TV & FILM
brian-mcgee - December 20, 2018
For the second time in his career, F. Gary Gray is directing a sequel to a Barry Sonnenfeld movie from twenty years ago. In 2005 he gave us the Get Shorty sequel Be Cool that no one asked for, wanted, or enjoyed, and now we have Men in Black: International starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson.
The pair most recently teamed up as Thor and Valkyrie in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok, so they should have plenty of chemistry and rapport in this flick. The supporting cast for this go around is also pretty stellar, including Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, and Rafe Spall. I guess I just don't think the world needed a new Men in Black movie. At least it's not that Men in Black/21 Jump Street crossover they once talked about, that would've been rotten.
This one's got an obviously international flavor, as indicated by the title with Hemsworth's Agent H and Thompson's Agent M trying to sniff out a mole in the agency. My money's on Neeson. He's gotten really good at playing rat bastards in the last year and will fit that niche nicely.
Like MiB3, this won't be releasing on Big Willie Weekend either, aka 4th of July. It's coming out on June 14, 2019, meaning it'll be all but forgotten by the time July 4th rolls around and the new Spider-Man movie opens.
