New pic of Jaden Smith from M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth

Feb. 15, 2012by: Paul Shirey

We posted some set images from M. Night Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH a while ago and now we have a better look at actor Jaden Smith in costume for the sci-fi flick. 

Currently filming in Costa Rica, the pic centers on real-life father-and-son Will and Jaden Smith as they crash land on an abandoned Earth a thousand years in the future.  Jaden's character must fight to survive and save both himself and his injured father.

This is the first image that got my attention as it gives us a look at the direction of the costume design for the film.  We've already established a tropical locale and it seems we can bet on some type of antagonist that puts these characters in danger.  Let's hope it's not Adrian Brody in a wolf costume.

Or, you know, angry nature.

M. Night is hot or cold, it seems.  I loved THE SIXTH SENSE, SIGNS, and UNBREAKABLE.  I even kinda liked THE VILLAGE.  But, man, his last few have been pretty unbearable.  I guess we're all waiting to see if he can bring back the magic.  With screenwriters Stephen Gaghan (TRAFFIC) and Gary Whitta (THE BOOK OF ELI) on board as the writers of this opus, M. Night may well have a fightin' chance this time out.

I believe in M. Night, just as I believe in Harvey Dent.  Here's hoping he doesn't get in over his head and seek a twist ending more so than a full-on entertaining feature. 

AFTER EARTH is currently slated for release on June 7, 2013

Extra Tidbit: The film also stars Zoe Kravitz (above) who is the daughter of singer Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet. She played insect-wings Angel in X-Men First Class. Some lucky kids with good genetics in this pic, eh?

cute..

I'll give this movie a chance though I'm still wondering how the trees survived if the Earth became unlivable.
Hey I just remembered something Jaden's dad and Zoe's mum once acted together in Enemy of the State! (a little something for the IMDb trivia section)

I would be REALLY lookin forward to this

if only Jaden Smith wasn't in it... but hey if he's gonna be constantly forced on us then he's got another chance to change my mind on him... but I swear to god this is the last straw. If he sucks here I won't see a movie he's in in the future even if it's by James Cameron or something. damn!

If the Earth was a barren wasteland instead of a tropical paradise I would give this movie some mild credit. Then I would remember M Night Shymalan's directing it and Will and Jaden Smith are starring in it, and lose all hope.

ah yes, barren wasteland Earth would be better yes. Because that's what so many other movies do. And why do something different right.

Sixth Sense was good. Unbreakable was utterly anti-climactic. And everything else Shyamalan has directed is juvenile. I don't know if you guys were water-boarded while watching his movies, or what.

How can people say this looks amazing so far? Pics of a tropical island and Mini Smith in one of his Dad's reject Hancock suits.

So far this has nothing going for it at all.

I've always thought this is exactly what Shyamalan needed, was to have strong-willed, good collaborators to reign him in. He was out on his own way too much with the last ones, this will do him serious good. He's not an auteur, he's just a director.

Agreed. I think it's what he needs to put him back on track. And from the looks of the pic, so far so good.

Must be hot wearing that rubber (vinyl?) suit in a tropical jungle. He's looking just like his dad, not just the ears.

Maybe Shaymalan pulls this one off? Who knows. The look of the suit it pretty cool actually.

Jaden or Willow will have several children of their own one day who will be force fed down peoples throats by being put in movies or music studios because of their parents money. Those children will have children that do the same. The Smiths turning to turd everything they touch will continue for fucking generations.

M. Night and the Smiths, makes me nervous, but I do like the sounds of the plot. I'll save my full judgement for after a trailer.


And I am liking the looks of Lenny's kid.

People need to stop complaining about him only getting roles because of his dad, suck it up and deal with it life isn't fair stop bitching. Now about the movie I think this could be alright hopefully at least M. Night didn't write it.

I don't see the big deal. How many teenager gets good job because of their dad ? Actor is a job like any other, except it pays more.

@Antoine - Yea they get paper routes or lawn cutting jobs, fast food too. Not3-9 month jobs that pay more than most Americans earn in several years. This kid is a spoiled little shit, nothing special. Like his annoying sister. Two money making machines for mommy and daddy so they can continue to stay in the spot light past their primes via their demented offspring.

While it's not at all a bad pic, the fact M Night's name is attached to it, though, makes me wanna laugh at it...

Not so much the genetic lottery though. He has his dad's ears. Actually he has his entire goofy face.
