A viral type teaser trailer has been released giving us our first look at After Earth, M. Night Shyamalan's new sci-fi film. The movie stars Will Smith and Jaden Smith, and the teaser reveals the fictional history of the universe that the movie is based around. I've also included some footage from the Comic-Con panel, which we didn't attend. I don't get excited or my hopes up for Shyamalan's films anymore. It's been a long time since he's given me something impressive to watch.
Here's the Synopsis:
In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by 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 (played by 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.
Check out the teaser below and let us know if you think Shyamalan has a solidly good movie on his hands.
