A first trailer has arrived for summer sequel
Men In Black 3
, and though light on action, Will Smith gets plenty of scope to make with the funny.
The new footage shows agents J (Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) continuing their ongoing business of rounding up rogue extra-terrestrials before K suddenly and unaccountably goes missing. Naturally, the only way J can find out what’s happened to his partner is by travelling back in time.
Check out the new trailer below…
There are some nice touches on display here (we particularly like the modification made to the Columbia logo) and it feels like enough time has passed for Will Smith’s smartmouth shtick to seem charming again, rather than aggravating.
We also like the look of Josh Brolin as a young Tommy Lee Jones. He’s only in the trailer for a second or two, but it seems like he’s got the whole gravel-voiced, granite-faced thing down to a tee.
Men In Black 3 arrives in UK cinemas on 25 May 2012.
