Where Were You in 1997 When the First Men in Black Came Out?


Today, the Men in Black 3 trailer came out and that got me thinking about Men in Black (the first one), which came out in 1997! That was 14 years ago. Willow Smith wasn’t even born yet! Do you think the third installment will be just as fun as the first?

Watching that trailer and thinking about the first movie makes me nostalgic about 1997. That was a major year for pop culture, and for the shaping of my childhood. Would I still be the same person if I didn’t watch Leonardo DiCaprio proclaim he was the king of the world a thousand times in 1997? Probably not. So I’m going to re-live 1997 and everything I loved about it right now.
