‘After Earth’ Crashes at Box Office

The danger of flopping at the box office is real. The fear of being made fun of for making a movie like After Earth is a choice. And, after the film opened with only $27 million, Will Smith probably should've thought about that choice a bit more. Panned by critics, After Earth could only land in third place at the box office, behind Fast and Furious 6  and Now You See Me. This outcome isn't exactly a surprise: Will Smith hasn't had box-office magic in years and sci-fi films haven't done well this year. M. Night Shyamalan directed the movie, too. So no twist endings here.
