“Gangster Squad” trailer shows Josh Brolin, Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling at their best

Gangster Squad

Posted by on

The Baby Goose is at it again, but this time he’s got some back up.

The trailer for “Gangster Squad” has finally arrived, and consider us enamored. The Warner Bros film reprises some of our favorite movie pairings: Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and director Ruben Fleischer and Sean Penn versus the world.

Honestly, this movie seems to have everything we love about all the actors involved. Emma Stone being sexy. Nick Nolte being a badass. Josh Brolin shooting guns. Ryan Gosling shooting guns. Sean Penn shooting guns. And with all of this set to the backdrop of a crime-ridden Los Angeles in the 1940s and 1950s, what more could we ask for in a film?

There are definitely some awesome visual cues present here. That scene of the gangsters shooting through a movie theater screen towards the end takes us right back to the badass ending of “Inglorious Basterds.” Gosling staring down the barrel of a gun immediately brings “Drive” to mind. We already know that Fleischer, who also helmed “Zombieland” and “30 Minutes or Less,” has a soft spot for other films, so it’s seems safe to assume he honored some of his favorite gangster and action movies with this flick.

“Gangster Squad” is based on Paul Lieberman’s seven-part Los Angeles Times series “Tales from the Gangster Squad” (you can read it here). The movie also stars Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi and Robert Patrick. It was supposed to come out on October, but is now listed as “coming soon.” Hopefully we’ll have a new release date soon.

Final Countdown

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.

Rev Up

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.
