New After Earth poster with Will and Jaden Smith is better than the first one

03.13.2013

After Earth Banner

I really don't know what to expect from AFTER EARTH. Does anyone? There are better looking upcoming movies set on a futuristic but rundown Earth (ELYSIUM and OBLIVION) and I'm sorry but anything with M. Night Shyamalan's name attached to it is an immediate red flag.

That being said I'm still going to give the film a chance. Sony Pictures has released a new poster that isn't mind blowing but is certainly superior to the extreme close-up poster that was previously released.

After Earth poster

Staring Will Smith and son Jaden Smith, AFTER EARTH is about:

One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. 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.

AFTER EARTH also stars Isabelle Fhurman, Kristofer Hivju, and Gabriel Caste and is out June 7, 2013.

This is my underdog film of the summer. I'm really hoping it surprises (in a good way).

I'm willing to give this a shot, since Shyamalan didn't write this one and I don't have any issues with Will or his son. Why cast someone else in the role of your son, if your son is capable of doing it? At least the chemistry is guaranteed to be there.

Dear Will Smith,

Please stop forcing your son down our throats, he's literally the WORST. Thanks.

Even with a decent trailer and a new decent poster. I think many of us will be watching Rotten Tomatoes for the final verdict.

A large scale original Sci-Fi movie excites me and I'm really looking forward to this. I'm still impressed by Shyamalan's style of direction in many of his movies. We have nothing to gain from crappy movies, so I hope for the best and hope this kicks ass.

Pretty amusing how they dropped the M. Night Shyamalan ad campaign

His name is barely discernible on the poster. No more "FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE SIXTH SENSE and SIGNS" like they used to paste on every one of his damn movies. I guess they finally figured out how badly audiences were getting burned.

Also, this movie looks rubbish, and the poster(s) suck.

I've liked what I have seen so far. I'm willing to give M. Night one more chance at redemption with this film.

I think the movie looks like some top notch sci-fi entertainment. I understand the criticism directed toward M. Night, but most of his detractors just regurgitate the same statements again, and again. "Look, they dropped his name from the poster". It comes off like they actually enjoy complaining, or they don't have anything new to contribute and just want to fit in with other haters. People who don't articulate what they like, but they're very vocal about what they don't like.

The trailer is full of wooden, lifeless dialog, delivered stiffly from somebody who should have natural chemistry with his real-life son. The landscape shots look great. The CGI creatures look fake (especially after seeing what Life of Pi pulled off.) I'm not rooting for failure, but I don't appreciate you pigeon-holing my negativity as trying to "fit in with haters" just so you can validate your own appreciation of a... theatrical trailer.

Maybe it's the haters that are trying to fit in with you because they value your opinion so much and want your approval? I'm sure there are a variety of reasons motivating someone to constantly whine about M. Night, when given the opportunity, or complain about Will Smith and his kid like their presence on the screen is like having a broom handle shoved up the ass. Ahem... they know who they are.

I'm willing to give it a chance. Smith usually signs up for projects that are at least semi-decent, so maybe Shyamalan won't Britta this one.

Fair premise, no reason it can't be good. Tagline is whatever, and I'll skip it in theaters, but i'm not anti shyamalan by any means

Approaching this movie with much trepidation. Hoping it's going to be good but have low expectations. Liked Jaden Smith in Karate Kid and have no problem with Will Smith. My problem is with the director post 'Signs'.

The tagline should be "The movie is real". Audiences be warned.

It is better than the first poster, but It still doesn't encourage me to go see it. I have this feeling that the entire movie will end up like the movie Basic. Those who've seen Basic knows how that ended.
