Back in June we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey) is interested in directing Bad Boys 3, and in August it was reported that Sony had officially put the long-awaited sequel on their release calendar for 2017 (along with a spot for Bad Boys 4 in 2019). Not much else has been reported about the third installment in the franchise, but Will Smith himself has officially confirmed that we’ll be seeing Bad Boys 3 very soon.
This past weekend at Comic-Con, fans attending the Batman vs. Superman panel were treated to an additional surprise: the entire cast of Suicide Squad appeared on stage (minus Jared Leto) and introduced our first ever look at footage from the upcoming supervillain film. Despite their pleas to not record any of the footage, someone of course did, and it leaked online shortly thereafter in a really crappy quality. Well, director David Ayer and Warner Bros. feel your pain and have decided to do the right thing and just release the whole trailer online.
Alert, alert: Will Smith still has it. The star of the upcoming con man romantic comedy drama (co-ma rom-com-dram?) Focus hit The Late Show last night to chat it up with host David Letterman and, oh, yeah, to just randomly rap “Gettin Jiggy Wit It” alongside Letterman’s own band. Sure, most late night guests just walk out on stage, give a big hello, and sit down, but not Smith, who seemed determined to remind everyone of his rap roots.
Thank goodness for iPad apps. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' host Jimmy Fallon -- who grows more California by the minute, as the show has temporarily relocated to the West Coast -- and guest Will Smith decided to finally give the people what they want: rapping. Well, sort of.
Following yesterday's glimpse at the first images from 'Focus' comes the first official trailer for what's being described as a con-man romance film from the guys who brought us 'Crazy Stupid Love.' In 'Focus,' Will Smith definitely seems to be playing a slick variation on Ryan Gosling's character from their previous film, and if anyone knows how to play slick and charismatic, it's Will Smith, for sure.
Last night, Jimmy Fallon officially ushered in a new era of 'The Tonight Show' and, besides a move to New York City, already made the show his own. Can you imagine Jay Leno ever doing The Humpty Dance in a "The Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing"?
Just a few weeks' time will see the late night landscape dramatically shift, as 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon finally takes the 'Tonight Show' throne from Jay Leno, and 'SNL' veteran Seth Meyers joins 'Late Night' in his wake. Fallon has tapped cinema icon Will Smith and Irish rockers U2 for his inaugural 'Tonight Show' gig, but who will join Seth Meyers on the couch?
Though it's been rumored for a while, Sony has made steps to get a 'Bad Boys 3' off the ground and is looking to hire a writer to pen a third entry in the franchise. That doesn't mean that Will Smith, Michael Bay or Martin Lawrence will return, but it's a start.
