If you needed an additional excuse to go see Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin in Men in Black 3 this weekend, how about this one: you’ll also see a six-minute preview of The Amazing Spider-Man. Theater-goers who attend Thursday’s midnight showings of Men in Black 3D in IMAX will also get a sneak peek of one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. Perhaps the trailers, clips, featurettes, images, posters, viral videos and interviews weren’t enough for you; maybe even this four-minute extended trailer hasn’t satiated your appetite. If that’s the case, go buy your tickets for the midnight showing of MiB3 and get set to enjoy six minutes of Spidey!
Oh yeah, there’s also the third installment in the Men in Black franchise to enjoy. Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, Men in Black 3 also stars Emma Thompson, Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, and Nicole Scherzinger. Hit the jump for more information on the preview of The Amazing Spider-Man and Men in Black 3.
The first trailer for Men in Black 3 has gone online. The plot for the sequel involves J (Will Smith) going back in time to rescue K (Tommy Lee Jones). If I didn’t know that the script was most likely a mess, I would be slightly excited after seeing this trailer. Smith is back with his full-blown charisma and Josh Brolin is a pitch perfect young K. Maybe there’s a chance that somehow the script worked itself out? I’d certainly rather see a good MIB movie than a bad one.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Johnny Knoxville, and Jemaine Clement. Men in Black 3 opens in 3D on May 25th.
At Sony’s 2009 ShoWest presentation, Rory Bruer (the President of Sony Worldwide Distribution) announced they were developing another Men in Black movie and he mentioned the year 2011. It looks like the plan is coming together, as Showbiz411 is reporting Will Smith has officially signed on to director Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3D and Tommy Lee Jones will be back as Agent K.
With Sony not having any big tentpole releases in either May or June 2011 as Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 got shelved, it would make sense to get an already established franchise into next summer’s schedule. And even though May 2011 is busy with Marvel’s Thor, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Hangover 2 and Mission Impossible IV, having Will Smith in your movie is as close to a sure bet as any actor in Hollywood.
