One New Image Apiece for 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'Men in Black III'

A full decade ago, in the summer of 2002, Sony had two big event movies that are now of particular interest.  One was Men in Black II, a commercially successful but not terribly well-received sequel to 1997's popular science-fiction comedy, and the other was Spider-Man, Sam Raimi's bubblegum blockbuster that, more than anything else, marked the start of the superhero era in mainstream movies.  Now, in the summer of 2012, we're seeing Men in Black III, another sequel, and The Amazing Spider-Man, a ground-up reboot.  Today, we've got one new image apiece from each. 

Both Sony films were shot in 3D, meaning you're going to pay a few extra bucks to see the future of these two franchises in a theater.  You might also want to pick up some Rogue 3D Eyewear in time for the summer season.  No need to look like a chump whilst thrilling to the adventures of a secret extraterrestrial-policing organization or a teenage webslinger.

These two images are part of Entertainment Weekly's big 2012 preview issue, which is available in print in digital forms as of today.  The scans, however, are here thanks to Comic Book Movie (MIB) and again, Comic Book Movie (Spidey).

Yes, that is Will Smith on a contraption that somewhat resembles the "It" transportation device developed by Mr. Garrison in a long-ago episode of South Park. And yeah, that is Josh Brolin behind him, playing the 1960's version of Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K.  Your guess is as good as mine as to what exactly Smith's ride does, but it does have that shiny MiB tech look to it.

Barry Sonnenfeld, who has not directed a film since RV in 2006, returns to direct Smith after his longest absence from the big screen since his movie kicked off in earnest back in the mid 1990's.  Smith, Jones, and Brolin are joined by a cast that includes Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Bill Hader, and Nicole ScherzingerMen in Black III arrives on May 25th.

The Amazing Spider-Man, meanwhile, is directed by the comparatively green Marc Webb, whose only feature credit is (500) Days of SummerAndrew Garfield dons the red and blue tights, with Emma Stone as the Gwen Stacy to his Peter Parker.  The rest of the cast is populated by actors such as Rhys Ifans, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Chris Zylka, and Irrfan Khan.  The Spider-Man series starts over on July 3rd.
