Men In Black 3
has released a trio of new clips to generate interest ahead of the sci-fi sequel’s big release at the end of the month.
The new film sees Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reunited as Agents J and K, although not for very long, as K soon goes missing, forcing J to travel back in time to find out what’s happened to him. Waiting for him there is a younger version of K, played by Josh Brolin, who just happens to boast a cracking impression of Jones.
Two of the three clips are fairly heavy on action, the first showing J and K using their blasters with deadly accuracy, and the second featuring those strange motorbike thingies you might have spotted in the trailer. Sandwiched in between those is a more talky scene between Smith and the unsmiling Brolin.
Take a look at the new clips below…
While we weren’t exactly crying out for another instalment in the Men In Black franchise, this does at least look as though it’s managed to recapture the blend of humour and action that made the first movie such a success.
Brolin seems a particularly canny addition, serving up the perfect deadpan foil to Smith's scattergun clowning. We’ll see whether or not the whole thing manages to gel, when Men In Black III opens in the UK on 25 May 2012.
