Three Key Visual FX Sequences From Men in Black 3


Sony Pictures has provided with three cool making-of featurettes from Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3, starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin, showing how they did three of the key FX sequences from the sci-fi action movie.

Whether you’ve already seen the movie or plan on seeing it over this long holiday weekend, these neat behind-the-scenes videos give you a good idea of how much time and work have been put into the movie’s visual FX.

First, we have a sequence in which Will Smith’s Agent J takes on a giant fish-like alien along with his partner K, with commentary by Animation Supervisor Spencer Cook:

Next, we have a sequence showing how they put together J’s very literal “Time Jump” that takes him back to the year 1969 in search of K, narrated by Visual FX Supervisors Ken Ralston and Jay Redd:

Lastly, we have a sequence on how they did the “Monocyle Chase,” a 1969 sequence where Agent J and Josh Brolin’s younger Agent K chase after an alien perp, again with Jay Redd:

Men in Black 3 is now playing in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters.
