One of the things I’m most looking forward to in Men in Black 3 is seeing Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) playing the lead villain.

With its release just around the corner this weekend, an excellent little featurette has debuted online at Yahoo Movies, introducing us to Clement’s antagonist, Boris the Animal, who has to be one of the nastiest-looking aliens the franchise has seen (much credit to Rick Baker, the makeup artist).

Barry Sonnenfeld is returning behind the camera once more, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones naturally donning the suits for the third outing, with Josh Brolin joining the franchise alongside Emma Thompson, Alice Eve, Bill Hader, and Nicole Scherzinger.

“In Men in Black III, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.”

Men in Black 3 is released on the big screen this Friday, 25th May, and if you’re a fan of the franchise, it looks like we’ve got an impressive array of aliens to look forward to in this third instalment.

In case you’ve missed it, you can catch up on all our coverage of the film right here, including Ben’s review of the film, and our interviews at the UK premiere last week. Enjoy.
