The latest “Men in Black 3” trailer has hit the web, and it shows that the new movie will have everything the previous two “Men in Black” films had and more. Fighting against crazy ridiculous aliens? Check. Random “celebrity” Men in Black appearances? Check. Witty banter between Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones or Josh Brolin, depending). Double check.
It’s clear from this new trailer — and everything else that’s been released in promoting the upcoming film — that “Men in Black 3” is going to stick to the tried-and-true formula that made the series so popular when it came out back in the ’90s. So don’t expect any darkness or edginess in this movie that wasn’t in the first two. This time, it’s all about saving the world from an invading alien force and rescuing Agent K from non-existence. Because, you know, there are some secrets that even the universe doesn’t know anything about.
This trailer includes a lot of two things: fighting aliens, and Andy Warhol. Turns out that Warhol (played by Bill Hader) is an active member of the Men in Black back in the 1960s, but that won’t stop J from getting pissed off at him. As for the fighting aliens, well, it’s pretty much the same deal as the previous two “Men in Black” films, and that’s why fans are excited about the newest installment in the series.
My favorite moment in the trailer came at its end, when the film finally addressed the age discrepancy between ’60s K and future K. J asks his partner how old he is, to which K answered “29.” “Yeesh,” J replied. “You’ve got some city miles on you.” It’s nice to see J not being the young blood for once.
“Men in Black 3” also stars Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Jemaine Clement and Michael Stuhlbarg. It hits theaters on May 25.
