    After scoring a surprisingly solid financial return for “Men In Black 3,” Warner Bros. had tapped that film's director Barry Sonnenfeld to helm the Dwayne Johnson-starring graphic novel adaptation “Lore” because hey, why not? After clashing with the studio over the budget, Sonnefeld has dropped out ...

    Review: 'Men In Black 3' Is A Surprisingly Decent Return To Form For The Flagging Franchise

    Much has been made of the herculean efforts it took to get “Men in Black 3” to the big screen – the constant rewrites, the lengthy hiatus, Will Smith’s giant trailers pissing off much of lower Manhattan – so the mere fact that “Men in Black 3” is watchable at all is something of a pleasant surprise....
