The MIB 3 Teaser Trailer!

Nordling here.

I've heard a few things about the MEN IN BLACK 3 shoot - a ton of reshoots, that they never nailed down the story, problems all throughout the thing.  But I still think the premise is solid, I love the first film (even if the second film has problems) and I think it's a franchise worth seeing.  So today we have a look at the new film, and it doesn't look bad at all.  Josh Brolin looks like he's genetically spliced from Tommy Lee Jones.  Hopefully the powers that be have the film figured out because I think the teaser works.  Have a look for yourself:

MEN IN BLACK 3 opens Memorial Day.  Nordling, out.

    Not bad at all...

    by Dhaemon

    Hopefully it's good overall and better than the second one.

    by Rebel Scumb

    The first was a very solid 'ghostbusters' type adventure comedy and this looks like it could be good. Shame about the second one

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 6:24 a.m. CST

    I actually didn't mind the second one...

    by bohdi71

    Incredibly short movie tho... This trailer works great as a tease however...

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 6:24 a.m. CST

    'young' tommy lee jones will be the show stealer...


    the rest will be the troubled mess that the reports indicate, seems to me. and a 2-D graffitti alien? yeah i don't know. maybe the movie will show him to be a shape shifting ameoba or kind of lichen creature, or a colony of tiny little animals on the surface of the wall...otherwise, that's just goofy for the sake of being goofy and surprising (which it won't be, since the gag is blown by the teaser)

    Will Smith back in time?

    by gotilk

    *Aww Hell Nawwww, you did NOT just call me articulate.* Actually hope this is fun, because I actually enjoyed the last 2. Not amazing films or anything, but fun. Many hated it, but I loved the little society inside the locker.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 6:59 a.m. CST

    why call it mIB (cubed)- didn't they learn from ALIEN cubed?


    i mean, graphically, you have a 'B' that looks like a big 3 already...surprised they didn't go with that- it's so very hollywood at the moment to smash a number in the title...adding a little '3' is

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:01 a.m. CST


    by teddy_duchamp

    They pretty much show you half the film! looks good though.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:04 a.m. CST

    so Rip Torn is 'dead' because of something in the past..


    will J fix what happened? because i seriously doubt they are going to brig Rip back- he's on the shitlist right now after losing his mind repeatedly.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:05 a.m. CST

    Not a teaser, the thing is 2 minutes long.

    by Ditko

    Looks pretty much like a trailer to me. But anyway, wasnt the geekdom supposed to hate this movie because the first poster sucked or whatever? You guys are a weird bunch. I bet if Nordling had said it looks bad, you´ll all be saying the same thing!

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:08 a.m. CST

    i didn't have a problem with the poster


    i think the face looked like an ambiguous witness sketch of K

    by Jackson

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:12 a.m. CST

    Looks pretty good

    by genrefanboy

    That trailer alone almost owns MIB2. Reshoots & extended production shutdowns due to a weak script may mean we get a much better movie. Spielberg no doubt insisted on it as no-one else in Hollywood has enough star power to tell Sony its for the best. I would lowball itin the $500-600M range if its any good then $800m plus.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:19 a.m. CST

    I credit the MIB franchise with my love for pugs

    by BlaGyver

    Not kidding. I was 10 when I saw the second one (saw it first) and have wanted a pug ever since.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:20 a.m. CST


    by BlaGyver

    I would say in the upper range, yeah. It's been a few years since his last big one, but let's not forget that Will Smith really can annihilate the box office when he's not pushing his kids on us or trying to get an Oscar.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:23 a.m. CST

    Do they?

    by fxmulder35

    Enjoyed the trailer...but was wondering...does anyone work on this site on the weekends? about BORING. There's nothing to read here most of the time anymore.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:26 a.m. CST

    I just hope TLJ has a decent sized part

    by Mugato5150

    He's easily the "better half" of the duo. Part of the reason the second one sucked so much was that it spent so much time getting him back. And Rip Torn is going to at least make an appearance, isn't he? Surely they can re-animate him for a cameo at least.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 7:27 a.m. CST

    I like that the over the top goofiness from 2 is not present. It actually is taking itself a little more serious, but not stiff. There has to be a balance of some sort. So, curious where they take it.

