Will Smith’s Comeback and the Butts-in-Seats Star Ranking

Matt is joined by Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw to discuss Will Smith’s return to box office stardom after the success of Bad Boys: Ride or Die and if this marks the official return for Will Smith as one of Hollywood’s most dependable theatrical movie stars. They then discuss which movie stars can reliably open an original movie in theaters, and whether directors are more bankable than actors (03:01). Matt finishes the show with a prediction about the NBA Finals ratings (25:18).
