The Martin Lawrence/Will Smith action movie franchise Bad Boys isn’t something you’d normally see covered on io9 or Gizmodo. But when you get a chance to be the first person ever to talk to the writer/director of the film, Joe Carnahan, about it, you make an exception.
Suicide Squad is a weird movie, and not just because it’s about a motley crew of supervillains set in the DC universe. The movie itself is also a motley amalgamation—a strange blend of different tones, stories, and pacing all mashed into something that has cool individual elements, but never really comes together.
And it was to not get a tattoo of the word “squad,” misspelled, from a possibly drunken cast mate. This is an excellent choice.
When Independence Day Resurgence hits theaters on June 24, 20 years (almost exactly!) will have passed both on screen and off since the first film. That’s a long time, but for co-writer and director Roland Emmerich, the wait was a necessary evil.
Marvel may have brought together all their best superheroes in The Avengers, but DC is bringing together their very own team of super villains in Suicide Squad. Hitting theaters in August, the dark comic book adaptation just released a crazy new trailer.
We’ve known for while that the next Independence Day would bring back more than a few familiar faces, and that one of those faces would not be Will Smith’s resident Earth-welcomer Steven Hiller. But thanks to a new tie-in website, there’s now an in-universe reason for his absence... and a rather permanent one at that.
Were you jealous of everyone at San Diego Comic-Con that got to see the early Suicide Squad trailer? Well you’re in luck. Warner Bros. has finally put the official video online. In it you’ll see the first look at what Jared Leto has in store for The Joker, and so much more.
Tell anyone there’s an Independence Day sequel in the works and their first question is, “Is Will Smith coming back?” He’s not, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. Now, it seems like one of reasons why he isn’t is M. Night Shyamalan.
Holy hell, a whole lot of star power just signed on to make Warner Bros. Suicide Squad movie. Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are all lining up to play bad guys forced to be good.
Finally some news to be thankful for! Independence Day 2 is officially greenlit. And now we can catch up with all our favorite characters. Like President Bill Pullman, the Levinson family and grown up Mae Whitman (who played the president's daughter). However, there's also some bad news.
The Winter's Tale movie was kind of a huge letdown — except for this unexpected scene featuring Will Smith in a surprising role. And now that this movie is out on DVD, here's Will Smith completely stealing the movie in one wacky sequence. Spoilers ahead...
Will Smith is set to star in a movie about superheroes with slightly interesting superpowers, like one girl who can read your mind by the way you fold your arms. Unless you unfold them (we guess).
We've seen a lot of terrible fantasy movies, including some awful fairy tales, in recent years. But Winter's Tale, out today, feels like a low-water mark. Worse, it feels like a symptom of a bigger problem: we can't imagine magic and wonder without shellacking on extra layers of heroic destiny and epic good-vs-evil…
This could very well be the most fantastic premise for an urban fantasy movie ever. Will Smith is set to star in The City That Sailed, about a New York street magician who is separated from his daughter in London.... and winds up sailing the entire island of Manhattan to England to retrieve her.
Why would you take this deal? In Selling Time, a man gets to relive the worst day of his life... exchange for shortening his lifespan by seven years. I'm guessing it's something to do with fixing the past, but that still sounds like a terrible deal. Will Smith is in talks to star, but there's no director yet.
Who will punch our aliens now? Independence Day director Roland Emmerich says that Will Smith is "too expensive" to appear in the sequel.
A Will Smith movie that bombs at the box office? An M. Night Shaymalan movie that people say could actually be worse? After Earth is just confusing as hell, and thus we’ve decided to answer your Frequently Asked Questions regarding the movie.
Admit it: You were secretly hoping for After Earth to be a trainwreck. It's M. Night Shyamalan's first movie since the oh-god-my-eyes Last Airbender. It's Will Smith trying to jumpstart his son Jaden's career. It has a ridiculous backstory. All signs pointed to another MST3K-worthy outing. Except After Earth is...…
They may be a little nutty, but this father and son duo can jam. Even as their oxygen supply is swiftly running out trapped in this post apocalyptic After Earth world. This is Big Will and Son in "After Earth, it's Just The Two of Us."
Think After Earth is just about Will Smith reconnecting with his son on a dangerous future Earth? WRONG. There's a whole baffling alien backstory, that you don't even know about. It's just not in the trailers. Journey with us as we attempt to untangle M Night Shyamalan's ridiculously complicated movie. And meet the…
