"Men in Black: International" lands in theaters on Friday. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, co-star Tessa Thompson has provided some clarification. So far, critics are unimpressed with what is being called an unnecessary shrug of a film.

At the film's New York City premiere, Thompson ("Thor: Ragnarok", "Creed 2") said she pitched new titles for the film series, ComicBook.com reports. "It's essentially 20 years later. My character, M, who has this experience with an extraterrestrial, it happens sort of on the same timeline as when Tommy Lee [Jones] and Will [Smith]'s characters would have been working inside the (Men In Black) organization".

Joined by co-star Chris Hemsworth on a black carpet, Thompson shrugged off the gender issue at the world premiere of "Men in Black: International" on Tuesday in NY. "We'll see. They just now have joined [Disney's control]".

"I think we can change the name at some point", she added. "I'm not sure I would have known that I could do what I do if [he] hadn't been on television every week.or in this film originally".

Thiem would have felt confident going into the final having beaten Nadal on clay on his way to the title in Barcelona in April. Speaking about his injuries, he said: "I lost, I think, around 15 or even more Grand Slams in my career for injuries.

During a recent interview with Variety, producer Laurie MacDonald revealed that after Men in Black 3 came out in 2012, "we did all talk about the fact that we that we didn't feel there was another film..."

Hemsworth, in London on June 3, said it was "good to just hit the ground running, know each other's rhythms, have the chemistry already, have someone you trust to kind of just improv with". You can go, 'I've got that, that's interesting. On the contrary, it does not look like it's going to be a particularly impressive weekend at the movies. "I think it's an idea that even if you weren't aware of the first ones, will be very legible to the moviegoer".

Judging by the poor box office opening, it's in doubt that Tessa Thompson will be back for another Men In Black movie. Will you be seeing Tessa Thompson and fellow co-star Chris Hemsworth in action this weekend?
