Will Smith’s New Movie Will Be Released in Time for Oscar Consideration

This could be interesting:  Will Smith’s new movie “Emancipation” will hit theaters on December 2nd, making it eligible for next year’s Oscars.

Even if Will gets nominated, he can’t be there.  He’s serving a 10-year ban for slapping Chris Rock at this year’s ceremony.

“Emancipation” is based on the true story of a runaway slave who escapes to the North and joins the Union Army.
