Men in Black 3 in November

News
Sony have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Men in Black 3 on 5 November 2012. Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin star in this sci-fi comedy which sees them travel back in time to 1969 so Agent Jay (Will Smith) can save Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) from an alien assassination.

Blu-ray extras include ‘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 gun fight at Mr. Wu’s, Jay’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 exclusively includes two featurettes: “The Case Of Boris the Animal: The 3D Models of MIB3,” 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.
