Columbia Pictures has released two new preview clips from director Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III that seem to guarantee that, whether Agent J (Will Smith) is chumming around with '60s-era Agent K (Josh Brolin) or the present day K (Tommy Lee Jones), there's going to be plenty of action. And as we've already guessed from the early production photos and movie stills that were released, there will be plenty of new Rick Baker–designed aliens for J and K to 'splode. watch the new preview clips >> Posted 05.02.12 by BrentJS
Though EW may not quite have the "first look" at the new aliens in director Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III as the popular entertainment magazine claims to have — a Russian website posted images from multiple Oscar-winning makeup artist Rick Baker's studio several weeks ago, revealing more than a dozen "retro" aliens designed for the new movie — at least a few of the aliens are new in the images recently posted online. Plus, the image set contains new shots of Will Smith as Agent J, Josh Brolin as '60s-era Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones plays the 2012 version) and Jemaine Clement as the villainous Yaz. We also get a little insight into the look of the new aliens, courtesy of Baker himself. hear what baker said & see the new images >> Posted 04.11.12 by BrentJS
When we heard Will Smith was coming back for a Men in Black installment, we all knew what to expect, right? Smith in a black suit? Check. Smith throwing out memorable one-liners ("You know, I don't have no problem pimp slapping the shiz-nit out of Andy Warhol")? Check. Smith singing the movie's theme song? Wait, where is Smith's MIB III song?
Despite rumors that Smith would be returning to the rapping game for MIB III it looks like Smith will not be rocking his Ray-Bans in a new MIB song. So who did Sony get to record the theme song for MIB III? Pitbull.
While no one will mistake Smith for being a particularly good songwriter, his theme songs were at least funny and catchy. We can't say the same for Pitbull's "Back in Time." listen to Pitbull's song >> Posted 03.26.12 by Chris
The last time Agent J (Will Smith) had to save his friend and mentor, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), it was merely from living a life of quiet obscurity as a neuralyzed civilian postmaster in a small town in Massuchesetts in Men in Black II. In the upcoming sequel, Men in Black III, the stakes are much higher, with both K's life and the very existence of the MIB organization on the line, requiring J to travel back in time to save the day.
We've already seen several images of what K looks like back in 1969 — he looks just like Josh Brolin! — and now, thanks to Russian entertainment site StarkIndustries.ru, we have a chance to see what the aliens looked like back then, as well (apparently, B movies of the '50s and '60s got it right). We also get to see a slightly more alien-looking Jemaine Clement as the villainous Yaz. check out the images >> Posted 03.25.12 by BrentJS
In terms of audience anticipation, all that Men in Black III has to do is not repeat the mistakes of 2002's Men in Black II and the third installment can be considered some kind of success. It's simple — be more like the first Men in Black and no one will remember how the movie went on hiatus so that the script could be finished and the other production delays that have looked like a cause for alarm for a big-budget production. "We knew starting the movie that we didn't have a finished second or third act," director Barry Sonnenfeld recently told Empire Magazine (via The Playlist). "Was it responsible? The answer is, if this movie does as well as I think it will, it was genius. If it's a total failure, then it was a really stupid idea."
As we said before, all that Men in Black III has to accomplish is to avoid being as awful as Men in Black II was universally seen to be, and, so far, the movie's trailers look like Sonnenfeld and company has pulled it off. The key is Josh Brolin, whose uncanny impersonation of Tommy Lee Jones should prove entertaining as the 1960s version of Jones' Agent K, though it's likely that younger audiences are going to love watching Will Smith's Agent J say things like "shiznit" in the sequel's latest trailer. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.05.12 by Ryan
It's been 10 years since the last time Will Smith donned his Men in Black suit so some moviegoers might need a refresher course about the sci-fi franchise ahead of Men in Black III hitting theaters May 25.
Smith, who plays J in the franchise, answered fans' questions on Yahoo! Movies. Smith explains to one fan what's new in this second sequel.
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.
In MIB3, Agent J (Smith) discovers that history has been rewritten so that his partner K (Tommy Lee Jones) no longer exists. So J has to go back in time to 1969 and team up with the younger version of K, played by Josh Brolin. Read more of Smith's Answers >> Posted 03.04.12 by Chris
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). see the new posters >> Posted 03.03.12 by BrentJS
A new photo and poster has been revealed for comic book movie Men in Black III.
Now seen as a movie franchise for actors Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, it's easy to forge that Agents J and K began their existence in a 1990 comic book series written by Lowell Cunningham that was adapted into the massively successful first movie, Men in Black. We're sure that Sony would prefer that audiences forget about the sequel, but it is true that Men in Black II was made in 2002, though most of those that saw it weren't too happy with the effort.
Skip to ten years later and Smith and Jones are at it again, although now with Josh Brolin tagging along, playing a younger version of Jones. Men in Black III will see Smith travel back to the 1960s, a fact that the latest poster, with its tagline "back in time," is hoping to drive home. The latest photo also features Brolin, as he offers Smith a weapon from what looks to be the trunk of his car. see the full poster and photos >> Posted 02.22.12 by Ryan
Last November, the plot synopsis that accompanied the teaser trailer for The Expendables 2 revealed that two new members (Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan) would be joining the the action movie star super-group featured in the 2010 original. While Hemsworth will be more recognizable to audiences after appearing in 2010's The Last Song and, later this year, in The Hunger Games, Yu last (and only) English-language movie appearance was in 2008's Speed Racer. Luckily for Yu, the Chinese-born actress appears in both of the new photos for the Expendables 2 released by Comingsoon, either walking or crouching behind a car alongside Sylvester Stallone. see the photos >> Posted 01.17.12 by Ryan
Considering how many "spy" photos leaked out from the sets of such "top secret" productions as The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man last year, it's kind of surprising how few we've seen from director Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III (MIB3). (Or, maybe it's not surprising, considering the movie centers around a secret organization that monitors and suppresses alien activity on Earth — perhaps we've all been "neuralyzed.") Josh Brolin was spotted decked out as young Agent K, the character Tommy Lee Jones plays in the present, and we've seen a handful of action shots of Will Smith doing his thing as Agent J, but that was about it until the NZHerald published online a new set photo showing Kiwi actor Jemaine Clement dressed up as a "creepy but charming" biker, a disguise his character wears to hide his true alien form. more from Clement on MIB3 >> Posted 01.04.12 by BrentJS
