Men in Black 3, as Directed by Wes Anderson

Some of the most anticipated releases of this past month were Men in Black 3, with its blockbuster release, and Moonrise Kingdom, debuting at Cannes. [Watch a slightly boozey Bill Murray give an utterly hilarious tour of the set] On the surface, these movies could hardly be any more different, but one pioneering movie editor has mashed them together, taking clips, text, and audio to show us a trailer for Men in Black 3 as if it were directed by Wes Anderson.

Among contemporary directors, Wes Anderson has the most noticeable film style and he maintains it throughout his films: primary colors, attention to detail, folk and classical music, shots from above, and Bill Murray are just some of the pieces. Men in Black 3, not to reveal too many plot points, involves J (Will Smith) traveling back to the 60s to rescue K (Tommy Lee Jones/Josh Brolin). The aesthetics of the 1960s setting, along with some deliberate editing on the part of the clip-maker, allow the two to flow together surprisingly well. Watch it below.

And here you can watch one of my favorite supercuts, entitled “Wes Anderson // FROM ABOVE.”
