Men In Black 3: New trailer for ‘the other’ comic book movie of the summer...
A lack of theatrical costumery (arguably) helps most people to forget that Men In Black was an adaptation of an old comic book by Lowell Cunningham & Sandy Cunningham. Through a series of buy outs the series is now owned by Marvel Comics; who are producing their own film The Avengers (absolutely NOT Marvel Avengers Assemble, bah) as well as licensing Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man. The final big comic book movie of the summer is WB’s / DC Comics’ The Dark Knight Rises.
Men In Black was seen as a big breath of fresh air, way back in 1997. A clever blend of traditional and CGI effects the film found a winning combination in the pairing of up and coming star Will Smith and Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones. Director Barry Sonnenfeld was on top of his game (unfortunate that didn’t last) and the writing was snappy and energetic. At the time critics were even heard to call for a sequel.
Unfortunately Men In Black II wasn’t as good as the original, nor in the same class if truth be told. However hope springs eternal as the cast remain top drawer and this story appear stop offer something fresh and original, much as the original film did.
“In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind. The film is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. The screenplay is written by Etan Cohen, based on the Malibu Comic by Lowell Cunningham. The producers are Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, and the executive producers are Steven Spielberg and G. Mac Brown.”
““Will, it's been quite a while since the last MIB and you have performed in a number of diverse films since. How difficult has it been getting back into the agent J role after so long? (submitted by Chris Zinke)
Will Smith: Not difficult at all! After you play a character twice, it's almost like riding a bike. A pretty black bike.
Will, If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and why? (submitted by Anonmember Silva)
WS: Ancient Egypt — so I could prove that aliens didn't build the pyramids!
Where are the "women in black"? (submitted by Lisa Herring)
WS: You gotta see the movie! There are some very prominent Women in Black... and they look hot, too.
Did you suggest having a younger Will Smith like Tommy's character in this film? Why or why not? (submitted by Movie Guy)
WS: I could answer that question... but then I would be forced to neuralyze you. SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
How do you feel about MIB coming out in 3D? (Submitted by Annie Cruz)
WS: I just saw it in 3D -- and it looks INSANE. It's the type of movie that is just supposed to be in 3D. Makes me want to go back and do the other two in 3D!
What are we going to see in the third instalment that we haven't seen in the first two? (Submitted by Amber Lee)
WS: This movie has not only aliens, but time travel -- so it sets the movie in a time and place that gives it a whole new look and feel and brand-new situations that are so much funnier because of the time period. I really believe this is the best of the three.
How does it feel getting back in those sunglasses and suit again? (submitted by Catherine Lencione)
WS: I was really surprised that, after all these years, I STILL make this look good!
What's your favourite part about being in the MIB movies? (submitted by Damian Corbet Dauphin)
WS: I love that "Men in Black" is not like any other kind of movie. There's no other film I've ever seen that reminds me of "Men in Black." "Men in Black" is very special and unique, and I think it will go down in cinematic history.”
So here we go...
