HOLLYWOOD (WWJ) – The long wait for “Men In Black 3” is finally over – and just in time for the long Memorial Day holiday weekend! If you’re a Will Smith fan (and who isn’t!), you’ll definitely want to check out Men In Black: 3. Smith is known for producing holiday blockbusters, and chances are he’ll stay true to form this time around as well.
It’s been 10 years since Men In Black: II, and 15 years since the original Men In Black appeared in theaters. In this latest installment, original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reunite, and are joined by Josh Brolin.
Smith, of course, reprises his role as Agent J, and Jones returns as Agent K, while Brolin stars as the younger Agent K. Agent J meets the younger Agent K when he travels back in time, soon after he discovers that K’s life is in danger, and to protect the Earth from being invaded.
The chief antagonist in Men In Black 3 is Boris the Animal, played by Jemaine Clement. Boris has been imprisoned for over 40 years at the Lunar Max prison facility on the Moon. He escapes with the help of his girlfriend, Lily, played by former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. And once Boris is a free man, he’s intent on changing the course of history – which, of course, is where the time travel comes in.
Also starring in Men In Black 3 are Emma Thompson, as Agent O; Alice Eve as young Agent O; and Michael Stuhlbarg as Griffin, an alien with precognitive powers, and whose help proves invaluable.
Men In Black 3 is executive produced by Steven Spielberg and G. Mac Brown. It’s directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.
