Sony has released the first trailer for Men In Black International, starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson with F. Gary Gray directing.
The film opens June 14, 2019 and also stars Kumail Najiani, Rafe Spall, Liam Neeson, and Rebecca Ferguson, who will likely play the movie’s villain.
The spinoff will not feature Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones, but it will expand on the world of the original trilogy. It sees Agent M (Thompson) join the covert MIB organization dedicated to policing the alien population hiding in plain sight on Earth. She is partnered with Agent H (Hemsworth) in the London bureau to stop a potential global catastrophe.
Men In Black International was been written by Matt Holloway & Art Marcum (Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight). Original franchise producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back along with executive producer Steven Spielberg.
The original Men in Black, starring the winning combo of Smith and Jones, came out twenty years ago in the summer of 1997, and grossed $589 million worldwide. Its 2002 sequel, Men in Black II, grossed $441 million worldwide and was less enthusiastically received by critics and audiences alike, while the 2012 threequel MIB 3 took the series back on course creatively and earned $642 million worldwide, despite a troubled filming process. Barry Sonnenfeld directed all three original pictures.
