Incoming: Bergman’s last, Johnny Depp in Bollywood?

Posted by on

Erland Josephson and Liv UllmannTrailers: One for "Saraband," which director Ingmar Bergman has said will be his last film, here. Features his longtime favorites Erland Josephson and Liv Ullman (whose face seems to grow more fascinating and expressive each year) reprising their characters from "Scenes From a Marriage" thirty years later. It was shot on digital for Swedish television, with Sony Pictures Classics handing the theatrical release here, NY/LA on July 8.

Another trailer here, for "Dorian Blues," a little coming-out/coming-of-age comedy that’s been making the LGBT festival rounds and that will get a limited theatrical release in September.

Elsewhere, Sarah Michelle Gellar will continue doing her fighting cutesy girl thing, starring in an adaptation of "American McGee’s Alice," a dark, violent video game take on "Alice in Wonderland." Marcus Nispel, of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake, will direct.

Via ComingSoon, oddly punctuated choreographer-turned-director Franc. Reyes will be writing and directing a remake of Fritz Lang’s "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt." Reyes, who made his directorial debut with John Leguizamo vehicle "Empire," is apparently not afraid of the long shadows cast by the great directors, having previously announced he was working on a remake of Robert Wise’s fantastic 1949 noir "The Set-Up," which has our vote for best boxing movie of all time.

At Twitch, Todd uncovers four stills from Guy Maddin’s upcoming feature "The Brand Upon the Brain!"

Via CRI, "The World" director Jia Zhang-ke has announced that his next two films will be shot in Shanghai: the first will be a love story set during the Cultural Revolution, and the second about revolutionaries in the city during the 1920s, for which he hopes to recruit some foreign stars.

On that note, via Rediff, director Ashvin Kumar, whose "Little Terrorist" was nominated for Best Live Action Short at this year’s Academy Awards, is reportedly wooing Johnny Depp in hopes of casting him as the lead in a romantic comedy set in Kerala. Kumar is currently working on "The Forest," a bilingual ecological thriller that’s "purportedly the first made-in-India film to be backed by a Hollywood producer."

Finally, Ain’t It Cool News rumor of the day: the "Untitled Mike Judge Comedy" we know many are drooling over has, according to "Albert E.," been pushed back to fall and given the title "Idiocracy."

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.


Put A Bird On It

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

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.
