“Star Trek 2”
We still have plenty of movies to be excited for in 2012 — hello, “Prometheus,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Hobbit” — but we can’t help but look forward to the blockbuster film slate in 2013. That’s why the Q&A following the screening of “Shaun of the Dead” kept returning to “Star Trek 2.”

“We wrapped last week, and it’s going to be awesome,” Pegg promised.

Not satisfied with that answer, one fan asked Pegg to tell the audience everything there is to know about the movie. Pegg jokingly complied, teasing, “It all starts on the Enterprise. Kirk turns to Scotty and goes, ‘You want it?'”

In all seriousness, Pegg acknowledged that he unfortunately couldn’t tell us much about the movie. But his ambiguous answer was still enough to get us excited for the project.

“I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience, we had the best time, I know this bullshit always comes out at press time,” he said. “With the [first] film having established the characters as they are now, we can really hit the ground running with this one. It’s fast, and it really doesn’t fucking stop until the end. I’m excited. That’s what I’ll say.”

“Ant-Man”
Though we were at the festival to honor Wright’s work on “Shaun of the Dead,” talk inevitably turned to his potential upcoming Marvel project, “Ant-Man.” Wright didn’t give away much about the status of the film — “I have to give a spectacularly vague non-answer,” he hedged — but he did talk about how it felt talking about it following “The Avengers'” record-breaking opening weekend.

“It’s kind of nerve-wracking. I saw Kevin Feige afterwards and I said, ‘How does Shane Black feel?’ ‘Avengers’ just had the biggest opening weekend of all time,” Wright said. “I thought that movie was great, and it was a credit to Kevin Feige for seeing that six film arc and kind of courage to actually commit to that seven years ago. It’s kind of amazing.”

“Man of Steel”
Also not willing to give away much about his upcoming movie was Zack Snyder, who was hilariously harassed all night by “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman to try to give away some tidbits of information about “Man of Steel.” Unfortunately Kirkman’s appeals didn’t work, but Snyder did give a very vague update on the project.

“It’s going really good, I’m cutting right now,” Snyder said. “I’m really excited about it. I think it’s fun to work on. It’s gigantic and crazy stuff. I can’t believe I just said that. Spoiler alert, right? Gigantic and crazy.”

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.
