Will Smith's movie-set trailer in Manhattan is so big it's even taking up the front page of today's New York Post.

"BLOCK BUSTER," declares the cover. "MONSTER THAT ATE SOHO," trumpets the story inside.

"Will Smith has found a trailer to match his massive ego," says the opening line.

The 1,150-square-foot double-decker 30-ton box, street-parked while Smith films Men in Black III, "includes a lounge, a movie room with with a 100-inch screen, marble floors throughout, offices for his assistants and writing staff, a large bedroom and all granite bathroom" and "a full-service kitchen with arched windows and matched-grain Italian cherrywood cabinetry," according to the Post.

"It's ridiculous! I've lived here 26 years and I've never seen anything this size," said one 62-year-old resident.

And just around the corner at Broome and Greene Streets on Tuesday was a second Smith trailer, a 55-footer with a full-size gym.

The former West Philly rapper also is renting a nearby luxury apartment, the Post says.

Other residents took shots at Smith's lack of modesty and his thoughtlessness about hurting local businesses, but a city official said the trailer complies with permits.

"Gettin' Piggy Wit' It" reads a caption under a picture of Smith and costar Tommy Lee Jones strolling past the luxury superbox.

Men in Black III, reportedly set for release next May, would be Smith's first starring role since Seven Pounds came out in late 2008 - and ended his string of eight straight films that grossed at least $100 million.

Smith apparently put his film career on hiatus to help launch daughter Willow's music career ("Whip My Hair") and further son Jaden's film career, with the likes of Karate Kid.

Forget rumors that Smith might wind up as a judge on Fox's X Factor - the last spot was just filled with Paula Abdul.
