I dig it. The only weird thing is when they are not in the black suits. Yeah, I get it. The suits are to not stand out and who would wear a black suit in a desert, but in an MiB property, it is jarring for me.

Just watched this. Doesn't have the "alienness" to it the first one had. Seems more of a generic comedy and reeks of "Hey, remember those two people in that Marvel movie you liked? Well here they are in another movie! Forget the plot, they're in it and we're sure you'll love it! Give us your money!"
"But you know and I know that you're only half the man that I am - and I have half the brain that you do."

If I wanted to watch Thor and Valkyrie fighting aliens in J.Crew, I'd just wait for the next Marvel movie.
Part of what made the Will Smith / Tommy Lee Jones dynamic work was that you had a grizzled vet working as a straight man to the newcomer's comedic antics. This isn't just limited to the movies either, the comics and the television series also played on this dynamic nicely as well. The trailer is passable at best, but it's lacking something in the chemistry these two desperately need if they want to make this anything more than a cash-grab on nostalgia.

I disliked MIB2 but MIB3 was a good return to form for the series. Trailers for comedies are often pretty bad but there's enough stuff in the current one for me to at least be interested in it. Also, I have a softspot for the Worms.
I also like that it's been established that there's MIB bureaus all over the world versus just in NYC.
