Men in Black Honest Trailer

This summer brings the Men in Black back to the big screen on a global scale with Men in Black International. But after looking back at the original three movies in the franchise with the Men in Black Honest Trailer, we’re not entirely sure we need a retread, especially if it doesn’t include a signature Will Smith riff lecturing people after neuralizing them.

None of these updates are all that major, but there are a lot of them so let’s get right to it. After the jump:

  • Channing Tatum won’t direct Magic Mike 2 just yet
  • Stephen King‘s The Shining (book) sequel gets dated
  • Jude Law is totally up for more Sherlock Holmes
  • Karen Allen reiterates Indy 5 is up to George Lucas
  • Seth MacFarlane is “thinking about” a sequel to Ted
  • Men in Black 3 and the trilogy hit Blu-ray / DVD this fall
  • Rosario Dawson says Sin City 2 will shoot in November

Briefly: Just in cast you can’t wait for the 120-minute showing of footage from The Amazing Spider-Man that will open on July 3, this Friday May 25 there will be a chance to see a new six-minute look at the film. The official Facebook page for Marc Webb‘s film announced today “See an exclusive 6-minute sneak peek of The Amazing Spider-Man when you experience Men In Black in IMAX 3D starting Thursday at Midnight!”

Will this be substantially different from the four-minute preview that hit the airwaves not long ago? That’s a question we can’t answer at this point. Is Men in Black III worth checking out in order to see six new minutes of Spider-Man? That depends on your interest in the aging franchise; I’m basically with Germain when it come to evaluating the movie. (If you like Michael Stuhlbarg from A Serious Man and Boardwalk Empire, then it might be a bit more worth it.) Since this six-minute clip seems designed to take advantage of IMAX and 3D, we might not get it online, but if the footage does show up we’ll pass it along as soon as possible.

As we head toward the Oscars and therefore the end of awards season, it’s time to take a better look at some of the films we’re anticipating from 2012. We have for you today an eclectic mix of photos from some of the entertainments we’re most looking forward to, from Gary Ross‘ deadly serious YA adaptation The Hunger Games to Judd Apatow‘s almost-middle-age comedy This is Forty and everything in between. Check out photos for those films plus The Gangster Squad, Men in Black III, and Frankenweenie after the jump.

Everything gets a sequel now: big tentpole event films, popular TV shows, and low-rent horror films. Especially low-rent horror films. After the break you’ll find:

  • The latest minor rumblings on J.J. Abrams’ sequel to Star Trek,
  • Word on a new version, a ‘requel’ if you will, of Killer Klowns From Outer Space,
  • Assurance that Piranha 3DD isn’t getting dumped on video in the US,
  • Turtle’s comments about an Entourage movie,
  • and the first image of Jemaine Clement in Men in Black III.

Despite the fact that the word “trailer” is used four times in the title of the post, we don’t have any actual trailers for you here — just some quick bits of information about trailers. That’s almost as good, right? No? Well, too bad. After the jump:

  • The trailer for Men in Black III debuts Monday
  • The Prometheus trailer gets a 14A rating — the Canadian equivalent to a hard PG-13
  • The first Rock of Ages trailer will debut with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

You could probably make a pretty fun movie by cutting together footage from all the different films that feature actors playing Andy Warhol — his own I’m Not There, as it might become. If you wait a few months you’d be able to add Bill Hader‘s performance, which looks, physically at least, to be pretty spot-on. This is from Men in Black III, the troubled Barry Sonnenfeld sequel starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin. There has been no small amount of bad press about the film, much of it centered around the fact that no one could figure out what the movie is supposed to be, even after a big chunk had already been shot. But hey, at least Bill Hader looks pretty good as Warhol. Don’t expect his appearance in the film to add up to much more than an extended cameo, but I’ll take it.

After the break, Jean Reno makes I, Alex Cross look good, and Alec Baldwin may not sing for Rock of Ages after all.

Is Men in Black III a total oddity in the studio world or merely the next step in the lineage of films like the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels and Iron Man, which famously went into production without solid scripts in place? Men in Black III started production last November, but shooting started with only part of the script fully in place. A hiatus was built into the production, officially to make the most of New York tax incentives and weather conditions, but in reality more than half the script was still not finalized.

Things were meant to get back into gear last month, after Jeff Nathanson spent the hiatus getting the rest of the script knocked out. Then that hiatus was extended until the end of March and David Koepp was brought in to deal with the lingering script issues. Now the clock is ticking and Sony is in the very unusual position of having the first act of an unfinished script in the can. A new feature looks into the long, weird development of Men in Black III and suggests that conflicting personalities are turning an ungainly project into something that teeters on the brink of real failure.

David Koepp Now Rewriting ‘Men in Black III’

The production schedule for Men in Black III has been a strange thing. A lot of footage was shot for the film last year, then a built-in production break kicked in at Christmas. Originally Sony was going to get the movie back into gear last month, but creative problems pushed the new resume date back to March 28. Jeff Nathanson was hammering out issues with the script along with director Barry Sonnenfeld and others. Now David Koepp (Spider-Man, War of the Worlds, Indy IV) has been brought in to finish the job. Read More »

Alice Eve Cast in ‘Men in Black III’

Men in Black III has been delayed once again, with the planned second half of the shoot bumped back at least a month to the end of March. (The film’s shoot was split into two halves, with the first half wrapping around Christmas, and script work delaying the second.)

While the production waits for Jeff Nathanson, Barry Sonnenfeld and the producers to work out whatever script issues are causing problems, a new cast member has been added. Alice Eve is now onboard, and she’ll play a young… well, let’s keep that after the break for the benefit of those who don’t want to know many details about the film. Read More »
