Here are 2 new clips 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.
Columbia Pictures is has set a May 31 release for the movie.
By the way, as announced last week, a sequel to the film is already being considered, likely depending on how well the first film does globally - emphasis on "globally" because I'm not expecting this to do very well here in the USA, if the trailer and clips I've seen thus far are an indication of what the rest of the film is like.
As I've said before, this looks weak to me!
But I could certainly be wrong, and USA audiences will eat it up!
