New “Rock of Ages” trailer has Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta-Jones headed for a musical showdown

The week that Tom Cruise makes his triumphant return as Ethan Hunt in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” is the same week that he makes his most dramatic — and hilarious — transformation since he turned into a Diet Coke-drinking, hip-hop-rapping overweight movie producer named Les Grossman in “Tropic Thunder.” His “Rock of Ages” onstage rocker, Stacee Jaxx, has the longest (and dreamiest) hair we’ve ever expected to see on him, though the whole signing a groupie’s boobs thing isn’t too far off.

The adaptation of the hit Broadway musical doesn’t actually star Cruise as its lead, though. That role goes to Diego Boneta, who thus far has only really starred in teen shows like “Pretty Little Liars” and “90210,” but who is playing Adam in the recently delayed adaptation of “Paradise Lost.” The leading lady is “Footloose” star Julianne Hough, who plays Boneta’s love interest.

Needless to say, we aren’t going to be tuning in for these relative unknowns. We’re going to be watching for Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston, Will Forte, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones and, of course, Cruise. Kevin Nash, Malin Akerman and Mary J. Blige help sweeten the deal too.

The movie looks like a nice, tongue-in-cheek take on the musical genre, and our soft spot for ’80s classics also helps a bit. “Rock of Ages” hits theaters on June 1.

The Best Of The Last

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.
