this-is-only-a-test_emergency_broadcast_system2

It’s February and Groundhog’s Day has come and gone and whether you’re a fan of Punxsutawney Phil or Stan Island Stan or some other oversized rodent entirely, spring is coming. But not yet. It’s still cold and sleeting and hailing and freezing and raining and freezing raining. So just do the smart thing and leave the great outdoors to the groundhogs and stay inside watching IFC.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Christopher Walken takes us into “The Dead Zone” at 8/7c. Can you think of a better tour guide to the creepy world built by David Cronenbergy in his adaptation of the even creepier Stephen King novel? No, no you cannot.

Tuesday

Fluff your hair, put on your Raybans and find a white suit because we’re showing “Less Than Zero” at 3:45PM/2:45c. The film is based on Bret Easton Ellison’s 80s Gone Wild novel and stars Andrew McCarthy and Jami Gertz as Beverly Hills rich kids trying to help their friend played by Robert Downey Jr. who is hooked on cocaine.

Wednesday

At 8PM/ 7c Tom Hanks stars in “Charlie Wilson’s War.” The film casts Hanks as a congressman who, along with a socialite (Julia Roberts) and a CIA agent (Philip Seymour Hoffman), is instrumental to the funding of freedom fighters working against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Thursday

Before they entered “The Matrix,” the Wachowskis were “Bound,” their violent yet highly stylized neo-noir thriller made for quite the directorial debut. The film stars Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon as a gangster’s moll and an ex-con who embark on a scheme to swipe a mobster’s moolah. It starts at 10/9c.


Friday

“Batman & Robin” starring George Clooney and Chris O’Donnell as the titular caped crusaders join forces with Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone) to try and stop Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from wreaking revenge upon the world. It starts at 7:15 p.m. ET and is followed by a brand new episode of Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show “Portlandia” starts at 10/9c.

Saturday

AMC’s hit reality show “Comic Book Men” comes to IFC with a marathon of episodes kicking off at 1:30 p.m. ET. The show is set at “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” and “Clerks” creator Kevin Smith’s comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, in Red Bank, New Jersey. Tune in for back-to-back episodes and get ready for the geeks to inherit the earth when season two starts Thursday, Feb. 14th, 9/8c on AMC.

Sunday

Spend Sunday with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover when we show “Lethal Weapon 4″ at 3:45 p.m. ET. In their continuing adventures, the dynamic duo reprise their roles as Los Angeles police partners who take on members of a Chinese triad who are smuggling families from the mainland.
