Will and Jaden Smith explore the bond between father and son on a dangerous planet in this trailer for After Earth
This is the second time a trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH has hit during my shift. Does the Hollywood collective sense that I need more convincing on this film? Because, I do.
The final trailer for the film throws out more action and gives a little more character background. I think the story is pretty easy to figure out here: This kids pompous ass father is told by his wife to get his shit together and spend time with his son. Way to flunk out of the Space Academy. Spending time with his son unfortunately is not a trip to the ice cream store and a new video game. Instead, they get on a ship, crash, and end up on what Earth has become after a cataclysmic event. The elements are working against them, and Mother Nature is a harsh mistress. Kind of makes me think about THE HAPPENING.
Check out the trailer below.
Synopsis: 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.
