Men in Black

It’s rewind time! Agent J (played by Will Smith) and Howard the Alien are here to investigate alien activity! Facing all-new threats they’ve never seen before — and a few that they definitely have — the pair will need the best of the best of MIB tech to turn their opponents into slime. Neuralyzers in hand, they will stop at nothing to keep the public safe from all extraterrestrial threats… except for Howard. He’s cool.

Invite received from on high, Adam Levine aims for the lead! Actually, at first, he wanted to be one of the judges for the tournament, but after he failed the interview by disapproving every contestant, we had to deny him such a position.
