Many eyebrows were raised when it was announced that Will Smith will be a part of Suicide Squad which did some decent business at the box office. It is now revealed that Smith had an option of choosing either the Suicide Squad or Independence Day2. And here’s why he went ahead with the former movie.
“I had the two screenplays in front of me for the Independence Day 2and for Suicide Squad. I had to choose between the two of those. Even the choice of going to Suicide Squad—nothing about the qualities of the movie—but the choice of trying to go forward versus clinging and clawing backwards. I do want to aggressively go forward and do new things and create and hopefully be able to stumble upon a new heyday.”
Unfortunately, both the movies didn’t go down too well with the critics, however, one positive was that Suicide Squad managed to rake in $325 million. It also had more hype surrounding it than the Independence Day2.
