There was much speculation when the teaser posts were revealed. Many fans believed that Smith would not be able to live up to the iconic and original Genie who was voiced by Robin Williams. Director Guy Ritchie said, “The great thing about the role of the Genie is that it’s essentially a hyperbole for who that individual actor is, so it’s a wonderful platform and tapestry for an actor to fill his boots on”. Unfortunately, fans are still not feeling it- no amount of reasoning can change their minds!
Over on Twitter, there’s actually a new hashtag making the rounds #NotMyGenie.

The movie hits theaters on May 24! Here’s to hoping that Will Smith’s incredible acting skills will camouflage the blue *fingers crossed*. And incase the movie turns out to be unbearable, just remember where the exit doors are!
