Take a Good Look at the Aliens in 'Men in Black 3'Britt Hayes |
While Josh Brolin playing a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones is certainly a big draw for this summer's 'Men in Black 3,' we've seen little proof of alien life in the teasers and photos... Until now.
Entertainment Weekly heard your pleas, internet, and they've come to the rescue with several photos showing off the work of skilled FX legend Rick Baker, who created 127 different types of aliens for the film with his FX company (and who you can see below, with the big brain).
In the sequel, Agent J (Will Smith) has to travel back in time to prevent the assassination of Agent K (Josh Brolin) by a jerky alien named Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement). Honestly, he should just let Jemaine Clement kill Josh Brolin, and then the two of them can come up with a snazzy theme song and we can forget that Pitbull -- and not Will Smith, the rightful Prince of Bel-Air -- was asked to do the theme song for this film.
Many of the aliens in the film were designed to deliberately evoke other eras. Rick Baker shows his age by explaining, "When I saw the 60s part, I said, 'I think we should do retro-looking aliens based on a lot of the aliens that were in films from the 50s and 60s that I love."
You can check out the aliens from these photos and then some when 'Men in Black 3' hits theaters May 25, assuming you can wait that long. You've come this far. Note: We're pretty sure that last photo is Harvey Weinstein's failed attempt at cloning a version of himself that can still eat M&M's off the floor.
