First Look at Chris Hemsworth Shooting The New Men In Black Film

Thanks to some set photos that have surfaced, we have our first look at Chris Hemsworth in the upcoming new Men in Black film. He will be playing an Mib agent in the film along with Tessa Thompson, who will be his partner.

They will be joined by Liam Neeson as the head of the U.K. branch of the Mib agency, Kumail Nanjiani as an alien side-kick character, and then there's Rafe Spall (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), but we don't know who he's playing. We also don't have any story details, but I hope the movie turns out good!

Men in Black is being directed by F. Gary Gray (Fate of the Furious) and the script was penned by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The film is currently expected to be released on June 14, 2019.

First Look at Chris Hemsworth as Men in Black Spin-Off Begins Shooting

First Look at Chris Hemsworth as Men in Black Spin-Off Begins Shooting
Chris Hemsworth has suited up and gone to work as an alien busting special agent this week. The Men in Black spin-off has officially started shooting. The first set images have leaked, and they show the Thor star in his signature Mib black tie and sunglasses. He looks ready to fight extraterrestrial forces with a smile.

Chris Hemsworth's time as Thor in the Marvel universe may be coming to an end with next summer's Avengers 4. So he's locked down his next big franchise, taking the lead in what should be Men in Black 4, but is being called a spin-off by Sony. It will be a reboot of the series, but won't erase what has come before it, like Hemsworth's Ghostbusters remake unwisely did.

In Men in Black, Chris Hemsworth will be reuniting with his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson, who is playing his partner. The two are the lead agents of the London Mib branch,

Chris Hemsworth Trades McU For Mib In First Men In Black Set Photos

Here come the Men in Black, galaxy defenders…

Production has officially commenced for Sony’s upcoming reboot and to prove it, Just Jared (h/t Cbm) has relayed the first set pics of a sharp-suited Chris Hemsworth, who’s clearly traded the McU for the Mib.

The Avengers: Infinity War actor was pictured with his black suit and black Ray Bans on, and while he’ll inevitably share the screen with a host of A-list talent, Hemsworth was the only one needed for this particular sequence, which appears to involve some sort of investigation into a local case.

Headed up by director F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious), we know Men in Black features a script from Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the duo best known for their work on Iron Man. Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani and Rafe Spall of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom are among the ensemble cast,

Luke Cage Star Asks Josh Brolin To Promise Thanos Won’t Kill His Character

Marvel fans are always wishing for the movies of the McU to crossover with the TV shows more often. Recently, many hoped the universe-shattering events of Avengers: Infinity War would have repercussions on the small screen, too, but all we got was a brief reference in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So where’s our proper crossover? And what would happen if, say, Luke Cage encountered Thanos?

Well, that last one we can actually answer thanks to the Hero of Harlem himself, Mike Colter, and it didn’t go down quite how you’d think it would. The Luke Cage star took to Twitter to reveal what happened when he acted alongside Josh Brolin, who plays the Mad Titan, back in 2012’s Men In Black 3.

As you can see below, Colter shared a shot which hilariously shows the duo holding hands. Referencing their McU connection, he followed

Liam Neeson Traded His Broadway Seat So He Wouldn't Block Views

Liam Neeson Traded His Broadway Seat So He Wouldn't Block Views
Actor Liam Neeson attended the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Wednesday evening to watch a performance of The Iceman Cometh, which stars Denzel Washington. Being a famous actor, Neeson was given excellent seats to catch the show, but realized that his 6-foot-4 tall body may have obstructed the view of people sitting behind him. So, he decided to get up and switch seats with a couple who were sitting further back. Neeson went from the front of the house back into the cheap seats so that others could enjoy Denzel Washington on Broadway.

The Irish actor isn't known as the most favorite dad in Ireland for no reason. In a recent poll, Liam Neeson took number one as "Favorite Dad," beating out former President Barack Obama, Irish President Michael D Higgins, rugby star Johnny Sexton, and The Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy.

Canon Of Film: ‘Big’

In this edition of Canon Of Film, we take honor the release of ‘Ocean’s 8‘ by taking a look back at one of Gary Ross’ early screenwriting achievements in ‘Big‘. For the story behind the genesis of the Canon, you can click here.

Big (1988)

Director: Penny Marshall

Screenplay: Gary Ross & Anne Spielberg

Having seen ‘Big‘ so often, that the magic of it has worn thin on me, I notice on my latest viewing something I hadn’t thought of before, in that now that Josh has returned to being a normal 13-year old, what will happen to him. Is he a normal 13-year old anymore, after spending six weeks as an adult working in the corporate market, having sex with women, earning a paycheck, going on dates, exactly how will his life change after this experience? It’s probably not much of a point that people will observe watching the film,
