Paying Will Smith $50m would have just resulted in a further $50m loss for Fox. He would not have added anything to the gross. He is nothing now. Is KJ not aware of Focus, Concussion, and After Earth?


That's right. I forgot he fought aliens in all of those.

You're clutching at straws if you think just because he didn't fight aliens in those three movies that somehow people would give a shit if he were fighting aliens in Resurgence. Nobody cares about Will Smith anymore. And it wasn't just Smith that fought aliens in 1996. Goldblum also did, and he was a rather well-received character, but he had little-no effect on this sequel either.

No, no one cares about his dramatic work when he isn't involved with explosions or fighting aliens (at least not since Seven Pounds). When he does...

2012 - MIB 3 - $179m/$624ww
2008 - Hancock - $224m/$624ww
2007 - I Am Legend - $256m/$585ww

I think Fox would take those MIB 3 numbers right about now.

Bodes well for Suicide Squad.

His problem is he's not as prolific as he once was and he's making smaller movies (if that can really be seen as being a problem).

And yes, Goldblum was well received as well and that makes them comparable as draws. :funny:

Will Smith made a name at a time many black people were not casted in major roles. He can no longer use that to his advantage. I think IDR would have benefited from his presence but definitely not $50m if that figure is true.
