What happens when you take two of the charismatic, beautiful stars of Thor: Ragnarok and team them up in Sony’s blockbuster sci-fi comedy franchise Men in Black? Turns out you get the absolute minimum amount of effort from everyone involved, and the most fun you’ll have is seeing how long you can last before you fall asleep. Watch the Men in Black: International Honest Trailer below for some more jabs at the expense of and MiB movie that’s somehow worse than Men in Black II.
After taking a look back at this humorless debacle with absolutely zero effort put into creating a compelling and entertaining story, it should come as no surprise that director F. Gary Gray wanted to leave the production,. Hell, I wanted to leave theaters when I gave it a chance, and I will definitely leave it in the bargain bin whenever I see it in stores.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson made for a great duo in Thor: Ragnarok, and the two have solid comedic chops. But here, there’s not a single thing they say that’s funny. But they do give each other thumbs up a lot. Kids love getting thumbs up, right?
By the way, we weren’t joking about making a bet with your friends to see who can stay awake longest while watching this movie. The twist is that everyone who falls asleep actually wins, and everyone who stays awake will never get that time back. Lesson learned. Can we get that Men in Black and 21 Jump Street crossover back from the dead?
Children's programming from seven countries nabbed awards announced on the International Emmys website and via social channels, rather than on stage at Cannes as in past years.
The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Tuesday announced the 2020 International Emmy Kids Awards online and via social channels rather than on stage in Cannes after MIPTV was canceled amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
"We decided to keep the winners' announcement for the same day the awards ceremony would have been held in Cannes,” said International Academy president Bruce L. Paisner in a statement. MIPTV organizer Reed Midem on March 3 confirmed that this year's MIPTV market, scheduled for March 30 to April 2, would not take place.
Despite that cancellation, the International Emmy Kids competition isn't the only event to go online. MIPTV is also staging a scaled-down virtual market as Reed Midem hosts online presentations and on-demand screenings of this year's top titles.
The winning programs for the latest International Emmy Kids competition are from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Norway, the Netherlands and the U.K.
They include the Dutch series Floor Rules earning the International Emmy Kids for best series, and the BBC and CBBC series Jacqueline Wilson's Key winning for best miniseries.
And the British series Zog won for best animation.

Since 2008, Disneynature has released near a dozen and a half documentaries that focus on various ecosystems and the creatures who inhabit them. Traditionally, these movies arrive in theaters around Earth Day. But this year, Disney is bringing nature into your home with two new feature-length Disneynature documentaries arriving on Disney+ this week.
Elephant shines a light on an African elephant named Shani and her son Jimo as they make the journey across the Kalahari Desert. Meanwhile, Dolphin Reef heads into cooler territory under the sea to follow Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who is on the cusp of growing up.
Disneynature Elephant and Dolphin Reef Trailer
Elephant is narrated by Meghan Markle and directed by Mark Linfield & Vanessa Berlowitz while Dolphin Reef is narrated by Natalie Portman and directed by Alastair Fothergill & Keith Scholey. Both of the documentaries feature stunning footage of these creatures, ranging from the dusty, arid deserts marched through by elephants as they head to a green haven to the deep blue sea, rife with life across the ocean floor and all sorts of fish scurrying about.
These nature documentaries are a nice break from the rest of the offerings in the streaming world, especially since we’re supposed to be staying home as often as we can. We’re not likely to encounter elephants and dolphins very easily even when we’re out and about, so this will be a real escape to another place in the world.
Elephant and Dolphin Reef both hit Disney+ on April 3, 2020.
“Elephant” follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd make an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert. Led by their great matriarch, Gaia, the family faces brutal heat, dwindling resources and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.
“Dolphin Reef” dives under the sea to frolic with some of the planet’s most engaging animals: dolphins. Created with Disneynature’s signature storytelling style, the film introduces Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depends on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But Echo has a tough time resisting the many adventures the ocean has to offer.
