Men in Black - Mission: International
Tag – Same Job, New Team
A fan edit of Men in Black International to make it feel more like the original trilogy.

New Runtime - 1h30 with Credits
OG Runtime - 1h55

What has been removed?

  • Any refinance to H being changed
  • Any jokes by M at the franchise expense
  • M’s more annoying jokes. She still says jokes, but that’s not what defines her character
  • H is now more of the ‘straight man’ like K was in 1-3. H still light and does joke, but it’s not what defines his character
  • T is no longer evil – the film ends at the moment H and M are saved by T
  • Pawny has been removed as much as he could be

What has been added?

  • Mystery’s in History from MiB2 has been added at the beginning and the end
  • J and K watching this ‘episode’ from MiB2 has been added at the end
  • Music from MiB and MiB2 score and Will Smith songs from 1 and 2 have been added

What has been moved?

  • H and T saving the world from the Hive has now been moved to the middle
  • M being brought back to NYC and H gets promoted moved to being a mid-credit scene

It is done rendering. PM if you want to watch it.

Edit as of 9/11
After watching the edit with speakers and not headphones I have realized that the audio sounds from Men In Black 2 are soft. I will fix this and update. Also I forgot to remove a scene where C says H has changed in the war room. I will fix this and then edit this post again when 2.0 has been rendered. As it stands you can watch 1.0 if you’d like. You just need to turn the volume up beginning and the end f the movie to hear it clearly. Unless you are using headphones. As well as when the flashback scene starts and ends the black bars turn white. I need to fix that as well.

As of 9/11 816pm
I’ve fixed the audio, added in a scene or two to fix the transition errors, and removed the reference to H being different in the war room. It takes a few hours to render. 1.0 is still available, but 2.0 will be up tomorrow 9/12 in the pm.

As of 9/12 621pm
2.0 is live. If anyone would like to watch it, just ask 😃

To me, Star Wars is a brand that means quality, just because it’s a bad SW film, doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie.

This edit needs a lot more work than just a sound modification, lots of hard cuts with minimal if no transitions to cover the joints, some parts were out of synch, the use of “Black Suits Comin” didn’t completely drown out the established background music in the suit-up scene, there’s a bit near the end where K is clearly saying something but we miss what it is entirely.

It has legs though, the ideas are strong, and if the cuts could be smoothed over, I think you’ve definitely got an improved movie here, something more in line with the spirit of the original movies, and T saving the day is actually a much better ending and shows how flimsily tacked on the original climax was.

So yeah, cut it together a bit better and you’d be good to go.

I’ve cut things better, and alerted things so that the transactions look smoother. Ex, Shots of M sitting still, instead of half spinning that it was, and L has a reaction shot to M’s admittance that she’s a nobody.

I cut out as much of the og music from the suit-up scene but some still remains, what ever was behind L’s words. And I’ve fixed the driving scene to remove that music and added in my own car noises. Now you don’t hear that song at all.

K wasn’t originally saying anything, i just wanted to have it be a smooth transition of him walking away from the tv. I’ve now added in him saying “No” originally in the scene he says “wermguys” but now J says “looks like Spielberg’s work”. K replies “No”

Also the white fads have been fixed.

And yeah, MiBI had a lot of bad reshoots and on set rewrites by the actress that played M, and Chris didn’t like her changes and changed things back. That’s why H isn’t always an idiot in the original. The ending was changed and was the main reason for the late game reshoots. Between the studio meddling and the ego of the actress it’s amazing the film was even released.

for some reason my comment was a repot and not a reply, my bad
