Past and Present Divided in New Posters for Men in Black III
03.03.12 by BJSprecher
Just in case the fact that both Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin appeared with Will Smith on the last teaser poster for Men in Black III (MIB3) made it seem as if Brolin was the alien activities monitoring agency's newest recruit instead of the younger version of Jones' Agent K character, Columbia Pictures has issued new teaser posters that separate the two actors. (Hilariously, they didn't bother re-shooting a full image of Jones with gun in hand, choosing instead to simply plunk his head over Brolin's body making it seem as if he has a freakishly small hand.)
Once again directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, MIB3 finds Agent J (Smith) up against another alien threat, one that seems to be specifically targeting the MIB agency and J's longtime partner and mentor, Agent K (Jones). In order to foil the plot against K, the agency and the world, J must travel back in time and team up with the younger-but-still-grumpy K (Brolin).
MIB3 was written by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder), David Koepp (Jurassic Park), Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 3) and Michael Soccio (TV's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). The cast includes Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jemaine Clement, Sacha Baron Cohen, Betty White and Nicole Scherzinger.
