New “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D” posters put the Force that much closer to being with you


Posted by on

Five new posters have been released in anticipation of the February 10 release of “Star Wars: Episode 1 — The Phantom Menace” in 3D, and we’re liking them a hell of a lot more than we liked the first one.

Kino Gallery posted the images, which largely feature Darth Maul. Three of the five posters toy with the imagery of the lightsaber, which actually comes out looking really great.

Though some of the film’s “key characters” are back on the promotional material — we mean Anakin Skywalker, not Jar-Jar Binks fortunately — the focus of the new posters are definitely on the cooler aspects of the movie. We’re of course talking about Darth Maul, pod-racing and Qui-Gonn. And while spoiler alert none of those three live beyond the first movie, they’re still worth celebrating in poster form. And the posters really are pretty awesome.

Other than the pod-racing poster, none of these really play up what we’ll be seeing in 3D. Instead they focus on the characters, taking points from the original “Phantom Menace” posters released back in the late ’90s and updating them to promote fans’ favorite aspects of the franchise. In other words, lightsabers and the Jedi vs. Sith battle.

“The Phantom Menace” was originally released on May 18, 1999. The film was directed by George Lucas and stars Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Jake Lloyd.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

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.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

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.
