You would have thought that with the incredible success of Independence Day that there would have been at least one sequel by now, but there’s only recently been any serious talk of one.
It looks like the biggest movie of the summer has already hit theaters, even though the summer just started. Iron Man 3 is the box office juggernaut to beat this year, although we still have Star Trek Into Darkness and many other big contenders this season to come.
The whole concept of the Men in Black comics, and the first MiB movie, was pretty sweet indeed. Back in 1997, it was fresh, innovative, and a lot of fun, although my primary pet peeve was that they showed too many of the best scenes in the trailers and commercials.
There’s been talk of a sequel to Independence Day for a while. Actually two sequels, ID Forever Part I and Part II.
Colossus: The Forbin Project is a great, classic sci-fi film from 1970 that wasn’t exactly a huge hit, but it’s still a terrific flick that holds up very well.
We all hear stories about who was up for this role or that role in big movies, and how funny it would be if, say, Tom Selleck played Indiana Jones.

Will Smith is a big science fiction fan, and it’s pretty evident from two of his biggest roles, ID4 and I Am Legend.

Jamie Foxx is a great actor, his performance in Ray proved that many times over, and he will probably be just fine in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained this Christmas.
Sony Pictures has released a promotional video for its upcoming sci-fi adventure film, After Earth.
Jaden Smith has been in several major movies already, including Karate Kid and The Pursuit of Happiness.
Warner Bros. is currently developing a new movie to continue the story of I am Legend, but the studio may just have to find a way to do it without the star of the first film.
There's a prequel in the works for I Am Legend, and like a lot of prequel ideas that explain everything to audiences who apparently need their hands held with everything, it seems just a tad absurd.
So the Men in Black finally returned after a ten years hiatus.
Whenever you think about Will Smith’s career, a number of diverse projects will inevitably come to mind. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Independence Day. The Men in Black series. I Am Legend.
As you read often here on TG, everyone loves to be an armchair quarterback when it comes to genre movies.
Sony Pictures has released a new featurette for its upcoming alien invasion comedy sequel.
It's been quite some time since the last Men in Black movie, in fact, it's been quite some time since the first Men in Black, which you may recall hit theaters the same year as Titanic, 1997.
Will Smith must be on a real sci-fi kick these days, because he’s currently making After Earth for M Night Shyamalan, plus he’s got the third Men In Black coming this summer.
