As if forcing people to watch Men In Black III wasn’t punishment enough, Will Smith is making headlines for slapping a Ukrainian reporter at the sequel’s Moscow premiere. In all fairness, the reporter was getting a little fresh by trying to put his mouth on Will’s mouth. Was Will in the wrong here? Ask yourself how you would have reacted. I mean, the dude didn’t even try to set the mood first. It’s as if romance is simply dead.

Personally, I think the reporter got off easy after attempting to be a creep in public. It’s only cute when Sacha Baron Cohen does it. Here are six other instances of slap-happy celebrities.

Burt Reynolds

Of course, there are worse crimes than on-the-mouth kissing. For instance, not being familiar with the master works of Burt Reynolds. Reynolds slapped a CBS reporter on the red carpet of The Longest Yard remake when he revealed he hadn’t seen Burt’s 1974 original. Burt insists that he was just joking around, because these guys are such great pals and all. Good times Burt! I wonder how often he and Bert Convy slapped one another around for laughs.

Dr. D


Pro Wrestler Punches Reporter – Watch More Funny Videos

It’s a hard lesson to learn but apparently wrestling is not fake. Lesson learned.

Bjork

Bjork must really believe that any press is good press. For example, remember when she went absolutely house on a reporter in a Thailand airport? It’s a pretty confusing attack. Bjork is walking through the airport. The reporter says “Welcome to Bangkok.” Bitch goes off.

Not really sure how that warrants such a strong response. Maybe Bjork thought she was going to get punched in the dick? It’s always the oh-so-quiet ones you need to watch out for.

Steve Carell

Wow. Hollywood “Nice Guy” really shows his true colors here.

Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell was accused of attacking and slapping a photographer while on vacation in Italy. Campbell’s reps have denied the attack occurred but, if true, it wouldn’t be her first rodeo. Between 1998 and 2008, Campbell has been accused of attacking people ten times. That includes personal assistants, housekeepers, maids, an actress, her drug therapist, and even cops. Chick is like the Jason Vorhees of the modeling world.

Omar Sharif

Acting legend Omar Sharif laid the smackdown on a female fan eager to take a picture with him. It happened on the red carpet outside the Doha Tribeca Film Festival when the fan approached the actor. He cursed her out in Arabic demanding that she wait her turn before striking her. Moments later, she got her picture. What a keepsake.

It‘s only three short months until Men in Black III hits the theaters, demonstrating exactly what all the drama from Will Smith’s trailer (the giant one he parked in the middle of a New York street), Will Smith‘s supposed re-write of the script, and probably a lot of other Will Smith-related issues result in.

Judging by this trailer, it’s a lot of inconsistent stylization and some bizarre half-jokes from…yup, Will Smith.

The 1960s time-travel story line seems to be tenuous at best, as though a writers‘ room had settled on a script, then a junior writer raised his hand and said, “What about Mad Men?” Then the entire room decided that they needed to set the movie in Austin Powers 1960s rather than any era that actually existed.

One final note: The bikes that the agents ride look exactly like the vehicles from South Park that plug people’s asses and mouths, but are still better than going through security at the airport.

Sadly there’s no one to defend the galaxy against Will Smith in the first trailer for Men In Black III. Here we mostly see Smith as Agent J marauding around New York City and giving aliens and humans alike some serious sass. I guess it’s important to impress alien enemies with the latest slang before liquefying them with a ray gun.

After ten years away from the screen, the MiB are still operating in secret under the nose of John Q. Public. A powerful enemy escapes their holding cell and travels backward in time to kill Agent K and rewrite history. Agent J, being the fan of history that he is, finds a way to jump back in time as well to stop the fiendish plot. This is a pretty vague first look, so let’s look forward to a longer, more plot-driven trailer. In other words, let’s see Alice Eve in some tiny 1960′s dresses.

The post 15 Possible Titles For Will Smith’s New ‘MIB III’ Song appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Rumor is that Will Smith would like to get back to his rapping roots, contemplating collaboration with producer La Mar “Mars” Edwards. While the words came from Big Willy himself, he did not address the schedule for development on a new music project, be it, single, album, or possibly even a tour. The timing of this announcement is such that if he gets cracking, he could have a single out to coincide with the release of Men in Black III in May of next year. Well, in the spirit of his last two music/film collaborations (“Men in Black” and “Black Suits Comin’ (Nod Ya Head),” we’ve assembled a list of suggested song titles. He can pick whatever title he likes most, or if he likes a bunch, he can take ones he wants and make a whole album out of them. We’re just happy to be involved, honestly.

15. Shiny Suit Anthem (Drop Ya Shoulder)

14. (Tom) Cruise Control

13. Men In Black Having Sex (Smith is a Huge Dirty Work Fan)

12. Peep My Trailer! (#neighborsjustjealous)

11. Xenuphobia

10. Tommy Lee Jonesin’

9. Trilogy Means Three (Times The Cash)

8. Just The Two Of Us (Club Mix ft. Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Katie Holmes, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Beckham)

7. Brolin’ Down The Street In My Six-Four

6. Phorgot About Philly

5. I Whip My Kids Back And Forth (Clean Version)

4. I Whip My Motherf*ckin’ Kids Back And Forth (Album Version)

3. Time Travelin’ (4 Some Reason)

2. Coulda Been Like Hammer

1. Jiggy Up Ya Summer (ft. Tyler, the Creator)

In exchange for these, all we ask for is one more scene where he’s yelling and pointing at someone while his teeth are clenched, but only because he loves them so damn much. He can wear a wife-beater or not. It’s entirely up to him.

Some brave soul was able to escape the set of Men In Black III with a few spy photos of the current production. What manner of technology allowed them to pull off such a feat? Was it an alien device that allowed them to cloak their whereabouts while the images was captured, or perhaps they wer taken via a high-powered telescope capable of seeing far into adjacent galaxies. Either that or they simply walked up with a Canon Elf. Story developing…

In the photos, we see Will Smith’s Agent J, Josh Brolin‘s Agent K, and a cowboy who showed up for work in a pink shirt hanging out in a field in Queens, NY. What are those shiny jetpack/rocket booster things they are trying on? Time machines, maybe? Or super-awesome jetpacks?? Whichever, I want one. (Faded Youth)

This round up of set pics proudly features on-set looks at two blockbusters and one film that everyone involved promises will be better than the first one.

Let’s start with The Amazing Spider-Man. In the first photo, star Andrew Garfield is told to pose “as though he was appearing in a JC Penney back-to-school ad.” Needless to say, he nailed it. We’ve also got Martin Sheen at his Martin Sheeniest, Sally Field quite simply bringin’ it, and Rhys Ifans needing medical attention for a pretty wicked neck rash. If these photos don’t wanna make you see The Amazing Spider-Man…then…I dunno…maybe some later photos will or something.

Then we’ve got the large scale arts and crafts project that also doubles as the Wrath of the Titans set. I have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of catapults in my day, and I would say this one falls squarely in the middle. Pretty unremarkable. Much like this film will be.

Finally, we’ve got MIB III set pics featuring Bill Hader as Andy Warhol for reason unknown. We’ve also got a bunch of shirtless men in shiny silver pants. After last weeks gallery (attached) I’m getting the impression that Will Smith’s “rewrite” may have turned the beloved alien franchise into a homoerotic all-male revue. Whatever. We’ll call it a lateral move.

After noted screenwriter William Smith declared that the script wasn’t up to his new standards, things were looking a little dicey for the third installment of the blockbuster franchise. Well, sleep easy, fans of gratuitous sequels. Will Smith retreated to his cabin in the woods and, quill in hand, rewrote what many will find to be the most compelling story since he regaled us with the exploits of a suave cupid named Hitch. Enter: Men in Black III.

Everything seems to be tracking well in these picture taken on set at Coney Island. We’ve got Will Smith looking like his own grandfather, Josh Brolin as a biker, a Pussycat Doll and a black midget.

I’m really happy that Big Willie was able to get this thing back on track. Try to flex on him? Don’t be silly.

The Brooklyn Paper got some pictures from Men In Black III‘s shoot at Relish Diner earlier this week. There’s no word on whether Josh Brolin had to wait an hour to be seated even though he had  a reservation, and then once he did get a seat the waitress essentially disappeared. And would it kill you guys to bring him a fork?!

They took this Brooklyn icon and warped it back to a time before Kelis shot her “Milkshake” video.

Will Smith explains to an exceptionally tall Josh Brolin the size of the hot dog he would like.

And naturally, it being Williamsburg, some hipsters rode by dressed outlandishly on an impractical bike. Look at those f&^%ing hipsters.

Looks like Barry Sonnenfeld understood and enjoyed all of the jokes in A Serious Man. The Men In Black III director and Coen Bros brosef has just cast Michael Stuhlbarg in the galaxy defending sequel.

Stuhlbarg will play a character named Griffin. The role was originally offered to Sharlto Copley, but that deal never went through. Nothing is known about the character beyond his name, so we can’t accurately say whether he will get covered with slime or will cover somebody else with slime. I’m 90% certain that slime will factor in, however. Unless there is another re-write (snarf-laughs and then hi-fives other movie bloggers). (THR)

The post ‘Men In Black’ Writer Might Be An Alien appeared first on Screen Junkies.

There’s a screenwriter on the famously troubled Men in Black sequel who goes by the Earth name of “Mike Soccio.” He apparently has a relationship with the movie’s star (and screenwriter?), Will Smith, that dates all the way back to Smith’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” I’ll give you a minute to sing the theme song to yourself.

Anyway, the rub here is that the other people working on the MIB script didn’t even know that Soccio was working on it, which is highly irregular and a possible violation of WGA rules. Here’s Sony on Soccio’s involvement with fellow screenwriter Etan Cohen:

“[Soccio] is a long-time and well-known collaborator on Will’s projects … [Soccio] was hired for minor on-set punch-up work during our initial production period while Etan was not on location. If any writer was unaware of his involvement, we regret that.”

So basically, Soccio, a long-time collaborator with Will Smith, is working on the script for Men in Black 3, despite the fact that none of the other screenwriters seem to know who he is. If only they’d looked at his name: “Mike Soccio” is an anagram for “Come To Uranus.” Hurry, spread the word before your memory gets erased, like in that movie Total Recall. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Men In Black III has suffered it’s first casualty. The topsy-turvy production schedule has caused Manny from Quiet On The Chef Gourmet Catering to leave the project. He’s reportedly upset to have to jump ship but he’s got to pay his bills. Alec Baldwin is also leaving.

Baldwin had signed on to play the MiB boss back in 1969 but now schedule conflicts will prevent him from playing the straight man opposite coffee-drinking worms. “I’m not doing that. I’m out of it; the schedule didn’t work out,” he said.

I’m sure Stephen Baldwin is available though. That would be good too, right everyone? Guys? You want Stephen? Stephen Baldwin? He’s available. Sorry Stephen. Maybe next time. (Vulture)

Rumor has it that Will Smith is working on the screenplay for Men In Black 3. Frankly, we’re just giddy at the thought of the man who wrote “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” transferring his writing prowess to the big screen. Who knows what wondrous surprises are in store for film goers? Actually, we do. Here are 10 possible surprises in Will Smith’s upcoming Men In Black 3 screenplay.

10. Zach Galifianakis and Betty White are shoehorned into the story as the “fat bearded alien” and the “old lady alien,” respectively.

9. The script is peppered with no-less than 14 references to I, Robot that will be understood by less than 1% of the audience.

8. The script contains an extended sequence in which a drunken Rip Torn tries to break into a bank.

7. Instead of aliens, the MIB now protect us from sexy, homoerotic vampires.

6. Agent J is now accompanied at all times by a dorky, sweater-wearing robot named Carltron Banksbot and a jive-talking green sidekick named Martian Lawrence.

5. Smith’s children, Jaden and Willow will play the aliens Egotron and Vanity, Twin Emperors of the planet Narcissist.

4. Agent J travels back in time to warn his mom and dad about the threat of an alien assassin. Unfortunately, his parents just don’t understand.

3. It is revealed that aliens have been visiting earth since the first “Willenium.”

2. Tommy Lee Jones has been completely written out of the script because Smith found his character to be “too old.”

1. It’s discovered that the only way to bring the invading aliens down is by whipping one’s hair back and forth.

Special thanks to Penn Collins and Wookiee Johnson!

There’s a certain irony to Men In Black 3‘s focusing on time travel as a plot motif, considering that the production is taking foreeeeeeeever. The Hollywood Reporter has a piece that details the lags the production has faced. The most hilarious reason is that Will Smith wants to add to his multi-hyphenate by adding “screenwriting” to his list of skills.

“He’s become very enamored with aspects of screenwriting,” says a source involved with the production. The source believes Smith has earned the right to weigh in on the script, but he says the actor’s process “takes a long time.” (The star’s reps did not respond to a request for comment.)

Jeez, tell me about it. I’ve been waiting YEARS for a follow-up album to Willenium. Hopefully he’s got one in the vault for the year Y3K. While Smith isn’t under any pressure to approve the script (or finish it), but I’d love to hear more about his process. Can we assume that he won’t approve any script unless it includes enough rhyming words to craft an end credits song?

Sony Pictures has decided to keep David Koepp after MiB III class. The writer has been hired to do several more weeks worth of work on the script bugs for the galaxy defending sequel and revise the words that will come out of the cast’s pretty mouths.

