‘Men In Black: International' Trailer Review—We Are the Men in Black!!

A Trailer Breakdown of 'Men In Black: International,' the Fourth Installment of the Franchise

Image Credit to GameSpot

Welcome, Men In Black fans!!

I hope you all are having wonderful day!

The Men In Black: International trailer just dropped today and it looks phenomenal. For some reason, both Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent J (Will Smith) did not appear in this movie. However, two new agents will take over this film. Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and Agent M (Tessa Thompson). Liam Neeson’s character is the head of the Men In Black UK branch.

Today, I will breakdown this trailer for you guys and share my thoughts. Also, I will provide some details you might have missed. If you have not watched the trailer, watch it now.

You will not be disappointed.

So without further ado, let’s breakdown the Men In Black: International trailer!

Paris, France

In the first 30 seconds of the trailer, we can see why they’re calling this film Men In Black: International. This movie will take place in various countries and cities.

We have a shot here of Paris, France, which looks fantastic.

Liam Neeson and Agent H are on a mission.

This place is where Agent H and Liam Neeson will most likely be on their mission.

New York

As we transition to the next scene, we see New York, with what looks like the Brooklyn bridge. You can also see the Empire State Building in farther the background.

Agent M finally found the MIB.

This is a shot of Tessa Thompson, who is going to be playing a Will Smith role in this movie. She said that, “It took me 20 years to find you. How can you say that?” This may indicate that she was searching for 20 years to find an MIB facility.

It looks like she is trying to force her way into the Men In Black Academy. It’ll be interesting to know why Thompson had not been recruited into the American version.

Why?

Because from the images and plot details we’ve gathered in this film, we’re going to be mainly following the Men In Black: International. This film will take place in London. The next couple of shots gave us some big details that weren’t quite sure about the reboot. Now they were specific to call this film a reboot.

Does that mean they were getting rid of all the previous movies that happened with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones?

We'll find out soon.

Two Historic Paintings of Agents Fighting Aliens

In this shot here, we see two paintings, which confirms that it takes place in the exact same universe as Will Smith’s Men In Black movies. As you can see, the picture on the right is actually from the first Men In Black. This film was where both Agent J and Agent K fight off that giant roach. Those two men on the right painting are both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

Now the painting on the left is not from a previous film that we’ve seen. This is definitely Chris Hemsworth and Liam Neeson. It looks like they were fighting an alien creature and a beam was shooting out of the Eiffel Tower. I’m guessing that these two paintings are the two biggest important key elements in MIB history. This may indicate that they are saving the world.

We know the backstory of the previous Men In Black films. It's cool to see that Will Smith is somewhere out there. Maybe he might make a cameo appearance and show up.

We don’t know yet.

I have to believe that there’s a reason why the filmmakers of this movie made a reboot to keep the continuity. This might be for future installments if this movie does well in the box office.

With the music playing in the background, we’re getting a vibe of what the makers are going with sort of a fun, action film.

I think that’s pretty cool.

The mini guns have returned.

In this shot here of the mini guns, I like how you can keep looking at them. They still kept the gun mystique, which is awesome.

MIB Suits for Women

The outfits look very similar to the previous Men In Black movies. I like that they’re keeping that atmosphere. This further confirms that this scene takes place in the same universe.

Agent M looks really happy.

As we transition to the next image, we see Agent M looking very happy.

Here is what I think about this image of her.

It appears that she looks really happy to be finally putting on an MIB suit to become one. This leads me to believe that maybe she has a connection with a past family member who worked in the Men In Black. I don’t want to get ahead of myself here, but she may be the daughter of Agent J, which will make sense. It’s not confirmed that she is related to him in this film.

If the filmmakers allowed this to happen, I think it will be too obvious throughout the movie. Maybe she is trying to solve a mystery of what happened to her father, and that may be her connection to Smith. I believe that someone in her family was probably involved in Men In Black.

This may be the reason why she was desperate to find them and finally be a part of them.

Universal Airport

This is a cool image of a "Universal Airport." This place is where all of the aliens come in and out from different places.

These familiar group of aliens are back!

As we transition further, we see a familiar group of aliens here. These aliens are called “Annelids,” or you can call them warm guys for short. You may remember them from smoking and being rough rousers in the old Men In Black movies. I think it’s pretty cool that they showed them in this film.

Sadly, I don’t think these aliens will be a big part of this movie compared to previous films.

What’s cool is that this movie got the director from The Fate of the Furious to come on board. The director also did Straight Outta Compton, which did fairly well in the box office. In my eyes, this person is capable of making an amazing film. The Fate of the Furious was very entertaining. So he’s got the ability to take a serious story and make it entertaining.

That’s what you get with this trailer with that fun music in the background.

This is how you set a good tone.

A tone that is fun and alive, but it is still action-packed. Also, the stakes are pretty high.

Agent H and Agent M use their mega guns to shoot at an alien.

I’m also loving all of the new gadgets in this Men In Black movie. There is a car that is basically holding all of these weapons—with different car parts, turned into guns.

In the above image, we see both Agent H and Agent M using high-tech guns to shoot at an alien creature.

Those guns look so awesome!!

Henchman

Guess who these guys are.

The most popular dance group we have ever seen, the Les Twins have made their mainstream movie debut.

I’m so proud of how far they’ve come.

It seems like they will be the bad guys in this movie, which should be very interesting. For some reason, I feel like the Les Twins are the henchmen, and it looks like they are on a search for something later in the movie.

Either way, I’m sure they will kill it.

The Memory Eraser Device

The device used to erase people’s memory has come back. This memory eraser device is expected to be in the film. There are more shots of both Agent H and Agent M going all over the world to stop what is happening in this movie.

That is pretty cool to see.

Exploring different countries is like going to different planets. Maybe aliens prefer living in different cities and countries over others.

A Tiny Alien Creature

This little alien guy right here looks adorable, doesn’t he?

We don’t know his name yet.

This little alien is voiced by comedian Kumail Nanjiani, who is a very funny guy. I think he will do a wonderful job with this little alien creature.

I have to admit—so far in the trailer—we’re not getting a whole lot of aliens for a movie revolving around people who stop aliens.

Don't push the red button!

This scene here of Agent M pushing a big red button was a reference used for past Men In Black movies. This image was simply used as a gag from the first Men In Black movie about touching the red button in the car.

I think that was really funny.

Another Alien Creature

With the last little ending piece here, we get to see Chris Hemsworth fighting off one of these aliens. I am not loving the CGI effect on this alien. On the flip side, the developers can still fix this minor issue before the movie comes out.

I always love the Men In Black movies because they use real effects. Most aliens are done through prosthetics and makeup.

The difficult aliens were done through CGI—like the giant Roach, for example.

Overall, this trailer sold me. I want to see this movie. I’m looking forward to it. This film has the right balance of comedy and action.

It looks really fun to watch.

Stay tuned for more Men In Black news!

Happy Holidays!!
