Here come the Men in Black in the first trailer for MIB3

Dec. 12, 2011by: Mike Sampson

MEN IN BLACK III has had all kinds of problems. Script problems, budget problems, giant-f*cking-trailer problems...but as we've seen in the past, all those problems won't mean a hill of beans if MIB3 is actually a good film.

Now, I have no inside knowledge that MIB3 is a good film - it's a mess by most accounts. But this new teaser trailer will probably have fans of the franchise anxious to see how the trilogy ends.

It's mostly a lot of beats from the first two films - funky guns, Will Smith sassin' people, weird aliens - until we learn that Tommy Lee Jones is dead (?) and Will Smith must go back in time to figure out what happened. And in about two seconds at the very end of the trailer (I won't spoil the gag here) the movie looks like it could work.

Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

well this trailer makes the film look pretty cool! I guess we will see, and so far it seems Josh Brolin plays a pretty convincing K.

1 was fantastic, 2 was utter shite, so the jury's out on this one. I'm hoping for the best though. And yes, the angles, close-ups and effects are terrible. Also, Will looks a little too old for the stupid faces he still makes, but I guess I'm there either way. I just REALLY hope it isn't as bad as 2...

Rarely do I lean toward aggression but I really want to punch Will Smith in the face after seeing this.... in every scene he's got this obnoxious smug or 'Ain't I cute?' expression... not feeling this... should have stopped after the excellent first one.

Does look better then the second.
And credit where it's due, Brolin as a young Tommy Lee Jones couldn't be better casting.

I have to admit that I didn't expect much, but it looks better than the second, and Josh Brolin looks like a young Lee Jones.

Looks better than 2...

And even part 2 trailer sucked. So I'm all about this. The make up looks good to convince me that it hasnt been almost 10 years since the black suits were around. Now... where's is the new song by Will Smith??

Looks good so far. Then again, the second one probably looked good from the trailer too.

dont know how to feel

I loved MIB growing up and the first movie will always bring be back. But I HATED the second one and how commercial and over the top they went with it, I just hope this one avoids the same problems.
As long as they let the real sci-fi elements come through and not try and make it a comedy with some sci-fi thrown in then it should hopefully be good.

also on a side note, these really wide close ups of the characters faces is really unsettling to me, am I the only one?

Recycle city. Even J can't "make this look good." Can't imagine I won't end up seeing it though.

Not that it's saying much, but it looks a whole lot better than MiB 2. I'm looking forward to it.

Well, I was skeptical, but this actually looks like it could be decent. Fingers crossed.

Not sure what to think. I liked the first movie, but I haven't seen the second. Can't say I'm that excited, but it could be fun.

Brolin is perfect casting.

LOVE the first move. HATE the second movie. The graffiti alien and Josh Brolin's spot-on impression are enough to give me hope. But given the track-record, I still withhold judgment overall. Kinda wish Will Smith wasn't doing his same-old shtik here, because it feels like he's aged out of it.

At first I was like T___T

But then everything went better than expected.

I'm ready for some (and I can't believe I'm saying this) old school Will Smith.

I'm disappointed in you Mr. Brolin. You were once a promising actor with No Country then you did Jonah Hex and now this shit. A sequel that did not need to exist. Time Travel?! Seriously?!

No Country for Old Men

Brolin really paid attention on the set of No Country for Old Men.

I enjoyed the first, couldn't stomach the second, so I'm hoping this at least falls somewhere in between.

I definitely want to see this! I loved the first two MIB movies and this could be the first time in a while where I might be able to enjoy a Will Smith movie.

You make it sound as if Austin Powers was the first to use time travel. By that logic, it also "borrowed the time travel crap" from Back to the Future and Bill & Ted.

Yeah, I wouldn't credit any other movie that involves time travel. Austin Powers 2 or 3 is what came to mind first...

Being a massive fan of the first two...

Seeing Will and Tommy back together sends me back to when I was 7 and I saw the first movie with my Dad in the theatre. Absolutely loved it and can't wait!
