I would never, ever be one to question Will Smith’s box office acumen — see this interesting profile we did, plus last weekend’s box office receipts — but did this trailer strike anyone as a bit off?

I mean, just racial politics-wise? The black, apparently homeless superhero who just can’t pull it together? I’m not saying I didn’t laugh — the reaction shot after the train crash is pretty choice, and Jason Bateman gives good timing on “Greenpeace does” — but I kinda wasn’t totally sure I should’ve.
