MIB3 Ousts The Avengers At Box Office

Men in Black 3 Numbers Are Good Jaden Smith In 4

Cash has been counted:

MIB3 made $1.5 million on Wednesday’s midnight showings!!

Sony Pictures expects it to top at LEAST $80 mil over the four day weekend.

This certainly confirms our suspicions, the reinvigorated Will Smith franchise will push aside The Avengers to become the new king of the hill!

Execs are optimistic for the weekend numbers because entire families are especially likely to hit the theater en masse on Memorial Day.

Is it already time to talk MIB4!

Do U agree with director Barry Sonnenfeld, who wants Jaden to take over the franchise in his Daddy's place??

Barry Sonnenfeld Wants Jaden Smith To Take Over His Dad's Role In MIB4

Barry Sonnenfeld wants Jaden Smith In MIB4

We have yet to see Men In Black III, but like every Hollywood franchise these days, people are already talking about the next installment!

While talking about where the idea for the current sequel came from, director Barry Sonnenfeld told sources that he wants Will Smith's son Jaden to take over for his pop if there's a sequel!

Stop groaning though because we're pretty sure he's just kidding! Here's what he said when talking about the possibility of Men In Back IIII:

"Will's kind of really smart, but as I said, kind of really annoying, too much energy. When he would get too rambunctious, I would tell him that for Men in Black 4, Will is out and Jaden Smith is in. … If we continue on this path, it won't be released until 2032 but it will be damn good. It all goes into the same pot; it doesn't matter which Smith brings it in. So I am sure he will be fine with it."

LOLz!

Since Will is all about encouraging his children's creative aspirations, we would think so, but he actually wants to remain the face of his favorite science fiction franchise. The actor proceeded to joke:

"Jaden is already 13 years old, so he’s at that mythological boys age, you know – it’s time for his bro-mitzvah. So he’s right at that place … He’s ready to test me so he can’t come anywhere near my movies right now!"

Ha! That's okay. If Hollywood really does decide to make another sequel in 2032, we have no doubt that producers will come knocking Jaden Smith's door!

Biebs and Gaga Men in Black III cameos

Did you know that Justin Bieber and Lady GaGa are aliens?

Much like the previous Men In Black films, director Barry Sonnenfeld planned lots of celeb cameos for the third installment of the science fiction franchise. Among the famous faces he plans on outing as aliens in Men In Black III are two of the music industry's biggest superstars and notoriously odd filmmaker Tim Burton.

The man behind the upcoming Will Smith comedy told sources:

Forget Cowboys! Dinosaurs Vs. Aliens Is Next!

Filed under: Film Flickers

dinosaurs vs aliens coming soon

Finally! Hollywood's releasing a historical picture! LOLz.

Men In Black III director Barry Sonnenfeld has made what is pretty much the most epic announcement of all time - he's getting ready to put together Dinosaurs Vs. Aliens!

The full title of Sonnenfeld's upcoming project is Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens, and he'll be working alongside comic book writer Grant Morrison to develop this epic tale as a graphic novel AND feature film, which will hopefully be in IMAX and 3D.

Here's what Sonnenfeld had to say about his dinosaur/alien filmmaking aspirations:

"Growing up, my fascination was all things dinosaur, and as an adult, I've had some success making films about aliens, so this is a dream come true."

The story will revolve around a "secret prehistoric world war battle," in which "an alien invasion attacks Earth in the age of the dinosaurs" and "the planet's only hope is the giants that roam the planet with, it turns out, a lot more intelligence than previously realized."

Words cannot properly express how exciting and important this project is. Finally, the untold tale of the dinosaur struggle for survival against aliens can be told…and MAYBE this film will provide us with new insight on how the dinos TRULY went extinct! Ha!

Are U excited for Dinosaurs Vs. Aliens?

MORE Production Delays For Men In Black III!

men-in-black-lll-production-delays

Uh-oh. Again?!

Although Men In Black III started shooting in November, it took a two-month hiatus in December and was expected to start shooting again this week in New York. However, sources close to the flick have revealed that the production date has been once again pushed back until March 28th, due to serious and ongoing script issues!

According to the insiders, series star Will Smith has been vocal with filmmakers about his creative issues with the screenplay, which Jeff Nathanson has begun rewriting from another draft done by Etan Cohen.

The plot reportedly centers around a time traveling Agent K, played by Tommy Lee Jones in the present (the portion already filmed in November) and Josh Brolin as a younger version of the character from 1969 (who has yet to begin production).

However, a spokesperson for Sony STILL maintains that this latest hiccup will not affect the film's planned May 2012 release date.

They better get a move on, though! Brolin has already publicly expressed his frustration with the delays, and if they don't get going, we doubt he'll wait around much longer!

That being said, Men In Black II was shiteous enough, so we're glad that this much care is being taken to ensure the quality of the script. Let's just hope that it pays off.

Thoughts??

It seems he may have a better offer!

Will Smith may drop out of Men In Black 3 to star in The City That Sailed.

It's been reported that Will has offers from both projects and is deciding on which to commit. MIB director Barry Sonnenfeld is set to sign on for the third movie, while fantasy adventure City would bring Truman Show scribe Andrew Niccol's script to the screen.

City centers on an NYC-based musician and his estranged daughter that lives in the United Kingdom. As the child discovers a magic room, Manhattan separates and begins to drift across the ocean. I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence has in talks to helm the flick.

Decisions. Decisions.
