Rather than getting bummed out that his new film “After Earth” didn’t do so well at the box office, Will Smith made light of the flop on “ Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The “Independence Day” hunk weighed in on the third place ranking, joking that he was glad it finished behind “Fast and Furious 6” and “Now You See Me.”

Smith began with a laugh, "Here's how I think about it, Jimmy. Now let's be honest. Three is the new one."

Kimmel shot back, “That’s really good news for me,” to which Will replied, “Yeah! Do you know how many ones it takes to make a three? Oh man, that was tragic.”

"I was sitting at home cause you know you get the information moment by moment, every hour somebody's calling. I was like, 'Uh-oh'…I felt like a fighter. It's been almost two decades since I had a movie that wasn't No. 1…That's over now, buddy! Thanks!"
