The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »

It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.
Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »
Anne Hathaway, Daniel Day Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones and Joaquin Phoenix are likely shaking in their boots in preparation for this weekend's Oscar awards. Well, maybe just Anne Hathaway. DDL, TLJ, and JoPho are probably taking it easy-peezy, if this video is any proof. Sketch group Barely Political asks the question, What do these cinematic overachievers look like in the privacy of their own dressing rooms?
The answers might not be what you expect (Daniel Day Lewis is in character! Joaquin Phoenix is potentially, er, "dehydrated"?). Or maybe it is what you're expecting: Anne Hathaway bawling like a fully-grown musical theater kid in the spotlight.
Either way, it's certainly entertaining. Just ...don't tell Anne.
Ahh, the never-ending pursuit of the almighty
dollar yen, euro and ruble. It will forever dominate us all — especially those in Japan, Europe and Russia, respectively.
That's where the following American movie stars traveled to film a commercial or two. Fortunately for us, what happens overseas does not stay overseas. Thanks, YouTube! We haven't quite forgiven you for Bieber, but this is a good first step. Get More »
Tommy Lee Jones in right in the middle of an Oscar race thanks to his performance in the historical drama "Lincoln." So what could he possibly do to top his role as abolitionist senator Thaddeus Stevens? Well, how about playing American icon General MacArthur in the upcoming historical drama "The Emperor?"
And as this new trailer show, they might as well start engraving his name on the Oscar right now. Get More »

Also new this week is the Prohibition drama "Lawless," Whitney Houston's last performance in "Sparkle," the spooky stop-motion animated feature "ParaNorman," and the modern-dance showcase "Step Up Revolution." Get More »
There was nary an alien at the New York City premiere of "Men in Black III" (at least none that we know of — then again, Donald Trump was there, and we've always had a funny feeling about him …). However, Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and many more human-types were on hand to protect us from the scum of the universe as they walked the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater.
Check out our collection of photos from the premiere and rest easy knowing that the "Men in Black" are back on patrol as of May 25.
Director Barry Sonnenfeld returns to the popular sci-fi comedy franchise he helped shape with "Men in Black III," the long-awaited sequel that reunites Will Smith's Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K -- two Men in Black who monitor and control alien activity on Earth. J must go back in time to 1969 to avert a global extraterrestrial catastrophe and meets up with a young K, played with eerie verisimilitude by Josh Brolin.
The self-effacing Sonnenfeld is the first to admit that 2002's "Men in Black II" had some faults, but he insists that the current sequel is much closer in tone to the 1997 blockbuster original we all enjoyed. We asked Sonnenfeld about "Men in Black III"'s long journey to the screen, what happened to Frank the pug, and what the director would do differently to "Men in Black II" if he could travel back in time.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back in black and ready to enforce interstellar law with extreme prejudice in "Men in Black III."
Its been 10 years since the last installment, and though we get to see how MIB Agents K and J have settled into their gig protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe, we also get to see where they've been -- as J travels back to the 1960s to stop an alien from tearing the space-time continuum a new one. Josh Brolin costars as a young K, doing a dead-on Tommy Lee Jones impersonation.
