It looks like Will Smith’s one-liners will be time-traveling as much as his character, if this latest Men In Black III trailer’s “I will pimp slap the shiznit out of Any Warhol” joke is any indication. Perhaps there is some context for the painfully out of date reference to a piece of slang that was never actually funny, but still… ew.
That said, I’d be lying if I didn’t note that there are some things in this trailer that I like. Brolin’s take on Agent K’s dry, cavalier personality seems fun, and I love that MIB headquarters becomes filled with shittier, cheesier looking aliens in the ’60s. Also, I’m reading some indications that
Rip Torn is actually in this (NOPE), which would please my soul. I’d also like to see some glimpse of Michael Stuhlbarg, as he’s quickly becoming one of my new favorite character actors and he plays a character called “Griffin” here.
Will Smith seems to have entirely lost his control of the quip though, which in and of itself pretty much spells doom for this movie if that’s the case.
Also, Trey Parker and Matt Stone must be laughing their dicks off this morning, because somebody thought it would be a good idea to bring Mr. Garrison in to advise the vehicle design…
