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.

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]
Despite the fact that the two kids, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, who starred in the first three films aren’t even close to being kids at this point, Robert Rodriguez is preparing to shoot a fourth Spy Kids movie.
He’s doing so with new kids, but for the time being we don’t know who those actors will be. But Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World has just lined up its first major actor: Jessica Alba will star in the film as a reactivated former spy. Read More »

A couple months back, we got a sneak preview of Robert Rodriguez’s Machete thanks to an a special “illegal” movie trailer released online for Cinco De Mayo. The real movie trailer is attached to the Rober Rodriguez-produced Predators, which hits theaters this weekend. But you don’t have to head to your local multiplex to see the new trailer, as it is now online and embedded after the jump.
I actually prefer the original Grindhouse faux trailer to the real full length trailer. Which ius strange since the real trailer features a bunch of big stars and a much bigger budget (estimated at $20 million). I think it might be that I just prefer the retro scratch-filled version. That said, the movie still looks like a bad-ass b-movie with an interesting cast.Watch the trailer now below.

Not much to say here — Little Fockers is the third film in the unlikely series spawned by Meet the Parents. The upside is that, based on this trailer, the movie seems to be slightly less about the children of Ben Stiller‘s character than you might guess. The downside is that, based on this trailer, the movie looks like another couple hours of watching Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro make antagonistic eyes at one another. If that’s your thing, then this will look like pure gold. Read More »
If you haven’t already seen the UK trailer for Michael Winterbottom‘s The Killer Inside Me, go watch that now. Then come back here. Because IFC has released a domestic trailer and poster for the film, which adapts Jim Thompson‘s daylight noir novel of the same name, but this new trailer isn’t nearly as effective as the UK version.
