About Men In Black III
Columbia Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present the highly anticipated film Men In Black III reuniting the dynamic duo of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The villain, Jemaine Clement, is an escaped alien convict named Yaz that travels back in time to kill Tommy Lee Jone’s character Agent Kay. Will Smith’s character, Agent Jay, responds by traveling even further back in time, in attempt to rescue Kay. We get plenty of the entertaining Smith/Jones dialogue we loved in previous MIB movies and, of course, more revelations about real-life celebrities who are actually aliens, like Jimi Hendrix, Kareem Abdul-Jabar and other humans with super-human talent levels.
