“The Raven” trailer features plenty of John Cusack, Poe and blood

John Cusack is ready to send you all to hell. The long-anticipated trailer for James McTeigue‘s “The Raven” has hit the web today and looks to be a healthy combination of horror, murder mystery and action. Basically, if someone took parts of “Sherlock Holmes,” “Se7en” and ABC’s “Castle” and threw them in a blender, this is the tasty concoction that would come out.

For the uninitiated, Cusack plays a fictionalized version of Edgar Allen Poe who finds himself at the center of a controversy when a serial killer starts emulating the murders he depicts in his stories. He must team up with a young detective from Baltimore, played by Luke Evans, to try to stop the murderous string of kills. It ends up becoming a dangerous and bloody game of cat and mouse.

Only one image of the film had been released up until now, though “The Raven” did have a Comic-Con panel as well. It is the third directorial effort of James McTeigue, who also helmed “V for Vendetta” and “Ninja Assassin.” If you look closely enough in the trailer, there’s one particular scene that looks like it comes right out of “V.”

Also starring Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen, “The Raven” hits theaters on March 9. That gives it a few short weeks to make a name for itself before “The Hunger Games,” another gritty drama with a different target audience, hits theaters and likely goes on to make bucket loads of money. “The Raven” is occupying the same opening weekend that “Alice in Wonderland” and “Watchmen” had in the past, though, so hopefully that bodes well for it.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

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.)

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.
