So there is a fourth Spy Kids movie, which was shot in 3D but also features a ’4D’ element Robert Rodriguez and Dimension are calling ‘AromaScope,’ and I’m not sure what else to say about it. This is a movie for kids, pure and simple, with Jessica Alba playing either a secret agent whose emotional response to the world around her has been damaged by some severe interrogation, or a suburban mom who can’t go six hours without a valium. Or perhaps both. There’s a new trailer that flogs the AromaScope angle and you can see, but not smell it after the break.

Depending on what you want out of Robert Rodriguez, this first trailer for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World may either instill dismay (“he made this instead of a ‘real’ movie?”) or happiness (“if he wants to make this, then let someone else do Deadpool“). This looks like a Canadian promo for the film — check the Alliance logo where the Weinstein-related one should be — but I imagine it is very similar to the US trailer we’re likely to see. Check it out below. Read More »
We’ve seen a teaser and an international trailer for Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet the Parents, and now there is a full theatrical trailer. What’s the difference? In addition to showing more plot and (depending on your point of view) jokes, this trailer has a few shots of Dustin Hoffman, whose mart was shot after the teaser debuted. Read More »
Director Robert Rodriguez is hard at work filming Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World and photos of three of his stars have leaked online. They show Jessica Alba, decidedly clothed like in her last Rodriguez film, along with the original Spy Kids Carmen and Juni Cortez, played by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. They’re not kids anymore, though, so in the latest film – due August 19 – they’ll pass the reigns to Marissa’s (Alba) kids Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) in order to battle the Timekeeper, played by Jeremy Piven. Check out the photos after the break along with more info on the film. Read More »
Anyone clamoring for another wild 3D romp from the mind of Robert Rodriguez is in luck. Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World is now shooting in Austin, Texas in anticipation of a August 19, 2011 release date. Rodriguez is not only directing from his own screenplay but will also serve as producer, director of photography, editor and visual effects supervisor. The film stars Jessica Alba as a retired secret agent, married to Joel McHale, who is called back into action when the the villainous Timekeeper (played by Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the world. It’ll also feature the return of Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo and the original Spy Kids Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, though they aren’t the stars.

We’re sorry to report that side boob you found so titillating was nothing more than a bunch of zeros and ones. Jessica Alba was not, in fact, naked in the shower in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete. According to a recent report, Alba was actually wearing tight white underwear on the set, which was then digitally altered to make the perennial sex symbol appear nude. And while it’s not surprising that computer graphics have the ability to remove clothing, it is surprising that filmmakers would be willing to do it. And not for all the reasons you think, sicko. Hit the jump to read more (warning: possible NSFW image). Read More »
Briefly: Forget about the idea of Robert Rodriguez directing Deadpool — between Ryan Reynolds’ schedule and the fact that Rodriguez has Spy Kids 4 on the docket, things aren’t likely to line up for now. (And, after Machete, I’m glad.) So expect to hear a lot of casting news about Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in the coming weeks. We’ve already had Jessica Alba join, and now Community‘s Joel McHale is on board, as “a spy-hunting reporter married to Alba’s character, the stepmother to his kids.”
Alba plays a reactivated former spy, and there will be two new Spy Kids, with the originals (Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega) expected to appear in at least a cameo. Previous reports have the new kids pegged as Rebecca and Cecil. “Rebecca’s not exactly supportive of her father’s new partner, and utilizes her ingenious skills as a prankster to thwart her stepmother every step of the way. Cecil’s a little less hard on Jessica, frequently asking his sis to cut her a break. Ultimately, Jessica and Rebecca have to put their differences aside when they’re both called up for active-duty.” [Variety]
