Will Smith Upset New Movie ‘Emancipation’ Bombing At Box Office Following Chris Rock Slap

Will Smith punches Chris Rock

At a glance

  • When Mayan Lopez and Selenis Leyva announced the 2023 Golden Globe nominees on December 12, one name was conspicuously absent. Nearly nine months after he slapped host Chris Rock on the Academy Awards stage, Will Smith and his prestige slave drama, Emancipation, were completely snubbed — and sources say Hollywood’s cold shoulder didn’t go unnoticed by the disgraced actor, RadarOnline.com has learned.
  • Moviegoers aren’t exactly impressed, either. On its opening weekend, them $120 million flick earned a reported average of just $3k per screen. All of which dismayed the 54-year-old former box office powerhouse, who’d clearly been angling for a post-slap comeback.
  • “Will knows it’s a long road to redemption and a lot of folks won’t forgive him,” an insider spilled. “But this really rams it home.”
