Is it Christmas already? Yesterday we got a brand new trailer for “Men In Black 3” and today Sony Pictures has given us a whole bunch of new stills from the movie, some of which feature a first look at Jemaine Clement as the film’s main antagonist! The stills also give us a look at Alice Eve, who plays a young Agent Oh, and of course Josh Brolin, who plays a young Agent K.
“Men In Black 3″ takes place primarily in the 1960’s as Agent J (Will Smith) must travel back in time to prevent an alien assassin from deleting his friend and partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) from history. It looks to be one time traveling sci-fi adventure that we won’t soon forget. And these new photos definitely don’t say otherwise. Check them out after the jump!
Fans were intially skeptical when it was first announced that the “Flight of the Conchords” funnyman, Jemaine Clement, would be playing the big bad in the film. However, the two photos of Clement in costume prove to be surprisingly intimidating. Boris, Clement’s alien assassin, looks to be a cross between The Lone Biker of the Apocalypse, from “Raising Arizona”, and Joaquin Phoenix. Which is truly a terrifying combination when you think about it.
Another picture shows actress Nicole Scherzinger carrying what looks to be a giant cake, presumably containing some sort of key or lockpick that will enable Boris to free himself from the maximum secuirty prison in which he is being detained. Other pictures worth noting include Alice Eve carefully attaching a large device to Josh Brolin’s back and Will Smith strapped down to something that looks like it could possibly be another time machine.
Josh Brolin, who does an uncanny impression of Tommy Lee Jones, does an even better job of looking the part as made evident by these pictures, in which his stern, emotionless face shadows the Agent K that we all know and love. It’ll be interesting to see how well he’s able to play off of Will Smith’s ever-charismatic Agent J and if it will match up to the high standards that Tommy Lee Jones has set before him.
