The planet don’t know who it’s messing with.
The Smiths, Will and Jaden, play father and son (stretching it, boys!) team that crash lands on a wild Planet Earth many, MANY years after we’ve abandoned the hunk of rock. The resulting changes, from the looks of it, might kill the young Smith. Hey, he could always karate kid his way to victory.
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.
Starring Will Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jaden Smith, Zoë Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who needs a hit … BAD. Teaming up with Will “Box Office Gold” Smith was a smart move.
