[video] Surveillance video shows hit-and-run before fatal Will Smith shooting

This tragedy gets more tragic as more information about the incident comes out.

“Prior to the actions that lead to Mr. Smith’s death, my client was involved in a hit and run,” John Fuller said. “Someone hit him and failed to pull over. My client trailed behind this person in an effort to get their license plate number. My client also called 911.”

Fuller says Hayes is not guilty and that he “felt threatened.” He also claims the presence of a second gun will help exonerate his client.

NY TIMES: Jaden and Willow Smith on Prana Energy, Time and Why School is Overrated

Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 11.36.09 AM

People were quick to criticize these two child stars because when you’re the offspring of superstars Will and Jada Smith you’re supposed to shut up and be happy with your millions. Their viewpoints are a breath of fresh air and not the programmed garbage we hear from squeaky clean Disney stars who behind scenes are depressed and taking boatloads of drugs due to the faux images that they can no longer maintain once they begin to reach adulthood. Full interview below:

So is the hardest education the unlearning of things?

WILLOW: Yes, basically, but the crazy thing is it doesn’t have to be like that.

JADEN: Here’s the deal: School is not authentic because it ends. It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.

WILLOW: Forever, ‘til the day that we’re in our bed.

One of the gifts of being young is that particular blend of self-confidence and self-consciousness.

Jada can’t keep quiet about sex life with Will

Most interesting is the last line in the story about what one investigative reporter feels what is the true meaning of Scientology. Anyway Jada spills more secrets about her and Will getting it on.

Jada Pinkett Smith is talking about her hyperactive sex life again. “In a limo, on the way to the Academy Awards this year, Will started looking at me in this way that drives me wild. We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let’s just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no makeup on,” she tells Shape magazine.

Jada has never been shy about discussing her feverish life between the sheets with Will Smith, her husband of 11 years. They’re very heterosexual and horny for each other! Let’s take a look back at her public overshares.

Her number one beauty secret: “lots of sex!”

Her tricks for keeping the spark alive: sex outdoors, in cars, at friends’ houses, in costume

Her attitude towards watching Will’s sex scenes with other women: totally cool, because that’s how the public will view the two of them

Will has also been outspoken about the frequency and fervor of their lovemaking. He told David Letterman that his time off of work last year would coincide with “LOTS of sex” and has said that “really, really good sex” (which he happens to be “really good at”) is the secret to a lasting marriage.

All sex talk, no action? Will has long been the target of gay rumors, which Jada has denied in the past.

“I don’t have an open marriage and no, we’re not gay – and you don’t trust that? Well then there’s nothing that I really have to say to anybody about anything, because at the end of the day, I’m living my life, and I’m happy,” she told National Public Radio.

A pattern of speculation and denial also surrounds the couple’s religious life. Will and Jada have never admitted they are members of the Church, but they are close friends of Scientology supercouple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and last year they opened a school that embraces the teaching principles of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Will told Men’s Vogue that he studied Scientology with Tom Cruise and that Scientology is like the Bible.

Investigative journalist Ian Halperin claims that Scientology is just a fancy term for reparation therapy and the Church has been “curing” closeted actors of their homosexuality and marrying gay men to lesbian women for years. Just saying.

BEIJING — Jackie Chan will play the wise kung-fu master in a Hollywood-Chinese remake of the 1984 hit “The Karate Kid” that kicked off filming in the Chinese capital at the weekend, a movie company publicist said Monday.

Chan’s young disciple in “Kung Fu Kid” will be played by Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, China Film Group spokesman Weng Li told The Associated Press in a phone interview.

In “The Karate Kid,” Pat Morita plays the iconic building handyman Mr. Miyagi who trains one of his young tenants, portrayed by Ralph Macchio, into an accomplished fighter.

The co-production between the state-run China Film Group and Columbia Pictures started shooting Saturday in Beijing, Weng said.

“Kung Fu Kid” is being directed by Harald Zwart, who also directed “One Night at McCool’s” and “The Pink Panther 2,” Solon So, the chief executive of Chan’s company, JC Group, told the AP.

Chan and Smith, along with Smith’s parents and sister Willow, attended a traditional Chinese ceremony to mark the start of the shoot Saturday. Photos on China Film Group’s movie news Web site show the Smith family and Chan holding incense sticks.

Will Smith _ one of the film’s producers _ Chan, Zwart and others symbolically removed a piece of red cloth covering a movie camera, after which Smith gave Chan a hug, according to video posted on Chinese news Web site Sina.com. His hair done in a huge Afro and wearing a bright red track jacket and blue pants, Jaden Smith stood and waved when he was introduced. His father ruffled his hair when he sat down.

