Once again he has brought amazing images to the silver screen for us to marvel at. But just like aliens, U.F.Os, and government conspiracies, the best part is usually what you didn’t see. MA interviews Rick about MIB and the beautiful aliens he created for it.

Rick also shares how several of his best creations were left out of the movie or were given smaller roles. This article is filled with many beautiful photos and illustrations you just have to see.
