Men In Black III – New Trailer6.03.12 # Trailers # 4 Comments
Will Smith is looking a bit dated and 44-year-old Josh Brolin is pretending to be a 29-year-old Tommy Lee Jones. It can only be the new Men In Black III trailer.
The creativity and imagination is still there, at least on the basis of this trailer. I suppose time travel does give it somewhere new to go, though heading into space would seem a better fit. Can’t help thinking the entire plot was devised because Tommy Lee Jones didn’t want to be there, the reality is supposedly it was Will Smith’s idea, which he put to the director ten years ago. Might the film suffer from losing the actual Lee-Jones/Smith back and forth for 90% of its running time? Hard to say, it didn’t exactly help the second movie a whole lot.
Similiarly there’s still no sign of Rip Torn as Zed, amid conflicting reports whether he’s in it. The IMDB page only lists someone else playing “Dead Zed” so there’s your clue. Rip Torn has had minor personal problems, like being arrested for drunken bank robbery, but his presence will be missed here.
I’m going to hazard a guess that, given it’s 1969, man’s landing on the moon will be a key part of the plot too. I imagine they’ve left that out of the trailer because rewritten moon history has been thoroughly covered by Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Apollo 18 in the past eight months.
Check out the teaser trailer here. The movie will be released in 3-D on May 25th around the world. Will you be seeing it?
