Clips: Men in Black III & Chernobyl Diaries
Will Smith is back as Agent J in Men in Black III, and this time he’s heading back in time to 1960s to save the young version of his partner Agent K (played by Josh Brolin, doing an uncanny impersonation of Tommy Lee Jones), from an maniacal alien (Jemaine Clement) who wants to eliminate K and thereby alter the path of universe, leading to Earth’s destruction.
In these three new clips, we see J and Young K in a chase scene with Clement’s biker alien “Boris,” using some MIB-style vehicles (and questionable CGI effects). The second clip is basically an old west-style “saloon shootout,” in which J and Older K take on a gang of aliens inside a Chinese restaurant (using guns with questionable sound effects). The third clip features Young K trying to get to the bottom of who this “man from the future” is.
Chernobyl Diaries comes our way courtesy of a script from Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli, and visual effects artist-turned-first-time-director, Bardley Parker. No, it won’t continue the “found footage” format of the PA franchise, but will be something akin to the Hills Have Eyes, only set in Russia. The story follows a group of twenty-somethings who venture to the site of the infamous Chernobyl nuclear disaster, only to discover horrific creatures are still lurking around the wasteland.
In this first clip, we see the group of doomed kids touring a building in the Chernobyl area led by their Russian guide – who quickly discerns that they may not be alone:
Men in Black III hits 2D and 3D theaters on May 25, 2012.
