Yes, the end of the first trailer uses this line: However, only K cocks the gun, before it is spoken.

For the reference, the test scene: Kay and Zed are observing the participants take the test, and discussing them. The whole thing is absurd: the chairs are good only to crouch inside, but not to do any work (like taking a simple test) in them; the test are sealed in a way that makes them hard to open (the paper rips easily, ...

Officially, Men in Black II received no funding, but some anti-smoking groups claim secret payments are regularly made by tobacco companies to filmmakers. Both Men in Black (1997) and Men in Black II (2002) show Marlboro cigarettes. Men in Black II was made after the 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, originally between the four largest United ...

I think the character in question is Munro Gabler A minor actor with 3 credited parts in the films Jersey Guy (2003), Ultraviolet (2001) and Passing Stones (2001) I came to this conclusion when I read his obituary (Munro died in 2014) and saw a photo of the character from Men in Black here (on the third page), uploaded by his daughter, with the text ...

He had to have passed the tests or he wouldn't have been an agent. These aren't real tests, they're psyche tests. Presented with a problem, how do you solve it? The tests are conducted in a way that conformists, with no imagination or natural problem-solving ability, will give predictable results. Only the most perceptive candidate will pass by applying ...

They always wipe the memory of everybody who is not a member of MIB. James had seen an alien, had seen alien weapons, was shown a location of a store operated by an alien who was selling illegal alien weapons, etc. Even though James was being brought in for testing, he was not yet a member of MIB who could be trusted with this information. Wiping his ...

There is no in-universe explanation about how he survived or is he an alien. However, the reason why David Cross plays the same role in both movies because the director Barry Sonnenfeld liked this. From Tastes like Chicken's: "DAVID CROSS interview by darby o'gill" (taken from this answer on Sci-Fi) d: I also noticed that you're going to be in Men ...

I think that @tylershads hit the Jeebs on the head: I wonder if, because he is already a part of that world, they entrust him with that information. Because releasing that, would expose himself as well? When J was erased, everything that consisted of his human existence was erased. If Jeebs only knew him through J’s law enforcement duties he probably ...

I honestly wouldn't read too much into the color change matter, as the neuralizer itself is really a sort of MacGuffin. They aren't the main driving point of the movie like an actual MacGuffin, but they exist simply to provide an explanation to the question, "What about the people who witness aliens or the problems they cause while on Earth?". We're never ...

Using the US government as an example: There are agencies and functions which exist within the Executive Branch of the government whose purposes are to perform certain intelligence gathering operations which may violate US law or which may create embarrassment for a sitting administration. These agencies and functions thus operate under "black budgets" and ...

It's Patricia McPherson. Couldn't find much about her role in the movie since it's a really small part, but in her filmography it shows that she appeared in the movie as K's wife: Men in Black (1997) (uncredited) - Elizabeth Ann Reston (K's wife)

Because he was pissed and it was all because of INS agents that Mikey got in trouble. Else he might have got away with it. And when he sees INS agent again while getting interrogated by K & D, he lost his temper and attacked the easy target out of anger.

It is never implied in the movie whether the color of the neuralizers are any indication of their technological progress. You can simply put them as having different colors without reading too much into it. There are many possibilities to your doubt, but I maintain that the colors were simply design choices, and nothing conscious. According to you, the mass ...

The movie explicitly states that J is in a time paradox, as evidenced by his craving for chocolate milk, which O says is a indication of time fracture.. So as a paradox, it's obviously not in a stable state. It should be noted that the alien Griffin is frequently observing "This must be the one where somethingsomethingsomething", obviously implying that ...

I would feel that you are right. I haven't thought about it before, but what you said does make sense. Definition of spiritual growth: There is no official and exact definition of spiritual growth. We - and many others - use personal spiritual growth as synonyms for other terms like e.g. personal spiritual development, to develop higher awareness or to ...
