Will Smith And Jaden Smith Dominate Razzie Awards For 'After Ear
Will Smith and his son Jaden have some unwelcome additions to their awards collection after picking up a trio of trophies at the Golden Raspberry prizegiving on Saturday.

Ahead of Hollywood's biggest night, the Oscars, on Sunday, the worst films and performances were 'honored' at the annual tongue-in-cheek bash in Los Angeles.

It was the Smiths who took the brunt of the industry's wrath thanks to their turn in sci-fi blockbuster After Earth, which earned Jaden the Worst Actor trophy and his father the prize for Worst Supporting Actor. The pair also took home the award for Worst Screen Com...

The Ten Worst Movies Of 2013

December 24th, 2013 12:00pm EST
Getaway
What makes a bad film? Factors such as poor ticket sales, bad acting, lousy scripts, and negative reviews. And if you've never even heard of the movie, than you know it's really bad.

Some of these films actually had decent box office results, but that doesn't mean they were good films. It just means a bunch of people got suckered into watching movies they thought would be entertaining but ended up being lousy.

"Getaway" (above) starred Selena Gomez, one of today's hottest young female singers and actresses. But her star power couldn't save the film.

The movie centered on Brent (Ethan Haw...

Following 'After Earth' Flop, Will Smith Is Done Making Blockbusters

June 6th, 2013 11:25am EDT
Will Smith
Will Smith has lost his love for making blockbusters after his father-son feature After Earth flopped in theaters and received devastating reviews.

Smith said in an interview with Digital Spy that the nature of After Earth required it to be a blockbuster, but now Smith is ready to work on more "artistic" films. He says, "It's been an absolute necessity that the movie be a blockbuster, but I think I'm going to start moving out of that and finding more danger in my artistic choices."

Smith has appeared in blockbusters almost exclusively for over a decade, starring in films such as I, Robot,...

June 4th, 2013 8:41pm EDT
Zoe Kravitz
Actor Jaden Smith made sure his After Earth co-star Zoe Kravitz was fully looked after on set by presenting her with a brand new, roomy trailer after she made a joke about how tiny her mobile home was compared to his luxury bus.

The Karate Kid star and his father, Will Smith, each had a state-of-the-art double decker vehicle delivered to the shoot so they could relax in total comfort in between scenes, but Kravitz had to make do with a modest space - until the now-14 year old decided to do something about it.

The actress explains, "They have matching double decker buses next to each other...

June 3rd, 2013 2:12pm EDT
Fast & Furious 6
After a record box office take over Memorial Day weekend, Fast & Furious 6 has held off competition from Will Smith's sci-fi futurist tale After Earth to retain the top spot at the weekend box office.

The film pulled in another $34.5 million after opening with $120 million in ticket sales over the holiday weekend, while "After Earth" opened to a disappointing $27 million, slightly behind illusionist heist drama Now You See Me ($28.1 million), which also debuted this week.

"After Earth, which stars Smith and son Jaden and cost $130 million to produce (before marketing costs), was expected ...

The 'After Earth' Inside Scoop

June 1st, 2013 7:38am EDT
After Earth
In the new movie "After Earth", a crash landing leaves father and son team Will and Jaden Smith stuck on the planet a thousand years after humans were forced to flee Earth. I got the opportunity to talk to co-screenwriter of "After Earth", Gary Whitta, who also wrote the post-apocalyptic smash hit "The Book of Eli". Whitta gave me the lowdown on his new project, "The film is set in the future after humankind has been forced to basically evacuate planet Earth. The premise is that at some point in the future, we finally reach the point as a human species where we've done so much damage to the...

May 31st, 2013 10:34am EDT
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have not ended their relationship, despite numerous rumors to the contrary earlier this week. The singer took to her Twitter page on Thursday and posted an image of herself wearing what appears to be a wedding gown. She left no comment and let the image speak for itself. The message? Most likely, don't believe everything in the press. Miley has been very busy of late working on her new album and a new music video; and the couple has been staying out of the headlines lately. (story)

Despite a 13% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes.com's 'Tomatometer,' the new Wi...

Review: 'After Earth' A Fun Ride Into Hostile Territory

May 31st, 2013 8:30am EDT
After Earth
Every son, whether consciously or unconsciously, wants to impress his dad and wants to gain his father's respect. In the year 222 AE (after earth), after a series of cataclysmic events forced humanity to leave earth and settle on Nova Prime, that concept still holds true.

Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) wants desperately to be a Ranger like his dad, General Cypher Raige, (Will Smith). Cypher is not only a Ranger but he's a super Ranger having saved the humans of Nova Prime from the planet's fiercest alien threats - the Skrel and their nasty monster creations known as the Ursa.

But that doesn't ...

Jaden Smith freaked out by bug

May 20th, 2013 8:40pm EDT
Jaden Smith
Teenage star Jaden Smith freaked out during a junket interview for his new film After Earth at the weekend (17May13) when a giant bug rested on the arm of his chair.

The actor was promoting the film under a tent in the New Mexico desert with his dad and co-star Will Smith when he suddenly leaped up with a start and yelled, "Dad!".

A cool, calm and collected Will swatted the bug away and then repeated, "Jaden, it's not a stinger," to assure his concerned son, who couldn't run far because his microphone was attached.

The youngster then tried to kill the bug with his skateboard as cameras r...

Matt Damon Suits Up To Save The Earth In 'Elysium' - Watch The Trailer

April 10th, 2013 11:15am EDT
Elysium
From the director of 'District 9' comes 'Elysium,' another futuristic tale of the feud between two separate societies. The story follows Max Coburn (played by Matt Damon), who for reasons unknown needs to go to 'Elysium,' a futuristic paradise in space.

The movie shares some things in common with "District 9" - high society completely distanced from the masses, with the plebeians living in squalor on Earth (which has completely fallen into disrepair) and the aristocracy living on Elysium - an enormous utopian society created on a ring in space.

Apparently, director Neill Blomkamp is very ...

After Earth
Much to my elation, it seems that the sci-fi machine in Hollywood has once again turned on, as some seriously awesome movie trailers were released over this past week.
