Before I continue with this story, allow me to echo what my man E.Dubb called out two weeks ago. Cypher Raige? That's the character Will Smith is playing in M. Night Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH? Cypher f*ckin' Raige? Damn, that has to be the worst handle since Castor Troy. Good grief!
As I try to get over this calamity, I'll have you know a new viral website and teaser trailer for AFTER EARTH have crossed the wire and we have the link and video below to prove it. Not sure how thrilled you are about AFTER EARTH, as Shyamalan has seemingly gotten worse with each directorial effort. Could this be worse than THE LAST AIRBENDER though? Tough to imagine...
Starring Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Zoë Kravitz (below) and Sophie Okonedo:
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.
