That Men In Black Crossover With 21 Jump Street Could Still Happen

men in blackEven though the Sony hack is officially a thing of the past, much of the leaked information has remained relevant in Hollywood. Yes, even the most ridiculous proposed crossover in recent Hollywood history: a Men in Black meets 21 Jump Street mash-up, from Jump Street writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. It turns out that wasn’t just a “clean and rad and powerful” fever dream of Jonah Hill, and the filmmaking duo recently came out and said that bonkers concept could still possibly come to fruition. More magical crossover-centric words have never been spoken.

Lord and Miller were on the red carpet for the Golden Globes this past weekend, having been nominated for their surprise box office smash The LEGO Movie, and MTV caught up with them to ask about the comedy/sci-fi masher, and here’s how Lord put it:

Nothing’s changed. It’s still a crazy idea, and we only do things that seem like they’re going to be terrible.

Doctor Who Season 9 Has Already Started Filming, Here’s What We Know

Doctor-Who-Deep-Breath1We’re only a few weeks removed from the most recent Doctor Who Christmas special, not to mention the news that Jenna Louise Coleman is staying on as the Twelfth Time Lord’s latest companion. Now the BBC just announced that the cameras are already rolling at the Cardiff studio for season 9, as well as revealed a list of guest stars for the first episodes of the season.

One of the visiting stars of the debut, which is a two-part affair, will be familiar to fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Actor and comedian Paul Kaye, who plays Thoros of Myr, the leader of the Brothers Without Banners in the third season of the fantasy epic, stops by for a turn, and seems pretty excited about it. He says:

Watch Billy Dee Williams And Lando Calrissian Return To Star Wars

If you’re a Star Wars character from the original trilogy, and you’re not making an appearance in The Force Awakens next December, don’t worry, Star Wars Rebels has your back. They’ve already brought in beloved characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Master Yoda, and even Darth Vader, and now they’re bringing back another fan favorite, Lando Calrissian, as voiced Bill Dee Williams himself. This new video hypes up his return, with Williams running lines, bringing his trademark smoothness to the voice role, and the cast and crew talking about how the character fits into the Rebels world.

We heard Lando was coming back, and even saw an image of how his character looks, but here you get actual footage. While I’m still not crazy about the animation style, they certainly capture the essence of the character. Lando has more swagger than anyone in the Star Wars universe, including Han, and that comes across here. And Williams may be 77-years-old, but he’s just as smooth as ever, bringing his charm and flair to the role one more time.

Syfy’s 12 Monkeys Flashes Back To The Future In Yet Another Clip

At the rate we’re going, we’ll see a substantial chunk of the debut episode of Syfy’s 12 Monkeys well before the premiere this Friday. Actually, between the release of the first nine minutes, followed by another three, we’ve already laid eyes on roughly a quarter of the pilot, but that’s not enough, that’s never enough, and the network released another piece for our perusal.

This UK Chappie Trailer Show That The World Is Scared Of A Teenage Robot

Just the other day, we got our best look yet at Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming robotic actioner Chappie in the form of an in depth trailer from Sony Pictures. It provided a wider view of the world of the film, as well as a more in depth look at the plot, and hot on the heels of that reveal comes this new trailer from the U.K.

Released by Yahoo U.K., this video hits many of the same notes as the previous offering, though there is a ton of new footage that we hadn’t seen yet. Chappie’s creator, Deon Wilson (Dev Patel), wants to make a machine that can think and feel, so of course someone finds a way to weaponize his invention, establishing a robotic police force. On the other side is Vincent Moore (Hugh Jackman and his mullet), a rival inventor and former soldier. He thinks artificial intelligence is too unpredictable, so his entry into these sweepstakes is something more akin to a drone, which looks conspicuously like ED-209 from RoboCop. (As has been pointed out repeatedly, there are also numerous similarities with Short Circuit.)

Avatar 2 Has Just Been Pushed Back, Here’s Why

AvatarIf you’ve been making plans for December 2016, and they involve going to see the long-in-the-works Avatar 2, James Cameron’s sequel to his 2009, highest-grossing-movie-of-all-time, you might need to find something else to do. The release of the first of three planned films—Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 were slated to follow in consecutive years—has been pushed back a year.

All three films were originally planning to shoot back-to-back-to-back sometime early-ish this year, and be released in 2016, 2017, and 2018. That strategy has been delayed, as the first film now won’t debut until December 2017.
