The reason Will Smith's 'Gemini Man' tanked at the box office

To see the movie with an optimal viewing experience, the theater would need to be able to accommodate films that show 4k resolution at 120 frames-per-second.

ATLANTA — Remember last year, when Will Smith was in Savannah swatting those mosquitoes while filming the movie, “Gemini Man?” 

Well, now his film is swatting off bad reviews from critics!

The film, which stars Smith facing off with a younger version of himself, cost over $140 million to make according to Business Insider, but it only brought in $60 million worldwide.

But here's the thing apparently, no theater in America can actually show the movie in the way Director Ang Lee shot it. 

According to Cinema Blend, in order to see the movie with an optimal viewing experience, the theater would need to be able to accommodate films that show 4k resolution at 120 frames-per-second, and in 3-D.

Seeing the movie in 3-D is, of course, is no big deal, but the other two elements are rare in most theaters.

“Gemini Man” was filmed in cities of great historical and architectural significance which, primarily portray themselves: Savannah, Glennville and other communities in Georgia; the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia; and Budapest, Hungary, one of Europe’s most celebrated capitals.

The "Gemini Man" production company took over an entire abandoned elementary school in the Savannah suburb of Thunderbolt, with its numerous buildings turned into offices for various departments, workshops for costumes, props, set decoration and more. 

The former gymnasium was converted into a combination soundstage for camera tests as well as a training and rehearsal facility for J.J. Perry’s stunt department, and an auditorium was transformed by technical supervisor Ben Gervais and stereographer Demetri Portelli into a state-of-the-art technology base.

Smith’s next production that was filmed in Georgia is “Bad Boys For Life”
