It's been 15 years since Men in Black introduced us to alien chasers Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), a host of quirky extraterrestrials, and the idea that people’s memories can be wiped clean, or "neuralyzed," after they've come into contact with visitors from other planets. And it's been 10 years since the 2002 sequel, Men in Black II, hit theatres.

Over that decade, some pretty impressive aliens have invaded movie theatres, from Avatar's big-budget Na'vi to District 9's low-budget, but highly effective, "prawns."

So MiB's creators, once innovators in the cinematic alien realm, needed to bring it for Men in Black 3 — or MIB3. They chose to go with a plot involving time travel, and some truly inspired casting in the form of Josh Brolin as a bang-on younger version of Jones's Agent K.
