The fresh behind-the-scene image shows the Oscar-winning make-up effect artist striking a pose with his retro alien creations that will appear in the upcoming sci-fi film.
A new behind-the-scene image from "Men in Black 3" has arrived, presenting a look at various never-before-seen alien creatures that will appear in the upcoming action comedy movie. Making its way out via Stark Industries, the picture shows legendary make-up effect artist Rick Baker posing together with a barrage of his outrageous alien creations.
In addition to the picture, there are photos that give a look at Baker giving a touch-up to Jemaine Clement's villainous Boris as well as designing a fish-headed extraterrestrial being. There is also an image that sees the seven-time Oscar winner giving his magical touch to a Chinese robe-clad alien.
Baker once opened up that he wanted to feature retro aliens in "MIB 3" to adjust to the "time travel element" in the movie. He said, "The first thing I said is that we should have retro aliens, not aliens of 2012. More based on B-movies of the '50s and '60s. So, a lot of the aliens are based on that. Space suits with fishbowl helmets and ray guns."
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, "Men in Black 3" will bring back Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent J and Agent K respectively. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing perplexes him as much as his partner Agent K.
As K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, 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 young K to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
Tackling the part of young K is Josh Brolin. Also supporting the sci-fi movie are Nicole Scherzinger, Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Bill Hader as well as Michael Stuhlbarg. Columbia Pictures will release the film in the U.S. on May 25.
