If you weren’t already excited about “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn,” now’s a pretty good time to start.

IFC explained back in August why the movie should be on your list of films to watch for, and the latest UK trailer highlights all the reasons fans have been clamoring for director Steven Spielberg‘s first foray into animation. Unlike the first trailer for the movie, this teaser choses to focus on the action and adventure sides of the story instead of the mysterious components. And did we mention how fantastic the motion capture animation that WETA did is?

WETA and actor Andy Serkis already wowed audiences earlier this year with the motion capture they did in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” and it looks like they’re at it again in “Tintin.” This new trailer gives a great sneak peek into the relationship between Jamie Bell‘s Tintin and Serkis’ Captain Haddock, and their friendship looks like it will be a central part of the movie. The motion capture performances that both actors give look to be the best use of the technology seen on film yet.

It’s hard to watch the trailer and not find comparisons to Spielberg’s earlier work. There’s a shot in the teaser that looks like it could have come right out of “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” had the “Indiana Jones” franchise had the advantage of animation and motion capture. It can’t be ignored that Peter Jackson is working alongside Spielberg on this project, and it will be exciting to see what he brings into the movie as well.

“The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” hits theaters in the US on December 21.

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.