    The first one is a classic , but I had pretty much written the series off after MIB2. What a piece of shit. This however looks like they're back on the right track.

    by Titus05

    the time jump part...the beginning of that trailer totally captured the MiB vibe and looked fantastic...then they started up with the whole traveling back in time thing and the trailer crashed and burned was that Josh Brolin's voice doing a Tommy Lee Jones impression or Josh Brolin with a Tommy Lee Jones voiceover?

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 8:40 a.m. CST

    by Tim Reuschling

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 8:54 a.m. CST

    I vote "maybe".

    by Royston Lodge

    The second MIB was destroyed by the weak-and-unfunny-as-shit villains and the stupidity of the "crisis". If they don't get the tone of the threat right, then everything else falls apart. I'm not crazy about the time-travel aspect. I woulda preferred a bigger focus on outer space. This franchise hints at ginormously powerful galactic empires ... that we never see. Time travel is no substitute for epic space opera.

    by dr_buggerlugs

    ...though the lack of TLJ deadpan comedy genius was the main reason I thought it was gonna suck, looks like Brolin is going to hijack this film wholesale.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 9:14 a.m. CST

    Yeah, they have piqued my interest

    by Terrence

    Say what you want about Big Willie, but he does his best to give you your ticket admission's worth in the flicks he does. Brolin's channeling of Jones is spot-on, and if it's consistent, I would honestly think he deserves some type of award for it.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 9:38 a.m. CST


    by asswipe

    First of all that is not Tommy Lee Jones overdubbing Brolin. Do you think they would use Tommy Lee Jones voice for the whole movie? That is clearly Brolin delivering a so so TLJ impression. Secondly, why is this this getting everyone so wet? This is going to suck about as much ass as the third installment of Meet the Fockers.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 9:46 a.m. CST

    Looks good. I'll be there opening weekend.

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    MIB was a cool action/comedy. A classic. MIB II had problems. They had to reshoot the end of the movie because the setting was on top of the World Trade Center towers. After 9/11 that had become problematic. Spiderman had a similar problem that year. They had a bank robbery scene that they had to delete from the movie. It was featured in the films teaser during the summer of 2001. The bad guys make their escape in a waiting helicopter. On their way out of NYC they get caught in a giant web stretched between the WTC towers. Like a fly. Nice visual, but it had to go. I've always given MIB II a pass because of that. At the time that they should have been editing and tweaking the movie, they were rewriting and reshooting the damn finale and the SFX! I hear the editing was then rushed to meet the release date. Comedies require timing. Rushing the post is never a good idea. Sometimes it works, but usually something gets lost. With MIB II we'll never know what the movie they intended to make would have been like. At best, maybe we a Direcor's Cut of the movie they ended up making. I guess what I'm trying to say is 9/11 destroyed thousands of lives. It changed important things and it also changed smaller things. MIB II was one of the small things. I am glad MIB3 looks good. And I'm also glad that fucker Osama bin Laden is sleeping with the fishes. Fuck him.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 9:49 a.m. CST

    it IS odd to hear so many positive reactions


    seeing as how everyone was shitting on the poster and even the idea of a third one just last week.

    Isn't Rip Torn in jail or something?

    by Inglorious Bastard

    How is everybody surprised that Rip Torn isn't in this? He plead guilty to breaking and entering, possessing a firearm while drunk and criminal mischief about a year ago.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 10:08 a.m. CST

    Looks a'ight

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Even with one line (and glower), Josh Brolin's Tommy Lee Jones impersonation seems spot-on. Like most, I found MIBII a disappointment (any episode of the surprisingly good animated series was better), and I find it odd to be making a third film a solid decade after the last one (it's not like the MIB franchise is as iconic as Indiana Jones or Star Wars), yet this trailer at least got me interested.

    What are the "reshoots" everyone is talking about? There have only been about a week of reshoots - hardly a "ton" as mentioned above and a lot less than most other films of this nature - Spider-Man is into it's 3rd or 4th week of reshoots! Looks much better than part 2. That is Brolin's voice, not TLJ.

