The movie star is headlining a new unscripted docuseries for YouTube that will following him on the path to getting super fit. The six-part series from YouTube Originals, tentatively titled Best Shape of My Life, will follow Smith's efforts to get into, as the name suggests, the best shape he's ever been in. According to the announcement released by the streaming platform on Tuesday, the series will follow the 52-year-old A-list movie star as he challenges himself "to improve every aspect of his fitness, from agility to power to recovery and more." The series will also feature guest stars including pro athletes, health and fitness experts, doctors and and other famed YouTube content creators. Smith's Best Shape of My Life is slated to premiere sometime next year. The announcement comes a day after Smith took to Instagram to reveal that he's currently in "the worst shape of my life," along with a snapshot showing off his physique. After the announcement, Smith posted another shirtless photo, writing, "This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works!" Source: https://www.google.be/amp/s/www.etonline.com/will-smith-lands-a-new-youtube-series-focused-on-his-fitness-journey-165035%3famp
  2. Hey Cookies! It’s been a long time. Seeing your name on the forum again brings back a lot of good memories. So sad to hear about your sister. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Times have changed. I’m a father now. A baby girl. I became a member here when I was still a teenager. Time flies.
  3. Do you agree with this list? https://theboombox.com/will-smith-albums/
  4. I wonder if we will ever hear those songs... like a “Lost Tapes” kind of album like Nas did. I miss the old days of reading all the new posts on here. I remember checking this board even when I was on holiday. Tried to go to an internet-cafe or a library just to log in and read all the latest news. How times have changed.
  5. Yeah I sometimes do the same thing. Search and read old posts and topics. This board has always been like a second home to me. I started posting here when I was still in high school. I’m 35 years old now and have a daughter now. Crazy how time flies. I check the board daily and try to post as much as I can. It’s just not the same. No new music, not much news.
  6. Alfonso Riberio Says ‘Bel-Air’ is ‘Not Even Based’ on the Original ‘Fresh Prince’: ‘It’s Based on the Theme Song’ “It’s not even based on the show. It’s based on the theme song. It’s a completely different thing. It’s drama. It’s not comedy. I have nothing to do with it so I don’t really know anything more,” he continued. “But I actually appreciate it even more than a reboot. Let’s take a concept and turn it into a different show.” Ribeiro played Will Smith’s polar-opposite cousin Carlton in the series that ran from 1990 to 1996. In September 2020, Smith and the cast announced that NBC’s Peacock streaming service gave them a deal with a two-season order of a reimagined version of The Fresh Prince. The new series is based on Morgan Cooper’s Fresh Prince mock trailer. The clip went viral prompting Smith and his team to create a concept set in modern-day Bel-Air. “Set in modern-day America, BEL-AIR is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air,” a release from Peacock said at the time. “With a reimagined vision, BEL-AIR will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions, and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.” source: https://www.complex.com/pop-culture/alfonso-ribeiro-new-fresh-prince-of-bel-air-reimagining
  7. Rock The House was released on April 7, 1987. That makes the first JJFP album 34 years old. How has the album aged in your opinion?
  8. I still need to start watching and if I have to believe Rotten Tomatoes I better start as soon as possible. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/amend_the_fight_for_america/s01
  9. Yeah, I have been listening to his music a lot lately. He's still my favorite rapper ever but I can't cope with all the social media stuff he does.
  10. I feel you on that one. I have a hard time listening to some songs where he mentions Jada or his relationship. Still, I hope the book will be about his life, music and movies and not just some inspirational bull****.
  11. Working with Hollywood actor Will Smith on his self-help/memoir book In 2018, Hollywood actor Will Smith took to social media to announce he began working on his first book, a self-help/memoir. To help him write his book, Will reached out to Mark Manson, the bestselling author of two self-help books for people who hate self-help books. The duo’s book is expected to be released in 2021. source: https://brand-minds.medium.com/mark-manson-bestselling-author-and-entrepreneur-is-coming-to-brand-minds-2020-fcdae5693bc8
  12. Anyone watching this? I haven’t started yet but it’s on my watchlist.
  13. Looks like they removed it again.
  14. I have been listening to their album “Chillin’ Like a Smut Villain” on Spotify lately. Love that early 90’s vibe. I wonder what ever happend to them? Did they release another album? Why weren’t they on any JJFP albums or on a Will Smith album?
