Two of Tennant ’s Green Machines were filmed as part of an alien fight scene for the third instalment of the Science Fiction motion picture “Men in Black 3”, which features Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in their reprising roles Agent J and K, respectively.
The film utilises Tennant’s 636HS Green Machine Street Sweepers, which were painted black with silver lining. The machines appear in the film following a fight scene between Smith, Jones and an alien.
In the Men in Black trailer, Tennant’s Green Machines can be seen sweeping up alien bodies and carting away a large computer generated fish. Local Tennant technicians were at the movie set to observe and maintain the operations of the equipment. The Green Machines had operated smoothly without any problems or obstacles.
Men In Black 3 is expected to release in May 2012.
