Men in Black III Sony Booth

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.

Thanks to SlashFilm for posting a gallery - go there for more. Click on any to be taken to the original photo.

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.

    always loved the retro sci fi look the weapons had in all the MIB movies

    Oh boy looks like another Men In Black non-sense sequel again...I was definitely disappointed with MIB 2 now this teaser of weapons leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
  • Lebowski
    The guns were easily the most compelling character of the first movie. Too bad the second was so bad that I think I have subconsciously edited most of it out of my memory.

    Lookss like cheap plastic that will break as soon as you pick them up
  • Craig
    It all looks awesome, except for the phone. That thing looks like what someone from the 80s would have thought a cell phone would be.

      I thought i read somewhere there was going to be time travel in this film?  or at least some flash back stuff, cant remember now.  The stuff in the first pic looks like it might be retro MIB equipment maybe???

    Do you have anyone you can contact about the Activision booth and get a picture with the Green Screen for Spider-Man or Men In Black? I lost the link on the card and just need the website where we can retrieve the pictures and I can go from there well at least guess and try. Any help would be great!
