In anticipation of Special Guest Stars Will and Jaden Smith, who will appear in our exclusive Earth Day issue on April 22, we're taking a look at Will Smith's ongoing relationship with.... aliens.
Punches an alien in the face. Says “Welcome to Earth.” A star is born.
Men in Black
Hangs out with aliens, including Frank the Pug—when not killing them. He will do this two more times, in the sequels.
Enemy of the State
No aliens. Although the movie is about conspiracies, so maybe Gene Hackman is an alien?
The Wild Wild West
Does a mechanical spider count as an alien?
Aliens here? No! They robots.
I Am Legend
The mutants trying to kill Will are more dangerous than aliens. They are us.
No aliens, unless you count the jellyfish.
Aliens! Will and son Jaden return to an Earth that’s been destroyed, probably because of the baddies. Someone call Tommy Lee.
