It’s no secret that the production for Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3 has been a troubled one (the movie is STILL filming pickups). This time around Will Smith travels back in time to 1969 in order to save a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and avert a world-ending disaster. The only disaster is attempting to do a time travel film – on a short time frame nonetheless. Word on the street is that the screenplay was still being written as production got underway, a giant no-no if you’re going to leap from year to year. Plot holes? Yes please.
Still, I have to admit that the newly released trailer is a bit eye-catching. While it attempts to deliver on the humor (and fails completely), some of the concepts are pretty rad (especially the idea that he has to jump to time jump). Take a look inside and tell us what you think.
In theaters May 25 from Columbia Pictures, Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, and Emma Thompson also star.
