The trailer for “Aladdin” was released late Sunday night, and Will Smith looked absurd in it.

The legendary actor will play the genie in the upcoming film, which is set to be released May 24. Now, generally I wouldn’t care about Disney films.

They’re not really in my preferred genres. However, I just had to bring this circus to your attention. Smith looks like a clown. Give it a watch below. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

I mean this in the most polite way possible, but what the hell is Will Smith doing? Serious, what is this garbage?

Will Smith is known for making hits. He’s not known for playing a blue genie in a Disney flick. That seems like a major downgrade for a man with such a storied career.

He went from the “Men in Black” trilogy to this garbage. That just doesn’t seem like a wise career move.

Now, I’m not his agent, and I’m sure he was cut a fat check for the role. Still, he should have thought twice before signing up for “Aladdin.” I have a feeling this movie is going to be a disaster, and the preview only makes me believe that more.
