Here is the trailer for the Men In Black reboot, with Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson
Liam Neeson is going to rap the theme song
Men In Black is great. A slick, fast-paced blockbuster, with Will Smith at his peak-movie star charm, which is effortlessly rewatchable.
Men In Black II, however, was pretty awful. And Men In Black III - damn, I forgot that film ever came out.
Anyway, no franchise ever really dies, so there is a new MIB movie on the way next year - Men In Black: International. And the trailer has just dropped.
It is sort of both a remake and a sequel at the same time - it's set in the same world, but there's no Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones to be seen (Some familiar aliens do pop up in the trailer though).
Instead, Liam Neeson and Chris Hemsworth star as Agents H and M (in no way affiliated with the high street retailer), with Emma Thompson playing their boss.
Tessa Thompson takes the Will Smith role, as the new recruit introduced to the fold.
Other big names in the cast include in Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, and Rafe Spall.
It is directed by F Gary Gray, the man behind Friday, Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious.
A poster has also been released:
The official synopsis reads:
The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest, most global threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.
While this new movie might seem an unexpected direction for the franchise to go in, it could have been a lot stranger: at one point a Men In Black meets 21 Jump Street crossover was being worked on.
MIB International is out June 14th, 2019.
