• FILM: MEN IN BLACK 3 (PG). Boglodite assassin Boris The Animal (Jemaine Clement) engineers his escape from the Lunar Max high security prison with help from his sexy girlfriend (Nicole Scherzinger). The snarling supervillain plans to travel back in time and kill the man who put him behind bars and shot off his left arm: Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). The ripple effect causes Agent K to disappear from the future, heralding a full-scale Boglodite invasion of Earth. “K’s been dead for over 40 years,” Agent O (Emma Thompson) tells a confused Agent J (Will Smith) when he turns up for work. Having ascertained the past has been altered, J travels back to 1969, where he meets the young Agent K (Josh Brolin). With assistance from the young Agent O (Alice Eve) and an otherworldly soothsayer called Griffin (Michael Stuhlbarg), J races against the clock to save his best friend from annihilation.
