Even the Men in Black are no match for the forces of globalization.
The first trailer for "Men in Black: International" is here, and the fourth film in the franchise is, as the title suggests, going global. The reboot/sequel reunites "Thor: Ragnarok" stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as new partners in the agency that monitors and polices alien lifeforms on Earth.
But dealing with alien scum is a piece of cake. Now, the MIB have to face their biggest threat yet: a mole in the organization.
The trailer shows how wise it was to re-team Hemsworth and Thompson, who have the sparkling chemistry they had in "Ragnarok." And since the 1997 original relied so heavily on the banter between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, that's a good sign.
Director F. Gary Gray ("Straight Outta Compton") seems to be aiming for a tone like the original, mixing cool action setpieces with witty quips. The movie is sort of a reboot, sort of a continuation, since Emma Thompson returns as Agent O from "Men in Black 3."
"Men in Black: International" opens in theaters June 14.
