Here's a first clip from After Earth - the Will Smith, Jaden Smith sci-fi adventure directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Full synopsis reads:

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.

Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo co-star as sister/daughter and mother/wife respectively.

Stephen Gaghan (TrafficSyriana) was brought on to polish up Shaymalan's script before shooting began, and Columbia Pictures is shooting for a May 31 release.

By the way, as announced over the weekend, a sequel to the film is already being considered, likely depending on how well the first film does globally.

A first clip from the film has surfaced and is embedded below:

    I believe this movie will benefit greatly from overseas box office returns.

    I LOVE Sci-fi, Will, and Jayden. It looks interesting enough to get me in the theater.
