It seems like a lot of people are willing to give director M. Night Shyamalan another chance with this latest film After Earth, a sci-fi movie starring Will and Jaden Smith. It looks visually cool, but what I'm worried about is the story, the twist that he's going to add to the story, and the bad direction of his actors.
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 below again for a little reminder.
