‘AFTER EARTH’ starring Will Smith, teases POSTER and TRAILER

AFTER EARTH starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith, Directed by M. Night Shyamalan Father and son actors — Will Smith and Jaden Smith rejoins in a movie together with director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs and Unbreakable) in Columbia Pictures’ new sci-fi movie “After Earth“.

 This year, sci-fi movies looks to be a hot choice as we also have upcoming movies like Star Trek: Into Darkness and Tom Cruise‘s Oblivion. But this new film from the Smith’s and Shyamalan looks to be a serious contender. Will and Jaden Smith has collaborated together in ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’, which showcased Jaden’s  talent as an actor when it comes to drama, and then with ‘Karate Kid’ that shows action and stunts. Will Smith’s career has already shown us that he can do sci-fi (I, Robot) and drama (Pursuit) as well. So the only factor here is director Shyamalan, who never really had a sci-fi project, but was always good when it comes to supernatural, a bit of horror and mystery theme, so this movie might actually be a hit or miss. But looking at pictures and posters, especially the trailer, you can see that it really looks good. Here’s a synopsis of the film –

“A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.”

Opening across the Philippines in June 2013, “After Earth” is distributed by Columbia Pictures  Check out the official poster and trailer below:
