Will Smith has always taken some pretty odd film roles. Lots of melodramatic roles such as Seven Pounds, and The Pursuit of Happyness, but then when QT offers Smith Django Unchained, he balks, saying the role isn’t big enough.

Apparently Ridley Scott‘s film about NFL concussions IS big enough, because Smith is circling that project. The film is based on a catalytic GQ article called Game Brain that took one of the first critical looks at the epidemic of concussions in the NFL.

Smith would play Bennett Omalu, a Pittsburgh doctor, originally from Africa, who first diagnosed CTE, which is the affliction that results from have having your head stepped on by 300-lb linemen for 10 years. The film is said to have been a whistleblower-type film in the vein of The Insider, but we hope with far less Russell Crowe. Like zero Russell Crowe, if we want to be specific.

There’s a lot of things that are funny about electronic dance music. Ibiza. Bottle service. Day clubs. Artists with names like “Tiesto.” Hopefully HBO will realize those things are all funny in its new half-hour comedy about electronic dance music, rather than treat the scene with reverence, because, come on. REVERENCE?

From no less than Irvine Welsh, Will Smith (!), Jay-Z, and Calvin Harris comes the TV project about which little is known other than: It’s 30 minutes, fictional, and a comedy.

Smith and -Z seem to be taking their relationship to a new level after having produced Black Annie together, but it’s still a little confusing as to how a project like this became their second stop.

Jada Pinkett Smith is also producing, which means we can expect Jaden Smith to make a cameo as either a turntable, or possibly a bottle of Ciroc vodka.

No one wants to, but this is a movie site, and movies with Will Smith are of general interest in the same way that the People Magazine crossword puzzle is of interest to some. Sony has hired the Safe House screenwriter (David Guggenheim) to draft Bad Boys 3 into an actual film, and Deadline is telling us that Sony wouldn’t be doing that unless they felt confident about the return of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

Whether or not Michael Bay is involved is anyone’s guess, but he hasn’t been in discussions up to this point. UGH. This news is painful if it’s true, and moot if it isn’t.

The good news is that Martin Lawrence may read this news, then run to the mirror and work on his, “Oh, hell no!” delivery, while Will Smith does the same thing, only his delivery comes out “Ohmm hmmll nulllh,” because he says it while face down in a massage table, and the table material muffles his words as he says them.

Will Smith is now attached to star in Selling Time, a supernatural thriller that “follows a man who is given a chance to relive the worst day of his life in exchange for seven years off his life expectancy.” It’s a pretty heavy hypothetical and one many people would struggle with. Namely because nobody ever knows what tomorrow holds, let alone what could happen in alternate universe tomorrows. In the case of Will Smith, which terrible day would he relive in order to correct? The day he agreed to do After Earth or the day he decided not to star in The Matrix?

The script was written by DreamWorks Television president Dan McDermott because studio executives aren’t even trying to hide their meddling any more. Currently, there is not a director attached and Smith himself is still in the process of signing on. The deal is expected to be finalized once the details about the size of his trailer and the casting of his kids can be worked out.

When 44-year old Will Smith replaced 40-year old Ben Affleck in Focus last April, 23-year old co-star Kristen Stewart left, citing too large of an age gap (Rupert Sanders is 42). This left the Crazy, Stupid, Love. writer/director duo of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa with the task of finding a hotter 23-year old to play opposite Smith, a better 23-year old. I’d say, they’ve done well.

Margot Robbie, who appears in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, has signed on to play the fledgling female con artist who teams up with Smith’s more seasoned one. She beat out total oldsters Olivia Munn, Michelle Williams, Jessica Biel and Rose Byrne. (Variety)

Today we celebrate…A RELEASE DATE FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE (DAY 2). And that day is July 3, 2015. However, before you get really excited and break out your Will Smith fighter pilot jumpsuit, know that he will not be joining the cast.

Director Roland Emmerich has said that Will Smith won’t joining “because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name. It would be too much.” Which is ironic because those words were uttered by ROLAND EMMERICH.

If Will Smith is “too much” for Mr. Godzilla, then perhaps Will Smith should tone things down.

Or maybe Emmerich was just afraid he would have to cast the rest of the Pinkett-Smith clan in the film.

I’m willing to concede that jigginess is in the eye of the beholder, but it’s my personal opinion that Will Smith’s reason for not playing the title role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained isn’t very jiggy at all. In fact, I’ll take it one step further and say that it’s stupidest, most pretentious, and least prescient decision I’ve come across recently. And I cover entertainment news.

Will Smith, in an interview, told Entertainment Weekly, the Will Smith of magazines, “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead!” Never mind that the film is called Django Unchained, and Django kills just about every bad guy in the film. But Will Smith wasn’t going to take “killing just about every bad guy in the film” for an answer. Remarkably, he goes on.

Smith then offers up that asked QT to rewrite the film to give him a bigger role with more action, including taking down the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie. “I was like, ‘No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!’”

That last quote sounds just as appropriate as a toddler’s request for a preschool play as it does oozing from the mouth of Big Willie Style. (via A.V. Club)

Not one to be beat at his post-apocalyptic game, Will Smith shows Tom Cruise that there’s only one last man on Earth and that man is Will Smith. And if there were to be two last men on Earth, the number two position goes to Jaden Smith.

From M. Night Shyamalan, After Earth tells the story of a father and son who crash land on a planet where everything has evolved to kill humans. As the older Smith’s General Cypher Raige sits dying in the ship’s cockpit, his son Kitai must venture into the strange world to recover the ship’s rescue beacon, with only his swag to protect him. At least the marketing team stepped in and revealed the Shyamalan’s obvious twist that the pair have crash-landed on Earth in the trailer. Now we’re just left to wonder which Smith will awkwardly rap about the film’s plot on the movie’s soundtrack.

To summarize, Jaden Smith is number two.

This shouldn’t qualify as news, because that Carlton dance is effing hilarious and should be enjoyed by everyone, but nonetheless, I would like to set off Alfonso Ribiero’s Google Alert today, probably because he could use the boost.

The prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, the Caribbean’s most popular all-inclusive resort, have been hitting Will Smith’s mid-90′s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air pretty hard, according to the prison’s librarian, who says that the DVDs hav been flying off the shelves, probably because they’re masturbating to Hilary or the first Aunt Viv, but maybe because the can relate to Will’s “fish out of water” conundrum on a very real and palpable level.

Or it’s a testament to the fact that Will Smith appeals to so many demographics that not even hardened terrorists can resist his charms.

Does this mean that a resurgence of Blossom is due in psychiatric wards all over the world?

No. Blossom was terrible.

Although M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith, and Jaden Smith were apparently too bush to make it to San Diego for Comic-Con this year, Sony still made an effort to get the word out about their upcoming collaboration After Earth. The panel consisted of a lot of behind the scenes footage and video interviews, including one where Shyamalan says he’s taking a “documentary”-like approach to the material, about a far-off future Earth.

There was also this promo video, which lays out the alternate history that will be explored in the movie. There’s not any actual footage from the movie or any looks at the cast, but it’s pretty cool. I’ll go on the record and say this is the best Facebook-themed movie teaser since The Social Network. (The Playlist)

The post Will Smith Explains Why He Dropped Out Of ‘Django Unchained,’ Kind Of appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Will Smith was famously one of several actors to drop out of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, the upcoming Django Unchained. Many industry analysts and fans assumed that this was due to the film’s controversial subject matter, having to do with slaves committing ghastly acts of revenge on their white oppressors and whatnot. Not so, says Smith in a recent interview with Empire magazine:

“I came really close, it was one of the most amazing screenplays I had ever ever seen. I was in the middle of ‘Men in Black 3‘ and [Tarantino] was ready to go, and I just couldn’t sit with him and get through the issues, so I didn’t want to hold him up. That thing’s going to be ridiculous. It is a genius screenplay.”

So Smith chalks up his declining to do the film to a scheduling conflict (and some undisclosed “issues” with the screenplay). We’ll probably never know if this was the REAL reason or if Smith is just being charitable, but at least now we can buy our tickets to Django Unchained secure in the knowledge that the screenplay has the Will Smith Stamp of Approval. I’ve seen movies for less. (The Playlist)

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.

We figured, since he’s so famous, what would happen if some other well known celebs traded places with Phil for the day. Here are the creepy, creepy results. Dreamworks Animation, please don’t steal this idea.

Think you can press “play” on a MacBook better than anyone else in the country?

Then you just might have what it takes to be America’s Got DJ! (or whatever the shit they’re gonna call it).

Simon Cowell, Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett-Smith are teaming up to bring the country that DJ talent search show that no one asked for. On it, contestants will be graded on a number of skills, including:

  • Ability to rock back and forth because you’re so into the music you’re playing
  • Ability to rock back and forth with one headphone held to your ear because you’re so into the music you’re playing, but also gotta cue up the next song
  • Ability to kill the one decent song you’ve played all goddamn night after 25 seconds
  • Ability to carry a sense of entitlement even though your skill set was mechanized like 60 years ago
  • Ability to discuss plans for this year’s Coachella

Cowell has Tweeted that he will not be judging this show, but rather producing. Sorry Simon Cowell fans:

“Excited to announce new DJ show. I will NOT be judging this show. Excited to be working with@jadapsmith. Stay tuned!”

My prediction is that this show, if it gets picked up, will replace Jersey Shore, and before that, Rock of Love, as America‘s premiere source of camp entertainment.

Work them 1s and 2s, asshats!

Who better to host the Kids‘ Choice Awards than the man who single-handedly has managed create stars out his children, despite public pleas of “Please no, Will! No more Jaden and Willow! They’re too jiggy!!!” Or possibly not jiggy enough. The jigginess of the Smith children remains a hotly contested issue. In case it’s not clear, the host in question is Will Smith.

This announcement is big news for the 25th anniversary of the awards show, which celebrates the greatest performers in the arts by just douching them with green slime to raucous applause, something the Oscars and Tonys simply refuse to do. Nickelodeon president Marjorie Cohn asks, “How better to celebrate 25 years of Kids’ Choice Awards than with the biggest movie star in the world?”

Dammit, Marjorie! You know we don’t have an answer to that!

She then furthers my ire by boasting, “He’s a larger than life presence who knows how to play big, and we’re excited he’ll be taking the stage for the biggest, loudest, messiest spectacle in the show’s 25-year history.”

Hmm. Based on that description, look for Will Smith to convert the audience to Scientology en masse while Jaden’s body rips apart in the final stage of his metamorphosis into Beelzebub.

The awards take place March 31st at 8 PM Eastern/Pacific on Nickelodeon. You won’t want to miss it, earthlings.

(My theory)

The post The First Aunt Viv From ‘Fresh Prince’ Still Hates Will Smith appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Last week, we caught a nostalgiatastic snapshot of almost the entire Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast, reunited for an appearance at Karyn Parson’s (Hilary) charity event. Noticeably absent were both Aunt Vivs.

While we can’t account for the second, longer-running Aunt Viv, we have an idea of why the first one, Janet Hubert, wasn’t in attendance. She just HATES Will Smith, and doesn’t voice her distaste in the most diplomatic fashion.

Hubert told TMZ recently, ”There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an asshole like Will Smith,” Hubert said.

Considering how phenomenally well-liked Smith has managed to be over the course of his career, it sounds like Hubert is just a little peeved that she was clipped after contract negotiations fell through. She went on to say, ”He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word.”

You heard it from TMZ first – Will Smith doesn’t know the word “an apology.”

Heady stuff.

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 7 Awkward Clips Of Actors Crying appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Few things in life get as uncomfortable as watching a man cry. Granted, there are often good reasons for a man, woman, or child to cry, but they don’t make the situation any less awful. This awkwardness is compounded when the man crying is in a movie. In person, you have an obligation to tend to the man in distress and make sure he’s OK. When watching a film, you don’t know whether to laugh or cry with him or just look at the wall of the theater until it’s all over.

These clips represent a few of the films that have crying scenes so awkward that your only choice is to turn away and repeat, “This isn’t happening. This isn’t happening.” It’s horrible. Just horrible.

Mr. Miyagi – The Karate Kid Part II

Fortunately, no other characters are around to experience this champion cry by the pudgy, tank-topped Scotty, but that doesn’t really do much to make things better for the audience. Scotty really lets loose after Dirk refuses a sensual open mouth kiss. Scotty misread the situation pretty awesomely, and now he will spend the next minute or so reminding himself that he’s a “f*ckin’ idiot.”

He sure is.

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.

6 photosThings Are Looking Quite Jiggy On The 'MIB III' Set

Denzel Washington will be the lead in Will Smith‘s Hurricane Katrina drama the American Can. Will Smith has demanded it. Well, Washington hasn’t signed on or anything, but WILL SMITH HAS DEMANDED IT.

The role that Washington is up for is that of John Keller, an ex-Marine who wards off looters with the residents on the American Can apartment complex after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. After two days of struggle, Keller was able to bring help and save the lives of dozens of the building’s tenants. Wow. That is the most Denzel role to ever have Denzeled.

Originally, Smith was planning to star with The Blind Side‘s John Lee Hancock handling script and direction, but will now only sign on in a producer capacity as his obligations to star with his son Jaden in M. Night Shyamalan‘s One Thousand A.E. have tied up his schedule. I know that good parents are willing to do anything for their children, but M. Night Shyamalan movies? Jaden had better hook his dad up on Father’s Day. (Vulture)

Will Smith wants his Men In Black boss to write Annie for his daughter, Willow. No, Rip Torn won’t be adapting the famous musical (though that would be awesome). Men In Black III‘s Emma Thompson is his first pick to write the film that he’s producing with Jay-Z. Thompson is well-suited for this material because she’s British.

Actually, she’s well-suited because of her prior scripting work. She wrote Sense and Sensibility as well as the Nanny McPhee films. That paints an awesome visual of Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel and Freeway sitting around watching Sense and Sensibility together. All really quiet and really engrossed. (Vulture)

Though the possibility has gotten more remote, Will Smith could be returning to the wild wild west as the lead in Quentin Tarantino‘s new spaghetti western Django Unchained. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio is now in actual talks to play the lead villain. Between Tarantino, Smith and DiCaprio, that’d be one heckuva posse.

Leo’s All-Time Greatest Spazzouts

DiCaprio might play Calvin Candie, the ruthless Candyland ranch owner, who pits male slaves against one another in battles to the death and offers up the female slaves for sexual abuse. Man, that guy could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance. Freed slave Django must come to his captive wife’s rescue. Smith is on the top of Tarantino’s list for Django, though Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba and Chris Tucker (really?) are also possibilities. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson are also expected to join the cast in major roles.

Tarantino almost nabbed DiCaprio for Landa in Inglorious Basterds, as the actor was interested in the role early on. The talks didn’t pan out that time, but perhaps second time’s a charm? (Deadline)

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)

Amazing.

The post Against All Odds, Zemeckis Put In Charge Of Disney’s ‘Animated American’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

After Robert Zemeckis‘ mo-cap mega-disaster Mars Needs Moms, I think it’s crazy that Disney’s having him produce another animated feature for them, as opposed to banning him from their lot forever. Hollywood works in mysterious ways.

Zemeckis and Bob Cooper will produce Animated American, which takes place in a Who Framed Roger Rabbit-esque universe. (Ah, the good Zemeckis’ years…) A live-action family raises an animated boy, who grows up and goes on a quest to find his real family. The script is being written by Rob Edwards, who wrote The Princess and The Frog. That means you can expect characters to say the word “gumbo” a bazillion times.

Edwards has also been tapped to write Amulet for Warner Bros. Produced by Will Smith, and based on a graphic novel (of course) by Kazu Kibuishi, it’s the story of a brother and sister who find out they’re from a family of supernatural gatekeepers, who must keep monsters and demons in check with a powerful amulet. Kids + Amulet > Monsters + Demons. Got it. (Variety)

The post Will Smith’s Absurd Trailer Bigger Than Yours appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Will Smith has come a long way since “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” He’s one of the top movie stars in the world, and he apparently thinks that entitles him to the biggest trailer in the world while he works hard on Men In Black III – a 53-foot double-decker trailer with the nickname “The Heat.” And apparently the residents of SoHo where the behemoth is parked aren’t grateful for the blessing of a miniature economy sitting in front of their houses – here’s a quote from one SoHo resident, moments before having his mind erased by one of those little flashy things:

“This thing is like a duplex. How would Will Smith feel if I parked that thing out in front of his house? People forget this is a residential neighborhood, not a film lot — that thing is taking up half our gasoline reserve.”

The general consensus appears to be “why does it have to be so big? Can’t Will Smith live with a reasonable trailer, instead of one that takes up three zip codes and at least 8 dimensions?” The answer to this is simple: It has to be this big to fit all the shit into it. For example:

“Inside, it features a full-service kitchen with arched windows, and matched-grain Italian cherrywood cabinetry.  There’s even a space for Smith to have his makeup and wardrobe done.  A satellite uplink on the roof can send Smith’s movies to and from a 50-inch plasma TV or 37-inch TVs that pop up from cabinets.  The trailer also features a 100-inch roll-down movie screen.  Upstairs holds a lounge with a bar, enough office space for 30 people to hold a meeting, and the mobile offices of Smith’s assistant and his personal writing staff.”

So yeah, of course it has to be that big! (The New York Post)
