Earlier today I shared a new poster for M Night Shyamalan’s After Earth. I also said there was a new trailer due out and here it is.
After Earth is set 1000 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.
To be honest I am still not sure what to make of this. I do like a bit of sci-fi and this does look good, but Shyamalan has burnt us before.
After Earth is due out on June 7, 2013
