Let me first put out an apology to my people in Philly. Then to Will Smith. I don’t know what was the motivation behind this but people are dying in Philly and this did not help at all.

This is what the song would sound like if he’d stayed in West Philadelphia.

Can wait to see what he does next. Even more amazing is that his son is probably going to be even better and bigger than him.

NEW YORK — No name on the marquee was more pleasing to theater owners in 2008 than Will Smith, according to a survey of movie exhibitors. Smith, star of “Hancock” and “Seven Pounds,” was voted the star who generated the most box office revenue for theaters in an annual survey by Quigley Publishing Co.
Smith is only the second black actor to be chosen in the Quigley poll, which since 1932 has asked movie exhibitors to vote on the 10 stars who brought in the most business. Sidney Poitier topped the poll in 1968.
Smith’s superhero summer blockbuster, “Hancock,” grossed $228 million. “Seven Pounds,” currently in theaters, has pulled in a somewhat lackluster $39 million in two weeks.
Following Smith, in order, were Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man,” “Tropic Thunder”), Christian Bale (“The Dark Knight”), Shia LaBeouf (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”) and LaBeouf’s “Indiana Jones” co-star Harrison Ford.
The top 10 were rounded out by Adam Sandler, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig.
Last year’s winner, Johnny Depp, who didn’t have a film released this year, didn’t make this year’s poll, nor did seven-time winner Tom Cruise.
Anne Hathaway (“Rachel Getting Married”) was voted the top “star of tomorrow” along with Chris Pine of “Bottle Shock.”
I must say I was a fan of both movies and would pay the outrageous $12.50 to see another installment. Martin the ball is in your court!

wants to make more Bad Boys movies.
Will says, “I would do up to Bad Boys 6 if I could. I have so much fun working with Martin Lawrence. I love Miami.
“It’s like that little boy fantasy is fast cars and girls and I got the gun and the bad guy’s always lose. It’s like I would make Bad Boys forever if I could.”
Showbiz Spy reported yesterday that Will is currently in talks for Hancock and I Am Legend
Mr. Smith strikes once again with his latest movie Seven Pounds. Can he once again rule at the box office like he has for the last eight movies he has starred in that have made at least $100 million dollars. I would not bet against him at all!!
Tom Cruise’s African American adopted son Connor will debut as an actor in an upcoming Will Smith film called “Seven Pounds” according to Reuters.
This news is somewhat ironic because I thought I saw somewhere that Cruise’s former wife Nicole Kidman(expecting her third child) wanted her adopted kids out of Scientology.
Well in any case it seems that the acting bug has bitten Connor and what a better opportunity to be in a film with Will Smith. More below:
Despite his pedigree, he had to audition for the Columbia Pictures project, People said.
“Tom is so proud of Connor,” the magazine quoted a source as saying. “He’s proud of him for really doing this on his own.”
Cruise and Kidman adopted two children during their marriage — Connor and 15-year-old daughter Isabella.
Cruise now has another daughter, two-year-old Suri, with his third wife, Katie Holmes. Kidman is expecting a baby with her country-star husband Keith Urban in July.
