Are you ready for a groovy, out-of-this-world 3D adventure? MEN IN BLACK 3 is being released today on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD — all with UltraViolet!
MEN IN BLACK 3 is jam-packed with car chases and monocycle pursuits, as the famous, black-suited duo employs a brand-new collection of galactic gadgets to fight off retro aliens. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, along with Josh Brolin travel back in time to 1969 so Agent J (Will Smith) can save Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) from an alien assassination?
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack is loaded with special features, such as a ‘Spot The Alien’ game, in which viewers must spot the difference between aliens and humans, using their remote to zap the aliens. It also comes with two featurettes: “The Evolution of Cool: MIB 1960’s vs. Today,” a look at the differences between the Men in Black headquarters in 1960 vs. today in which the viewers can discover more about the weapons, technology, vehicles, and uniforms; and “Keeping It Surreal: The FX of MIB3,” a look behind the special effects in the film. Also featured are Scene Investigations featuring deconstructions of the lunar escape, the gunfight at Mr. Wu’s, J’s time travel, and the monocycle chase. Five progression reels are also included, featuring animation supervisors discussing how the key visual effects sequences were created for the film. The DVD comes with a gag reel, the all-new featurette “Partners In Time: The Making of MIB3,” and the “Back in Time” music video by Pitbull.
In addition to the 3D version of the film, the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack exclusively includes two featurettes: “The Case Of Boris the Animal: The 3D Models of MIB 3,” allowing viewers to learn all there is to know about the technology and devices of the MIB organization using 3D models; and “Converting to 3D,” exploring the Men in Black technology.
In MEN IN BLACK 3, Agents J [Will Smith] and K [Tommy Lee Jones] are back… in time. Agent 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 Agent 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 Agent 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.
