the original I’m a legend was based on a 1954 novel by Richard Matheson. The film is set in a post-apocalyptic New York City, where an epidemic has turned the human population into violent living zombies that can only emerge at night. Smith plays Dr. Robert Neville, a virologist whose immunity to disease leads him to attempt to find a cure. While the town is deserted except for Dr. Neville and his dog, a German Shepherd named Sam who provides his only company, Smith spends much of the film alone on screen.

I’m a legend was a box office success, grossing $256.4 million domestically and $585.4 million worldwide. Over the past two years, the film has been revisited as the basis for conspiracy theories about the COVID-10 pandemic, prompting screenwriter Goldsman to respond on Twitter, “Oh. My. God. It’s a movie. J I made that up. It’s. Not true.”

As an actor, Smith first rose to stardom through his 1990s television series The prince of Bel-Air. Since then, he has acted in many successful films of various genres, such as Independence Day, men in black and I robot, and has also been active as a producer, comedian and musician. Smith is up for an Oscar this year in Best Actor and Best Picture with King Richard.
