Sony Pictures Signs Up "Pitbull" For MEN IN BLACK 3 Theme Song

Were you hoping for a new rap song by Will Smith for Men in Black 3? Afraid not! Sony Pictures has issued the following press release, revealing that the theme song will be called "Back In Time" as performed by Pitbull.

Follow Josh:
By Josh Wilding - 3/22/2012

The theme song to the highly anticipated action adventure comedy Men in Black(TM) 3, titled "Back In Time," has been written and recorded by RCA Records/Polo Grounds Music/Mr. 305 recording artist Pitbull, it was announced today by Lia Vollack, President of Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures. The song will be available as a digital single and released to radio on March 26. Men in Black 3 will be released in 3D in theaters nationwide on May 25, 2012.

"Back In Time" was written for the film by Armando C. Perez (Pitbull), Marc Kinchen, Adrian Trejo and Urales Vargas and features a sample of the 1950s hit "Love is Strange," written by Sylvia Robinson, Ellas McDaniel and Mickey Baker, which went to #1 for the R&B duo Mickey & Sylvia.

"It's an incredible honor to be a part of such an amazing franchise as Men in Black and I have so much respect for Will Smith, especially with our similar musical backgrounds," says Pitbull. "Wanting to keep the music fun yet modern, we used the slogan of the movie and flipped it back into the song that 'in order to understand the future, you have to go back in time.'"

Barry Sonnenfeld, the director of the film, added, "My 19-year-old daughter turned me on to Pitbull. I'm thrilled that he wrote such a great song for our movie that totally gets it."

In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind. Barry Sonnenfeld directs the film. The film's screenplay is written by Etan Cohen, based on the Malibu Comic by Lowell Cunningham. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald produce, and Steven Spielberg and G. Mac Brown are the executive producers.

well that's gonna be shit,not a fan mr will"getting jiggy with it"smith but why isn't he doing the theme tune.
SuperDude001 - 3/22/2012, 4:31 PM
Okay I was really looking forward to this film, but there was only two things I really cared about that I didn't know if it would happen:
1) Will Smith new song.
2) The 'Monk' guy returning.

So now this film is doomed!!! Now that may be an over-reaction but they got Pitbull...of all musicians out there they got Pitbull...the man who can't make a good song to save his life. And now he'll destroy MIB.

That's disappointing. I'm a fan of Pitbull, but Will Smith needs to do the theme song.

@teabag There is a lot of awesome going on in that picture.
DEATHbyEXILE - 3/22/2012, 4:59 PM
@tea lol...the 90's ruled
Bane2099 - 3/22/2012, 5:03 PM
I'm surpised, with Will being in the film, I'd have thought for sure one of his kids would've done the theme song LoL

mgeoff88 - 3/22/2012, 5:10 PM
@Gaston That's why the only thing I miss from the 90's is the cartoons. The fashion during that time was hard on all of us. :P

blueorangeny - 3/22/2012, 6:54 PM
I'm not shocked. Today's music has gone to shit. It's a shame Fresh Prince won't create a song, I guess...he's moved on.
GLprime2814 - 3/22/2012, 7:12 PM
Aawww was really hoping for another catchy song and dance.
Jimmy316 - 3/22/2012, 7:24 PM

SolidSnake007 - 3/22/2012, 7:41 PM
OH GOD..... Well Didn't have high hopes for this movie anyways.
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 3/22/2012, 8:29 PM
Pitbull sucks so bad. Should've had Beneath the Massacre do the theme song.
CPBuff22 - 3/22/2012, 9:09 PM
Meh... not a Pitbull fan. Would have liked the Fresh Prince to get back on the mic.
dancingmonkey08 - 3/22/2012, 9:16 PM
HOLD THE [frick] ON!

FIRST, no Will Smith is the worst idea, it became a damn tradition to have him do the MIB songs

NOW. YOU. GET. [frick]ING. PIT-[frick]ING-BULL! THE GUY HAS NO [frick]ING TALENT & HIS MUSIC IS UTTER GARBAGE, [frick] YOU SONNENFELD & YOUR IDIOTIC DAUGHTER
JillValenfield - 3/22/2012, 10:14 PM
Pitbull is awesome! DALE
ComicGAGA - 3/22/2012, 11:22 PM
Pittbull? You mean they're going to have that little dog from MIB II do a rap song?

;)
AvatarIII - 3/23/2012, 2:17 AM
it goddamn better be at least featuring Will Smith, he's the ONLY rap artist I like.

should have got Jada Pinkett Smith/Wicked Wisdom to do a heavy metal song for the movie, I would have been soooold.
HavocT - 3/23/2012, 3:02 AM
"hoping for a new rap song"?

That PitBull is so original. "Back in Time" with a sample from "Love is Strange" in a time travel movie. Starring Will Smith.

I just lost all respect and expectations for this movie. I shoulda f#ckin known too, MiB was always "meh, kids dribble".

"Mr. 305" my f#ckin ass, what a Bitch. AND I AM IN FLORIDA.
