Yes, Men in Black 3 is on its way, but has it passed its sell by date? The first film was great fun and propelled Will Smith to stardom, and the second film played off the success of the first and actually made something new, inventive, funny and exciting. Can a third film really improve on what has come before? Only time will tell, but for me personally, I hope it does turn out good. However, I worry that its time has passed.
I do look forward to seeing The Men in Black again, and I especially look forward to seeing what Josh Brolin can bring to the table, but do fans really want another Men in Black film? Let’s see what happens, and lets hope that the next piece of imagery or poster is a lot better than the tosh on offer here!
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, the film is released here in the UK on 25th May.
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.
