NEW YORK, May 11 (UPI) -- Some New Yorkers say they are outraged actor Will Smith's 53-foot-long trailer is parked on a Manhattan street while he shoots "Men in Black III."

The New York Post said neighbors have complained the $2 million double-decker trailer -- which has a full-service kitchen, lounge, a movie room with a 100-inch screen, marble floors, offices for Smith's assistants and writing staff, a large bedroom and granite bathroom -- is hogging considerable space in SoHo.

"It's ridiculous! I've lived here 26 years, and I've never seen anything this size," Myrna Reisman told the newspaper.

"This thing is like a duplex," Reisman said. "How would Will Smith feel if I parked that thing out in front of his house? People forget this is a residential neighborhood, not a film lot -- that thing is taking up half our gasoline reserve."

"It looks bigger than my apartment!" said Brigette Moreno. "The smell that comes along with it is disgusting. It's like living in a gas station. I really like Will Smith, but I would be embarrassed if that was my trailer. A little modesty goes a long way."

Despite the mammoth vehicle's unpopularity, the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting told the Post its presence on the street does not violate any regulations.
