“World War Z” first footage arrives days before debut trailer


Posted by on

“World War Z” has been delayed and delayed and delayed, but now it is finally close to seeing the light of day. The Brad Pitt-starring zombie apocalypse flick is due in theaters on June 21, 2013, and the project will soon be releasing its first trailer.

You know what that means: It’s time for a teaser for that trailer! In light of the release of the first theatrical trailer on Thursday, ET has a very short look at what the trailer will include. There’s plenty of Pitt here (of course), but there are also quite a few shots of swirling masses of zombies careening around the world. We don’t know if this imagery is supposed to compare the zombie apocalypse to a natural disaster, but that was the first thing we thought of when we saw the shots.

We have known for a while that “World War Z” will feature fast zombies, but we didn’t know quite what that would mean until we saw this video. We’ll have to wait until we see the full trailer to see if that changes our opinion on these zombie swarms, but for now our George Romero-loving hearts are rebelling just a little bit.

It will be interesting to see how “World War Z” strikes the balance between the Pitt family drama and the apocalyptic end-of-the-world scenario. It’s rare to see a zombie flick end happily, but it seems like this could be the first one to do so. It’s safe to say that this is a pretty big departure from the Max Brooks novel that it’s based on.

“World War Z” also stars James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz and David Morse. Directed by Marc Forster, it’s due in theaters on June 21, 2013.

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.

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.
