Kleenex in your pocket?  Check.  Ready to catch the first Christmas film of the year?  Check.  Now get ready to settle into that comfy reclining seat as we meet Kate (Emilia Clarke), basking in a life of making all the wrong choices, especially for a 20-something that not long ago, was very, very ill.  But, as they say, when you’re young, you think you have all the time in the world Continue reading

They’re Giving Comedy a Rewrite

“Late Night”, written by Mindy Kaling, follows an aging late night television host that has captivated the World and won countless Emmy’s, SAG’s, and Golden Globes’ over the course of her career.  Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is nothing like her television persona however.  She doesn’t know her writers, she has no desire or care for her audience, and she’s quite stubborn in her ways.  As a new staff writer with diversity is needed, a young girl named Molly (Mindy Kaling) with no experience in the industry finds-herself in Continue reading

MIB International

Starring:

Chris Hemsworth- Agent H

Tessa Thompson- Agent M

Liam Neeson- Agent High T

Emma Thompson- Agent O

Hemsworth and Thompson team up again to save the world from a new alien in the new comedy MIB International

Molly (Thompson) has always been fascinated with space and it got ramped up when she came face to face with a blue furry alien hiding in her stuffed animals.  Two mysterious men in black suits showed up to questions her parents and ending up zapping them and wiping their memories of the visit (they were neutralized). Molly was not affected and help the creature escape. Now Molly made it her goal to be the best and find the Men in Black and join them.

Molly applied to the FBI and the CIA only to be told there was no secret agency. Molly also hacked a NASA satellite to monitor alien activity and monitored the gossip papers for Alien Arrivals and departures so to trail the MIB to the base. Her plan worked and she walked in like she worked there only to be held for Agent O to interrogate.

Agent O is taken with Molly and agrees to a probationary period and makes her Agent M. Agent M is sent to London because there is a mole in MIB and she might be able to help find it.

Agent H (Hemsworth) and Agent High T (Neeson) were partners working on an Alien invasion by the Hive at the Eiffel Tower. After Agent H is blasted, he returns to Help Agent T defeat the Hive, an alien species that infiltrates the hosts body. Agent T is promoted to head of MIB London and Agent H becomes the MIB party animal instead of the ace agent he was before battling the Hive.
