The upcoming MEN IN BLACK 3 will hopefully wipe our memory of the first dire sequel from a decade ago. Barry Sonnenfeld’s blockbuster franchise never fully reached its potential, despite earning mountains of cash for Sony Pictures. The chemistry between Will Smith’s motor-mouthed Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones’ sarcastic K were always the saving grace. Without the duo, the box-office double would have amounted to 90 minutes of impressive effects – and nothing else.

Perhaps this second sequel will finally hit that higher marker with the help of Josh Brolin who plays , with uncanny precision, a younger version of Jones’ Agent K. Time travel will obviously play a major part of the plot in this latest adventure and below we have the latest poster showcasing Smith on the pod-like cycles, briefly seen in the recent trailer.

MEN IN BLACK 3 will co-star Michael Stuhlbarg, Alice Eve, Nicole Scherzinger, Emma Thompson, Jermaine Clement and Bill Hader and will arrive in cinemas 25th May.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
