    Watch: Josh Brolin Nails His Tommy Lee Jones Impression In First Trailer For 'Men In Black 3'

    Of all the big tentpole pictures of next year, none seems to have had a more troubled production than "Men in Black 3." The first film in the series, in 1997, was an enjoyable sci-fi comedy, but it took five years to get a sequel together,  and when "Men In Black 2" hit thea...

    Scott Free Working On Christmas Film From 'Black Death' Director, Emma Thompson Rom-Com & More

    Ridley and Tony Scott (pictured above, with Jerry Bruckheimer) are prolific enough as directors -- the former currently shooting his return to the sci-fi world that turned out his best film, with the intriguing "Prometheus," the latter coming off his best film in years, the hugely enjoyable actioner "Unstoppable." But they're also hugely prolific producers, through their Scott Free banner, being behind not only their own projects, but also those for other filmmakers, like "In Her Shoes," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "The A-Team" and "Cyrus," as well as TV work like "The Good Wife" and "The Pillars of the Earth...
