Liam Neeson Is Now Fighting Aliens In New 'Men In Black' Trailer

There's a new trailer for the upcoming Men in Black film - entitled Men in Black: International - featuring a stellar cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson.

The latest trailer features a voiceover from Neeson, who plays the head of MIB Great Britain, revealing that the operations of the dark-suited alien hunters are not just limited to the United States of America.

The film will be released in June 2019 through Sony Pictures.

With Neeson entering the world of global extra-terrestrial fighting, it now adds to a huge list of stuff that has happened in his career. As he says in the trailer: "The universe has a way of leading you to where you're supposed to be at the moment you're supposed to be there."

Never has that turn of phrase been more true than in the case of Liam Neeson.

In fact, he's been a Jedi Knight (Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace), he's trained superheroes like Batman (Batman Begins) and been the actual, honest to God, king of the fantasy land of Narnia (The Chronicles of Narnia).

On top of that, he's also rescued his daughter from international terrorists like 1,000,000 times, been part of a mutiny on the high seas, lived in the time of cowboys - you get the idea.

Basically, fighting aliens as part of an international bureau is all in a day's work for Liam Neeson.

The latest instalment in the MIB franchise looks like being the summer blockbuster of the year in 2019. It's directed by The Fate of the Furious F. Gary Gray and - as previously mentioned - has a star-studded cast lined up.

Oh, and some bloke called Steve Spielberg is going to be an Executive Producer. Hopefully this could be the career launch-pad that this young up-and-comer needs.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Will Smith ad Tommy Lee Jones are coming back, however.

A while back, Chris Hemsworth offered up a few crumbs about what the plot could be like. The Australian actor told Variety: "These are obviously some big, big shoes to fill, so we're working our butts off on it to make something pretty epic and fun.

"They're trying to change up the locations, make it feel unique and different to the last ones as well.

"So, I think you might even see some different countries, maybe. Some different cities than you've seen in the previous Men in Black movies."

Well, we know that now. Let's wait to find out more...
