Men in Black 3 Time Capsule Tour

"Men in Black™ 3" Has Its Moment In Time As Time Capsule Begins Cross Country Tour

CULVER CITY, Calif., May 4, 2012 -- Yesterday, in anticipation of the nationwide release of the action adventure comedy Men in Black™ 3, in theaters May 25, the cast and filmmakers donated memorabilia from the film into a time capsule that will begin a cross country tour next week. Following the tour, the time capsule will be locked away for 43 years – mirroring the jump back in time from 2012 to 1969 that Agent J experiences in the film.

The Men In Black 3 time capsule was dedicated at an event at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, where the movie's stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin, as well as director Barry Sonnenfeld, contributed a neuralyzer, sunglasses, and other props and costumes from Men in Black 3 to the time capsule.
