Whoa. You went too Will Smith, Will Smith.

Sadly there’s no one to defend the galaxy against Will Smith in the first trailer for Men In Black III. Here we mostly see Smith as Agent J marauding around New York City and giving aliens and humans alike some serious sass. I guess it’s important to impress alien enemies with the latest slang before liquefying them with a ray gun.

After ten years away from the screen, the MiB are still operating in secret under the nose of John Q. Public. A powerful enemy escapes their holding cell and travels backward in time to kill Agent K and rewrite history. Agent J, being the fan of history that he is, finds a way to jump back in time as well to stop the fiendish plot. This is a pretty vague first look, so let’s look forward to a longer, more plot-driven trailer. In other words, let’s see Alice Eve in some tiny 1960′s dresses.

Sonnenfeld To Pit Dinosaurs Against Aliens In His Next Thinkpiece Project http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sonnenfeld-to-pit-dinosaurs-against-aliens-in-his-next-thinkpiece-project/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sonnenfeld-to-pit-dinosaurs-against-aliens-in-his-next-thinkpiece-project/#comments Tue, 10 May 2011 17:15:40 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211281 One battle to determine, once and for all, which is king of the lowbrow movie gimmicks.

Barry Sonnenfeld has decided to settle that bet you have with your friends about who would win in a fight, fictitious dinosaurs or fictitious aliens, with Dominion: Dinosaurs vs. Aliens. Having scored his biggest paydays thus far with MIB and MIB II, Sonnenfeld has apparently embraced the familiar Hollywood “more is more” ethos by tossing some dinosaurs into the mix.

Not content with only adhering to one Hollywood convention, he also took a page out of Joseph Kosinsky’s Horizons playbook, basing his film on a graphic novel that has yet to be written. The graphic novel will be penned by Grant Morrison, whose resume also includes Batman and The Invisibles.

Because the plot will be so important, let’s give it a rundown. An alien invasion happens during the time of dinosaurs, and a world war is waged. Wow. They really haven’t written this story yet.

Dominion will follow MIB III, but probably not immediately, as the graphic novel isn’t due out until year’s end so I wouldn’t expect production on this guy to kick off until mid-late 2012.

Who wins in a battle of dinosaurs and aliens? The smart money is on the the theatergoer! (I feel dirty.) (Deadline)

Looks like Barry Sonnenfeld understood and enjoyed all of the jokes in A Serious Man. The Men In Black III director and Coen Bros brosef has just cast Michael Stuhlbarg in the galaxy defending sequel.

Stuhlbarg will play a character named Griffin. The role was originally offered to Sharlto Copley, but that deal never went through. Nothing is known about the character beyond his name, so we can’t accurately say whether he will get covered with slime or will cover somebody else with slime. I’m 90% certain that slime will factor in, however. Unless there is another re-write (snarf-laughs and then hi-fives other movie bloggers). (THR)

Men In Black III has suffered it’s first casualty. The topsy-turvy production schedule has caused Manny from Quiet On The Chef Gourmet Catering to leave the project. He’s reportedly upset to have to jump ship but he’s got to pay his bills. Alec Baldwin is also leaving.

Baldwin had signed on to play the MiB boss back in 1969 but now schedule conflicts will prevent him from playing the straight man opposite coffee-drinking worms. “I’m not doing that. I’m out of it; the schedule didn’t work out,” he said.

I’m sure Stephen Baldwin is available though. That would be good too, right everyone? Guys? You want Stephen? Stephen Baldwin? He’s available. Sorry Stephen. Maybe next time. (Vulture)

Here they come, the Men In Black… galaxy delayers…

Looks like production has been delayed once again for director Barry Sonnenfeld‘s Men In Black III. The threequel halted filming once more to work on script issues, and after seeing Men In Black II, I believe that’s time well spent.

After a two month hiatus from December to February, the film was supposed to get back to shooting this week. That did not happen, and now the start date has been bumped back to March 28th. In the new entry into the series, Will Smith goes back in time to save a young Agent K (played by Josh Brolin) and the entire world (naturally). Perhaps the producers were planning on sending Smith back to the beginning of shooting with a copy of the finished script, to save the production a ton of money.

Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) wrote the original draft, and Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) has been brought in to rewrite the 60s-era time travel scenes. I thought the fun of this series was watching Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith bust alien ass. Do we really want to see an Austin Powers-y version of MIB? Even though it’s in 3D, the description of the plot does not make me horny, baby.

MIB 3 is still scheduled to mind-wipe moviegoers on May 25th, 2012. (Collider)

Clement joins Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and director Barry Sonnenfeld, who have all signed on to the project.While details are scarce, Collider is reporting that Clement will play an evil character named Yaz. Based on Clement's sideburns, one can only assume that "Yaz" is none other than Boston Red Sox's great Carl Yastrzemski, aka Mutton-chop Yaz.On the plus side, it would be hard to make a film any worse than MIB II. Unfortunately, Clement was already involved in the sci-fi related catastrophe, Gentleman Broncos, so anything is possible.

Director Barry Sonnenfeld told Showbiz 411 that Men in Black 3D is closer to happening sometime at some point. Will Smith has officially signed on and Tommy Lee Jones nodded awhile back, thus confirming his involvement. There's only the small matter of a script, which didn't seem to hinder the production of MiB2. I'm pretty sure the shooting draft of that was scribbled on the back pages of a Wild Wild West script. Men in Black 3D will be in 3D, as the title suggests and your common sense surmised. It's most likely Sony's hope that it lands in theaters Memorial Day 2011. Will Smith has a history of making that weekend his box office bitch.
