Apple has a Will Smith downside.
The New York Occasions reporting on the lose-lose state of affairs at Apple over the discharge of Emancipation, a $120 million Civil Battle drama starring Will Smith that completed filming a couple of month earlier than Smith climbed on stage through the Oscars in March and slapped Chris Rock:
“In the event that they shelve the film, does that tarnish Apple’s status? In the event that they launch it, does it tarnish their status? … Hollywood likes a win-win state of affairs. This one is lose-lose.”
The movie is alleged to have generated an “overwhelmingly optimistic response” in non-public viewers screenings, in keeping with NYT’s sources, with Smith’s efficiency described as “volcanic.” Some at the moment are pushing for the movie’s launch earlier than the top of the 12 months to make it eligible for awards consideration.
