Action Cred: He used to be called King of the 4th, thanks to his continuous box office success in the ‘90s. Independence Day, Men in Black and Wild Willd West - which were all released on a July 4 weekend - all opened at number one. In the Noughties, the trend continued with Men in Black II and Hancock. Although they were not released around July 4, they still came out in that month, meaning that every single Will Smith vehicle released in July has shot to number one.
