05242005_hostel_1Rad—> Ain’t It Cool has images from Eli Roth‘s near mythical follow-up to his low-budget horror success "Cabin Fever," "Hostel." Roth may be a promising filmmaker, but right now his major skill seems to be having fabulous friends, as one can gather with a quick glance at his IMDB "special thanks" credits. Interestingly, his next projects are listed as a "Bad Seed" remake and "The Box," which was written by "Donnie Darko"‘s Richard Kelly. Anyway, "Hostel" looks to be at least as disgusting as the leg shaving scene in "Cabin Fever," with the special bonus of a cameo by Takashi Miike, whose work Roth apparently became obsessed with. "Hostel" is being released by Screen Gems, so it will probably see few theaters.

Via Empire, in what may be the oddest collision of cinematic worlds since Roger Moore nailed Grace Jones in "A View to a Kill" (we side with the reader who pointed this moment out to David Edelstein at Slate — that was a way weirder visual disconnect than Samuel L. Jackson and Yoda), Sylvester Stallone is apparently set to direct an Edgar Allen Poe biopic based on a script he wrote himself.

Also in Empire, the now all-powerful Johnny Depp will exec produce as well as star in another Hunter S. Thompson work — "The Rum Diary." Bruce Robinson, of "Withnail & I," will direct.

In the Independent, a lengthy bit on the cinematic history of Lassie, including the story’s British origins, and the current UK production based on these Lassie roots (dog sold to buy food for poor family, finds its way back to said family over thousands of miles, eaten by family, now hungry again…yes, we added that last part ourselves).

From ComingSoon, Christian "Batman" Bale and Steve Zahn will star in Werner Herzog‘s next film, "Rescue Dawn." And via E! Online, Topher Grace joins "Spider-Man 3" in some mysterious, yet-unnamed, possibly villainous role.

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.
