Sony Pictures is ready to revisit one of their lucrative properties this summer with Men in Black III, a new 3D adventure to the popular sci-fi comic book-turned-movie franchise. The plot of this installment concerns (you guessed it!) another extraterrestrial being determined to destroy the people of Earth. This, of course, forces the hip Agent J (Will Smith) and all-too-square Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) to once again team up and save the planet.
The twist to the proceedings this time around – as revealed before in the Men in Black III teaser – is that J has to travel back in time to 1969, where he gets a “new partner” in the form of a younger Agent K (Josh Brolin).
A full-length trailer for Men in Black III has been released online. It provides an early look at the humor that ensues when the generations-apart K and J have to work together to stop a crazy alien biker named Boris (Jemaine Clement) from wiping out humanity.
Have a look at the Men in Black III trailer below:
Besides Brolin doing his best Tommy Lee Jones impression, MIB3 takes advantage of its time-travel plot to add a different flavor to the standard jokes about certain celebrities and famous figures secretly being aliens or MIB employees. As you surely noted from the above trailer, the result is a threequel that still largely recycles the formula used by its predecessors.
MIB2 is widely considered to be inferior to the first Men in Black movie, but this third installment does have more going for it. Specifically, the added 3D element, improved visual effects, new acting blood in the form of Brolin.
