The second official trailer for the newest addition to the Men in Black franchise reveals the backstory of one of the new main characters. Men in Black: International trailer two explains that the character played by Tessa Thompson saw her parents’ memories wiped by the MIB and she’s spent 20 years searching for the secret organization. She’s a natural to join the organization since she’s the only person who discovered their location.
Columbia Pictures also released a new poster and photos from the upcoming MIB: International.
Tessa Thompson’s cohort in alien management is Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame). Thompson and Hemsworth previously worked together on Thor: Ragnarok. The cast also includes Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Laurent Bourgeois, Larry Bourgeois, Emma Thompson, and Liam Neeson.
The sci-fi action film was directed by F. Gary Gray from a script by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. The film franchise is based on the Malibu Comic by Lowell Cunningham. The behind the scenes team includes director of photography Stuart Dryburgh, editor Christian Wagner, and production designer Charles Wood.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald produced, and Steven Spielberg, E. Bennett Walsh, Riyoko Tanaka, David Beaubaire, Edward Cheng, Howard Chen, and Barry Sonnenfeld executive produced. Sonnenfeld directed the first three films of the franchise, kicking off the story of a secret agency that monitors alien activity on Earth back in 1997. Men in Black 2 followed in 2002, with Men in Black 3 arriving in 2012.
Columbia Pictures is planning to release Men in Black: International in theaters on June 14, 2019.
