Hatin’ on ‘After Earth’ and Jaden Smith

after earth new trailer gets emotionally unpredictable 560x326After Earth, the Will Smith/Jaden Smith/M. Night Shyamalan Sci-Fi blockbuster is apparently more bust than block. On opening weekend it earned only $27.1 million, behind a magician movie, Now You See Me. With a $130 million budget to recoup, they’ve got a long row to hoe before they can come close to breaking even. The problem, apparently, is Jaden Smith.

Nepotism is a bitter pill to swallow at your shitty 9 to 5 job, and even more so when you see a teenager being handed multi-million dollar acting roles and realizing that your dead parakeet has more range and talent.

Sorry, Jaden, looks like nobody is on your side.

Ah well, those huge piles of money your Daddy earns probably help cushion to blow to your ego, right?
