Well, the ‘Men in Black‘ franchise is officially back, but it’s missing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. This new ‘Men in Black: International‘ is reportedly a sequel, spin-off and remake all rolled into one.
Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth star in the movie as Agents H and M. Liam Neeson plays the head of the London branch of the alien investigation agency Men in Black. Emma Thompson will be reprising her role as O, the head of the American branch.
“The film has Agent H and new recruit Agent M getting caught up in a case with global implications as a murder mystery turns into something much, much bigger than they anticipated. The story reportedly has them traveling around the world in order to solve the case.”
In addition to the stars listed above, Men in Black: International will also feature Rebecca Ferguson and Kumail Nanjiani.
This kinda feels like a ‘Jumanji‘ situation. It’s basically a completely different film, so you can’t really treat it as a sequel. They’re trying to avoid direct comparisons, and that’s a smart move.
Will it have the same success? It’s impossible to know, but this trailer does not make me hopeful.
Check it out below. The film will be released June 14, 2019.