The production have yet to shoot the sequence that shows Will Smith’s Agent J in 1969, where he meets Josh Brolin as Young Tommy Lee Jones and Alice Eve as Young Emma Thompson. Perhaps those are the scenes that need the most work according to Sony. Either that or they want more jokes about how Elvis could totally secretly be an alien. (Deadline)

Sony has tightened up their summer 2012 tentpole release schedule (it’s never too early), and here’s what they’re working with:

(Please remember all release dates subject to change as movie execs get into pissing contests)

  • Men in Black 3 – 3D (May 25th) The third installment of the Tommy Lee Jones/Will Smith family-friendly sci-fi series, also starring Josh Brolin.
  • I Hate You, Dad (June 22nd) Adam Sandler is Andy Samburg’s dad in this comedy. Expect lots of silly voices, hilarious rage, and maybe some ironic rapping.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man – 3D (July 3rd) Andrew Garfield‘s fills the shoes Tobey Maguire vacated in what will certainly be Sony’s most touted summer release.
  • Here Comes the Boom (July 27th) Kevin James is a biology teacher that does karate or some crap.
  • Total Recall (August 3rd) Colin Farrell plays the protagonist (Quaid) in this remake that shifts a bit from the story of the original. This film isn’t listed as 3D, but don’t rule it out.

While not an inspired slate of offerings from Sony, summer usually exists as a breeding ground for the familiar, so in 13 months, get ready to turn off the thinking cap and get mesmerized by the explosions and the fat guy falling over. (Deadline)

Alice Eve has been brought in to portray a young Emma Thompson in the time travel storyline of Men In Black 3. Thompson’s self-confidence must be through the roof right now. When (if?) production starts up again next month, Eve will play Olivia, the secretary for the agency back in 1969. At first the agents think she’s hired for her pouty lips, but they soon discover she’s got more brains than she’s got curves. And she’s got a lot of curves, gentlemen. Men In Black is supposedly still on track for a May 25, 2012 release. There’s just the small matter of cobbling together a script that doesn’t completely suck. With the addition of Eve, this may not matter so much anymore. (Deadline)

Here they come, the Men In Black… galaxy delayers…

Looks like production has been delayed once again for director Barry Sonnenfeld‘s Men In Black III. The threequel halted filming once more to work on script issues, and after seeing Men In Black II, I believe that’s time well spent.

After a two month hiatus from December to February, the film was supposed to get back to shooting this week. That did not happen, and now the start date has been bumped back to March 28th. In the new entry into the series, Will Smith goes back in time to save a young Agent K (played by Josh Brolin) and the entire world (naturally). Perhaps the producers were planning on sending Smith back to the beginning of shooting with a copy of the finished script, to save the production a ton of money.

Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) wrote the original draft, and Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) has been brought in to rewrite the 60s-era time travel scenes. I thought the fun of this series was watching Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith bust alien ass. Do we really want to see an Austin Powers-y version of MIB? Even though it’s in 3D, the description of the plot does not make me horny, baby.

MIB 3 is still scheduled to mind-wipe moviegoers on May 25th, 2012. (Collider)

Good luck getting Tommy Lee Jones to take orders from a woman. He's going to scowl a whole lot more than usual. (Deadline)

In the film, Will Smith must travel through time to stop Jemaine Clement's evil alien Yaz from killing Agent K. The thought being that without K around to defend the galaxy time and time again, the world will be completely destroyed. Which is bad. But on the other hand, we wouldn't have to suffer through Tommy Lee Jones' portrayal of Two-Face in Batman Forever. It's a toss up for me.The Apple Store appears in the film as a time travel hub with the iPhone being the primary device for personal time travel. It still won't be able to make or accept calls though. Science fiction can only take you so far. (JoBlo)

Clement joins Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and director Barry Sonnenfeld, who have all signed on to the project.While details are scarce, Collider is reporting that Clement will play an evil character named Yaz. Based on Clement's sideburns, one can only assume that "Yaz" is none other than Boston Red Sox's great Carl Yastrzemski, aka Mutton-chop Yaz.On the plus side, it would be hard to make a film any worse than MIB II. Unfortunately, Clement was already involved in the sci-fi related catastrophe, Gentleman Broncos, so anything is possible.

The megastar with a penchant for box office destruction has to choose between two projects that no one cares about. The first is Men in Black 3, a film that when it would finally be released would be about as much in demand as a banged up prostitute. The second is a fantasy-adventure entitled The City That Sailed which Variety describes as such:City that Sailed revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer.So Smith kinda just has to wait around the entire film until Manhattan docks with London while his little b*tch daughter lights candles? This project is going to need David Copperfield riding in barechested on a Bengal Tiger to get my interest peaked.Oh David, I remember those days.

Both actors excel at weird, broad comedic performances and would be a perfect fit in the MiB universe. Though I'm not sure about Cohen. They already did the Ballchinian thing in part two.
