“The Dark Knight Rises” teaser poster reveals the fury of Bane

The Dark Knight might be rising in theaters come July 20, but the new teaser poster for the flick broadcasts a broken Batman. The one-sheet for “The Dark Knight Rises” features the tagline “The Legend Ends” and its imagery implies the “The Man who Broke the Bat” storyline that villain Bane is best known for.

So does this mean that “The Dark Knight Rises” will go the same route that the comic book storyline does, with Bane breaking Batman’s spine and forcing Bruce Wayne to give up his Batman persona while he recuperated? Maybe. It certainly would be a plot line in keeping with the rest of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe. There are plenty of other routes Bane’s storyline could take in this film, but the shot of Batman’s mask shattered on the ground while the villain walks away in the background certainly makes us think that the Dark Knight’s spine might also get a bit smashed.

This poster jumpstarts the upcoming week of “The Dark Knight Rises” promotion that we’ve been anticipated for a while now. Fans will get an early look at the film’s prologue before IMAX screenings of “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” starting on December 14, and can even catch free screenings the night before at 10pm. There’s also a pretty good chance that a new, full-length “The Dark Knight Rises” trailer will debut before “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” on December 16. Both are sure to showcase all the elements of the movie we’re looking forward to, including Bane, Catwoman and Marion Cotillard’s mysterious character.

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.
