We got the Men In Black, famous men who are black, and Zombies. Its a bizarre mix of movies at the cinema this weekend so let’s dig in!
MEN IN BLACK INTERNATIONAL
Men in Black: International (stylized as MIB: International) is a 2019 American science fiction action comedy film directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. It is a standalone sequel/spin-off/and a soft reboot from the Men in Black film series, which is loosely based on the Malibu/Marvel comics of the same name by Lowell Cunningham. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, Rafe Spall, Laurent and Larry Bourgeois, and Liam Neeson, along with Emma Thompson reprising her role from Men in Black 3 and Tim Blaney reprising his role as Frank the Pug from the first two films.
Shaft is a 2019 American action comedy film directed by Tim Story and written by Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie Usher, and Richard Roundtree. It is the fifth film in the Shaft film series and a sequel to the 2000 film with the same title. Unlike its predecessor, which was distributed by Paramount Pictures, this film will be produced by New Line Cinema and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, who owns the first three features and the TV series due to its acquisition of the pre-1986 MGM library when it absorbed Turner Entertainment through the Time Warner formation in 1996.
The Dead Don’t Die
The Dead Don’t Die is a 2019 American zombie comedy film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch.
