TAKE TWO WEEKEND FIRST: Movie Comings & Goings - Building Better Aliens

by Tony Rutherford , HNN Entertainment Editor

One of the coolest aspects of Men in Black 3 is Rick Baker's army of retro aliens that greet Agent J (Will Smith) upon his arriva

l in 1969 to save Agent K (Josh Brolin/ Tommy Lee Jones) from being assassinated. Sony Pictures has released a new featurette that focuses on Rick Baker's amazingly detailed work in Men in Black 3. Watch as a bevy of Drive-In inspired extraterrestrials come to life at the hands of a true master. Men in Black 3 comes to theaters Friday, May 25th, 2012 and stars Will Smith, Tim Burton, Alice Eve, Josh Brolin, Justin Bieber, Tommy Lee Jones, Emma Thompson, Bill Hader. The film is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.

The scenario for "Chernobyl Diaries," the week's second wide release, may be fictional, but the film treads on real worries , especially when recalling the Fukishima disaster last year in Japan. Although the mainstream media hardly comment, those who have ventured onto alternative paths have found discussions and predictions that  question the use of nuclear energy not only in Japan but in America and across the world. 

"China Syndrone" chronicled a melt-down at a nuclear plant prior to the near miss. The flick came out to little response, but after the accident in Pennsylvania, the filmmakers (and marketers) took on the sense of oracles (i.e. future predictors ).

Will "Chernobyl" go for the gold in shaky camera twists? What mutant lurks in the abandoned ghost towns? Or, do the  terrors come from mortals ?
