“Star Wars” prequels get back-to-back 3D rerelease dates

If you’ve been desperate to know when “Star Wars: Episode II” and “Episode III” would be getting their 3D rereleases, we’ve got some great news for you. During this past weekend at the Star Wars Celebration VI, it was announced that the last two prequel films would be returning to the big screen in back-to-back releases next year.

The release dates were confirmed on the “Star Wars” Facebook page. “Attack of the Clones” will hit theaters on September 20, 2013 and “Revenge of the Sith” is due out on October 11, 2013.

It’s an interesting move for LucasFilm to make, and we can only see one reason for it: the original trilogy is being post-converted to 3D as well. “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace” hit theaters earlier this year and made around $44 million, which is a decent pull for a 3D movie that came out more than a decade ago. We can expect the next two prequel films to do the same if not better, and then we’re free to have “A New Hope,” “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” in theaters between 2014 and 2016.

Honestly, the sooner we can move past the new trilogy the better. It’s not a secret that the prequels are a bit divisive, and “Phantom Menace” didn’t look that great in 3D. Hopefully George Lucas is taking a page out of James Cameron’s book and is lovingly converting the original “Star Wars” trilogy into 3D so it doesn’t have the same problems “Phantom Menace” did. Then we can all anxiously await the likely 3D Blu-ray “Star Wars” boxed set that will likely be announced after these movies hit theaters.

Will you see “Attack of the Clones” or “Revenge of the Sith” in 3D? 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.

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.
