MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL Brings in $3.1M Domestic on Thursday

Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, has joked that Men in Black: International is secretly the fourth instalment of Thor.

Tessa Thompson continues to be all kinds of goals. "But the truth is, I think it's really significant, and I hope we can get to the space where it's not noteworthy when women topline these films, and I think a film like this helps us get there". "In other words, the idea of a secret police, secret agents who are protecting us from the aliens who are all around us and you just don't know it".

Speaking to E! News at the New York City premiere of Men in Black: International, the 35-year-old actress shared the heartwarming and empowering reason she signed on to a "movie of this scale".

Further down the charts in ninth is Amazon Studios/30WEST's "Late Night", which earned a $4.45 million opening from 2,218 screens after opening in Los Angeles and NY last weekend. Furthermore, the series is still officially based on Lowell Cunningham's graphic novels, which were in turn drawn from the whole "factual" notion of the paranormal/conspiracy theory "Men In Black" phenomenon.

"She said something great, like 'I've had the conversation, it takes time.' I think what she's speaking to is the fact that sometimes change happens quicker than we have language to describe it", Thompson said. This film moves pretty quickly.

And so, for the until-now two follow-ups to the certifiably classic 1997 movie, that's all we ever got: the exact same two agents, giving the exact same two performances, over and over and over and over again. In no time at all we see Molly, now known as Agent M, being whisked away to London for a special mission. He also tagged Hemsworth and Thompson in the post.

I feel like this movie didn't know what it wanted to be, as we're seeing it at one point as a "who is the mole" storyline jumping to "we have to protect the most unsafe weapon". It's all very fast and seeing how that was treated so early in the film gave me apprehensions that that's how everything else was going to be handled. More stunningly, the reprisal literally has zero slime, and the MIB fan in me was left gasping in shock as my mind raced back to those signature scenes that involved either Jones or Smith being covered in slime, in the original films.
