'Men In Black 3' Filming Turns Back Time In Brooklyn Heights

The third installment of Men in Black takes Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back to the 1960s to hunt down aliens, with Josh Brolin playing the younger version of Jones. Men In Black III (ugh, in 3D) hits theaters May 25, 2012.

The cast has been filming in Brooklyn Heights (along with Cobble Hill, Coney Island and Williamsburg) for the past several days, taking the neighborhood along for the ride as subway signs at Borough Hall have been magically transformed into those that appeared from the 1940s to the 1970s.
Tonight, ironically walking back from seeing a movie, filming was taking place with dozens of '60's-era cars rolling down Court  Street. No sign of the stars, but we did see aliens lit up like skeletons roll down the street on a bicycle.
