Video: “The Wolf Man” at Comic-Con 2008

Posted by on


“I’ve been making myself up as a wolf man since I was ten years old,” claimed legendary make-up artist Rick Baker, who’s won six Oscars for his work in films as varied as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Ed Wood” and “An American Werewolf in London.” He’s a natural fit, then, for director Joe Johnston’s update of the 1941 Universal horror film starring Lon Chaney Jr. Those classics “were the films that made want to do what I do,” Baker announced at the Comic-Con panel for the new film. “When I heard they were doing ‘The Wolf Man,’ I actually went to somebody I knew at Universal and said ‘I have to do this movie. I really want to do this movie.’ And, fortunately, they listened.”

The gracious Baker described “The Wolf Man,” which opens on April 3rd, 2009, as “pretty old school,” praising the studio’s choice to have an actor in make-up playing the lead instead of making the character computer-generated. Joining Baker on the panel were Emily Blunt, who plays female lead Gwen Conliffe, and the wolf man himself, Benicio Del Toro, who found his way to the role after his agent spotted a poster for the original movie in his house.

Take a look at video clips from the panel below:

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.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

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.
