The first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi adventure film After Earth has hit the internet giving us our first look at the movie which stars Will Smith and Jaden Smith. This is an international trailer, and it features a monotone Will Smith talking to his son about the planet they crash landed on, and about choosing not to feel fear. Young Jaden is forced to survive on the future planet earth on his own. It looks like it could be an interesting movie, but I really hate that flat monotone feel of all of Shyamalyan's characters. The way Smith is talking to his kid seems unnatural.
I'm not the biggest fan of Shyamalan's recent work, and I can't help but look for everything I don't like about what I see. But there are things I did like such as the setting, the special effects and the visuals. What has yet to be seen is if the story, script and acting will be good.
One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.
The movie is set to be released on June 7th, 2013. Check out the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think!
