'Winter's Tale' makes 'Safe Haven' look like 'The Godfather.' It is an absurd story adapted in the most dreary way possible, with lifeless performances, dull dialogue and laughable special effects. I need to cross-reference my files, but I think it is the worst major studio release with respected actors in five years. If any of us cared about our culture at all we'd be gathering our pitchforks and storming Hollywood now.

20th Century Fox has been itching for a sequel to 'Independence Day' for a very long time, but it seems that the project has finally started moving forward (at least considering how much director Roland Emmerich has talked about it) and is scheduled to hit theaters in two years. But the project has been dealt a blow as Will Smith has decided against returning for 'Independence Day 2.'

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.

We hope you like yourself some Michael B. Jordan. The actor, who is rightly earning raves for his role in 'Fruitvale Station,' has been attached to just about every upcoming franchise in Hollywood including 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the 'Fantastic Four' reboot and a 'Rocky' spinoff.
Well, now Jordan has found himself at the center of another big rumor - one that would have him starring in 'Independence Day 2' as Will Smith's son.

'Independence Day 2': Will Smith to Return After All?

The last time director Roland Emmerich talked about 'Independence Day 2,' original franchise star Will Smith was not going to be involved. At all. He was "too expensive," a "marquee name" who would be "too much." But a few months (and some time to think about the bomb that was 'After Earth') can make all the difference in the world -- it looks like Smith may end up joining the highly anticipated sequel after all.

'After Earth' Review

Seventeen summers ago, Will Smith gave us the catch phrase "welcome to Earth" and then punched an alien in the face. This time he's the invading alien (kinda) and his new line "this is Earth" is much more doom and gloom than swagger. An international icon, father and potentially the next great crazy celebrity, Will Smith is finally ready to pass the baton to his son Jaden.
But it isn't a baton he's using in 'After Earth' (an original sci-fi film based on a story of Smith's own creation) but a C-40 Cutlass – a doohickey kinda like Darth Maul's lightsaber, which springs out different blades depending on what you need. Actually, we never quite know how the Cutlass in 'After Earth' works, but it is one of a number of really nifty gizmos that populates the half-baked mythos of this film.

Granted, it's the beginning of Memorial Day weekend, but some things are simply too incredible to ignore. Guesting on BBC's 'The Graham Norton Show,' Hollywood icon Will Smith surprised the crowd with an impromptu performance of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air' theme with his son Jaden Smith, DJed by Jazzy Jeff, but that wasn't the last of it, oh no! Carlton himself, Alfonso Ribiero, took the stage and the results are not unusual to be loved...by anyone.
