Always one for making his entire family dress up in thematically appropriate costumes for his premieres, Big Will finally drives Big Willie Weekend into the ground in 1999 with Wild Wild West. Look at how sad baby Jaden looks. Even he knows how unwatchable this movie is.
Remember those perfect mid-90’s years when the 4th of July was renamed Big Willie Weekend? Let’s try and forget how Wild Wild West really destroyed our trust in that institution, and celebrate that most American of movie stars, Will Smith. Here’s the man at the 1996 Blockbuster Awards.
Lest you think Big Will himself is all jokey, here he is proving that he can and will someday be a serious actor. While promoting Michael Bay’s Bad Boys. At Cannes. With a huge chain around his neck. Woo!
Over the next two weeks, when we look back at the Cannes Film Festivals of the 90s, you will learn a lot about the insane movies that played there. Today we’d like to introduce you to up and comer Will Smith, promoting Bad Boys (!) in 1995.
