Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Iron Sky” trailer with director Timo Vuorensola

Iron Sky

Posted by on

As a huge genre nerd, I’d been tracking the progress of the German film “Iron Sky” for six or seven years, watching them take their project from concept art to fully-realized scenes and eventually to a feature-length film. It’s been a long and winding road, but now with a U.S. distributor lined up, they’re prepared to unleash their truly bizarre cult film on the unsuspecting world.

“Iron Sky” imagines that at the end of World War II, remnants of the Third Reich packed up and moved to the dark side of the moon, totally unbeknownst to the Allied powers. Now, roughly 70 years later and fully re-armed, the Nazis are planning to invade their home world and pick up where Hitler left off. “Iron Sky” basically picks up there, tracking a group of infiltrators who land their flying saucers in New York City in preparation for the big invasion.

To get the inside scoop, we turned to director Timo Vuorensola, who agreed to record a commentary track for the “Iron Sky” trailer. In his “Call-In Commentary,” Vuorensola outlines the story for us and introduces us to his main characters, including a Sarah Palin-esque figure that’s bound to either amuse or offend. For those wishing to see the film on the big screen, click here and demand that it be shown in your area.

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.

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

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.
