That interview was so bizarre and clueless, it was hilarious. It almost read as a parody of some faux-intellectual hipster talking nonsense. I feel bad about hating these kids, but it's not coincidence that Will's career suffered when they started getting a career of their own. Hopefully, Will is done doing projects with them.
Just general impressions I read on twitter and different forums, but seemed like the movie had an ending that was unsatisfying. One guy didn't buy the romantic chemistry. The release date is weird, because it's been done filming for awhile. If it was good, it would be a good movie to play during Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday, because there really isn't any non-prestige adult movies coming out for the rest of the year. It could of been a movie for adults looking for something fun during the holidays. It's current release date is after Valentine's Day and President Day Weekends, but before most schools are out on spring break. It's not a weekend that has traditionally been busy for movies.
After MIB 3, After Earth, and all the stuff with Jaden, lots of people are negative on Will. He needs this to not just make money, but also be good. I have my doubts with that release date, and so-so buzz from test screenings.
"And following that, she’ll play Will Smith’s wife in Concussion, the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith), the forensic neuropathologist who first discovered extensive brain damage in NFL players and tried to put a stop to it."
It is really strange...they were casting a little African American girl to play the daughter based off Will Smith being the lead. Now, with the film set to shoot in less than eight weeks, he bolts! Does nothing for the reputation that Will is a control freak on sets. I have no idea if this movie would of been any good, but the script writer is solid veteran of Hollywood hits like Jurassic Park and Mission Impossible.
