Well, the "After Earth" presentation at Comic-Con was easily one of the lowlights of the shindig in San Diego, with director M. Night Shyamalan and stars Will and Jaden Smith not bothering to show up (though M. Night did pop in via pre-recorded video -- hooray). But regardless, the promotional campaign rolls on.
After fairly tepid viral video an equally shrug-worthy poster has landed with Jaden off in the distance overlooking some lush greenery, with some kind of panel or sci-fi whatzits is up in the foreground on a rock. The film is set 1,000 years after cataclysmic events force humanity’s escape from Earth to Nova Prime. Legendary General Cypher Raige (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 (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, giving him a chance to be a soldier like his father. As long as there are no sinister trees, we'll give this a shot on June 7, 2013. [Kinopoisk]
