Men in Black 3 (2012)
Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Sacha Baron
Cohen, Jemaine Clement
Director: Barry Sonnefeld
U.S. Opening Date: May 25, 2012
Sony's summer of 2012 will get off to a red hot start
with an incredible new 3-D adventure for the Men in Black.
We couldn't be more excited that the original
filmmaking team responsible for the first two worldwide hits is reuniting
for this third installment.
We love where the story is taking Agents Jay and Kay
and know this new chapter will deliver a fresh fun twist for fans of the
franchise while also introducing the Men in Black to a whole new
generation of moviegoers."
2002's Men in Black II was a
lackluster, exhausted rehash and there is a
reason why a Men in Black 3 wasn’t rushed into production shortly
Sony is probably hoping that
(a) short-term nostalgia
will make audiences forget just how crap the sequel was (after all, the original Men in Black
was released in 1997 – more than a decade
(b) that the Will Smith brand will cast its usual box office magic
(c) people will go see it because it is going to be in 3-D
Point (a) is probably the same strategy the company has for
3 by the way . . .
