Over two decades have passed since 1997’s Men In Black, in which Will Smith’s zany energy held its own alongside Tommy Lee Jones’ world-weary stoicism. The film managed to eek out two sequels while hauling back Jones’ retired Agent K (someone could write a think piece about all of Jones’ “ready to get the hell out of this business” characters) for more alien-fighting tasks. Yet as moviegoers are now aware, the franchise’s reboot unites a new pair who have some Thor: Ragnarok chemistry under their belts. Chris Hemsworth has already shared a behind-the-scenes look at himself with co-star Tessa Thompson while they threw some badass attitude, and he’s back with an action shot.

#FBF shooting MIB with my partner in galaxy protection @tessamaethompson when we were ripping aliens a new one. From memory, this shot was taken in between set ups when Tessa and I noticed some criminal activity on the streets in London. We immediately drew our laser guns and took down one of the largest crime syndicates in the city. Happy to say the streets of London are now safe again. You’re welcome world. #MIBInternational 🕶️ @meninblack
The film recently revealed its official title, Men In Black International, which presumably eschews any and all punctuation on purpose. Hemsworth’s caption includes a lovely claim that he and his partner were “ripping aliens a new one” while they were distracted by nefarious action on London streets. They weren’t limited to city scenes, however, for Thompson has posted this image of the two agents looking slick in the the Sahara desert.
“The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe,” reads the reboot’s official synopsis. “In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest, most global threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.”
Men In Black International arrives in theaters on June 14, 2019.
