Three New Men In Black Images Give Best Look Yet Of Jemaine Clement's Alien Villain

Since we already know what Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will look like in the upcoming Men In Black 3 (black suit, black tie, black sunglasses), we’ve spent most of our time collecting data on the look of their nemesis, this time played by Flight of the Conchords co-star Jemaine Clement. Earlier stories captured his image as a 1960s biker dude, followed by shots of Rick Baker’s makeup work to bring out Clement’s inner alien. But these three images, posted to Hey You Guys, give us our best glance of Clement in character, as accompanied by Nicole Scherzinger in the role of Lily Poison. Check them out:

We’re still not exactly sure what it is they are doing in the film. Is that a birthday cake in the first shot? And are they in a prison in the third photo? But really, I’m glad there’s still some mystery heading into this long-in-the-making sequel. Because it’s a Men In Black film, there’s no telling which direction the story can head, and the more unpredictable the action manages to be, the better.

The movie will reach theaters on May 25. To tide you over, we also have a new TV spot, which sheds a little bit of light on Barry Sonnenfeld’s plot but basically just regurgitates the time-travel angle of the story. Still, I can watch Josh Brolin’s impression of Tommy Lee Jones all day. What do you think of this soon-to-be-released sequel?
