Though nary a single sprocket of AFTER EARTH has passed through a multi-plex movie projector yet, the L.A. Times' usually accurate Movie Projector column has bad news for the film's prospects on opening weekend. They expect the second round of FAST & FURIOUS 6 will easily outdistance The Smith Family Vanity Project, with EARTH winding up somewhere between $33 million and the studio's self-serving higher prediction of $38m -- Paltry for a Will Smith title, and in the same ballpark as Smith's 1999 Worst Picture "winner" WILD WILD WEST

Here's the LINK for Times' article to see what they're predicting for other titles this weekend...

STARTLING UPDATE from Head RAZZBerry: Friday grosses have shown up at B.O. MoJo, and they've got a nasty surprise for The Smith Family: AFTER EARTH didn't come in an embarrassing second...it came in a humiliating THIRD, behind both the week old FAST & FURIOUS 6 and the weak/new NOW YOU SEE ME. 

Here's the B.O. MoJo LINK to see the daily chart for Friday, May 31. It's also interesting to note that the per-screen-average for EARTH's opening night was almost topped by the SECOND FRIDAY per-screen numbers for FF6(!)...

Looks lie we may have An Early Front-Runner for Worst Picture

Official B.O. MoJo Weekend Numbers are in, and there's probably a black wreath hanging on the front door of The Smashed Prince of Bel-Air's mansion: AFTER EARTH didn't just not come in first...it didn't even come in second. It came in THIRD for its opening weekend (and we fully expect Sony/Columbia will wind up whittling away at their $27 million estimate come Monday morning). 

Here's a B.O. MoJo LINK to check out the day-to-day grosses for the film, making it clear that this particular mission was D.O.A. before it even launched. 

With its Triple Threat RAZZIE Credential of Rotten Reviews, Bad Box Office and Even Worse Word-of-Mouth, we can now definitively say: 

This One's a CONTENDUH!
