Home Secretary Theresa May has revealed she is a fan of the Men In Black movies starring Will Smith.

The Hollywood star's third outing as the alien-tackling Agent J had its UK premiere last week and Mrs May told MPs she thought the first two films in the series were good.

Her comments came as she faced calls for tighter controls on cinema advertising.

Labour's Nick Smith told her: "Binge drinking by young people is a serious public health issue.

"Men In Black 3 will be on our screens soon and cinemas are important channels for alcohol marketing.

"Will you take the lead on more effective controls on advertising in cinemas?"

Mrs May replied: "I'm not quite sure why you felt that Men In Black 3 had to be promoted in your question, good though the first two Men In Black films were."

She added: "The issue you raise about alcohol advertising is of course something we have been looking at in relation to the alcohol strategy but I will certainly take your point about cinemas on board."
