“The Dark Knight Rises” debuts more new character posters

Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises

Posted by on

The promotional push for “The Dark Knight Rises” has shifted into a higher gear the last few days, with a fiery new poster arriving online yesterday and a flood of new images following in its wake today.

All told, six posters popped up on the ‘net today, split between a trio on the film’s official Facebook page and another three on Yahoo Movies. Each of the posters features a new shot of Batman (Christian Bale), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), or Bane (Tom Hardy), and sports the recurring, cryptic tagline “The Legend Ends.” The three posters at Yahoo also feature the somewhat contradictory, one-word theme “RISE,” but hey — who are we to criticize? If Christopher Nolan wants to Batman to rise while the legend ends, that’s his prerogative.

The posters all feature a similar theme as far as background setting, too. Each trio features the characters’ image against a backdrop of falling debris — or possibly ashes — which seems to go along with the frequently reiterated hint that Gotham will be hit hard in Nolan’s final Batman film.

Of course, the dark imagery of “The Dark Knight Rises” seems even more so when compared to all of the bright imagery used to promote and subsequently report on the tremendous success of “The Avengers” — the film that recently broke many of the box-office records set by Nolan’s previous Batman film, “The Dark Knight.” This summer is shaping up to be a true clash of the titans in theaters, but let’s face it: it’s never a bad thing to have too many good movies.

“The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters July 20, and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Morgan Freeman.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
