Jada Pinkett Smith Says She Wishes Those Rumors about Her and Husband Will Smith Being Swingers Were True
Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith will celebrate 20 years of marriage in December. And throughout their time together, the two have heard countless rumors about their relationship.

But there’s one rumor in particular that has Pinkett Smith stumped: that she and Will are swingers.

During a visit to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday, the 45-year-old mother of two opened up about the gossip, telling Cohen, “That’s the craziest one! It’s constant.”

Pinkett Smith dispelled the claims — but in a way that showed she isn’t offended by them. “I’m like, ‘Yo, I wish.

Jada Pinkett Smith Reacts to People Calling Her and Will Smith ‘Swingers’: ‘Yo, I Wish!’
Jada Pinkett Smith has heard just about every rumor when it comes to her lengthy marriage to Will Smith! The 45-year-old actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Thursday, with her Girls Trip co-star, Queen Latifah, where she dispelled one particular rumor.

When a caller asked her about the craziest thing she’d ever heard about her family, Jada replied, “That Will and I are swingers. It’s constant.”

But she doesn’t seem to take offense to the false claims, adding, “And I’m like, ‘Yo, I wish!’”

The couple has been together for 23 years, but Jada didn’t have any tips on keeping the romance hot when host Cohen asked.

“I don’t know. I mean, I’m baffled, really,” she quipped. “Will and I just have amazing chemistry on a lot

Tommy’s Honour review: Dir. Jason Connery (2017)

Tommy’s Honour review: Jason Connery directs this film about Tom and Tommy Morris, father and son pioneers of professional golf.

Tommy’s Honour review, Andrew Gaudion.

The game of golf, beautiful to some, tedium for others, is not something that has ever truly translated all that well to the big screen. It is a hard sport to make compelling, often resulting in melodramatic, yet earnest titles such as The Legend of Bagger Vance or Tin Cup, or the more outrageous (see Happy Gilmore or Caddyshack). Jason ‘Son of Sean’ Connery’s Tommy’s Honour falls in the first camp; a well-intentioned and charming film that realises the limitations of golf on screen so it does its best to keep your interest through the story and the characters themselves. It’s cloying, heavy-handed, but ultimately very easy to fall for. Apologies in advanced for the terrible golf puns.

Lunchtime Poll: What Cartoon Should Come With a Trigger Warning?

In last weekend's most hilarious Golden Globes presentation, Kristen Wiig & Steve Carell equated Fantasia and Bambi with utterly traumatic childhood experiences. Which begs the question...

What cartoon sends you spiralling into depression? 

Jose: Dumbo! As a giant eared child, it brings back so many traumas. 

Eric:  Dumbo.  When caged Mama's trunk reaches for Dumbo's trunk: merciless!

Nick: The Legend of Bagger Vance.

Kim: Toy Story 3 was a pretty traumatic viewing experience for me; I came out of the theatre with my eyes almost swollen shut from crying. (The holding hands when they all thought they were going to die, you guys!) If I harken back to a movie that sent me off the edge as a kid, I'm going to go with The Secret of Nimh. I know it Ends happily, but that movie is Dark. 

Jorge:  Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle throws me into a deep pit of out-of-body melancholy.

7 Films New To Netflix to Watch In December 2016, Including ‘Animal House’ and ‘Waking Life’

  • Indiewire
Next month, Netflix has a wide variety of films — modern to classic, animated to live action, Oscar winners to romantic comedies — and we’ve picked seven that you should watch once they’re made available on the streaming service. Enjoy.

Read More: 7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In November 2016, Including ‘Boyhood’ and ‘The Jungle Book

1. “National Lampoon’s Animal House” (available December 1)

John Landis’ 1978 classic college comedy follows the rowdy Delta Tau Chi fraternity’s battle to remain on campus after they provoked the ire of the conniving Dean of the college. Features John Belushi in his most anarchic performance, toga parties, and sing-a-longs to “Louie Louie” and “Shout!”

2. “Waking Life” (available December 1)

Richard Linklater’s 2001 film “Waking Life” examines a bevy of philosophical issues — the nature of dreams, the limitations of consciousness and the meaning of life — in a surreal, rotoscoped dreamscape that demands the viewer’s mind to take flight.

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

  • LRM Online
I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star.

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing.

Will Smith is very sorry for tricking you into seeing 'Wild Wild West'

Will Smith is very sorry for tricking you into seeing 'Wild Wild West'
Did you pay good money from your weekend job at Jamba Juice to see the universally-loathed 1999 adaptation of Wild Wild West, which one contemporary critic called “extremely stupid and incompetent” and another deemed a “colossal waste of talent”? If the answer is “yes,” then Will Smith is very, very sorry about that. In a roundup of the actor’s Tuesday talk at the Cannes Lions marketing conference (a.k.a. “the only truly global meeting-place for branded communications professionals to connect, share and discover,” whew!), THR reports that Smith “repeatedly brought up 1999's Wild Wild West as a personal low point,” and they aren’t kidding. Though the superstar has been involved in other notable stinkers such as The Legend of Bagger Vance and After Earth, he clearly holds a special place of unquenchable scorn in his heart for the millennial stinker, which saw him starring opposite such other slumming talents as Kevin Kline,

The Bourne Identity: the battle to make the first film

facebook

twitter

google+

It was the spy thriller that revitalised the genre. But the production of 2002’s The Bourne Identity was far from an easy one...

