How to watch these on Netflix
Each of the movies I have listed above are available on Netflix.
However, there is a catch. They are all available in different regions, meaning that certain Will Smith movies will be unavailable to you, but available to other regions and vice versa.
I don’t know about you, but that certainly doesn’t sit well with me.
So I’m going to help you guys out.
To unlock ALL of these movies on your Netflix account, you will need to use a VPN.
A VPN will allow you to trick Netflix into thinking you are living in another region. By doing so will give you access to that region’s Netflix library.
VPNs do this by allowing you to connect to the web through servers located elsewhere. For example, you can be sat at home and be connected to the internet via a server in the United States.
Doing so would then give you access to the United States’s Netflix library. Great huh?
So where can you get a VPN?
Well, there is one VPN that will fulfil all of your needs. That is ExpressVPN.
ExpressVPN is the fastest VPN in the world, their connection speeds are unrivalled and you will have no trouble watching Will Smith’s movies in full 4K UHD.
Along with their superior connection speeds, they also have a 30-day money back guarantee giving you loads of time to test it.
So, now you know how to watch all of these movies, why don’t you start binging?
Will Smith has starred in some brilliant movies, many of which are available on Netflix. However, to access all of his films, you will need to unlock them by using a VPN.
By using a VPN, such as my top recommendation ExpressVPN, you will be able to fool Netflix into believing you are in another region.
This will give you access to the Netflix library of whatever region you have connected to, giving you full access to all of the Will Smith movies in the list above.
So you could binge-watch all 21 of his top movies over a couple of weekends, or spread them out over a few months.
Which is your favourite Will Smith movie, is it listed here? I would love to know so leave me a comment below.
