The new trailer from Sony Pictures shows us just what Men in Black could have been – if it didn’t have Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones and it was based in … London. It looks exactly as bad as you’d expect.
The special effects look well done, the storyline is somewhat interesting, but moving it to England and stripping it of its central characters is franchise suicide.
Honestly, when the trailer first popped into my inbox, I thought “MIB International” would be a new SciFi Channel or USA series, but nope, it’s just proof that Hollywood is out of ideas and needs to milk a dead cow for revenue.
Who knows, trailers don’t always give the right impression about a movie and this is the first one, but as of right now, this is a “rent on Amazon Prime” kinda flick for me.
Directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Liam Neeson, with Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Rebecca Ferguson, and Emma Thompson appearing in supporting roles.
MIB International hits theaters in the summer of 2019.
