Will Smith’s ‘Switch’ Renews British Chart Run

Published: Sunday 2nd Jun 2013 by David

If you’re one of the few who hasn’t seen Will Smith‘s latest movie ‘After Earth‘, let us be the ones to tell you that you’re seriously missing out on a great flick.

Now, in agreeing with that sentiment, the public have not only rewarded the cool spirited philanthropist with $29,700,000 at the Box Office since the movie dropped, but with renewed interest in his 2005 smash hit, ‘Switch’.

Good news below…

After peaking at #4 in the UK back in ’05, the last week has seen the number rise 17 spots in the nation’s Urban Chart, outselling Rihanna’s ‘Stay‘ and Labrinth‘s ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’ in the last seven days.

In doing so, it now occupies the #15 spot.

Spearheaded by the gargantuan campaign launched in the ‘Earth’s aid,  ‘Switch’s UK chart win comes after it was certified Gold in the USA for sales of over 500,000 units and after it peaked at #1 in Australia and Canada while soaring to #4 on Billboard’s Pop Songs tally.

Will’s return to the British charts comes three years after his daughter Willow saw her Tim Carter produced jam ‘Whip My Hair‘ certified Platinum in the US, when it reached sales of 1 million units, and 20 years after his wife Jada Pinkett starred in the cult classic, ‘Menace II Society’- starring as Ronnie alongside ‘The Displaced Person’ star Samuel L. Jackson.

Congratulations Mr. Smith!

      No TGJ needs to do some accurate reporting for once. This was such a ridiculous article. LOL. Had they omitted the part about the box office numbers then it would have been an okay piece, but they just over-did it here. It was really hard to follow their train of thought too. We all wish Will the best of luck but this was not an admirable feat at the box office. As far as Switch goes, the article didn’t really explain why it was relevant enough to resurface on the charts. Very confusing, but congrats, I guess.

      If you guys recall Think Like A Man did 30 Mil in its opening weekend. That’s good for a film like that, but THIS was supposed to be like Independence Day or MIB.

    What are you talking about? The film has been a complete flop during it’s opening weekend;and it has been absolutely slammed by the critics.
    Do you ever bother to read the newspapers?

    debuting with 29 millions in first weekend is not a good thing. it’s the second worst debut by a high budget movie behind battlefield!basically is a flop …. surely will is not rejoicing even because critics have panned the film.

  10. MK June 2, 2013

    The film bombed in the USA

  11. Mother June 2, 2013

    Really Sam? You bashed Battleship but you praise this s***? It’s awful! It’s getting abysmal reviews! Critics are saying it’s the movie version of Rebecca’s “Friday”

    This s*** is sinking harder than Battleship, and that’s saying something
