If you’ve got some time to kill on this busy Monday morning, perhaps it should be spent watching the first trailer for “Men in Black 3″. Given that I hated “Men in Black 2″, this one really has nowhere to go but up. From the looks of the clip embedded below, the third installment appears to be a lot stronger than its predecessor. Sadly, Josh Brolin doesn’t get much screen time here, though hopefully this problem will be corrected down the road.
Don’t know anything about the sequel? Read this:
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.
Although I’m not entirely sold on the film just yet, I am anxious to see more. “Men in Black 3″, which also stars Rosario Dawson, Emma Thompson, Gemma Arterton, Betty White, Jemaine Clement, Rip Torn, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bill Hader, and Nicole Scherzinger, opens on May 25th, 2012.
