Just in case the fact that both Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin appeared with Will Smith on the last teaser poster for Men in Black III (MIB3) made it seem as if Brolin was the alien activities monitoring agency's newest recruit instead of the younger version of Jones' Agent K character, Columbia Pictures has issued new teaser posters that separate the two actors. (Hilariously, they didn't bother re-shooting a full image of Jones with gun in hand, choosing instead to simply plunk his head over Brolin's body making it seem as if he has a freakishly small hand.)
Once again directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, MIB3 finds Agent J (Smith) up against another alien threat, one that seems to be specifically targeting the MIB agency and J's longtime partner and mentor, Agent K (Jones). In order to foil the plot against K, the agency and the world, J must travel back in time and team up with the younger-but-still-grumpy K (Brolin). see the new posters >> Posted 03.03.12 by BrentJS
A new photo and poster has been revealed for comic book movie Men in Black III.
Now seen as a movie franchise for actors Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, it's easy to forge that Agents J and K began their existence in a 1990 comic book series written by Lowell Cunningham that was adapted into the massively successful first movie, Men in Black. We're sure that Sony would prefer that audiences forget about the sequel, but it is true that Men in Black II was made in 2002, though most of those that saw it weren't too happy with the effort.
Skip to ten years later and Smith and Jones are at it again, although now with Josh Brolin tagging along, playing a younger version of Jones. Men in Black III will see Smith travel back to the 1960s, a fact that the latest poster, with its tagline "back in time," is hoping to drive home. The latest photo also features Brolin, as he offers Smith a weapon from what looks to be the trunk of his car. see the full poster and photos >> Posted 02.22.12 by Ryan
I Am Lengender? I Am More of a Legend?
Looks like someone will have to come up with a title for the sequel to 2007's I Am Legend, likely screenwriter-producer Akiva Goldsman. Deadline reports that the studio has closed a deal with Goldsman and Overbrook Entertainment, Will Smith's production company, for another installment. more about the planned installment >> Posted 02.18.12 by Ryan
For years, Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has been trying to break into directing, specifically for a movie adaptation of the 80's novel Winter's Tale and it looks as though, thanks to two big names in Hollywood, he will finally have his chance. Vulture reports that Goldsman "called in every favor he had" and eventually scored Will Smith and Russell Crowe — arguably saving the movie and jump-starting production.
The novel, which was written by Mark Helprin, is set in nineteenth-century and present-day Manhattan and tells the tale of a thief who falls in love with a dying girl who lives in one of the houses he robbed. Besides Smith and Crowe's roles, no other casting has been completed. budget was obstacle to production >> Posted 02.02.12 by reelz
Though it was not based on a well-known comic book character and didn't have a built-in audience of fans to draw upon, director Peter Berg's tale of an immortal warrior-turned-superhero (Will Smith) who has lost his way, Hancock, was a super-sized hit in 2008, earning more than $624 million worldwide, making it a bigger blockbuster than any of 2011's superhero movies — Green Lantern, Captain America: The First Avenger and X-Men: First Class and Thor all earned less — and earning it a spot in the Top 10 movies in the genre, alongside the likes of Spider-Man, Iron Man and The Dark Knight.
With numbers like that, you would think that we would have already seen a sequel by now. In fact, a pair of screenwriters was hired to pen Hancock 2 back in August 2009, and Berg confirmed the return of Smith and Charlize Theron one month later (Jason Bateman said that same month that he "cannot imagine" why he would be in the sequel). Since that time? Bupkis. Has the immortal superhero succumbed to development death? According to Berg in a recent interview with CBM, meetings about Hancock 2 were held as recently as last year and now it's "just a question of timing." what did berg say? >> Posted 01.23.12 by BrentJS
Last November, the plot synopsis that accompanied the teaser trailer for The Expendables 2 revealed that two new members (Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan) would be joining the the action movie star super-group featured in the 2010 original. While Hemsworth will be more recognizable to audiences after appearing in 2010's The Last Song and, later this year, in The Hunger Games, Yu last (and only) English-language movie appearance was in 2008's Speed Racer. Luckily for Yu, the Chinese-born actress appears in both of the new photos for the Expendables 2 released by Comingsoon, either walking or crouching behind a car alongside Sylvester Stallone. see the photos >> Posted 01.17.12 by Ryan
Since his performance in 2010's Inception, British actor Tom Hardy has been appearing non-stop in a variety of roles: A MMA fighting sibling in Warrior; a British spy in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; the villainous (and hard to understand) Bane in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises; and yet another role as a spy in the upcoming comedy This Means War. With Hardy already slated to play Max Rockatansky in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road (shooting this April), the actor is also lining up a trilogy of movies to follow.
According to The Wrap, Hardy is attached to star as Al Capone in the gangster trilogy Cicero for Harry Potter director David Yates after being mentioned as a possibility last year. The movies will track Capone's rise and fall from the slums of Brooklyn to being one of the top mobsters in Prohibition-era Chicago. more on Cicero; Hunger Games actress heads into the future >> Posted 01.13.12 by Ryan

Leading up to the release of the first trailer for Men in Black III, plot details have been pretty thin. While it was known that the third installment would see Agent J (Will Smith) go back in time to meet the younger version of Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) — played by Josh Brolin — little else is known. There's good reason for the secrecy: the script was only a third written when it went into production last December. As Jones admitted in February — prior to the sequel resuming production in March after a two-month hiatus allowed for further rewrites — "there are vast pieces of the script yet unwritten."
Tropic Thunder screenwriter Etan Cohen wrote the initial draft, or, shall we say, initial first third of a script, while David Koepp (Jurassic Park), Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 3) and Michael Soccio (TV's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) have all had a turn with the script since, and their collective efforts (and the movie's many delays) don't seem to have hindered the upcoming sequel — from the look of the trailer, at least. watch the trailer >> Posted 12.12.11 by Ryan
In case you haven't checked your calendar lately, 2011 is soooo last year (almost). With the year winding down, it's time to look forward to all the awesome movies coming out in 2012.
Fandango released its 2012 Hot List poll, showing what movies and stars moviegoers are most looking forward to seeing next year. Interestingly, the poll divvies up votes by gender. While The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the most anticipated 2012 blockbuster for men, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is women's No. 1 pick. Guess women are from Venus and men are from Middle-Earth. Here is the results of Fandango's (unscientific) poll:
2012's MOST ANTICIPATED BLOCKBUSTER:
According to Women
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2
The Hunger Games