    MiB2 was ruined in part by Johnny Knoxville and his CGI'd mini head. Thank God his days as an "actor" are over and done with. And I think Smith is a good actor when given good material, but here he looks like he's mugging and basically making faces big time.

    by Damned if I can login

    Of course, the best moments from #2 was what we saw in the trailer. Although Peter Graves and all the retro hairstyles ( afro, shag, etc) were kinda fun. But that was over within a couple minutes. Also, David Cross' role was too goofy in #2. I loved his ultra-sarcastic role from the 1st. To bad he got folded in half. Reckon we'll have to wait and see. But I'm in, if not for the theater then certainly the Blu.

    Royston - Bad Guys

    by Hoots Mon

    I thought Jermaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords is the bad guy in this. On that basis alone I'm seeing this movie. I'm hoping they're saving Jermaine for the full trailer reveal of his own. I'm pretty sure that's his voice, with American accent, on the phone to Tommy Lee Jones saying "what other secrets are there?".

    I agree with that douchebag who keeps saying "FACT!"

    by Mugato5150

    It was really bad planning to effectively "kill off" Tommy Lee Jones in the original. They had to know that they had a franchise on their hands and TLJ was obviously the best aspect of the film, despite Will Smith's shucking and jiving. But since they did write him out, going as far as changing the uniforms and the car and adding Ms hotass Fiorentino, they should have stuck with that instead of writing all that off and spending half of the next movie bringing TLJ back. BUT, having said that, this looks decent. Why it took a decade to make it happen I don't know. Like I said, TLJ is the best part of the franchise and I hope he has more than a cameo.

    Remember Sean Connery in 'The Rock'? That's Rip Torn RIGHT NOW...

    by Darth Macchio

    Seriously. They could make a whole movie in the vein of JCVD about getting Rip Torn out of jail to make MIB3. Have Rip with really long hair and a nasty Santa Hog beard wearing some crazy ass beat up Elvis glasses being interviewed by "specialists". They've tried and tried but just cannot understand Mr. Torn. Is it Rip Torn or is it the head of MIB? Who knows!?!?! Nobody knows! Anyway, so they go on and on about how he's this genius/prodigy dude (he is) and how he brings credibility to anything he's in (he does - have you seen Freddy Got Fingered?). And Smith and Brolin beg the Man to let him out long enough to film MIB3 and save the studio from a greedy land-developer named York Oxford Snobman III who also wants to stop MIB3 from being made (he's related to the guy who played the Ballchinian from the 2nd one). They try for hours and hours... And when the Man says "no way!" to Torn getting out for the filming, Smith and Brolin have to hire a crack squad of ex-military warrior "badass" types (Channing Tatum, Jaden Smith, Jada-Pinket Smith, Willow Smith, and John Cena) to help them break Rip Torn out of jail. Except hilarity ensues when they discover a jail Psychology Doc slipped Torn some LSD as a practical joke (Torn put real human poop in the Doc's soup thermos in an earlier episode, etc) and comedy antics get racked up when, for no reason at all, Zack Galifinakis shows up claiming Rip Torn owes him $50 bucks from the Margarito fight. Then, 1 hour and forty-five minutes later, they finally get to the set of MIB3 and viola - the movie ends. And the best part? No need to see MIB3! FACT!

    Seriously, what's with the negativity? Oh wait...

    by PopcornJockey

    I'm on the internet. *forehead slap* This looks good to me--definitely better than the last go 'round. And I agree Brolin will end up stealing the show. I never took the first MIB to be anything more than a good live-action cartoon (and I love the first movie to death). This looks like it has the same vibe. Can't comment on MIB2, I saw it once in the theatre, hated it, and never re-watched. As to the person or people trying to say that the lack of a strong villian in the trailer is indicating something bad--nah, I don't think so. I think that's partly what makes this a "teaser" and also they're trying to get as much "look Will Smith is back!" time on the screen as possible to spark interest. Plot, villains, etc. etc. will certainly be more prominent in the next cut of the trailer.