Like so many budding filmmakers of his generation, Doug Liman got his start in movies by fiddling with his father's Super 8 camera. Then aged eight, Liman "Picked it up, started making movies with it, and never stopped."

By the time he'd reached his early 30s, Liman's ambitions had finally paid off. His films Swingers and Go, released in 1996 and 1999, were made cheaply and recouped healthy profits. Urgent and effervescently told, they were the product of a young, talented filmmaker on the rise. Liman's rising profile soon saw him land the kind of deal that a few dozen other hopefuls would have sold their souls for - Universal signed him up to make a film based on Robert Ludlum's spy thriller, The Bourne Identity.

Watch Jordan Spieth Crush His Happy Gilmore Impression

It.s not too often that Jordan Spieth gets mentioned on a movie site. But when the pro golfer decided to pay homage to cinema.s most famous golfer, we simply had to doff our cap to him. Those of you who are hoping the 22-year-old world number one made a reference to The Legend Of Bagger Vance will be severely disappointed, because, instead, he performed a tee-shot just like Adam Sandler.s Happy Gilmore.

‘Concussion’: Will Smith’s Career as Box Office Star and Oscar Nominated Actor

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Will Smith has been a major box office earner for nearly two decades, but recent years have seen some low points in the star’s career, with 2012’s Men in Black 3 and 2013’s After Earth both underperforming. Though the star is known primarily for big summer blockbusters, he has received recognition from the Academy for his work in serious dramas.

This year, with the release of the controversial football-centered film Concussion, Smith is hoping to reassert himself as a serious actor and garner further attention from Oscar. With a Christmas release slated for the film, however, it will have stiff competition at not just the box office, but for awards season momentum as David O. Russell‘s Joy, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight, Alejandro G. Iñárritu‘s The Revenant, and Adam McKay‘s The Big Short are all opening that week with big Oscar potential.

Watch Matt Damon Perform All of His Movies in 8 Minutes
The Late Late Show with James Corden has only been on the air for just over six months, but in that short amount of time, new host James Corden has given movie fans a new reason to tune in, aside from interviews with the biggest stars. The host has a running segment entitled Role Call, where his guests such as Tom Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger act out all of their biggest hits (and some of their flops) in a short amount of time. Last night, Matt Damon stopped by the late night program to promote his sci-fi drama The Martian, in theaters October 2, where he became the latest star to act out his entire film career in just eight short minutes.

With the help of some CGI backdrops, props and a string of bizarre costumes, Matt Damon and James Corden played out a number of rapid-fire scenes, starting with Good Will Hunting,

Box Office Report: Chappie Has Crappy #1 Opening

After one of the biggest winters in box office history, audiences unexcited by new releases left the movie theatres empty on one of the poorest March weekends in recent memory. Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi flick Chappie led the weekend with an estimated $13.3 million – mediocre by the genre’s standards and a far haul from the director’s two previous hits. Its opening was 55% lower than his 2013 flick Elysium ($29.8 million) while the Johannesburg-set film made less money in its first three days than District 9 made on its opening day ($14.1 million).

Despite recent news that Blomkamp would help to revitalize the Alien franchise, few were excited about the director’s latest. A muddled marketing campaign that failed to set a tone of whether Chappie was a sci-fi comedy or thriller, mixed with poor reviews, ensured that the genre’s fans hesitated to give this one a shot.

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after

‘Midnight Rider’ Location Manager: No Plan “To Film A Scene On Active Railroad Tracks”

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Midnight Rider location manager Charles Baxter today denied having anything to do with the railroad trestle shoot on the set of the Gregg Allman biopic, which was the setting of the February 20 death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones. In fact, in a court filing made by his lawyer Kirk Schroeder on Friday (read it here), Baxter revealed publicly for the first time that he was unable to get permission from property owner Csx to conduct filming on the trestle. Baxter also added that he did not plan to film on active railroad tracks and that he was not present at the shoot where Jones was killed and other crew members injured. The Georgia-based location manager denies retaining responsibility for selecting shooting locations. He is also seeking an out of recovery due to workers’ compensation laws, saying all the injuries sustained were due to other people’s actions, not his.

'Wild Wild West', 15 Years Old and I've Still Never Seen It

In 1999, Barry Sonnenfeld's Wild Wild West hit theaters. It had the twelfth largest opening that year and was banking on the rising star that was Will Smith after he made Bad Boys, Independence Day and Men in Black. The film was, in fact, the movie Smith made after turning down The Matrix... perhaps it was the $170 million budget versus the $63 million the Wachowskis were playing with, but whatever it was, it seemed Wild Wild West was discussed just as much as The Matrix fifteen years ago, though for entirely different reasons. With that $170 million, Wild Wild West went on to gross only $222 million worldwide, split almost evenly between domestic and foreign markets. Reviews were dreadful and all I can remember was that title song blasting on the radio every five minutes and I never ended up seeing the movie, which ended up becoming the 17th highest grossing movie of

Will Smith to Star in Selling Time

Will Smith to Star in Selling Time
We've got all the Will Smith news that's fit to print! While he may or may not be heading up ID 2, Smith will be returning to his sci-fi roots in the upcoming thriller Selling Time. The After Earth actor is reportedly attached to star in the 20th Century Fox movie in which the protagonist can revisit the worst day of his life in exchange for his life expectancy being lowered seven years. Seems like a small price to pay to, say, bail out of The Legend of Bagger Vance in time.
