Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology-inspired film “The Master” could hit theaters in October


Posted by on

Ever since it was first announced, Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” has been mired in controversy, largely due to the film taking an unknown amount of inspiration from the life story of deceased science fiction writer and religion-starter, L. Ron Hubbard. Now, presumably despite the best efforts of Tom Cruise and the most loyal Sea Org members, and to the delight of film fans and Anoynmous members alike, the “Boogie Nights” and “Magnolia” director’s newest work could see release this October.

The news came via Cigarettes & Red Vines, which claims to be, and makes a good case for being “The Definitive P.T. Anderson Resource.” The site, which may or may not be doing Xenu’s work, tweeted at a producer on the film, Megan Ellison, asking when they might be able to see the film, and received this reply: “@cigsandredvines I know you guys are waiting on a release date for ‘the Master’, and it’s still a bit early, but I’d keep my eyes on October.”

An October release date would put the film right in that Academy Awards sweet spot, which given the murderer’s row of talent involved would seem like a pretty smart move by Ellison as well as The Weinstein Company, which will be distributing the film domestically. “The Master” is written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, features a cast that includes Anderson regular Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Laura Dern, and will boast music by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, who composed the rightfully raved-about score for Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood”.

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.
