Looks fun. I hope it's good because I love Tessa Thompson and I like Chris Hemsworth too. Also yay for Emma Thompson being back!

I can't be the first person to point out the similarities between this and Jurassic Park World:

Same world with new characters for a more modern sequel of a famous trilogy. Fans are cautious but optimistic: It looks nowhere was good as the first film, but the sequels were mostly terrible so... maybe this turns out fine?

Looks alright... looking back, MIB 1 had classic Will Smith charm cranked to a million that would be hard to replicate it.

So this thing will kind of have to find it's own thing.

How would that have even worked? They pose as aliens?
They go to college again with more jokes about how it's the same shit we did before. Except there's a swerve twenty minutes in where they see an unnamed agent is getting taken out by the student they were supposed to be tracking, but the student sheds its skin. The other agent on the case kills the Alien but sees the jump street guys running away and doesn't have enough time to mindwipe. Mib later goes by their hideout and deputizes them because there are more aliens that have infiltrated the campus and he can't do it without his partner. Hijinks ensue. Running gag is having to mind wipe all the jump street partners back at the hangout and sidestory is Jonah falling for one of the aliens because he feels like an alien sometimes because he's socially awkward.

Boom! Billion dollar hit right there.

The romance angle is on brand.

If someone puts their twitter handle in their profile, I don't know if it's playing "internet detective" but you could sure find some embarrassing stuff from some people if you search for the word "female" from some folks.

I liked the original MIB movies solely because of the chemistry between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. This new movie looks like complete trash tbh.
The orignal MIB movies (besides the first) were shit because they insisted on bringing Tommy Lee Jones back again and again despite the fact that his character's story was over. You can't catch lightning twice no matter how hard you try.

Doesn't seem as bad as the first sequel but didn't seem immensely captivating either. Hemsworth is surprisingly good at playing comedic roles so the movie has that going for it, but this is probably one I will skip at least in the theaters.

Doesn't look great.

The main actress continues to be as annoying as she is in everything else. Would be great if they made Neeson's character Alpha!

The concept of a Men In Black anything taking outside of America continues to be dumb.

Will watch this for Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth alone. If I tell myself it's a Valkyrie and Thor buddy cop film, I'll probably enjoy it regardless of quality.

I hope Tessa Thompson isn't playing the "straight man" and Hemsworth the wacky one. Their chemistry was great in Thor, I don't want her rolling her eyes and being the wet blanket for the zany loose cannon hot boy.

I like Tessa Thompson, but kinda feels like over exposure at this point. Maybe the same for Chris Hemsworth, but I don't see many movies with him in them.

I haven't seen a MIB movie since the original, but this looked horrible average? Like, I couldn't find a single moment in the trailer I felt excited to watch this movie

This pretty much, there was no reason to bring K back as his story was pretty much wrapped up by the end of the first movie.

This is what the IP needed.

And unlike other more cynical "reboots" that discard the past or waste it in the process, this absolutely can tie into a "cross over" with Smith down the line.

I think it's a needed breath of fresh air to maybe revitalize and open up new possibilities for this franchise.

I know she has a lot of fans but I think Tessa Thompson is an egregiously bad actor. Just wooden and monotone. I have no clue how she is getting leading roles in anything. Really pains me to have to say that about my fave, Janelle Monae's girlfriend. Hell now that I think about it, just put Janelle in any Tessa Thompson role and instantly improve it.
