First Men in Black 3 Trailer: Whatever
If you thought that Will Smith's trailer on the set of Men in Black 3 was ridiculous, wait until you see the actual trailer trailer for the film itself. The nonsensical first preview for the series' third installment is officially released, prompting the tired sighs of millions still reeling from the garbage-strike pile-up known as New Year's Eve. A perfectly fine way for Hollywood to further bruise your memory of a perfectly fine blockbuster and remind you beyond the shadow of a doubt that it's Monday. Submit.
Smith's first film in more than three years features him reprising his role as Agent J, traveling back through Chrysler Building gargoyle suicide-jump time machine to meet the young version of his partner Agent K, which is basically Josh Brolin doing an out-of-practice Tommy Lee Jones Impression form the set of No Country for Old Men. Jones is here, too, squirming through dead-faced line readings as though the piles of money beneath him have met their match in a fierce outburst of hemorrhoids. And there's Emma Thompson, and there's... enh, whatever. Life's too short. Good luck.
VERDICT: Try harder, team.
