As a barrage of families are hitting the theaters for the holiday movie season, studios are drumming up awareness for their summer 2013 titles by unveiling promotional material at your local cineplex. Earlier today Matt spotted the first teaser poster for Sony’s Men in Black 3 and snapped a picture. The poster’s pretty effective (though slightly headache-inducing if you look too closely) as a bunch of “MIB3” logos make up Tommy Lee Jones’s face. Jones has a smaller role this time around though, as the film finds Will Smith traveling back in time to save a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and avert a world-ending disaster.
Production on the film was plagued with troubles, going so far as to take a hiatus during filming to work on the script. We don’t yet know how things turned out, but this teaser poster likely means a trailer is coming our way soon so we should have a better idea of what to expect. Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, and Jemaine Clement. Men in Black 3 opens in 3D on May 25th, 2012. [Update: We’ve updated the article with another teaser poster, this time featuring Will Smith]
