Anna Kendrick As The New Indiana Jones Kicks Misogyny’s Ass


Posted by on

If you thought an all-female Ghostbusters movie gutted your childhood with a rusty nail, wait until you see Anna Kendrick in an Indiana Jones reboot. The Pitch Perfect 2 actress starred in this reimagining of The Last Crusade, taking over for Harrison Ford as Indianna (with two “n”s) Jones. But, as the knight guarding the Holy Grail found out, don’t you dare compliment her looks or she’ll give you a whiplash so severe that you’ll rethink your misogyny.

Watch the video below.

Indianna Jones and The Last Crusade was made in promotion of Red Nose Day. You’ve probably been seeing posters and commercials for it all around town without really knowing what it’s all about. Basically, think of Comic Relief in the style of Patch Adams: it’s a campaign culminating in a live event that is designed to raise money for the youth living in poverty by simply making people laugh. Hence, here’s the comedic spoof of what a female-led Indiana Jones reboot might look like.

Lucasfilm is already planning to continue the Indiana Jones franchise with more sequels, so why not let Kendrick carry the weight of such a franchise on her petite shoulders? Aside from the fact that the internet will explode with statements like, “my life is over,” “this is a sign of the apocalypse” and the like, Kendrick’s Indy will not only discover artifacts and dodge massive boulders, but she’ll also fight misogyny with her whip and words.

“Man, I’m a respected professor of archaeology. Times have changed!”

The Indianna Jones video is preceded by a title card goofing over Hollywood’s culture of gender-swapped remakes, but perhaps this means more spoofs like this one are on the way. We have some time before Red Nose Day drops, so expect more videos before then. Hopefully, they’ll all feature Kendrick remaking classic movies.

The live Red Nose Day benefit will take place on May 21 and can be seen on NBC starting at 8 pm.

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.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

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.
