Bad Boys 3 probably really actually not going to happen

Three years ago almost to the day Martin Lawrence announced that Bad Boys 3 was a thing, and that it was actually going to happen for real. Well, it turns out that it wasn't so "for real," and that, as with all other attempts to get th...

Honest Trailers gets brutally honest about Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad, oh, Suicide Squad--what an odd duck of a movie you are. Hype after an initial movie trailer, generally hated and rightfully crapped on upon release. Even the mixed reviews had to admit you were a poorly constructed hodgepodge...

Review: Suicide Squad

Do I need to open this review explaining how important Suicide Squad was to DC and WB? After the poor reception that Batman v. Supermanm received and the less-than-expected box office this movie was what was going to pull the DC f...

First full Suicide Squad trailer has a good time

The first full trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad plays like WB/DC's answer to Guardians of the Galaxy. Still don't like the songs these trailers keep using but it's pretty well edited. The film looks fun, but also kinda looks like a ga...

See Concussion early and free

I'm not sure why, but Will Smith's performance in Concussion is flying a bit under the radar. Yes, he's getting nominations, but no one is considering him a contender and they really should be. Don't believe me? Check out the film for ...

Trailer for Concussion turns NFL evil

By now the NFL's flagrant disregard for their players health has been well documented. I myself am a football fan, which makes it all the more difficult to watch the trailer for Will Smith's upcoming Concussion, the true story of Dr. B...

Suicide Squad trailer photo

The first Suicide Squad trailer looks REALLY AWESOME

I only have two major complaints about this trailer. 1.) It doesn't sound like Harley has that Long Island accent that is such a staple of her character 2.) We have Killer Croc instead of King Shark Aside from that, everything (even the Hot...

 
 
Focus Review photo

Review: Focus

I love a good con movie. From The Sting to Ocean’s Eleven to Catch Me If You Can, the genre is as formulaic as it is entertaining. The secret to its success is a combination of familiar warmth and detached unpredictability: everyone...

Martin Lawrence announces Bad Boys 3

We know. Bad Boys 3 is coming, right? We've been wondering where the hell it is forever, and so has Martin Lawrence, because he doesn't get to start in any other movies. According to him they are officially going to let him star in a ...

There are two scripts for Independence Day 2

Will Smith has been all over the place in terms of Independence Day 2 (officially titled ID Forever Part 1). He wasn't returning and then he was in talks and then he wasn't again. It's all a bit confusing as it's unclear why he wouldn't wan...

Could Will Smith get jiggy wit Independence Day sequel?

Consider this bit of news with the heaviest, heart attack causing salt as this is merely Roland Emmerich mentioning some things. According to an interview with Digital Spy, Roland Emmerich said he and Big Willie Style are "back in talks" fo...

Will Smith not jiggy with Men in Black 4 yet

We may not have covered this when first announced, but Sony is producing a Men in Black 4 because money. It's going to be written by Oren Uziel and would have presumably starred Will Smith since he's agreed to three of them already. Bu...

 
 
After Earth Review photo

Review: After Earth

It hasn't been so easy for M. Night Shyamalan since entering Hollywood. There is, of course, the infamous graph showing his downward spiral to horribleness via Rotten Tomato ratings. If the trend in that graph continued, then After Ear...

Will Smith to star and produce The Wild Bunch remake

After turning down Django Unchained because he felt his character wouldn't be the hero, Will Smith now sets his eyes on another violent Western. This time it's a remake of The Wild Bunch, a film about a group of men who rob a railroad ...

See After Earth early and free

Probably the biggest question of the summer season is m. Night Shyamalan's After Earth. The director has been on the skids since his debut film, and if The Last Airbender is any indication he can't even handle other people's screenplays. Bu...

Jamie Foxx in talks for Benjamin Stacks in Annie reboot

Now that Will Smith and Jay Z's Annie hip-hopera reboot (I will never stop calling it that, ever) is no longer a vehicle for Willow Smith's hair whipping and instead will star the impressively talented Quvenzhané Wallis, its tim...

 
 
F**K YEAH photo

F**K YEAH WILL SMITH AGREES WITH ME

A few weeks after Django Unchained released, I wrote an analysis piece explaining why Django wasn't the hero of DU as the greater thematic resonance of the film focused on Dr. King Schultz. In speaking with EW recently, Will Smith explained...

Trailer: After Earth

Part of me wants to make fun of this trailer because of Will and Jaden Smith's nonsensical indiscriminate accents, weird looking CG, and that it's an M. Night Shawarma flick, but for some reason, most of me is intrigued by After Earth. Thi...

New poster for M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth

If there's anyone out there who's actually giving this guy another shot, here's a new poster for M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi feature After Earth, starring Will and Jaden Smith as a father and son who crash to Earth and must survive on ...

Trailer: After Earth

I don't even know where to start with a movie directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The fact that he's still even making movies is kind of mind boggling. Could this be his redemption? Eh, probably not. The trailer seems interesting enough, but I...

Independence Day not being re-released in 3D after all

With sequels reportedly on the way, Fox has surprisingly opted to shelve a 3D re-release of 1996 alien invasion blockbuster Independence Day, which had been set for release on July 3rd 2013. No word has been given on any reason for the canc...

Independence Day is getting sequels and they have names

Apparently next Independence Day, we'll be getting a 3D version of the classic Will Smith sci-fi masterpiece/celebration of our nation vehicle Independence Day, something that director Roland Emmerich is not a fan off. Also, the sequels (wh...

Will Smith starring as Cain the vampire slayer

Leave it to Hollywood to fill the void of originality with completely off the wall, bats**t craziness. Will Smith is apparently going to star in a film that retells the Biblical story of Cain and Abel...except with vampires. It's titled The...

Will Smith's 'Annie' hip-hopera gets '27 Dresses' writer

Review: Men in Black III

The actual review for Men in Black III follows, but I just wanted to get something off my chest. I am severely disappointed that Will Smith did not make a new rap song for this movie. While the Pitbull single is a catchy remix with some adm...

New MIB3 poster elicits euphoric giggling

While the Men in Black franchise is fairly whimsical in its own right, I am unsure of whether this poster is having its intended effect on me, as I cannot look at it without tittering like a girl. Featuring Will Smith riding on what is poss...
