I kinda like it. Sure, it’s getting a little repetitive now and Will Smith is basically playing a cliche of himself (“Now that’s what I’m talking about!”), but Josh Brolin as a young Tommy Lee Jones, with the pitch-perfect inflection and everything, is what I’m talking about. (Ahem.) Overall, I like this new trailer for Barry Sonnenfeld’s sci-fi sequel. I know, I know, the second movie was utter garbage, but it was still entertaining. I mean, it wasn’t as if the first movie was a masterpiece, right? Besides the premise, the franchise has always felt like a bad rushed job to me, with way-too-shoddy CGI for a big-budget studio event movie. But the films have always been breezy and insubstantial, and I’ve always had a soft spot for them. In any case, check out the second, full trailer for “Men in Black 3”.
In part 3, Will Smith’s Agent J goes back in time to save the world from an alien invasion. He encounters a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and they team up. Goofy shenanigans, usually involving goofy looking aliens, we presume, ensue.
Also starring Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Tommy Lee Jones, Bill Hader, Nicole Scherzinger, Jemaine Clement, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
