Will Smith is bringing "The Heat" to the streets of New York City.
The actor has set up a gigantic double-decker trailer, appropriately nicknamed "The Heat," in SoHo, where he's currently filming Men in Black III – much to the dismay of locals, according to the New York Post.
Many neighborhood residents and shopkeepers are outraged by the enormous vehicle and have complained to city officials, who say despite its size, the trailer does not violate any regulations. Late Wednesday, a rep for Sony Pictures Entertainment, the studio producing the film, told our friends over @PEOPLE, "the trailer has been relocated to private property."
At 1,150 square feet, the specifically designed ride is bigger than most cramped NYC apartments and rents for $9,000 a week.
While the star is renting a five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom apartment for $25,000 a month less than a mile away, he wanted to have all the comforts of the home on set with him.
