James Bobin Teases “Awesome” Script For Mib 23, Shooting To Commence Later This Year

25 May 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

First outed during Sony’s calamitous hacking scandal of 2014, that Men in Black/Jump Street movie is on the verge of becoming a reality, having appointed director James Bobin at the helm and nabbed an official title in Mib 23.

Currently doing the press rounds for Alice Through the Looking Glass, Bobin was quizzed about the franchise crossover while speaking with Collider. Considering that Mib 23 is without a firm release date, we’ve only caught fleeting teases of what to expect from Sony’s event film up until now, but Bobin did hint that Jenko and Schmidt – the two sons of bitches that they are – could be going to the Men in Black headquarters before the year’s end.

Bobin began by dancing around specifics, noting that Mib 23 stands as the “working title” for the time being, before addressing the critics that have called the core concept into question. »

[Cannes Review] Hell or High Water

16 May 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily from the Coen brothers and Cormac McCarthy, but it does so very well, thanks largely to a terrific script from Taylor Sheridan, the red-hot actor-turned-screenwriter who broke onto the scene last year with Sicario. It might usher in a new chapter of the Cambridge-born director’s career having come back strong in 2013 directing an inspired Jack O’Connell in Starred Up. Indeed, this relocation to the States should go some way to explaining an enjoyably plastic impression of West Texas, where T-bone steaks are served only medium rare and people say things like, “Sideways don’t wanna meet me. Unless it wants to find itself at the short end of a long street. »

‘Criminal’ Is An Underrated Piece Of Cinema – Subhash K Jha

14 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Criminal (in Hindi)

Starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Gal Gadot

Directed by Ariel Vromen

Having read the vicious reviews, Criminal, which I braved in Hindi, turned out to be as misunderstood and misinterpreted as The Jungle Book would be if it was taken literally to be a jungle fable (did someone just say, it is?).

There is a lot more to Criminal than the outrageously absurd premise of a ruthless criminal Jericho (Costner, knock-out in his malevolent makeover) whose brain is implanted with a slain CIA agent’s memory to get vital earth-saving information on a terrorist before catastrophe strikes civilization.

Catastrophe struck this film in angry welters with critics dubbing Criminal as one of the worst films in recent times. In brief, a ‘criminal’ waste of time and energy, the critics chorused.

In actuality Criminal has a lot going for itself. The action sequences on the »

Mib 23: How the most unlikely movie mash-up came to be

11 May 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the Jump Street and Men in Black crossover Mib 23

Remember the big Sony leak at the end of 2014? The one that made everyone panic about that really rather rubbish North Korea-baiting Rogen/Franco comedy? Well aside from the news that Spider-Man might end up coming back to the McU (and arguably the positive reaction to that helped Spidey end up in Captain America: Civil War), one of the most surprising revelations was that Sony was considering crossing over its hugely successful Jump Street franchise with none other than the Men in Black. Cue a collective mass ‘Wtf???’ from almost everybody, and surely a “that’ll never happen!”. Get some of that humble pie folks because not only did Sony announce the crossover was on, but in March named James Bobin–director of The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted and the upcoming sequel nobody wanted, Alice: Through the »

Action Comedy Villa Capri Adds Morgan Freeman And Tommy Lee Jones

11 May 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood veterans Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones are primed for a reunion with Villa Capri, the action comedy in the works at Sierra/Affinity, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Not since 2003’s Hollywood Homicide have the Oscar-winning duo shared the screen, but that all changes with this bankable FBI romp. Penned by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump), Villa Capri revolves around an ex-fbi agent and ex-mob boss, two sworn enemies from the get-go, who in a fit of panic are forced to place old rivalries on the back-burner after they’re targeted by the mob while shooting a round of golf.

THR didn’t disclose which roles Freeman and Jones are linked to, but the latter’s gruff, taciturn demeanour ought to make for some rip-roaring entertainment opposite Freeman. Citing Midnight Run as inspiration, Ron Shelton is also attached to helm Villa Capri, as Sierra »

James Bobin confirms that he will direct Mib 23

10 May 2016 4:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March it was reported that James Bobin (The Muppets) was in talks to helm Sony Pictures’ Men in Black / Jump Street crossover, and now the filmmaker has confirmed that he’ll be directing the project, which is going by the title of Mib 23.

“Yes, it’s very early stages, obviously,” Bobin tells Coming Soon during a press interview for his new film Alice Though the Looking Glass. “I’ve always loved the Men in Black world. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street are just so funny. Those guys and their world makes me laugh every time I think about it. That’s always a good sign for a film.”

Plot details for Mib 23 are being kept under wraps, but it’s thought that Sony will be using it to relaunch the Men in Black franchise with a younger cast, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones unlikely to return. »

Watch: New Featurette on Matt Damon Returning for 'Jason Bourne'

9 May 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's a reason for the CIA to want to bring him back... he is called the one-hundred-million-dollar weapon." Universal has released a new featurette for Jason Bourne, profiling the return of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne for his fourth movie. Tommy Lee Jones also stars, along with Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed and Ato Essandoh. This whole featurette is just a bit cheesy, and features more footage from the trailer than any actual behind-the-scenes footage, along with some interview clips - but it doesn't have that much. I'm very excited to see this movie, I think it might be very cool, just not impressed by this little bit of marketing. I want to see some actual behind-the-scenes footage for this one. Here's the new making of featurette for Paul Greengrass & Matt Damon's Jason Bourne, from YouTube: You can watch the first official trailer for Jason Bourne here, »
