This latest Men in Black sequel is set in the same universe as the first three Barry Sonnenfeld-directed hits, which grossed a combined $1.6 billion worldwide, but centers on a pair of franchise newcomers: hotshot Agent H (Hemsworth) and rookie Agent M (Thompson), who must combat shapeshifting aliens infiltrating the Men in Black.
F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious) directs from a script by Transformers: The Last Knight scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Men in Black series producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald again produce alongside series executive producer Steven Spielberg (Ready Player One).
