Men in Black (Barry Sonnenfeld, 1997 / DCP)
Director Barry Sonnenfeld’s sci-fi comedy based on the hugely popular comic book was one of the biggest blockbusters of the 1990s, thanks in no small part to the unusual (yet totally perfect) pairing of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. Also starring Linda Fiorentino, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rip Torn, and Tony Shalhoub. A streetwise NYPD detective joins a secret organization that polices extraterrestrial affairs on Earth.
