The first trailer for next summer’s “Men in Black 3” reveals that a lot of time traveling is going on. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back as Agents J and K, running around after all kinds of aliens on the loose in New York City. But this time, Smith’s Agent J travels back in time to the 1960s, where he encounters a much younger version of his partner, played in the past by Josh Brolin.
Viewers may also find themselves time traveling a bit, as “Men in Black 3” is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend of 2012, almost 10 years after the previous film, “Men in Black 2.” Can Smith, Jones and returning director Barry Sonnenfeld recapture the magic spark that made the MiBs so cool back in the Clinton era?
The third film in the franchise experienced a number of delays, including a one-month delay for the start of shooting in late 2010 to deal with reported script troubles and another lengthy two month mid-production break in early 2011.
