Posted by: Mike on Apr 2nd, 2009 Leave a Comment »

It’s official, Men In Black 3 has been green lit as of last night.

Will Will Smith return?
Will Tommy Lee Jones return?

Who knows.  But the studio execs behind MIB3 would be stupid to do this movie without them.

Posted by: Mike on Dec 22nd, 2008 Leave a Comment »

It’s been a long time since Jim Carrey was tops at the box office.  His new “I say yes to everything” comedy topped the charts this past weekend, pulling in just over $18 million.

  • Yes Man –  $18.2M
  • Seven Pounds – $16M
  • The Tale of Despereaux –  $10.5M
  • The Day the Earth Stood Still –  $10.2M
  • Four Christmases – $7.75M

This weekend was the first Will Smith movie that I can remember in a long time that didn’t take the number one spot on opening weekend.  Beat out by Jim Carrey, drats!

  Review of Alternate Version of I Am Legend
Posted by: Christine on Apr 8th, 2008 3 Comments »

I Am Legend Alternate Ending

After having seen I Am Legend at the premiere in New York City, I was thoroughly satisfied with the film. It had an elegant ending that left viewers with an explanation, if even a typical Hollywood one.

When the DVD release announcement was made, with the news that an alternate ending would be included, I was anxious to see the “controversial” ending. I had heard that the movie’s original ending was extremely different from the original Richard Matheson novel, so I picked up the book.

For those that don’t know the ending of the Matheson novel, and don’t mind me spoiling it, Show Spoilers

The ending of the book intrigued me, mainly because I think Will Smith would have done a fantastic job with it. This isn’t the ending that the filmmakers made as the alternate ending, but it has similar themes.

The alternate ending is detailed below, behind spoiler hiders. Read on if you have seen the alternate ending, or don’t mind heavy spoilers.

What did you think of the alternate ending of I Am Legend? Did you prefer it over the original ending?

I Am Legend on Blu Ray This week’s new releases are powerhouse films starring big stars. I Am Legend stars Will Smith as Robert Neville, the last man on Earth. Atonement stars Keira Knightley and James McAvoy as lovers torn apart when he’s wrongfully accused of a crime. Enchanted stars the adorable Amy Adams in her own Cinderella-story, where Prince Charming could be James Marsden or Patrick Dempsey (I’m sold either way).




  Most Popular: December 2007

Another year over, and another top ten list. December was a great month for movies, with the release of I Am Legend, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and many other great flicks. Here’s what the MovieSnobs readers were reading the most last month:

  1. I Am Legend Poster Giveaway – After attending the premiere of I Am Legend in New York City, Christine snagged one of the posters hanging in the lobby to give away. One lucky reader won the movie poster starring Will Smith and a desolate New York City.
  2. The Prestige – Explained – Possibly our most popular post ever, Mike’s minute-by-minute explanation of the film The Prestige has inspired a lively debate in the comments. It heated up this month with several people challenging Mike’s explanation of the film. Come join the discussion (if you’ve seen the movie, of course – this post is beyond spoiler-heavy).
  3. New Hitman Images – While Hitman wasn’t my favorite movie of the year (see my review), it was a decent enough action flick, and fanboys everywhere were drooling over new pictures of Timothy Olyphant as the video game character Agent 47.
  4. Optimus Prime Phone Call – The release of Transformers on DVD had everyone looking for the awesome promotion Paramount had on the official site where you could craft a phone call to a friend from…Optimus Prime. Unfortunately, the promotion was only live on the site for a short period of time.
  5. The Dark Knight Viral Marketing – Another of our most popular posts ever, this kicked off the start of the intense viral marketing campaign for the Summer ’08 Batman movie. December saw less of the viral games and puzzles and more of the official straightforward releases of posters, trailers, and the first six minutes of the film (which screened before IMAX showings of I Am Legend).
  6. Movie Theme Songs – Up a spot from last month, the YouTube video of a piano player doing some classic movie theme songs is still getting tons of clicks.
  7. Ryan Gosling – Underrated Actor of the Year – My love letter to the talent of Oscar-Nominee Ryan Gosling has been attracting fellow fans from all over the world. I have a feeling the adorable picture of him might have something to do with it…
  8. 40 Hottest Women Over 40 – Mike’s picture-filled post about the 40 hottest women over 40 features such beauties as Demi Moore, Emily Proctor, Halle Berry, and Maria Bello. Each one is accompanied by a blurb about why you know her, why she’s hot, and a picture to prove it.
  9. I Am Legend Review – The glowing, five-star review of I Am Legend tells just why this movie is worth the overpriced ticket, and why Will Smith is, and will always be, awesome.
  10. Batman Vs. Superman – Best Easter Egg Ever – The discovery of an Easter egg hidden in I Am Legend was exciting enough, but finding out that it was a movie poster for the fictitious Batman Vs. Superman movie? Comic fans swooned. Now that the film’s been out a while, there have been a few other movie poster Easter eggs, but none as interesting as this.



  Hancock, starring Will Smith

Anyone else think it’s about time Will Smith was cast as a superhero? In Hancock he stars as an apathetic superhero with a knack for destroying things while saving lives. In the trailer he destroys several highway signs, a sailboat, and most of a train. Check it out below, followed by the awesome poster.

Hancock hits theaters July 2nd, 2008, and is sure to be yet another Will Smith Fourth of July Blockbuster.
