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...

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...

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 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...

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

When we last reported on rumors for Will Smith and Jay Z's Annie reboot, all we knew back then was that it was primarily being used as a vehicle for Smith's impressively talented daughter, Willow (Does Smith even in...

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...

Men In Black 3 concludes trilogy *sound of snoring*

Director Barry Sonnenfeld has claimed his upcoming Men In Black III will conclude the trilogy of movies that blatantly was never intended to be a trilogy until some studio head decided he wanted to wring every last dime from a largely forgo...

Will Smith out, Pitbull in for Men in Black 3 theme

So, Will Smith, star of the Men in Black franchise will not be contributing the theme song this time 'round. Instead, it will go to Pitbull. This has broken my heart. I've said on numerous occasions that the part I was most excited abo...

There are more I Am Legend movies coming for some reason

I really loved the first half of I Am Legend. Will Smith gave a command performance as the lonely last man in Manhattan, the visuals of a city overgrown with vegetation were awesome, and there was just enough intelligence to make me think t...

Will Smith and Russell Crowe join Winter's Tale

Akiva Goldsman has long struggled to secure financing for his directorial debut, Winter's Tale, which is surprising considering it is a magic-themed gangster story (adapted from a 1983 novel by Mark Helprin) from the man who wrote Batman &a...

First Look: Jemaine Clement in Men in Black 3

Man, I never get tired of making fun of this movie. It's like the gift that just keeps on giving. Anyway, here's an interesting still of Jemaine Clement who actually signed on to be in this movie. He's some kind of Easy Rider fan, and thoug...

Men in Black 3 poster teases with Men in Black 3?

So, there's this little indie flick called Men in Black 3 coming out next year. You may have heard of it. It's supposed to be a sequel to Men in Black II, but to be honest, I only recall seeing the first Men in Black. I wonder... Do they ma...

Attack of the clone movie

It would seem there is a trend developing to make movies based on "how to" books, but I'm fairly certain these books are of a comedic nature. I wouldn't know because I don't read books, because there are words in them. Like, thousands of wo...

New images from Men In Black III surface

I'd like to be the jaded cyncial film buff here, but I'm actually quite excited for the new Men in Black. I always thought the franchise had more to offer than the second film allowed and think the extension of the series could be a very go...

The Smith boys suffer lapse in judgement with Shyamalan

Considering how badly his last three movies bombed, critically and financially, I'm utterly shocked that movie studios are still giving M. Night Shyamalan money to make crappy movies. Despite an overwhelming abundance of evidence against le...

Who's writing Men in Black 3?

Men in Black 3 has been facing problems for a while now. Maybe it's just me, but starting production without a finished script that meets Will Smith's approval doesn't seem like the best thing for a movie's quality. The screenplay was origi...
