The official website has been launched for M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi film After Earth, and it contains a bunch of new character photos of Jaden Smith and Will Smith. There's also a ton of information about the film including character bios for Kirai Raige and Cypher Raige, and the planet they come from, Nova Prime. Some of the info includes a breakdown of weapons, training, bad guys and more. There's also an interesting section called "Project Next Generation," which give us some info on why the humans left Earth, and why it's now considered the most dangerous place in the Universe.
Shyamalan created a pretty extensive and detailed backstory for this movie. It looks like it could be good, but all of Shyamalan's films look like they could be good at first. Then when you go see them they end up being not so good. The last decent movie Shyamalan made was Signs, and his name is so tainted right now that the studio wont even show it in the trailer for After Earth fear it would make people not want to see the movie. Will Smith's name is selling this movie.
Check out some screenshots from the site below and then head on over to it to look around for yourself.
