Actor Will Smith’s double-decker movie trailer is stirring up controversy from residents in the SoHo neighborhood in New York, where Smith is filming his new film, “Men and Black III.” Local residents say the size of Smith’s trailer is taking up parking, making a lot of noise and casting off fumes.
Due to complaints, Mayor Blumberg ordered Smith to relocate his trailer to an empty parking lot about a half of mile away from the filming location.
According the NYPOST, Smith’s 1.8 million dollar, 1,150 square feet trailer is larger than most two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments in New York City. Rent for the luxury trailer is $9,000 a week.
The NYPOST reports, “The specially designed ride, nicknamed “The Heat,” includes a lounge, a movie room with a 100-inch screen, marble floors throughout, offices for his assistants and writing staff, a large bedroom and all-granite bathroom. It measures about 53 feet long, has 22 wheels and weighs in at around 30 tons.”
