It’s hard to believe this is same movie where Will Smiths insufferable ego made everyone miserable, and whose director admits that they started filming while the script was still being written, in fact they “didn’t have a finished second or third act”, which might have been “a really stupid idea.” To which special effects legend Rick Baker adds:
“We had a writer actually on the soundstage writing the words moments before the guys had to say them. I don’t think that’s any way to make a movie.”
Well there’s certainly no evidence of hastily written dialogue in the trailer. For example, when Will Smith is told that his partner has apparently been dead for 40 years, he yells “What?” And sure, every other character is an interchangeable straight man for Smith to overreact too, but movies are more fun when no one else talks except for one guy who goes around yelling.
