Incoming: Trailer overload, an “Atonement” adaptation.

Posted by on

"I sing of a baggage that we all adore / The landlord's daughter."Many, many trailers: one for "Little Manhattan," a kiddie romance with parents played by Bradley Whitford (of "The West Wing") and Cynthia Nixon (of "Sex in the City") is here; one for "Proof," featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gwyneth Paltrow making out and Anthony Hopkins and the great Hope Davis as plot devices here; one for "Tom Yum Goong," the new Tony Jaa action flick, here; one for Spanish black comedy "Ferpect Crime," which opens in New York next week and in LA the week after, here; one for "Aeon Flux," Karyn Kusama‘s (of "Girlfight," a film we were rather fond of) live-action adaptation of the old MTV animated series, here; and those fabulous types at Twitch are hosting a trailer for small Canadian indie horror film "The Dark Hours" here.

Elsewhere — via the BBC, Anand Tucker, of "Hilary and Jackie" and the upcoming Steve Martin film "Shopgirl," will take over the first film of the planned "His Darkest Materials" trilogy. Chris Weitz, of "About a Boy," was originally attached to direct what may be the launching point for a big budget franchise (and if you haven’t read Philip Pullman’s young adult novels yet, we highly recommend them — ridiculously dark and disturbing, and inspired by "Paradise Lost"(!)), but pulled out, feeling it was beyond him.

Via Reuters, Leelee Sobieski and Ellen Burstyn are joining Nicolas Cage in Neil Labute‘s "The Wicker Man" remake, Sobieski in the Britt Ekland role (with infamous slappy dance?) and Burstyn in either the Christopher Lee role (!) or the Diane Cilento role, it’s not clear. We’re curious as to the point of this remake, but we’re also curious as to how it will turn out.

Empire reports that Joe Wright, director of the upcoming Keira Knightley-d "Pride & Prejudice," will be directing an adaptation of Ian McEwan‘s Booker-nominated "Atonement."

And, via the Guardian, Meryl Streep will Martha Mitchell, the whistle-blowing wife of former US attorney general John Mitchell and the woman whose revealing of critical information to journalist like Bob Woodward ultimately brought down Nixon, in a film adaptation of John Jeter’s play "Dirty Tricks," which premiered at The Public Theater in New York last year.

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.
