I was invited to attend an advanced screening of Men In Black, but all opinions are my own.
Yesterday I was invited to attend an advanced screening of Men In Black International and this movie and car enthusiast is here to share a few reasons why you will love this explosive combination!
Lexus & Men In Black
I was lucky enough to get an up close look at the 2020 RC F.
You will have a chance to see many vehicles throughout the movie, which makes the plot, even more explosive!
The brand has an alien-fighting, transforming spacecraft appearing in Men in Black: International.
The Lexus QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer uses Quasar Power Source Technology so that it can travel anywhere in the universe within seconds.
This sci-fi powertrain allows for acceleration to 60 miles per hour in 0.0000000000001 nanoseconds.
The Inter-Galactic Positioning System means that you never get lost in space and you’re always ahead of your enemies.
If you meet up with aliens, don’t worry because the QZ 618’s Amazon Alexa assistant understands seven trillion languages, a dream tool, for a translator like me.
On the inside, there are transforming seats with 31-point harnesses so the chairs can fit any alien species. Don’t worry about hitting anything, either, because the Lexus Safety System+ includes a force field.
On Earth, the QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer transforms into a 2020 Lexus RC F to blend in with traffic. The new updated model has a beautiful face with trendy headlights and a revised grille.
Here’s what to expect: a 5.0-liter V8 makes 472 horsepower (351 kilowatts) and 395 pound-feet (535 Newton-meters) of torque.
An eight-speed automatic makes this, the perfect vehicle for the movie.
In its jet form, the QZ 618 retains the shape of the RC F’s spindle grille but the rest of the design is completely modified.
Here are a few things I love about the movie (free of spoilers):
Women Are Definitely In
Loved how they added Women to Men In Black!
Loved the subtle jokes, innuendos and all the humor created around the franchise.
In my opinion, it was in a very tasteful way, with one of my favorites, Emma Thompson (Agent O) now being a super bad a…boss and Tessa Thompson co-leading all the action with Chris Hemsworth! #WomenInBlack Rocks!
Love how the women wore “the suit” in a super trendy way!
They’ve added the cuteness factor with Pawny
But don’t expect explanations on his role on the plot, I will leave that for you to find out!
One of my absolute favorite action actors joins the cast, as High T, bringing an unexpected turn of events to the movie!
Love that they included not only US, but London, Paris and Marrakesh as locations building the perfect diversity as a backdrop for Alien x Men battles.
La Tour Eiffel plays a big role in the movie, but that is another no spoiler, I will leave it up for you to check it out!
I saved the Best For Last: Chris Hemsworth in Men In Black
You already know I am a SUPER fan, but I wanted to share that Men In Black: International showed us a new side, taking his action skills to the max!
Chris Hemsworth is Agent H, who is widely admired among the MIB for his skills – and his incredible good looks. Years earlier, H and another operative, High T (Liam Neeson), saved the planet from an alien threat.
H has since been resting on those laurels, and to some he’s become a little lax and overconfident. “H now feels empowered and entitled to operate under his own banner,” notes Hemsworth.
“He has an over-abundance of self-confidence, as well as a sense of humor, and prefers to avoid doing things by the book. This rubs his fellow agents the wrong way, so there’s a bit of friction within MIB London. H has gotten away with that for a long time, so he’s due for a wake-up.”
MEN IN BLACK™: INTERNATIONAL
The Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. In this new adventure, they tackle their biggest, most global threat to date: a mole in the Men in Black organization.
The Men in Black have expanded to cover the globe, but so have the scum of the universe. And to keep us safe, decorated Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and determined rookie M (Tessa Thompson) are partnered – an unlikely pairing that just might work.
As they face a new alien threat that can take the form of anyone, including MIB agents, they must join forces on a globetrotting adventure to save the agency and ultimately the world.
Building upon the idea that there are aliens from other worlds living among us, MIB: International introduces new agents, weapons, aliens and locations, while bringing together some of today’s most in-demand and talented actors, including Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson as the titular heroes, Agents H and M, with Emma Thompson reprising her role as the head of MIB, and Liam Neeson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani also taking on key roles.

Beautiful and powerful experience. I would love to be there with you, GRL.
I am so glad I had the chance to see the movie with you. I loved it first of all, and I really enjoyed hanging out in the Lexus Intersect space taking photographs of the car, the props and the amazing space Lexus has!
We are excited to see the film despite some of the reviews. I love Chris Hemsworth.
1) I can’t WAIT to see this movie. 2) I’m totally jealous that you got that close to that car. It’s AMAZING and perfect for the movie.
Now that is a high-tech ride and it looks so cool! I’m definitely going to see this movie so I can learn more about those characters!
I can’t wait to see this with my family. I love that they have women now and I can’t wait to see Chris Hemsworth in this roll.
