The production of ‘Men in Black 3′ was besieged with everything from budgetary issues to trailer issues. As in: Will Smith’s mega-trailer was forced to move off the SoHo street in Manhattan that it was parked on during shooting because of neighbor complaints. The ‘Men in Black 3′ trailer trailer doesn’t appear to be as big of a problem on first glance. The under two-minute tease reminds you of the ‘MIB’ world — aliens walk among us, Smith makes it look “gooood” — while also setting up the plot of the threequel: Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) has actually been “dead for over 40 years” (SFX: thunderclap), so Agent J (Smith) must go back in time to save him. It’s like ‘Fringe’! But without Pacey.
Starring Smith, Jones, Emma Thompson and Josh Brolin as the best Tommy Lee Jones impersonator this side of Las Vegas, ‘Men In Black 3′ (in 3D, natch) arrives in theaters on May 25, 2012.
