TRAILER: Men in Black 3 lands
13 December 2011, 19:53
Cape Town - Will Smith is still making this look good.
Ten years after the release on Men in Black II, the dapper secret agents who monitor extra-terrestrial activity on Earth return to the big screen for Men in Black III, and the teaser trailer has been released by Sony Pictures.
The new film sees Agent J (played by Will Smith) travel back in time when he discovers that his taciturn partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) may not actually exist in his timeline. After landing at the MIB headquarters some 40 years in the past, K meets J as a younger man, played by James Brolin.
Familiar trademarks of the MIB franchise remain present, including the agents' black sunglasses which they wear when activating their "Neuralizers", which work to erase the memory of ordinary citizens who have been exposed to alien activity - as well as wise-cracking aliens.
The movie also features Emma Thompson, who stars as the British Agent Oh. Men in Black will also feature the talents of Bill Hader, Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement, and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger who plays a character named Lilly.
South African actor Sharlto Copley (District 9) was also set to join the MIB3 cast, but he later announced that those plans fell through.
Men in Black III is set for release in May 2012.
