Michael Bay’s Bad Boys movies are full of all kinds of things: cars, guns, explosions…bigger explosions. But what they’re most full of are cuss words. Heck, you could sum up the scripts for both movies in four letters. Well now, one clever YouTuber has done away with all the boring stuff like plot and character development and given us what we really want: nothing but swearing. The supercut is most certainly NSFW, but that’s half the fun, isn’t it? READ FULL STORY
Tag: Will Smith (11-20 of 33)
The Oscars are like a fine red wine. They should get better with age. They should make you face-on-the-floor drunk with giddiness about the sheer glory and thrill of movies.
Unfortunately, the award show’s ratings have been as flat as an old gin and tonic these past several years, and the host/hosts haven’t helped. Anne Hathaway and James Franco, in an attempt to reach a younger audience, gave new meaning to the phrase “odd couple” as lackluster out-of-sync Oscar co-hosts in 2011, and Oscar vet Billy Crystal did his usual shtick, stepping in for Eddie Murphy as host of this past February’s telecast.
With the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on the brink of announcing a host for next year’s 85th annual Academy Awards, set to take place Feb. 28, 2013, and airing live on ABC, here are several of our picks for who should host. Jennifer Aniston, we’re looking at you!
On the face of it, Men in Black 3 really had no business being as good as it is. This is a sci-fi comedy franchise date that dates back to the days when Bill Clinton was in office and the Spice Girls were new on the scene. Its critically reviled previous installment hit theaters 10 long years ago, years in which almost no one, with the possible exception of Will Smith’s accountant, was pining for another Men in Black movie. Its production was widely known to have been plagued with major headaches and delays as the script went through endless rewrites. And then, of course, there’s just the whole 3-ness of it all.
When it comes to movie franchises, three has almost never been a magic number. The history of threequels is largely a chronicle of disappointment, pointlessness, and overstayed pop-culture welcome. For every Toy Story 3, Return of the King, or Return of the Jedi, there have been a whole lot of Superman 3s, Matrix Revolutions, Spider-man 3s, The Godfather: Part IIIs, Jaws 3-Ds, Star Trek III: The Search for Spocks, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s Ends.

Will Smith might be the world’s most energetic man. On the red — er, black — carpet at last night’s Men in Black 3 premiere, he exuberantly spoke with each reporter even as his publicist tried her best to move him down the line. But even a super-human movie star has limits — Smith told EW that though he really wanted to write MIB 3‘s theme song, he worried that the extra responsibility would be “too much.” We pointed out that he did at least get the chance to perform the Fresh Prince rap on Graham Norton last weekend, and Smith responded with a booming laugh. “Yo, it is amazing how many people know that dag-gone Fresh Prince theme song around the world,” he said, adding that he doesn’t often find himself busting out the catchy tune: “I don’t just be around the house rapping it.”
The premiere’s afterparty suggested otherwise. Around 11 p.m., Smith himself took the stage on the top deck of Manhattan’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and gamely supported his son, Jaden, while Smith the Younger performed a few of his own raps. (Willow stopped by to say “hello” as well.) Then the Independence Day star grabbed the mic and started performing a few of his old hits, including “Summertime” and the original Men in Black theme song. Smith also informed a cheering throng that the next tune was for his true fans — before, yes, launching into the theme from Fresh Prince. The man knows his audience. Oh, and to make things even more nostalgic, DJ Jazzy Jeff was on hand to back Smith during each song.
Watching the crowd lap up Smith’s (and Jazz’s!) performance made it clear that he could easily launch a concert tour if he wanted. Even though the Oscar nominee is now better known as an actor than as a rapper, his ’90s singles hold up remarkably well — check out the video below, and you’ll find that “Summertime” still works as a warm-weather jam.
Will Smith didn’t wince or groan when British TV chat show host Graham Norton queued the music for the theme song of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air during Smith’s appearance on Friday. Norton first asked Smith if he ever chafed when people brought up his TV roots, like so many stars do when the public won’t let them shed their early roles.
