People are so closed minded all because the first impression weren’t great and it became a meme, I believe this trailer does a lot better and I’m glad will Smith is taking his own original portrayal of the character instead of trying to simply copy The amazing Robbin Williams— MikeyGoCrzy (@BlueblurT) March 12, 2019