Chan said on his Web site he also attended the younger Smith’s 11th birthday party last Wednesday, where he and Will Smith posed for pictures with young performers wearing red and yellow costumes with dragon patterns.

Ken Stovitz, one of Will Smith’s partners in the production company Overbrook Entertainment, said at the ceremony Saturday that “Kung Fu Kid” will be set in modern-day Beijing. China Film Group chairman Han Sanping said shooting will last three months.

Chan juggles careers in Hollywood and Chinese-language film. The veteran 55-year-old Hong Kong action star will be seen in the upcoming the Hollywood action comedy “The Spy Next Door,” about an undercover Chinese spy whose cover is blown, and the Chinese production, “Big Soldier,” about the friendship between two soldiers set in China’s ancient Qin dynasty.

Jaden Smith costarred with his father in the 2006 movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” and appeared in the 2008 Keanu Reeves sci-fi movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Sci Fi Channel is teaming with Will Smith for a new crime procedural.

The network has ordered “Unfinished Business,” a drama about an ex-cop who starts seeing flashes of memories from the recently deceased. The visions compel him to help wronged souls resolve their unfinished business.

The network plans to air “Business” as a two-hour movie that will also serve as a potential series pilot.

“Business” is being produced through Overbrook Entertainment, with Smith, James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz executive producing. Emmy-nominated scribe Sally Robinson (“Iron Jawed Angels”) will write the pilot, and Emmy winner Mikael Salomon (“Band of Brothers”) is attached to direct. Both also will serve as executive producers. The project will be produced by Universal Cable Prods., with Overbrook head Heather Courtney overseeing production.

“Sci Fi is excited to begin development on ‘Unfinished Business’ with Overbrook Entertainment and Will Smith,” said Mark Stern, executive vp original programming at Sci Fi. “It is a compelling and thrilling drama that is perfect for our audience.”

The drama represents a meld between Sci Fi’s brand and the most sturdy scripted genre format. The network’s most recent stab at the crime procedural was 2007’s “The Dresden Files.”

“Business” joins “The Phantom” and “Riverworld” as backdoor pilots coming to the network, which changes its name to Syfy on July 7.

Will Smith prepping for “Men In Black 3″

Will Smith x Men in Black. After the rousing success of Fast & Furious this past weekend (over $70 million at the box office this weekend) you can expect a flury of sequels to be greenlit by Hollywood studios in the coming months. And soon enough, there are talks at Sony Pictures that a Men In Black 3 is already in development with the original producers.

These talks were confirmed when Sony Pictures’ President confirmed they were reigniting the franchise and targeting a 2011 release date. That’s all good for Will but let’s just hope this doesn’t mean a Hancock sequel as well…or even worse…a Seven Pounds sequel.

Will Smith tops Forbes.com’s bankable stars list

NEW YORK -Will Smith was voted the most bankable star in Hollywood in a survey of industry professionals by Forbes.com.will-smith
The financial magazine’s Web site gives the actor a score of 10 out of 10 for his bankability in its first “star currency” list, compiled by surveying more than 150 industry professionals.
Following Smith on the list: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio, who all tied for second with a score of 9.89. Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson rounded out the top 10.
Smith’s superior box-office clout has been long established. He’s known for “owning” the July Fourth weekend box office with films such as “Independence Day” and “Men in Black,” and has had few flops.
The 40-year-old actor recently topped the annual poll by Quigley Publishing Co., which has surveyed movie exhibitors since 1932 on which stars generate the most box-office revenue.
The Forbes survey, which acknowledged that it was “subjective,” also took into account a star’s ability to attract financing for a project. The list was released Tuesday.
Smith’s latest film, “Seven Pounds,” received terrible reviews, but still earned $70 million at the domestic box office. His summer superhero blockbuster “Hancock” grossed $228 million.

[video] Will Smith Vows to Play Obama as US President

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Smith has staked his claim to play the role, even before Barack Obama has been inaugurated as president.

Speaking at the premiere of his new film Seven Pounds at the Empire, Leicester Square, in London, Smith laughed about reports that the US President-elect had indicated that he would like the actor to play him if his life story were ever to be made into a movie.

“If I am ordered by my commander in chief to star in a film about him, I will do my duty as an American,” he said, beaming.

Smith, best known for the Men in Black films and Independence Day, says however that he had no desire to move into the White House for real.

“If we were in the White House I don’t know if that would exactly be a good thing. The Obamas are much more prepared to be in the White House than the Smiths. Continue reading

Will Smith is King of the Box Office in 2008

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.”
