Time Travel in Two New Posters and a Still From 'Men in Black 3'

Standard operating procedure before unveiling a trailer for a much-anticipated event movie is now to release some promotional material at least one day in advance of said trailer, so that the world knows it should prepare itself for the life-altering hype on the way.  To that end, Sony has issued a new image from Men in Black 3, the first sequel in the comedy-science fiction franchise since Men in Black 2 a decade ago.  But that's not all.  No, to ensure that we're all well aware a full theatrical Men in Black 3 trailer arrives on Monday, we also have for you not one, but two – two – posters for the 3D romp.

The still, here for your viewing pleasure thanks to Yahoo! Movies, shows Will Smith as Agent J and Josh Brolin as the younger version of Agent K with whom J teams up when he travels back in time to the 1960's.   J's jaunt through time happens in response to a vengeful alien biker who goes back a few decades to settle some beef with Jone's character.

The two posters, meanwhile, were unearthed at the poster-loving IMP Awards.  One has Smith with Brolin, the other with Tommy Lee Jones.  Taken together, both pretty cleanly convey the basic time-travel conceit of Men in Black 3 and assures audiences that they'll be getting two Agent Ks played by two separate Oscar-caliber actors.

Director Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed the first two Men in Black, as well as Get Shorty, The Addams Family, Big Trouble, and Wild Wild West, returns for his feature since 2006's RV.  The screenplay, which rather notoriously wasn't completed until it had caused a planned delay to get considerably longer, is credited to Etan Cohen, Jeff Nathanson, and David Koepp.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones continue to carry the franchise fifteen years after its debut, this with an added both from Josh BrolinJemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords plays the bad guy, and the supporting cast includes Emma Thompson, Alice Eve, Bill Hader, and Nicole Scherzinger.
