Men In Black III
The time-traveling, third installment of the Men in Black franchise reunites two-time Academy Award nominee Will Smith (2007, Best Actor, The Pursuit of Happyness; 2001, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Ali) and Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones (1993, Best Supporting Actor, The Fugitive), along with Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (2009, Best Supporting Actor, Milk), as they travel back in time to 1969 so Agent J (Will Smith) can save Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) from an alien assassination.
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and written by Etan Cohen, Men In Black III is jam-packed with car chases and monocycle pursuits, as the famous, black-suited duo employs a brand-new collection of galactic gadgets to fight off retro aliens. The film also features Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (1995, Best Adapted Screenplay, Sense and Sensibility), and Jemaine Clement (Despicable Me).
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack is loaded with special features, such as a Spot The Alien game, in which viewers must spot the difference between aliens and humans, using their remote to zap the aliens. It also comes with two featurettes: “The Evolution of Cool: MIB 1960’s vs. Today,” a look at the differences between the Men in Black headquarters in 1960 vs. today in which the viewers can discover more about the weapons, technology, vehicles and uniforms; and “Keeping It Surreal: The FX of MIB3,” a look behind the special effects in the film. Also featured are Scene Investigations featuring deconstructions of the lunar escape, the gun fight at Mr. Wu’s, Jay’s time travel, and the monocycle chase. Five progression reels are also included, featuring animation supervisors discussing how the key visual effects sequences were created for the film. The DVD comes with a gag reel, the all-new featurette “Partners In Time: The Making of MIB3,” and the “Back in Time” music video by Pitbull.
