Men in Black International Review

In the interest of honesty, I’ll freely admit that I’m not the kind of critic who takes notes during screenings. If I did take notes, though, I know that the words “adrift” and “lost” would have come up often in whatever I jotted down while watching Men in Black International, the fourth film in the science-fiction action-comedy franchise that extends more than two decades. In spite of a seemingly unbeatable new duo donning slick black suits, shiny sunglasses, and other fancy duds, Men in Black International is a particularly rough film to watch, genuinely unable to tell a good, even moderately entertaining story.

Men in Black International - Chris Hemsworth

Men in Black International is coming to theaters next week. The scum of the universe is still giving Earth a hard time, and this time it’s up to seasoned Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and newcomer Agent M (Tessa Thompson) to handle the problem. This is something MiB has never faced before, because there’s a mole in the agency. What their ultimate goal is, beyond destruction, we’re not sure, and the latest Men in Black International trailer isn’t telling us. Instead, it’s relying on the cool aliens, big action setpieces, and some fairly lame wisecracks. Read More »

men in black international box office tracking

Men in Black: International is counting on audiences not wanting to get their memories zapped after they see the fourth film in the Men in Black franchise. The Men in Black International box office tracking numbers suggest that the sci-fi action film starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will open to a $40 million debut, less than half of its $110 million budget. But word-of-mouth could help drive this sequel’s numbers.

men in black international trailer new

A new Men In Black International trailer just dropped in from outer space, and let’s just say it leaves a lot to be desired. The cast here is wonderful, reuniting Thor: Ragnarok co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as a new generation of alien-policing secret agents. But will their charisma be enough to elevate what looks like somewhat shoddy material? Let’s hope! Watch the Men In Black: International trailer below.

Men in Black International Alien Agents

Since Men in Black is concerned with protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe, it doesn’t seem like the kind of organization that would trust extra-terrestrials enough to employ them as agents (although we did see them doing office work and such). When you look back at the Men in Black franchise, there don’t appear to be any aliens suited up as full-fledged agents. But that will change with Men in Black International. Read More »
