"No less a critic than C. S. Lewis has described the ravenous addiction that these magazines inspired; the same phenomenon has led me to call science fiction the only genuine consciousness-expanding drug." Arthur C. Clarke

Top 10 Sci-Fi Films of 2012 #4: MEN IN BLACK 3

May 25’s Men in Black 3 is a film ten years in the making.  It will be released almost a decade after it’s predecessor in the series and fifteen years after the original Men in Black.  The film returns Barry Sonnenfeld as director, as well as Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

The film will center around the adventures of Agent J (Smith) as he goes back in time to 1969 to stop an alien from killing Agent K (Jones) and changing Earth’s history in the process.  The young K is played by Josh Brolin, while Alice Eve and Emma Thompson play young and old (respectively) versions of Agent O, obviously another agent of the Men in Black.

In the first trailers that have been released so far, it seems as if the Young Agent K’s voice has been edited in with Jones’ voice, but I would not be surprised to hear Josh Brolin replicate it that well.  It will be interesting to hear which is the case, as I would not imagine an A-list actor such as Brolin would particularly enjoy having his voice covered-over.
