted to see act together in an intelligent film, it’s this one.

Despite the performances that we’re assuming will be great from the film’s stars, it looks like “Seven Psychopaths” will be carried by its writing. McDonagh has already won an Oscar for his short film “Six Shooter” and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay with “In Bruges,” so it’s no shock that the script for “Seven Psychopaths” is incredibly strong. We’re just happy that he found actors who could pull off his style of storytelling so well.

Here’s the official synopsis of “Seven Psychopaths,” courtesy of CBS Films:

An alcoholic screenwriter (Colin Farrell) struggling to write a serial-killer script gets more real-life inspiration than he can handle when a dognapping scheme gone awry brings a galaxy of crazies to his doorstep. A top-notch cult-movie cast — including Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits, Harry Dean Stanton-anchors this wacky, blood-spattered commentary on the psycho-killer thriller from the writer-director of In Bruges.

The film is due in theaters on October 12.

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.