  • Dec. 12, 2011, 4:28 p.m. CST

    by glenn_the_frog

    65 episodes, and almost all of them were solid. Funny, action packed, interesting use of aliens, character development... each of them better in 22 minutes that either of the movies were in an hour and a half. Alpha shoulda been the villain in the second movie instead of the plant chick. Heck, they could just take the first 3 Alpha episodes, add a little more meat to them to make them a more cohesive whole, and make a movie out of that. It'd work.

    a good teaser doesn't mean....

    by Demosthenes2

    ....that the film won't be a mess. There's a reason the word "reshoots" is often preceded by "plagued with." Also, does this mean that Tommy Lee Jones won't be in much of the film? Because that would also be troubling...

  • Seriously...have you ever seen so many positive comments on AICN? I'm guessing one intern at the studio was put in charge of creating a bunch of accounts so he could leave excited comments in this talkback. But to add a little authenticity, he was given the ok to shit on MIB2. There's no way 2 seconds of a Tommy Lee Jones impression would have people saying stuff like "My son and I will be there!"

    So much anger...

    by Hipshot

    toward an actor. Fascinating, really. I mean, all people have to do is not go to Will Smith's movies. Instead, they vomit out venom as if he'd run over their dog or fucked their girlfriend. Rational people on this site see this, and reasonably wonder: why so much negative emotion toward this particular actor? Frankly, whenever I see anger, I ask: "what is this person afraid of?" What in the world would these people have to be afraid of about Will Smith. And his family. Scientologists? He gives three times as much money to Christian causes, so that feels a little...thin. Arrogance? More than Stallone or Schwarzenegger? We kidding? There's just SOMETHING about him that triggers a powerful anger response. Fear response. I wonder what it might be. And Jaden even more so. Fascinating, really. And very, very sad.

  • Dec. 13, 2011, 7:16 a.m. CST

    From what I read

    by Peter David

    Tommy Lee Jones agreed to be in the film but only with a minimal role (same as Bill Murray in GB3.) So I'd assume that decision shaped the story, rather than that they decided, "Let's do MIB3 but make sure that Tommy Lee Jones has minimal screen time. As for me, I'm imagining what that time jump fall is going to look like in 3D. It's gonna be like a ride at Universal (not to be confused with MIB which actually IS a ride at Universal.) PAD

    by kevred

    I almost forget what it's like to simply go and have a breezy good time at the movies, without the nagging feeling that what you're watching is horribly contrived, over-marketed, calculated marketing drivel. Not to suggest that this is high art, but MIB may be one of the few extant franchises with a lingering connection to a somewhat more innocent time.

  • Dec. 13, 2011, 11:23 p.m. CST

    As for Dark Knight...

    by kevred

    ...most of what we've seen so far looks fairly ridiculous. BB bored me to tears, TDK was great for a while but blew it in the last act (and is fairly hollow in retrospect). No reason to think this will leave the atmosphere when the first two didn't. Nolan's a good, stylish filmmaker, but he hasn't shown any sign of transcendence in the first two films. TDKR needs to get down to some serious rule-breaking fast if it wants to lift the franchise off the ground. In spite of all I've said, I hope they pull it off. The talent is there, and it'd be great to see a home run here. I'd love to see an amazing Batman film. There hasn't been one yet.

  • If you hate Will Smith, it's because you're afraid of him, deep, deep down? Bollocks. I just hate the sight of the fucker's stupid ears and the sound of his stupid fucking songs.

  • Dec. 14, 2011, 9:34 a.m. CST


    by Hipshot

    "Hate" isn't anger, dude. But when the two are coupled, that is worthy of note. The greater the intensity of the emotion, the more likely your mind is attempting to protect you. Emotions don't exist in a vacuum, and we don't waste intense ones on things that make no difference. The question of why someone would focus large amounts of negative attention is perfectly reasonable to ask. Possibilities: 1) "I hate him. He has no talent. The deck is stacked against people like me, dammit!" 2) "I hate him. People are stupid! The world is a shitfest, and we're all screwed because so many assholes like this asshole!" ## There are other variations. Both are expressive of fear. I hate mosquitos, but I don't waste emotion on them unless I'm in a malaria zone. THEN I get pissed, and vehemently so. So...having zero respect for Smith is one thing. Feeling powerful emotions about it is a red flag.
