Make like a Kennedy.
Trailers: Here, a trailer for Emmanuel Bourdieu‘s "Poison Friends," about a French grad student… of evil!

Here’s is a trailer for "Gracie," an inspirational girl-plays-soccer-on-the-boys-team movie from Davis Guggenheim, whose last film was some doc about global warming. This one features two Shues — Elizabeth (who’s married to Guggenheim) and the long-lost Andrew (who slunk out of showbiz to play pro soccer after "Melrose Place."

And here‘s a trailer for Tribeca 2007 selection "Heckler," a Jamie Kennedy-produced doc about, yes, hecklers. We must say, "Why don’t you make like a Kennedy and die young?" is pretty good, especially for a Canadian.

Acquired: Strand Releasing has picked up André Téchiné‘s "The Witnesses" for a fall release. Strand also distributed Téchiné’s last film, Catherine Deneuve/Gérard Depardieu vehicle "Changing Times." [indieWIRE]

In the works: Ed Norton is The Incredible Hulk. Yes, it’s true, even E! Online says so. Rather eloquently, in fact:

Per Marvel, the movie will concern the Hulk being chased on account of he’s the Hulk, and he scares people, and Bruce Banner trying to figure out how not to be the Hulk anymore, so he doesn’t get chased or scare people. We paraphrase.

It was not known who or what will play the Hulk. In Lee’s version, a CGI blob handled the part. [E! Online]

"Hey, you created me. I didn’t create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better. Take some responsibility!" says Tyler Durden.

David Mamet has written and will direct "Redbelt," "an American samurai film set in an underworld inhabited by bouncers, cage-fighters, cops and special forces operatives," for Sony Pictures Classics for a summer 2008 release. Chiwetel Ejiofor has already been cast to star; we’re waiting on the inevitable Rebecca Pidgeon news. [Variety]

Tom Tykwer, of "Run Lola Run" and, more recently and less gloriously, "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," will direct Clive Owen in "The International,"  a thriller about an obsessive Interpol agent investigating a powerful, corrupt banking institution. [Hollywood Reporter]

John Malkovich, "Lost"‘s Evangeline Lilly and Romain Duris will star in "Afterwards," the new film from French director Gilles Bourdos: "In the feature, Duris will portray a workaholic lawyer drifting away from his ex-wife (Lilly) and daughter, who meets a mysterious doctor (Malkovich) who claims to have the power to predict people’s deaths." Hotness: Taiwanese cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-bin, of "Three Times," "In the Mood for Love" and others, is also on board. [Hollywood Reporter]

Dueling gay directorial icons! Bryan Singer and Gus Van Sant are both apparently trying to make films about Harvey Milk, San Francisco supervisor, first openly gay elected official in the U.S., assassinated in 1978, alongside Mayor George Moscone. Singer’s attached to Warner Independent’s "The Mayor of Castro Street," while Van Sant has attached himself to an untitled script on the subject by Dustin Lance Black, a writer on "Big Love." [Variety] "The Times of Harvey Milk," a documentary on the man, won the Academy Award in 1985. [Variety]

Eric Red, the writer behind the 1986 version of "The Hitcher," will write and direct "100 Feet," a thriller starring Famke Janssen as a woman who murders her abusive husband (Bobby Cannavale) and then is haunted by his presumably still abusive ghost. [Variety]

And one to grow on: Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter on "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "The Empire Strikes Back" and others, is working on a remake of "Clash of the Titans." No word on whether the Kracken will available following its engagement in parts 2 and 3 of "Pirates of the Carribean." [Hollywood Reporter]

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
