Description

Triple bill of sci-fi features starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as a pair of agents tasked with keeping extraterrestrial inhabitants of Earth in check.

In 'Men in Black' (1997) New York cop James Edwards (Smith) finds himself recruited to the secret MiB agency, where he is partnered with K (Jones) and sent to investigate an alien prediction of the end of the world. Initially, the partnership doesn't gel, but with fearsome alien adversaries to take on K and J come to rely on each other.

'Men in Black 2' (2002) finds K working as a postman, unaware of his former heroics alongside Agent J. However, when J uncovers a secret alien plot organised by the seductive Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) he knows he will require the skills of his former partner to foil such a dangerous enemy.

In 'Men in Black 3' (2012) J is forced to journey back in time to the 1960s to try and rescue K, who has been assassinated with such extraterrestrial efficiency everyone on Earth appears to believe he has been dead for 40 years. With the aid of a terrifying 'time jump', J hooks up with a younger Agent K (Josh Brolin) and together the pair attempt to change the course of history.

Synopsis
In the 1950s a super-secret government agency was formed to monitor and police the activities of extraterrestrial aliens on the planet Earth. Some 40 years later a founding father of the agency, Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), finds himself with a new smart-mouthed partner fresh from the NYPD who is soon dubbed Agent Jay (Will Smith). Their first mission is to save the Earth from destruction by a giant insectlike alien (Vincent D'Onfrio) that, incidentally, drives an exterminator's truck. Armed with their matching Ray-Bans, skinny ties, and space-age weapons that Jay barely understands--he calls the Neuralyzer the "flashy thing"--the new duo begin another average day of fighting intergalactic terrorists. An amazingly hip and terribly clever movie that riffs on everything from E.T.--THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL to CASABLANCA, this Barry Sonnenfeld film is based on the equally savvy comic book by Lowell Cunningham.
Notes
Filmed in New York City and in studio (Culver City, CA).

Estimated budget: $90 million.

The film grossed more than $250 million at the domestic box office and nearly $600 million worldwide.

"...The movie makes good use of a lot of New York landmarks....[The film] deflates one sci-fi pomposity after another..."
Roger Ebert (1 Jul 1997, p.25)
Los Angeles Times
"...Wised-up and offhandedly funny....Barry Sonnenfeld is an excellent director for this point of view, and MEN IN BLACK is a blend of the strengths of his previous films..."
Kenneth Turan (1 Jul 1997, p.F1)
New York Times
"...Dryly clever....Extraordinarily ambitious, with all-star design and special-effects talent and a genuinely artful visual style..."
Janet Maslin (1 Jul 1997, p.C9)
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he leads' buddy-buddy act works a charm, Smith's mock-macho maximalism and Jones' dour minimalism deliciously contrasted."
Kevin Harley (1 Jun 2012, )
USA Today
"...The out-there premise is irresistible.... Effects master Rick Baker whips up a swell array of oddball creatures great, small and just plain strange..." -- 4 out of 4 stars

Synopsis
Reuniting director Barry Sonnenfeld with most of the original hit film's cast, MEN IN BLACK II picks up with alien-monitoring secret agent Jay (Will Smith) in a rut. Weary of the isolated life of an MiB operative, Jay continually fires new partners until MiB director Zed (Rip Torn) teams him up with the talkative pug, Frank (voiced by Tim Blaney). Together they investigate an "alien-on-alien" murder witnessed by the lovely Rita (Rosario Dawson), who Jay immediately falls for. The case eventually leads Jay and Frank to track down agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), who now works at a rural post office, completely unaware of his former life. Unfortunately, it's what Kay can't remember that may save the world from destruction at the hands of the shape-shifting alien Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle). As Jay attempts to jog the memory of the reluctant Kay, Serleena takes over MiB headquarters, building up to a big New York City showdown.

A fast-paced follow-up to the 1997 sci-fi comedy, MEN IN BLACK II sticks to its guns, offering up more action, aliens, and intergalactic weirdness. This time around Smith and characters such as Frank and the wisecracking worms are the focus, although Jones makes the most out of his screen time with his deadpan persona thoroughly intact. And, as with the first movie, MIB II features plenty of enjoyable scenes, including an underground romp involving a subway-sized alien and Frank the Dog's head-out-of-the-car-window rendition of "I Will Survive."

Synopsis
The MEN IN BLACK are back, and this time Agent J (Will Smith) must take a trip into the past in order to save both the future and his taciturn partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) in the third installment of the hit sci-fi comedy series. After 15 years of working with aliens from all across the cosmos, Agent J is sure he's seen it all. But just when he's getting the hang of the game, he learns that history has inexplicably been rewritten. In this new timeline of events, Agent K has been dead for 40 years, and Earth will soon come under attack from an extraterrestrial force with the power to claim the entire planet. Now, in order to set the past straight and head off an invasion of epic proportions, Agent J must travel back to the year 1969, when Young Agent K (Josh Brolin) was just a fresh new face on the force. But Agent J only has 24 hours to find the source of the coming catastrophe and discern how his longtime partner ties into the situation -- should he fail he'll be stuck in the past forever. Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, and Emma Thompson co-star.

"[T]he perfectly cast Brolin conveys hints of playfulness and warmth while staying true to the craggy stoicism at the character’s core."
Nathan Rabin (24 May 2012, )
Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Brolin is an excellent, unflappable replacement for Jones."
Vadim Rizov (22 May 2012, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "It has an ingenious plot, bizarre monsters, audacious cliff-hanging...and a closing scene that adds a new and sort of touching dimension to the characters of J and K."
Roger Ebert (23 May 2012, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Among the many pleasures of MEN IN BLACK 3 is the nimble efficiency with which the movie reestablishes the old MIB conventions -- all those fabulously ornate Rick Baker-designed creatures, all that Jones crustiness and Smith slickness..." -- Grade: A-
Lisa Schwarzbaum (1 Jun 2012, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[Featuring] the jewel tones of Bill Pope's appealing cinematography. Other production elements, like Danny Elfman's score, continue the winning look and feel established in the first film."
John DeFore (21 May 2012, )
Los Angeles Times
"[Sonnenfeld] has recovered some of the brashness and all of the unbridled affection for the weird, wonky otherworldly types that made the initial 1997 cosmic comedy such a kick."
Betsy Sharkey (25 May 2012, )
Rolling Stone
"What works, like comic hellfire, is the casting of Josh Brolin as the young Agent K. Brolin's take on Jones' deadpan delivery is spot-on and spectacularly funny."
Peter Travers (24 May 2012, )
USA Today
"[I]t's Josh Brolin, as the young Tommy Lee Jones, who steals MEN IN BLACK 3....He channels Jones' mannerisms, nails his Texan drawl and even rather eerily resembles the actor..."
Claudia Puig (25 May 2012, )
