Will Smith not as fresh after his movie 'After Earth' had a weak $27 million debut – Pamela Brown has a closer look

Instead of being a spectacular hit, "After Earth" is an unexpected box office bomb. In fact, it was Will Smith's worst summer debut in 20 years.

Some people say it is because of Smith's ego— he reportedly rejected a role in "Django Unchained" because it was not the lead. Jamie Foxx eventually landed the job.

Others blame "After Earth" director M. Night Shyamalan, saying he's box office poison.

Can the former "Fresh Prince" regain his standing as Hollywood royalty?

– Pamela Brown is here with a closer look.
