Will Smith returns to the big screen in Emancipation as Peter.
The movie is based on true events.
The movie centers around a former slave who is hoping to reunite with his family.
The movie is being overshadowed by the Oscar night slap heard around the world, when Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face over remarks he made about his wife.
Smith recently sat down with Trevor Noah on the Daily Show in hopes of clearing the air.
In the interview, Smith opens up about the ordeal and how his nephew called him out for his actions.
Since the Academy banned him from attending the Oscars for the next ten years, Smith said he’s worried his actions will hurt the chances of nominations for other who worked on the film.
And speaking of Trevor Noah and the Daily Show, he hosted his last show on Thursday.
Noah announced in September that after seven years he’s decided to move on.
The network shared the first phase of plans to fill his time spot
