Sworders - A Plethera of Postwar, Prints and Plywood
It was a film that grossed $624 million at the box office, adding to more than $1 billion dollar taken by the first two films in the franchise – together making Marvel’s Men In Black one of the most successful movie series in history.
The main characters, Agents J and K, played by Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin (as the younger K) are noted for the black suits and ties they wear. Now Ewbank’s Auctions will offer Will Smith’s black suit and tie, as well as his white Anto Beverly Hills long-sleeved shirt, from the 2012 film, Men In Black 3 for sale at their Entertainment auction in Surrey on 30th May with a price tag of £3,000-5,000. The label inside the trousers reads ‘Mr Smith’.
