No, you’re not watching Thor
There is a new Men In Black on it’s way. And this time there will be no Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones. This time, the stars of the film are Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson who we last saw playing together in Thor: Ragnarok.
This time, it seems that a reboot is being done the right way. Which is an absolute rarity in modern Hollywood. The only similarity between MIB and Ghost Busters will be Chris Hemsworth. Instead of wiping the slate clean, and pretending the preceding movies didn’t exist, Sony has decided to set this new movie within the same universe as the originals. It’s merely telling the story of other agents. Good choice Sony.
Hemsworth plays the more tenured agent who has been assigned to new agent Thompson. And the trailer shows that much of what we loved about the original MIB movies will be present in the new International movie.
MIB also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Laurent Bourgeois, Larry Bourgeois with Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson.
What do you think? Are you happy to see the MIB franchise grow?
