It’s been over two decades since the first Men in Black came out and six years since the franchise seemingly came to a close with Men in Black 3, but there is still alien activity in need of policing and the agents in black are returning to do just that in next year’s spinoff. One of the stars of the new film, Chris Hemsworth, has wrapped filming and he seems pumped for audiences to see the new Men in Black. Check it out.
It is strange to see Thor without his beard, but I guess when you mess up your one job and half the universe dies, a new career and a new look can give you a fresh start. Chris Hemsworth seems excited to show fans this new Men in Black and it looks and sound like they all had a blast filming F. Gary Gray’s movie. Hopefully, that comes through onscreen in a spinoff that lives up to the original.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson certainly seem like the dynamic duo in this Instagram post and the few images we’ve seen from set. Their interactions and banter were some of the highlights of Thor: Ragnarok and it will be exciting to see how their Men in Black agents play off one another like Jay and Kay before them.
What’s also interesting is that Chris Hemsworth mentions all the different locations they filmed in during production. Filming in London, Morocco, Italy and New York City makes it seem like this new Men in Black will be much more of a global journey than what we’ve seen before from this franchise, showing that the aliens aren’t just confined to the island of Manhattan.
This is affirmed in the small details we know about the plot. MIB is expected to follow agents from the London branch of the Men in Black as they solve a murder mystery, presumably involving aliens, which will take them on a global adventure. The head of that UK branch will be none other than the possessor of a very particular set of skills, one Liam Neeson.
With Chris Hemsworth wrapped on the film, that hopefully means we’ll get some official looks at the spinoff in the form of stills or a teaser before too long. Heck, we’ve been calling it the Men in Black Spinoff or MIB but this movie hasn’t even revealed its official title yet.
MIB or whatever it’s called, stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson as well as Mission: Impossible Fallout‘s Rebecca Ferguson, Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall and Kumail Nanjiani.
Sony’s as-yet-untitled Men in Black film makes this look good on June 14, 2019. That’s just one of a whole host of reasons you might as well just move into your local theater next year, check them all out in our 2019 release schedule.
