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
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
Initially plagued by delays and the need for multiple re-writes — Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) wrote the initial script, with David Koepp (Jurassic Park), Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 3) and Michael Soccio (TV's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) providing successive drafts — director Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III (MIB3) managed to wrap principal photography only one month later than initially planned. However, it's now going on six months since the movie entered post-production and MIB3 has virtually dropped off of the entertainment news radar. In fact, until a set of teaser posters showed up in theaters over the weekend, we pretty much forgot that the movie was still in the pipeline.
The cryptic new posters have yet to be released online, but thankfully Collider managed to snap a picture of the poster featuring Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), and FirstShowing shot the poster featuring Agent J (Will Smith) and posted them online. Since the photos of the posters were shot in theater lobbies, they suffer a bit in quality, but after scrutinizing them we have discovered that hidden amidst the "MIB3" logos that make up the images is the URL for a new viral marketing campaign for the movie.

It's a good week to be a Captain America fan.
Earlier this week, more than two dozen still images and set photos from Marvel studios' Captain America: The First Avenger were released just days after 20 more photos from the movie debuted. Now, with the movie just a week away from release, Hitfix has released a brand new poster for the movie, and four preview clips are online offering new footage of the comic book movie adaptation.
The poster gives fans a good look at Chris Evans in his Captain America costume, with the looming Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) behind him. By Cap's shoulder is his love interest, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), and to his other side is his Colonel Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones), who is at first skeptical of Steve Rogers entering the Super Soldier program. To Cap's side is his sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as well as the members of Cap's "Howling Commandos" — Timothy "Dum Dum" Dugan (Neal McDonough), Gabriel Jones (Derek Luke) and Montgomery Farnsworth (J.J. Field) on the right, and Jim Morita (Kenneth Choi) and Jacques Dernier (Bruno Ricci) on the left. See a high-res version here. watch the clips >> Posted 07.15.11 by Ryan
Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell is featured in the latest issue of Esquire magazine, offering American audiences a chance to meet the actress behind the image on their soda can and other Captain America-sponsored merchandise.
Prior to her role in First Avenger, Atwell's most recognizable role outside of her native Britain was a supporting role in AMC's 2009 mini-series The Prisoner. While talking to Esquire, Atwell revealed that she won her First Avenger role without an audition, and, perhaps, after a few drinks with director Joe Johnston.

When I met with the director of Captain America, I hadn't seen the script, and I had to go meet him, and we spoke for like an hour. With a lot of those big films, they'll do that instead of an audition — and I prefer them, because I love a chat. I've found the messier the meeting gets, the more successful. You vomit on someone's shirt, it's probably going to work in your favor. Because you shared something: an intimate moment of drunken behavior.
Steven Spielberg's look at the life of the 16th president will have more than a handful of recognizable faces when it opens next year.
Among the actors who've signed on for Lincoln are Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Hal Holbrook (Water for Elephants), James Spader (Stargate), John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), Tim Blake Nelson (The Incredible Hulk), Bruce McGill (Law Abiding Citizen), and Joseph Cross (Milk).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones will portray Thaddeus Stevens, a Pennsylvania congressman who supports abolishing slavery and is crucial in the government's funding of the Civil War. Gordon-Levitt will play Lincoln's oldest son, Robert Todd, the only one of the president's four children to live past his teenage years. The other roles were not specified.

While Tommy Lee Jones often appears in indie dramas such as the recently released HBO movie The Sunset Limited, he also is no stranger to big-budget, comic book adaptations such as the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger and the sequel Men in Black. Jones has already completed his work as Colonel Chester Phillips in Captain America, but recently told Vulture that he has "probably about a week to go" on Men in Black III and is having a good time in the process.

Men in Black is a hell of a lot of fun. I can’t think of any better company than Will Smith or [director] Barry Sonnenfeld. It’s just a pure joy all day, every day.
We recently got a few sneak peeks at Marvel Studios' Captain America: The First Avenger thanks to the latest issue of Empire magazine. Now, Russian entertainment site SpiderMedia.ru has posted online the full set of images from Empire, which includes the first high-quality shots of Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips and Hugo Weaving as Johann Schmidt, aka the Red Skull.
The site also has a larger, high-quality version of the first image of Sebastian Stan as James "Bucky" Barnes that accompanied a recent article about the movie that ran in the online edition of the L.A. Times, and a few images from the French magazine Première, including a photo of some cool looking Hydra stormtroopers. more about Captain America: The First Avenger >> Posted 02.06.11 by BrentJS

The real world moves one step closer to a late-'90s action flick as Wesley Snipes is ordered by the U.S. Marshal's office to report to a Pennsylvania pen by December 9 for his failing to pay his taxes. Tommy Lee Jones, get ready.
Dwayne Johnson may want to reconsider his decision to drop "The Rock," after Faster bombed so badly it's causing heads to roll at CBS Films. Faster is the third box office disaster in a row for the studio, preceded by Extraordinary Measures and The Back-Up Plan.
It's Just Lunch! Recently split Tony Parker and Eva Longoria met for a bite yesterday, presumably to decide who gets to keep what now that both have filed for divorce. We suspect things went Longoria's way as last night Parker went 1-6 with just 2 points as his San Antonio Spurs were upset by the Los Angeles Clippers.
Stripping down for a steamy sex scene isn't the only thing Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis had to do for art. Much like real ballerinas, both were on restricted diets that left them "emaciated and tired" for months. Posted 12.02.10 by reelz
The first trailer has been released for director Brad Furman's The Lincoln Lawyer, which is not about Abraham Lincoln's early days before becoming President of the United States, but instead is an adaptation of Michael Connelly's book about a smooth-talking defense attorney who conducts his business from a Lincoln Town Car and lands the case of his career defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder. Tommy Lee Jones was originally set to be director and star in the movie, with Matthew McConaughey as the lawyer and Jones as the playboy (as amazing as that sounds), but left over "creative differences" with the John Romano-scripted movie. Ryan Phillippe stepped into the role of the playboy, while Furman (The Take) took over the directing duties. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.21.10 by Ryan
