Is Apple stopping Will Smith’s movie?

It actually sounds like an award-winning role for Will Smith: In the Apple production “Emancipation,” he plays a slave on the arduous path to another life. But the publication is still a long way off. Because the movie was shot before Smith broke out at the Oscars.

It’s been nearly six months since Will Smith lost his temper at the Oscars and comedian Chris Rock slapped a crowd of millions. For the 53-year-old Smith, the outbreak of violence had huge consequences – instead of basking in the glory of winning the Oscar at the height of his career, he has since turned into a box office poison.

The Apple production “Emancipation” shows just how big the consequences are for movie studios. The Smith-starring Civil War drama, which has reportedly cost about $120 million and has already been completed, should really be the next Oscar nominee. But instead, according to the “New York Times,” Apple prefers not to say anything about the film at the moment.

Deadline is approaching

Originally there was talk of a release in the fall of this year. This alone would be required to qualify for the next Academy Awards on March 12, 2023. The submission deadline is November 15, 2022. Productions published after that date will not be considered. If Apple also wants to promote the film well before its release, it should do so fairly quickly.

The fact that the company instead refused all information about the film and its publication, according to the report, speaks volumes. A publication before the end of this year seems in any case a utopia. And if Apple wanted to see its lead actor Will Smith at the Oscars, it would have to wait a long time – the actor was banned from the event for ten years for his slap in the face.
