Slap or no slap, AppleTV Plus is persevering with Will Smith.
The studio/streamer will release “Emancipation” On December 2nd in theaters, and then a week later on Apple TV Plus.
I don’t know how they’ll handle publicity for the Antoine Fuqua directed drama. Will junket press just agree not to mention Smith’s violent outburst on the OScars this year? Are we just going to forget about it and move on?
And how will the Academy handle it if Smith is good enough for an Oscar nomination? He’s been banned from the show for 10 years.
This is a mess. And it’s only going to get worse. Also, the movie is in black and white. Here’s the trailer.
