After the critical failure of MEN IN BLACK 2 (2002), I seriously thought that the once-lucrative MEN IN BLACK franchise is needed a complete overhaul. And now here comes the long-awaited but much-troubled third installment of MEN IN BLACK 3. The first trailer for the upcoming summer sequel, scheduled for a May 24, 2012 release is already appears online and here's the video embedded down below.
In the meantime, here's the synopsis for MEN IN BLACK 3:
Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
So the biggest question is: will MEN IN BLACK 3 a return to form that captures the lively spirit of the original version? I sure hope so...
