Timed to the theatrical release of the third movie in the science-fiction franchise, the high-definition Blu-ray debut of Men in Black II comes with a bunch of special features, although no new ones.

In their second adventure, they take on a renegade Kylothian monster, Serleena, disguised as a lingerie model (Lara Lynn Boyle, TV’s The Practice), who is searching for The Light of Zartha and has it out for Rosario Dawson (Zookeeper).

Tony Shalhoub (TV’s Monk), Patrick Warburton (TV’s Rules of Engagement), Rip Torn (American Cowslip) and David Cross (TV’s Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret) also star in the comedy movie.
