Today we celebrate...A RELEASE DATE FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE (DAY 2). And that day is July 3, 2015. However, before you get really excited and break out your Will Smith fighter pilot jumpsuit, know that he will not be joining the cast.

Director Roland Emmerich has said that Will Smith won't joining "because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name. It would be too much." Which is ironic because those words were uttered by ROLAND EMMERICH.

If Will Smith is "too much" for Mr. Godzilla, then perhaps Will Smith should tone things down.

Or maybe Emmerich was just afraid he would have to cast the rest of the Pinkett-Smith clan in the film.
