Will Smith Talks MEN IN BLACK 3, M. Night Shyamalan’s AFTER EARTH, His Love of STAR WARS and Future Projects

by     Posted 2 years, 212 days ago


Opening this weekend is the third film in the Men in Black franchise.  Barry Sonnenfeld returns as director and the story finds Will Smith’s Agent J travelling back in time to save Tommy Lee Jones’ Agent K.  In addition to Bill Hader as Andy Warhol, Josh Brolin plays a younger version of Jones’ character and does an incredible job.  You’ll absolutely think you’re watching Jones as a young man.  Men in Black 3 also stars Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, and Emma Thompson.  In addition, make-up effects artist Rick Baker returns to the franchise and you can see some of his creature work here.  For more on the film, here’s all our previous coverage.

Last week I got to speak with most of the cast and every day this week I’ll be posting a new interview.  Yesterday was Tommy Lee Jones and today I’ve got Will Smith.  During the interview we talked about when he knew they could make another Men in Black, the impact Star Wars had on him as a kid, how many takes he likes to do, and more.  In addition, we talked about future projects like M. Night Shyamalan‘s After Earth, and I tried to get updates on Independence Day 2, Bad Boys 3, I Am Legend 2 and Hancock 2.   Hit the jump to watch.

If you loved “Office Space” and “Idiocracy”, you must be beyond excited for this Friday, as that’s the day writer-director Mike Judge’s third feature “Extract” arrives in theaters! So to help promote the film, I recently participated in a roundtable interview with Jason Bateman and he talked about making the film, what he has coming up, and a lot more.

In the film, Jason plays the owner of an Extract factory and a freak workplace accident sets in motion a series of disasters that put his business and personal life in jeopardy. Trust me, the film is very funny and you should definitely check it out this weekend. Read what he had to say after the jump. It’s a great interview.

The other day I got to participate in a roundtable interview with Jason Bateman for his new movie “Extract”. While I’ll have a complete transcript next week, I wanted to post some highlights today. After all, who doesn’t want to hear the latest update on the “Arrested Development” movie? Also, we got him to talk about his work in the just wrapped Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie “Paul”, his romantic comedy “The Baster”, and would he like to make a “Hancock” sequel.

HANCOCK Sequel Gets Behind Two Writers from THE SHIELD

by     Posted 5 years, 119 days ago


After making over $225 million at the US box office and another $396 million overseas, the Will Smith superhero flick “Hancock” was going to get a sequel.  That wasn’t even a question.  Instead, the question was: where will the sequel find John Hancock: reluctant crusader?  For the time being plot details for director Peter Berg’s “Hancock 2″ are still unknown, but at least we now know who will be crafting the action this time around – and the news is good if you are a fan of FX’s late, great, cop drama “The Shield”.  Details after the jump.
