Comic-Con 2011: Futuristic Weapons for 'Men in Black III' on Display
Despite some odd production delays and hiatuses, Columbia Pictures' Men in Black III is still in the works, and set to hit theaters May 25th, 2012 next year. While there wasn't a Hall H presentation for the sequel, Sony did plant some rather interesting Men in Black tidbits around Comic-Con. I caught a photo of the giant Neuralizer (above) in my Preview Night gallery, but it was our friends at SlashFilm who discovered the Studio Art Technology booth and got shots of a complete collection of weaponry used in the movie. A handful of futuristic prop guns, similar to the infamous weapons from the first two movies, were on display.
My guess is that the last photo of the weapon with small green brain (I think?) in the middle of it looks like something the villain uses - plus having a brain in it is pretty cool. That double-barreled one also looks like a bad guy's weapon, but the rest are pretty sleek/badass upgrades to the normal shiny MIB gear. It's cool to see this stuff, but we have no clue how they fit into the film yet since we haven't even seen a trailer or poster.
Men in Black III is once again directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, also of the first two. This is said to be set in the year 1969 and involves Agent J (Will Smith) time-traveling back to that year, where he meets up with a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) for some plot involving, most likely, our landing on the Moon. The movie is finished shooting and Columbia has it scheduled for May 25th next year, so we'll keep you updated on it.
