    So here's the first trailer:

    MIB International

    First thoughts... Liam Neeson looks great. I'm wondering if they did some de-aging on him.

    Emma Thompson... Just gets more beautiful..

    Chris Hemsworth... Great actor, but now every line he delivers sounds like Thor. The pace, the diction... Not that I mind, but still, it's kind of distracting.

    Tessa Thompson... Intrigued by her backstory, or what little of it we see in the trailer. Looks like she has the chops to be an MIB agent and not such a fish out of water that Will Smith portrayed in his first outing.

    A couple of nods to the previous movies... So not bad.. Color me interested in seeing this.

    Hey now, it's not just Thor! Give some love to Valkyrie! :p

    Looks like it'll be fun with a great cast. I still haven't seen the last one and I haven't seen the first two in years.

    It's cool they made it another "branch" of MiB so they weren't obligated to get Will & Tommy. Still a good concept.

    Chris and Tessa were a lot of fun in Ragnarok, it seems that chemistry came with them.

    I'll admit, I wasn't too enthused about this idea when I first heard about it, but after seeing that trailer, wow! Complete 180. This movie looks like it might just very well be a pretty decent movie. I especially like how they're keeping the look of if consistent with the other MIB movies, but going off and doing their own thing. I'm definitely very interested in this movie now.

    Looks great. I love Thompson, and of late Hemsworth has become sort of a "quality tip-off" where humor is concerned. He was hilarious in Ghostbusters.

    Looks like fun. I'm glad it's a spin-off rather than a full on reboot. Loved the painting of J & K fighting the bug.

    I wasn't really caring about this before, but it looks fun. Nice to see the Worm Guys back too.

    Looks great! And this is the kind of route I originally envisioned a new Ghostbusters would take, via branches or franchises.

    And best of all, it doesn't exactly exclude them from possible cameos.

    It looks "fine" but I'm not sure I really care. Looks like the same old, fourth time around.

    And I wouldn't against that at all. Those two are all time greats. I hope this installment does really well so we'll get more.

    This looks like Netflix fun rather than drop-forty-bucks fun...but fun.

    I was staying in a hotel near to St Paul's Cathedral on the nights they were shooting the scenes in the Trailer. And while the street was blocked off for most people they couldn't stop us being there and watching but it looks like they've CGI'd us out. So much for stardom!

    Starring Thor? I think you mean George Kirk. This is a Trek forum for crying out loud! :)

    Ask Average Joe on the Street who Chris Hemsworth is best known for playing. Joe on the Street is more likely to say Thor than George Kirk.

    i know but with this being a Star Trek themed chat site, we should try to keep the references as close to that as possible.

    They should add that to the rules. :)

    But then we'd be required to refer to Tom Hardy as Shinzon. Which I won't.

    Will Smith has already said that he has no interest in reprising the role, and Jones was so miserable during the production of MIB2 that he told Sonnenfeld he wouldn't do anything more than a glorified cameo for the third movie--which is the entire reason they developed the time travel plot to begin with.

    Beyond that, both men are pretty reticent to do sequels in the first place (same reason Smith wouldn't do Independence Day: Resurgence; Jones did US Marshals because he was contractually obligated to).

    I would count on some clever nods to the originals, like the aforementioned painting, but direct cameos ... wouldn't hold my breath.
