“The Amazing Spider-Man” promo video leads to new footage of The Lizard

Spider-Man swings back to the big screen in July, and two new videos from the film’s marketing campaign offer a bit more footage of the villain Peter Parker will be facing when “The Amazing Spider-Man” hits theaters.

The first video to hit the ‘net this week features Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, and introduces the internship program at Oscorp Industries.

“It all begins with herpetology, the study of reptiles” says Ifans, foreshadowing his character’s transformation into The Lizard, the savage, reptilian creature seen in the most recent trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man.”

That video leads to the Oscorp Industries website, where fans can play a game that eventually unlocks the second video. Players are required to match colored portions of elements in order to form a string between two molecules.

If you’re not interested in playing the game, don’t worry — the video that becomes available after playing through the game has already made its way online. It contains some new footage showing Dr. Connors’ transformation into The Lizard, and a nice shot of the scientist regrowing his arm and, at a later point, in the middle of his full-on transformation.

Here’s the second video:

Last week, we dissected the latest “Amazing Spider-Man” trailer and identified a few key scenes worth another look — including one of the great shots featuring The Lizard and Spider-Man brawling on top of the Oscorp Industries tower. Given how much of the trailer seems to be set in and around the Oscorp lab, Oscorp Industries (and most likely, the Osborn family that owns it) certainly seems to play a major role in this rebooted Spider-Man movie universe.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” arrives in theaters July 3, and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.

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.
