Either him or his handlers have a terrible time picking scripts. I haven't seen After Earth, but it can't be that bad. I mean he don't need the money so turning down blockbusters at the moment won't hurt his brand. Maybe he needs a movie like Denzel did with Training Day, to restart his appeal....you really don't see Will branch out enough in roles
Which is why he's stepping away from taking films and scripts that come with the pressure of "instant box office blockbuster".. It's why he said he needs to pick more "dangerous" risky roles, i.e things he hasn't normally done in the past...

I just think he failed on the Sci-Fi route, I think people are over that.. He needs something motivational for these current economic times, something in the mold of Pursuit of Happiness, hopefully he stays away from the chick flick sh*t.

Agreed after MIB 1 & 2, and independence day he should have given up on that route. I know him passing on the matrix had to hurt but as said in this thread i don't see the matrix trilogy being the same movie with the same impact if will was neo

Story about nothing. So he's moving on to another type of movies. Ok? Huge money out of them will still be expected.

People shouldn't even count After Earth against Will, dude was trying put his son on, he wasn't even the main focus of the flick.

Will isn't a dunce though, he knows we aint feelin Jaden like that.

Best believe it won't happen again.
Which was dumb on his part, cause his son was already on with the Karate Kid remake joint. Just should have made a part 2.

i can't knock will too much for turning down the matrix. The premise seemed kind of out there back then you're right him turning out down was for the best.

Will Smith does not like when his movie opens in anything less than first-place, so much so that we may not be seeing him in a blockbuster any time soon.

The actor we've come to know as a blockbuster staple revealed in a recent interview with Digital Spy that he's considering moving away from big-budget movies. Speaking of "After Earth" Smith said, "It's been an absolute necessity that the movie be a blockbuster, but I think I'm going to start moving out of that and finding more danger in my artistic choices."

The only dangerous artistic choice the Fresh Prince has made of late was the aforementioned "After Earth," which opened at No. 3 this past weekend with only $27 million. In the Digital Spy interview, which apparently took place before the weekend ended, Smith said that his biggest filmmaking fear was, "the movie opening at No. 2."

Despite this comments, don't expect the Prince to make a sudden switch to indie films soon, as he still has upcoming sequels planned for his classic big-budget movies, including "I, Robot 2," "Hancock 2," and "Bad Boys 3."


Bad Boys 3

When I saw Will not even able to explain the movie that well, I knew it wouldn't be interesting. Stop experimenting with dumb ideas, when there are straight forward movies to be made that are guaranteed money earners. I see "Bad Boys 3" doing well easily, dont know about Robot 2 and Hancock 2 those would be slight risks as this point. Stop with all this over the top Imma save the world type movies. Unless its an established character/movie, like these Marvel and DC movies, Star Wars, etc.. And also work with other huge actors.

Even with Jaden, it clearly what they should have done was Karate Kid 2 (If that aint next for him, then I dont know what Will is doing).

Didn't know so many people didn't like i-robot. It was a good movie in my opinion. I guess because the concept wasn't that far fetched from a future reality. I agree Jaden ain't no Will but if you had the clout in Hollywood that Will does you'd try to put your son on too. It's in his blood so I'm sure he'll get better over time if he doesn't choose another route down the line. The scrips directors choose for Will keep him limited. You can tell it's much more depth to his thought process. Dude needs to direct some of his own movies.

I just don't see will pulling off neo like Reeves did. Better for the movie audience IMO

strangely enough i think that role fit him better...whether that's good for will or not idk

I-robot was an okay sci-film but it's not good enough to warrant a sequel. Same for Hancock. Both movies should be left alone. He's not gonna make a better sci-fi flick than independence day or MIB1 especially if it's just will and the fam. Drama or comedy should be where he goes and a villain role wouldn't hurt (like others mentioned Denzel did)
