Will Smith faced with the greatest economic failure of his career

Smith was always selective when choosing sensational projects, something he recently lost.

Will Smith, for more than a decade was the most beloved actor for Hollywood fans, thanks to the great success of his films. In the last 10 years alone, the American actor has starred in 13 films.


Smith was always selective when choosing sensational projects, something he recently lost. But apparently, the interpreter of the renowned films such as 'Aladdin', 'Suicide Squad' or 'I am Legend' did not do very well with the premiere of 'Project Gemini' directed by Ang Lee, according to the figures.

The premiere that should be placed at the top of the movie box office, turned out to be a complete mistake, which the public has punished without shame.

The film earned a total of $ 20 million at the US box office in its first weekend. To this we add the 39 million dollars received worldwide, to achieve a total of 59 million.


But what is the real problem of its failure? The film spent only 140 million dollars in production, 60 million in distribution and advertising, for a final cost of up to more than 200 million dollars.

In addition, everything indicates that these figures will not change much in future weeks, so experts talk about the biggest failure at the economic level that American actor Will Smith is facing.

On the other hand, not everything is bad news for the actor, since the most recent production, released in May, by Walt Disney, 'Aladdín', which achieved a total collection of more than 1000 million dollars. For now, Smith will focus his attention and work on his next film, the third installment of the mythical saga 'Bad Boys' starring alongside Martin Lawrence, 'Bad Boys For Life', which will premiere on January 17, 2020.
