In Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, Joel McHale plays Wilbur, a famous spy-hunting television reporter who is married to retired secret agent Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba). The thing is, neither him nor his twin step kids (Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook) know about Marissa’s past. But, when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet, Marissa is called back into action and the kids learn that their boring stepmom was once a top agent. Thrust into action, the world’s most competitive 10-year-olds quickly learn to put their bickering aside and make use of some mind-blowing gadgets to help save the world.
At the film’s press day, Joel McHale talked about being one of the busiest guys in show business, juggling filming Spy Kids 4 with his NBC comedy Community and E!’s The Soup, how playing Jessica Alba’s husband felt like winning a prize in an auction, and how he’s not much of a practical joker. He also gave a little preview of what’s to come for fans of Community, and talked about being directed by Seth MacFarlane for Ted and acting with Steve Martin for The Big Year. Check out what he had to say after the jump:
When Spy Kids 3D: Game Over came out in 2003, series director Robert Rodriguez was on the leading edge of the current 3D movement. With this summer’s release of the fourth movie in the franchise, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World will add a fourth dimension of experience…smell. In what Dimension Films is calling “Aromascope,” moviegoers will be provided a card with 8 different scents that can be sniffed at corresponding times throughout the film. Rodriguez gives his full endorsement to the technology in the official press release, saying:
“Families are going to love the interactivity of this new addition to the movie going experience. And best of all, you won’t have to pay extra for 4D Aromascope, which will be provided to every theater whether it be 2D or 3D.”
Since the spy kids from the first three movies (Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara) are all grown up now, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World will introduce two newcomers, Rowan Blanchard and Mason Cook as Rebecca and Cecil Wilson. Spy Kids also stars Jessica Alba, Joel McHale, Jeremy Piven and Ricky Gervais as the voice of Argonaut, a robotic dog. For more on the pic and another example of filmic “smell tactics,” hit the jump. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World hits theaters on August 19th.
The trailer for Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World has gone online. The film stars Jessica Alba as Marissa Cortez Wilson, a retired spy who returns to the espionage alongside her two step children Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), the new “Spy Kids”, to defeat the evil Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven). Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega, and Daryl Sabara are all set to return and they’ll be joined by series newcomer Joel McHale. Even though I enjoyed the first two Spy Kids films, this one looks like a challenge. Bad guys getting hits with bags of vomit doesn’t exactly have the same charm as a Spy Kid having a watch that does everything but tell time. I know these are movies for kids, but they used to be movies their parents could also enjoy and I’m not really seeing that in this international trailer.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World opens in 3D (I’m not sure why the trailer says “4D” unless all theaters magically got glasses-free 3D screens) on August 19th.
Dimension Films has released the first image of Jeremy Piven as the villainous Timekeeper in Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World. Apparently, when the Timekeeper isn’t busy trying to rule the world, he working at his local theater company’s production of Guys and Dolls.

The first official image from Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World has gone online. The sequel/reboot stars Jessica Alba as former spy Marissa Cortez Wilson. Marissa is called back into action when the villainous Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet. The eponymous espionage children are Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) who get into the spy game as they accompany their step-mom on the adventure. I’m slightly surprised that the new film also features a spy toddler, but I guess if you want to reboot a franchise, you have to get new cast members as young as possible.

Jessica Alba is channeling superhero chic on the set of Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World in Austin. Despite the Texan heat, she looks pretty cool in her badass black pantsuit, a likely crossover from the closets of Catwoman and the Black Widow.
Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, stars of the Spy Kids trilogy, can also be seen with Alba and are clearly no longer kids. In this fourth installment, their characters Carmen and Juni Cortez will instead be arming the new Spy Kids with some incredible gadgets worthy of James Bond’s M.
Jessica Alba is playing Marissa Cortez Wilson, a retired spy who returns to service alongside her two step children, the new Spy Kids, to defeat the evil Timekeeper, played by Jeremy Piven.
