Ever wondered where the Men in Black are based? Well, look no further

Men in Black: International hits cinemas worldwide today and unlike previous MIB films which were set solely stateside, this new spin-off takes the franchise to some totally new locations.

One of which is the new MIB headquarters. In previous films, the MIB was seen running purely from New York city, now though, a new location is needed.

But where is the MIB headquarters in Men in Black: International?

What’s Men in Black: International all about?

Men in Black: International sees Molly (Tessa Thompson), a young woman stumble upon the Men in Black after the disappearance of her parents when she was little more than a child. 

Molly joins the mysterious Men in Black and becomes Agent M. When a new alien threat emerges, Agent M is sent to London to meet up with Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and Agent T (Liam Neeson) at the UK branch of MIB.

Together M and H must uncover this new alien threat and fight to protect the future of Earth on a global scale. 

Where is the MIB headquarters?

In the original trilogy, which is focused very much on New York city sees the HQ of the organisation located in the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel ventilation building, which is a real place and can be found at 504 Battery Place.

Although we’re almost certain there isn’t a secret organisation of alien-busting Men in Black in there, or maybe that’s what they want us to think.

However, in this new Men in Black movie, we get to see more of the organisation, including its UK headquarters in London.

In the several trailers for the film, we’re not shown an exact location for the new HQ although we do get a glimpse of an MIB train (of sorts) travelling under the River Thames and there are plenty of shots of St. Paul’s Cathedral in the trailers as well.

Putting that together, we would have to assume that means the UK HQ is located underneath the great London landmark.

Men in Black: International beams its way into cinemas today, June 14th, 2019.
