No matter what Will Smith does on screen, it's going to be a big deal at the box office, for all parties involved. With this ability to get fans' attention with his one of a kind persona, there are extra expectations both critically and financially from both studios and audiences.
While this ability can lead to monster hits for movies like Independence Day or I Am Legend, it can also bite him in the rear end for flops like The Legend of Bagger Vance and Seven Pounds.
Likewise, the stacked roster for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 created certain expectations, which were only multiplied when the backup quarterback announced that they were the "Dream Team."
Unfortunately for Eagles fans, the Dream Team quickly evolved into a nightmare, as a mix of inconsistency and injuries derailed the team's efforts.
The Eagles would miss the playoffs at 8-8, despite the best efforts of quarterback Michael Vick to right the ship near the end (they were still playoff eligible more than three-fourths of the way through the year).
