After being detonated by the specialized critics and guaranteeing a modest box office in the world exhibitions, the film MIB: Men in Black – International became an unexpected success on Netflix. Mixing comedy and science fiction, the feature is already in the Top 10 in several countries, including Brazil.
MIB: Men in Black – International serves as a kind of reboot of the franchise starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Set in the same universe, the plot brings a different perspective on the world of aliens.
With a budget of 110 million dollars, the film made only 253 million – which was a big disappointment for Sony. In critical reception, the situation got even worse. MIB: International only secured a 23% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Even so, the film seems to have won the hearts of Netflix subscribers. See below all about its plot and star cast.
