"The good guys dress in black, remember that..."
Yes, Will Smith, we remember that, but did you know that the bad guys dress in yellow and have claw-tipped tentacles bursting from their palms? Hmm? We do, thanks to the new still images from director Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III (MIB3) that have been released online. While there's not a lot that seems designed to remind us of what we loved about the original Men in Black movies: the odd couple relationship between curmudgeonly old Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and his jiggy partner, Agent J (Smith), and the crazy hardware they use when wrangling the latest wackadoo alien-gone-wild.
In MIB3, the offending alien (Jemaine Clement) has more than just a little mayhem on his mind, time-tripping back to the '60s to kill young K (Josh Brolin) in the hopes of preventing the secret alien watchdog group from stopping his plans in the present. We're not sure why the elder K doesn't accompany J back in time to help save his younger self, but there's probably some sort of good explanation (guess we better rewatch Back to the Future II to brush up on the downsides of meeting yourself in another time).
Men in Black III 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). Multiple Oscar-winning makeup artist Rick Baker designed the aliens, many of which you can take a sneak peek at here and here. The cast includes Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sacha Baron Cohen, Betty White and Nicole Scherzinger.