  15. Will Smith Takes on Fast & Loose Crime Boss Thriller from Deadpool 2 Director Will Smith will play a crime boss in a new action thriller from Deadpool 2 and Hobbs And Shaw director David Leitch. Will Smith has been attached to a new project that will see him playing a crime lord. The film, titled Fast & Loose, is a drama that has Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw director David Leitch attached to helm the project. According to Deadline, a fierce bidding war is currently taking place between all the major Hollywood studios to snap up the rights to the planned movie. The logline for the project can be read below. "After the leader of an upper-echelon criminal organization suffers memory loss from an attack, he reunites with his crew, only to find that things aren't what he thinks they are. When John Riley (Will Smith) wakes up in Tijuana after being left for dead with absolutely no memory, he follows a string of clues to uncover his identity discovering he's been living two different lives: one, as a super-successful crime kingpin, surrounded by beautiful women, expensive toys, and a lavish lifestyle and the other as an undercover CIA agent, but with a puny salary, no family or home life whatsoever, and zero trappings of success. The problem is, he can't remember which of these two personas is his true identity, and, more importantly, which life he really wants to live." While the premise of the movie can make for a grounded, serious drama, along the lines of The Bourne Identity or Memento, David Leitch is known for injecting loads of style and flourish into his movies, which include Atomic Blonde and John Wick. Leitch is also noted for being able to use the natural charisma of his leading actors to create memorable characters. So a team-up between him and Will Smith feels like a match made in heaven. While Smith made his name in the 90s playing heroic roles, lately he has been leaning more into gray or anti-hero portrayals, such as the drunk and depressed superhero Hancock, the supervillain Deadshot, or an assassin in Gemini Man. Still, even the evilest roles manage to somehow become sympathetic characters in Smith's hands, and that is probably going to happen in Fast and Loose as well. One thing that the movie will doubtless feature is amazing action scenes. Leitch has proven he knows how to create an action sequence that feels real, even when it is taking place between an immortal assassin like Deadpool and a cybernetic warrior from the future like Cable. Leitch's fondness for injecting humor into his stories should also find a great use for Smith's excellent comic timing. Before the actor jumps into Fast and Loose, however, Smith will be seen in his next star vehicle where he teams with filmmaker Antoine Fuqua in the runaway slave drama Emancipation that is being produced by Apple. The movie will scratch a particular itch for Smith since he turned down the leading role in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained because the actor could not see eye-to-eye with Tarantino over the "vengeance" theme of the film. This comes from Deadline. source: https://movieweb.com/fast-and-loose-will-smith-director-david-leitch/?fbclid=IwAR3K95rr9CxXklmPejDrY5N8EqpP9opDg_pzhkUCfA1G7o97m80-ty9NK4A
  16. 'Amend: The Fight for America' Trailer: Will Smith Hosts Stirring New Netflix Docuseries The six-part docuseries will also feature Pedro Pascal, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Lane, and more celebs. Netflix has released the stirring trailer for Amend: The Fight for America, a six-part docuseries hosted by Will Smith. This timely docuseries will discuss the creation of, interpretation of, and practice of (and much, much more) the 14th Amendment. Amend is created by Robe Imbrianoand Tom Yellin, directed by Kenny Leon and Reinaldo Marcus Green, and executive produced by Smith, Terence Carter, Jana Babatunde-Bey, Jamal Watson, Tom Yellin, Robe Imbriano, Jonna Mclaughlin, Angus Wall, and Larry Wilmore. You may need to keep a tissue handy as you watch the trailer for Amend because it's a beautiful doozy. Amend will take viewers through the nation's history as we consider what the 14th Amendment means and how it has been interpreted legally, socially, and beyond since it was set down in 1868. With Smith a steady guiding force in his narration, we see a mix of archival footage, interview soundbites, and previews of readings of famous public figures speaking for or against the Fourteenth Amendment. Among the celebs who will appear to give these readings are Samuel L. Jackson, Mahershala Ali, Yara Shahidi, Pedro Pascal, Randall Park, and Diane Lane. Smith also shared a statement on Amend, emphasis the importance of this special docuseries which examines a core ideology to our nation's past, present, and future. "“I am honored to present 'Amend: The Fight for America.' We are living in unprecedented days as a society, as a country, and as a human family. I believe that the cultivation of personal and historical understanding is the imperative spark igniting the flames of desperately needed compassion and healing. As Americans, we endeavor to form a more perfect union that truly establishes justice and equality for all. I believe a deeper understanding of the 14th Amendment is a critical jumping off point. Our hope with this series is to illuminate the beauty that is the promise of America and to share a message of connection and shared humanity so that we will be able to better understand and celebrate our different experiences as Americans and promote progress toward the true equality promised to all persons under the 14th Amendment. I'm grateful to Netflix and the phenomenal group of people who came together both in front of and behind the camera to help us tell this story." Here's the official synopsis for Amend: The Fight For America : 'Amend: The Fight for America' is a six-part docuseries that explores the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution — which, in 1868, promised liberty and equal protection for all persons — as America’s most enduring hallmark of democracy. 'Amend' deploys a groundbreaking narrative format featuring a number of luminaries (Mahershala Ali, Diane Lane, Samuel L. Jackson, Pedro Pascal, Yara Shahidi, and more) breathing life into speeches and writings by the Fourteenth Amendment’s most ardent advocates and foes (including Frederick Douglass, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Andrew Johnson) with insights from an inclusive array of contemporary thought leaders and experts. Executive produced and hosted by Oscar-nominated actor Will Smith and Emmy-winning writer Larry Wilmore,'Amend' is a powerful, multimedia journey through American history that encourages viewers to question what a "United States" really means. source: https://collider.com/amend-the-fight-for-america-trailer-will-smith-netflix/
