Will Smith never used to worry if his movies “sucked” – so long as they had good trailers.

The 50-year-old actor admitted it used to be much easier to make a popcorn blockbuster because it took a while for people’s verdicts on the films to come in, but the instantaneousness of social media has forced change because now a strong promotional clip is no longer enough to drive audiences into cinemas.

He admitted: “We used to say ‘We’re not in the movie business, we’re in the trailer business. Once you have a good trailer you’re done. Now what’s happened with technology, on Friday night at 7:30, people are tweeting, ‘Hey Will’s movie sucks, go see Vin Diesel’s.’

“We no longer [have] the three-day window. If you had a great trailer, it was Monday at noon before everybody knew that ‘Wild Wild West’ sucked. You had already made your money. ‘Oops, sorry, catch you on the next one.’ ”

After successful ventures into acting, rapping and producing, Will has now become an online sensation thanks to his popular YouTube channel and he’s pleased with his new direction.

He said: “I feel like I’m getting a fourth bite of the entertainment apple.”
