Video: “RocknRolla” at Comic-Con 2008

Stars Gerard Butler, Jeremy Piven, Idris Elba and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges joined director Guy Ritchie for yesterday’s presentation on “RocknRolla,” Ritchie’s first film since infamous bomb “Revolver,” which took two years to reach U.S. shores. “RocknRolla,” which is about the Russian mob in London, is the film that everyone’s hoping represents a return to form for the director who first made a splash with snappy urban crime films like “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch.”

Mostly, though, all eyes were on Butler, who offered chocolates to the crowd of adoring female fans and answered questions on the nature of his role and whether it was as physically challenging as his part in “300.” Piven, in turn, offered his own fan service, saying “I’m completely overwhelmed by everyone’s focus and their dedication. I’m in honor of all of you and I celebrate each and everyone one of you — and I would like to do that personally, I’m in a service position for all of you. I would give you chocolate — I have no more chocolate left. But I am going to take my shirt off.”

While “RocknRolla” is set to open October 3rd, many were already looking forward to Ritchie’s next film, “Sherlock Holmes,” which promises (threatens?) to give a contemporary spin to the classic character, who’ll be played by Robert Downey, Jr. “It’s like James Bond in 1891,” producer Joel Silver offered. “It’s an action picture, it’s seeing Holmes the way he always should have been seen.”

Rev Up

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.
