‘Spy Kids 4′ Releases Boner-Killing Jessica Alba Still

Wednesday, April 20 by

You asked for more Spy Kids movies, and you’re getting more Spy Kids movies. Wait, you say you didn’t ask for more Spy Kids movies? Well, it’s too late now. Director Robert Rodriguez is getting ready to unveil a new one August 19th. You should have objected awhile ago. They’re currently releasing stills for the movie, like the one of Jessica Alba and a baby below. Oh man, I wish that baby would get out of the shot. And Jessica Alba‘s clothes. They’re spoiling an otherwise nice-to-look-at thing.

Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World stars Alba, Joel McHale and Jeremy Piven, all of whom are collecting nice paychecks, I’m sure. Here’s a synopsis:

On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case – Marissa‚Äôs a retired secret agent.

These problems are very relatable to me, a single mom, but with a layer of fantasy my kids will enjoy I am intrigued.

Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.

Oh good. For a minute there, I was worried the old Spy Kids were completely out of the picture. Glad there’s some continuity there, but that brings us to the main question: will Sharkboy and Lavagirl make an appearance? I’m gonna hold my breath until I find out. Or, y’know… I won’t do that.
