If there’s one thing that this weekend’s Men in Black 3 does, it’s offer a particular nostalgia. No, not for when Will Smith movies were good (Yeah, Hancock is the kind of stink that sticks around, Will. Sorry), but for when pop songs were part of the whole movie package.
Columbia Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for Men in Black 3, which puts Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back in the suits for a time-traveling adventure to save Agent K, the agency and the universe.
Agents J and K, better known as Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, appear in full MiB gear in these new images from director Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3.
Sony Pictures has debuted the teaser trailer for director Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3, which stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and Emma Thompson.
A thought occurred to me the other day: Where are the science fiction comedies? With genre crossover seeming to be one of the few ways in which genres seem to move forward in this age of big budget blockbusters dominating the movie landscape – and, to some extent, the television landscape as well, just by dint of being so important to mainstream pop culture – you’d think that special-effects-laden SF and high concept comedy would be an immediate and obvious hit with audiences, and yet… there aren’t really any. Isn’t science fiction funny?
The star of NBC’s 30 Rock says he’s left the troubled Men in Black III because “the schedule didn’t work out.” The Sony Pictures sequel has suffered production delays after it began filming without a finished script in hopes of taking advantage of millions of dollars in tax breaks.
The third installment of the blockbuster franchise has once again experienced production a delay, reportedly because of ongoing script issues.
District 9‘s Sharlto Copley has apparently continued his alien transformation since the end of his sci-fi breakthrough movie; he’s apparently going to appear as “a fast-talking Yoda-like alien” in the next Men in Black movie. And he’s not the only new cast member being rumored… Jayne/Casey!
The third Men In Black film is just weeks away from beginning production, so expect a few announcements in the coming weeks confirming new casting additions to the sequel’s already significant roster. First up? Professor Trelawney!
Will Smith has officially signed on for Men in Black 3, putting the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed Columbia Pictures sequel on course for a May 25, 2012, release.
Here they come, the Men In Black (clap clap) are coming back for a third installment, and in 3D. Because no-one remembers the horror of Jaws 3-D, apparently.
