Have a look at Rick Baker's alien designs for MIB3

1 min read

Let’s be honest, Men In Black 3 was a sequel that just about nobody except Will Smith and his bank manager was clamouring for, but thanks to the Fresh Prince’s clout in Hollywood we’ll be getting it anyway. The fact that the film started shooting before it even had a completed script is certainly a point of concern, but it’s nice to know that at least the producers didn’t take the same half-arsed approached when it came to the alien creature designs.

Legendary Hollywood make-up artist Rick Baker was brought in to handle all the practical alien effects, and as you can see by these behind-the-scenes on-set pics, he has once again worked his magic.

Based on these pics we’ve learnt 3 new things about the movie:

  1. Jermaine Clement (one half of the incredible Flight of the Conchords) will be riding a sweet bike straight out of a bad Cliver Barker LSD trip
  2. Nemo and his dad are apparently from outer space
  3. This film features the illegitimate love child of Darth Vader and Chewbacca


Here’s the official synopsis:

In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

    I wonder why I am not as excited about this movie as I feel I should be.

      Agreed. Maybe it’s just due to having a pretty full plate as it is this Year of Our Awesomeness 2012, but MIB 3 just isn’t a film I feel compelled to see

    Is it just me, or are those three identical aliens in the first pic wearing Batman belts?
