Men In Black 3 dominates Memorial Day

HollywoodNews.com: I don’t know how much Men In Black 3 actually cost. I don’t know the details of the behind-the-scenes turmoil that shut the film down for a period so the filmmakers could frantically rewrite the screenplay. I don’t know what got removed and what got added or changed along the way. But the highest compliment that I can pay this third installment in the series is that none of the backstage drama shows. The story makes sense, there are few real plot holes, and the actors exude confidence and charm in a screenplay that balances trailer-friendly set pieces and gags with genuine storytelling and character growth.
The world may not have needed another Men In Black picture, but director Barry Sonnenfeld and writers Etan Cohen, David Koepp, Jeff Nathanson, and Michael Soccio have crafted a shockingly good one, arguably the best in the series. This is accomplished and polished popcorn entertainment that is refreshingly light on its feet. For what it’s worth, I thought the first Men In Black was somewhat overrated while Men In Black 2 was *slightly* underrated. Men In Black 3 is the first in the series that I would call almost-great.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt races through “Premium Rush” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon are enjoying awards buzz for their performances in the moving and riveting pictures “50/50” and “Take Shelter,” respectively. In January, they’ll collaborate on a thriller with no awards aspirations that, regardless, still looks like it could be a ton of fun.
“Premium Rush” stars Gordon-Levitt as a New York City bike messenger trying to keep a mysterious envelope and its contents away from a dirty cop (Shannon). Jamie Chung, Dania Ramirez and Aasif Mandvi co-star in the Columbia Pictures movie, which David Koepp (“Stir of Echoes,” “Secret Window”) directs.
Here’s the trailer. What do you think? Welcome change of pace for Gordon-Levitt?

“Premium Rush” opens Jan. 13.
