Men in Black 3
On the 25th of May 2012 the third Men in Black movie will hit cinemas, a full ten years after its predecessor. Will Smith and Tommie Lee Jones will be returning as Agents J and K, respectively. Barry Sonnenfield, director of the first two MIB films, will once again be director and Steven Spielberg will be returning as executive producer.
This movie will see Agents J and K travel back in time, using an Apple Store, to the 60s were they encounter K’s younger self, played by Josh Brolin. While in the past, they must stop, time travelling villain, Boris, played by Jemaine Clement, from killing young K. If K dies in the best then Earth in the present will be destroyed, for some reason. I assume it would be either because K never would have stopped some alien attack or that it would just mess up the very fabric of existence. Several celebrities of the time make cameos in the film were they are all revealed to be aliens. These include; Jimi Hendrix, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol.
The time travel angle had fans worried that it was being done as a way to replace Tommie Lee Jones, while still having his character in the film. However, we now know that both Ks will be in the movie. I’m not convinced that Josh Brolin, age 43, should play the 60s version of Tommy Lee Jones, age 64, seeing as Jones would only be in his 20s in the 60s.
The movie will be in eye popping 3D, which I’m glad about. If any movie could really benefit from being in 3D, it’s this one. The, sure to be over the top, alien attacks will look amazing as they fly straight at you through the screen. This movie will definitely be a walk down nostalgia lane, but let’s hope it picks up some new follows as well, as it will be competing against all of the big summer blockbusters.
What do you think? Are you glad they’ve resurrected this franchise? If you could time travel what time period would you visit? Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below. Also if you like this post, don’t forget to subscribe.