“Listen man,” said a smooth and gracious Smith, “as long as they’re screaming ‘Will,’ I’m cool.” The man, who was in England on part of his Men in Black III promotional tour, then gamely launched into a delightful rendition of the Fresh Prince song, with the audience and Take That’s Gary Barlow on keyboard as back-up. It was a terrifically easy moment, as light-hearted as it was rousing. The man is as natural a movie star as there ever was. Want more proof? Watch how after he checks a TV journalist provocateur he immediately regains his sunny equanimity. Yikes, he’s good.

Meanwhile, Will Smith returns to the multiplex after a four year absence, and the week kicks off with the music business celebrating its (quantifiably) biggest stars. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY
Yesterday PopWatch brought you the viral video of a stunned Will Smith giving a Ukrainian reporter a little smack after the man went in for a sloppy kiss at the Men In Black III Moscow premiere. Some of the comments were outraged, with accusations against Smith ranging from homophobia to ignorance of European cultural etiquette. PopWatch’s revelation that the hand-checked man in question was Vitalii Sediuk, a semi-notorious snickerer of a TV journalist who is known for such stunts didn’t seem to cut the conversation short.
Folks, look at that picture. Smith appears genuinely put out, which strikes me as a reasonable response to a stranger trying to smush his or her tongue in your mouth. Meanwhile Sediuk is grinning like an idiot, well aware that he’s hit pay dirt by eliciting a swift and dramatic response from such an affable movie star. Sediuk is the same fellow who, with feigned earnestness, gave a scornful Madonna that bouquet of hydrangeas. Admittedly, she behaved like a miserable snot but the craven videos of Sediuk smugly preening about her poor form are equally obnoxious.
“He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him,” Smith told his handlers, before immediately regaining his smoothest-guy-in-the-room composure. One day later we’re still writing about Sediuk so I guess he’s sucker punched us. But would that this fade quickly into the minutiae of non-news. In the last week Will Smith publicly announced his admiration for President Obama’s support of gay marriage. “If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form,” Smith said at a press conference in Berlin. Whether you think any degree of physical violence is right or wrong, whether or not you think a kiss is just a kiss, let’s keep it real. Smith didn’t give Sediuk the back hand because he was a man. He did it because he was a clown.
In today’s slamdunk viral video news, TMZ just posted a clip of Hollywood nice guy Will Smith physically lashing out at a frisky Ukrainian reporter at the start of the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere today.
The reporter, from Ukranian TV channel 1+1, asks Smith for a hug, and the actor gladly obliges — only to find himself on the receiving end of an open-mouth kiss. Startled, Smith pushes the guy off, gives him a little slap in the face, then continues down the red carpet, joking with other, less aggressive reporters and signing autographs for fans. (Smith’s camp had no comment on the altercation.)
Jaden Smith has just cracked one of the great mysteries kept secret by the United States government, or at least he attempted to when he insisted on asking President Obama about the existence of aliens during a recent visit to the White House.
Will Smith told BBC Radio about his 13-year-old son’s encounter with POTUS and the big question he planned to ask, which Smith insisted he keep to himself.
“I was at the White House with my family and we were getting a tour,” recalled the Men in Black III star. “The night before, Jaden had said to me, ‘Dad, I gotta ask the president about the aliens,’ and I was like, ‘Dude, no, no, it’s not cool! Do not ask the president!’”
Smith continued: “So we get into the Situation Room and Jaden gets the look in his eyes and he leans over and he says, ‘Dad, what’s my punishment?’ And I was like, ‘Jaden, do not…’ and Barack is talking about the Situation Room, and Jaden says, ‘Excuse me, Mr. President?’ And Barack said, ‘Don’t tell me.’ And in perfect form—like, this is why he’s the President—he stopped and looked at Jaden and said, ‘The aliens, right?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, shoot!’ And he said, ‘Okay, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrials but I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting and if there would have had to have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.’”
Smith joked that Jaden only has about eight or nine more months left of being grounded, but perhaps Little Smith doesn’t realize that he may very well have sparked a whole stream of conspiracy theorists who have since retreated to their caves and begun the long arduous process of tin foil hat construction.
