SAME PLANET, NEW SCUM
MEN IN BLACK 2
IS BLASTING TO SPECIAL EDITION DVD AND VHS ON NOVEMBER 26, 2002
Culver City, Calif. , August 26, 2002 - On November 26, Men In Black 2 will take the universe by storm as Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment (CTHE) launches the intergalactic blockbuster box office hit in its planetary debut on Special Edition DVD and videocassette. The smash hit neuralized the box office competition, earning $90 million its first five days, blowing away Fourth of July weekend all-time records, including the record held by the original Men In Black (1997). The film has earned over $190 million domestically to date, helping to propel Sony's Columbia Pictures to the brink of a moneymaking record, exceeding $1 billion in ticket sales by mid-July, the fastest any studio has reached that mark.
Protecting the earth from the scum of the universe yet again, Men In Black II stars
Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones (Space Cowboys, Rules of Engagement), Academy Award nominated Will Smith (Ali, Independence Day) and Lara Flynn Boyle
(Happiness, Afterglow, "The Practice"), and also features Frank the Pug and other out-of-this-
world alien creatures who return to save the earth. The film is directed by Barry
Sonnenfeld (Wild Wild West, Men In Black, Get Shorty) and produced by Walter F.
Parkes & Laurie MacDonald (Gladiator, The Mask of Zorro).
"With Men In Black II as part of our blockbuster lineup of fourth quarter DVD
and VHS releases including Spider-Man, Mr. Deeds, Stuart Little 2 and XXX, we are
poised to break new home entertainment records," said Benjamin S. Feingold, President,
Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment and
Sony Pictures' Digital Studios Division. "Men In Black II will be a must-have for the
millions of fans that embraced the film and helped it become one of the most successful
releases of the year. "
