Watch Men In Black III Director Barry Sonnenfeld Talk About How He Was Influenced By Back To The Future

Time travel is a popular device in science-fiction, but it’s also a very tricky one to portray correctly. With so much science and so many rules at play, including Chaos Theory and parallel universes, it’s a hard concept to get your mind around. So when director Barry Sonnenfeld was making Men in Black III there was only one real place for him to look: Back To The Future.

At a recent press event in Los Angeles I had the chance to sit down with the filmmaker one-on-one to discuss his new film. Watch the video below to hear not only about how Back To The Future influenced the movie, but also how 3D came into the picture and how he got Michael Stuhlbarg to talk as fast as he does. Check it out!

Men In Black III stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Michael Stuhlbarg, Emma Thompson and Alice Eve. To see more from the film, head over to our Blend Film Database.
