Exclusive: Will Smith and Josh Brolin in "Men in Black 3" (Photo: Wilson Webb/Columbia Pictures)
The Men in Black are coming back. After a decade away from movie screens, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are suiting up again this summer for "Men in Black 3." In this third go-round, Agent J (Smith) discovers that history has been rewritten so that his partner K (Jones) no longer exists. So J has to go back in time to 1969 and team up with the younger version of K, played by Josh Brolin.
Naturally, fans of the sci-fi/comedy series are dying for information about the new movie, so when we asked on Facebook for people to submit their questions about "MIB3" for Will Smith, we got a flood of responses. We selected a handful of questions from the hundreds we received, and Smith emailed back his answers. Read what he had to say about returning for "Men in Black 3," and come back on Monday, March 5 at 12pm ET/9am PT for the exclusive new trailer premiere right here on Yahoo! Movies.
Will, it's been quite a while since the last MIB and you have performed in a number of diverse films since. How difficult has it been getting back into the agent J role after so long? (submitted by Chris Zinke)
Will Smith: Not difficult at all! After you play a character twice, it's almost like riding a bike. A pretty black bike.
Will, If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and why? (submitted by Anonmember Silva)
WS: Ancient Egypt — so I could prove that aliens didn't build the pyramids!
Where are the "women in black"? (submitted by Lisa Herring)
WS: You gotta see the movie! There are some very prominent Women in Black... and they look hot, too.
Did you suggest having a younger Will Smith like Tommy's character in this film? Why or why not? (submitted by Movie Guy)
WS: I could answer that question... but then I would be forced to neuralyze you. SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
How do you feel about MIB coming out in 3D? (submitted by Annie Cruz)
WS: I just saw it in 3D -- and it looks INSANE. It's the type of movie that is just supposed to be in 3D. Makes me want to go back and do the other two in 3D!
What are we going to see in the third installment that we haven't seen in the first two? (submitted by Amber Lee)
WS: This movie has not only aliens, but time travel -- so it sets the movie in a time and place that gives it a whole new look and feel and brand-new situations that are so much funnier because of the time period. I really believe this is the best of the three.
How does it feel getting back in those sunglasses and suit again? (submitted by Catherine Lencione)
WS: I was really surprised that, after all these years, I STILL make this look good!
What's your favorite part about being in the MIB movies? (submitted by Damian Corbet Dauphin)
WS: I love that "Men in Black" is not like any other kind of movie. There's no other film I've ever seen that reminds me of "Men in Black." "Men in Black" is very special and unique, and I think it will go down in cinematic history.
Watch the first teaser trailer below to get ready for the new premiere this coming Monday. "Men in Black 3" opens on May 25.
