News of Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth collaboration on the new “Men In Black” has literally had us pinned to the edge of our seats since first hearing about the project in March. So of course, we couldn’t help but become dually pumped when, over the weekend, Thompson posted a sneak-peak photo of the upcoming film to her Instagram wall. You want to know how we can already tell there’s gonna be a big difference between the 90s original and the reboot? Tessa Thompson makes that suit look good.
Thompson’s spoiler pic hints that the new movie will take us to faraway lands.
In the photo, simply captioned “Buds in Black,” Thompson and Hemsworth treck through an isolated golden desert with the sun beating down their umbrellas and the signature black suits of the original franchise. While it’s unclear if the umbrellas are part of the ensemble or simply there to keep the two stars cool in between takes, we’re pretty sure this setting means the pair will be headed to a faraway planet like Mars. Which means that my excitement level for this movie just rose about 1,000 percent.
The last time we saw Thompson and Hemsworth on the big screen was in the third Thor movie, “Thor: Ragnarok,” where Hemsworth played the titular superhero character and Thompson came on the scene as the new superhero Valkyrie.
This time around, the two are set to star as humans (for once) who hunt aliens on Earth and hopefully save the universe (again).
Unfortunately, there isn’t much that we currently know about the new MIB. Just as with the “Jurassic World” spinoff, this new MIB movie is a spinoff, meaning that it takes place in the same universe as the first three. However, although the first three movies took place in New York City (where Will Smith’s Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones’ Agent K are based), filming for MIB has been happening in London and now Morocco, according to People.
Although there’s not much we know about the plot (besides that it also stars Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall and Rebecca Ferguson), fans are eagerly awaiting this film’s release. One fan of the actress commented in the post that Thompson and Hemsworth “should always make movies together.” Which, let’s be real, is not wrong.
Twitter reactions have been just as positive over the release of this new image.

Although there are still eight months before we can see Tessa Thompson suit up as Agent T (or whatever her name will be), here’s hoping that the sneak-peek photos will keep coming and that they will continue to be as fun-filled as what we’ve seen so far. If Thompson’s and Hemsworth’s chemistry in the MIB spinoff is anything like what we saw in “Thor: Ragnarok,” then this film is sure to be a hit. And I, for one, can’t wait.
