New After Earth Clip Features Jaden Smith Trapped In A Bird’s Nest

fb share tweet share

The science fiction film After Earth is one of the biggest question marks of the summer movie season, because there really no telling whether this movie will be good or bad. It stars Will Smith and his son Jaden, it takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, and there seem to be some good visual effects in the film. On the other hand, it was co-written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. This new clip probably won’t sway you either way, but it’s still worth a look. Check the clip out above, featuring Jaden Smith’s Kitai Raige trapped in a bird’s nest.

The one-minute clip is pretty thrilling and perhaps, and is the second focusing on future Earth’s dangerous wildlife. Maybe this movie is nothing but 90 minutes of the Smiths tussling with human-hating critters. That would still make it better than The Happening.


Jaden Smith Fights All The Monkeys In Latest After Earth Clip

Even in the future, even after crash landing on Earth 1,000 years after the last human left the planet, and even when surrounded by a swarm of angry monkeys, teens still don’t want to listen to their fathers. That’s the gist you get from the latest clip — second in as many days — from M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming father-son space adventure After Earth.

This new video features real-life family members Will and Jaden Smith as Cypher (not kidding about that name) and Kitai Raige (not kidding about the last name either). The premise of the film is that the two run their spaceship aground on Earth. While this was once the cradle of all human life, that’s no longer the case. In fact, if Cypher is to be believed, everything on the planet has evolved to kill humans. For now we’ll look past obvious questions, like how things can evolve to kill humans if there are no humans around to kill, and get to the point of this clip.


After Earth Clip Features Will & Jaden Smith In Danger

With a new early release date, After Earth could be the perfect comeback for director M. Night Shyamalan. Although his movies are big box office hits, general audiences and critics are onto Shyamalan’s “surprise” method of storytelling. After Earth has a good premise and a good cast, it just needs to be a good movie. The clip above can shed some insight to what we might get in theaters at the end of May.

The clip features General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) and his son Kitai (Jaden Smith) after they have crashed on Earth. This is the first time in 1,000 years that humans have set foot on their home planet. Their only hope for rescue is if Kitai embarks on a dangerous mission to find the ship’s communication beacon to call for help. The only thing between Cypher and Kitai is 100km (about 62 miles) of alien terrain and deadly animals.


After Earth Writer Says It Will Be Like Jurassic Park Meets King Kong

kitai raigeM. Night Shyamalan returns to theaters this summer with the big-screen sci-fi tale After Earth. Although the film looks stunning, there’s still a big question about this film’s quality. Will Smith has a great on-screen presence, but it looks like After Earth will mainly follow his son, Jaden Smith, instead. As for Shyamalan, well… he’s M. Night Shyamalan. Still, one of the film’s writers is throwing out some pretty ballsy comparisons to earlier films. We’ll see if those claims pan out when the movie opens later this month.

In an interview with SciFiNow, screenwriter Gary Whitta gave audiences a taste of what After Earth can offer them. Whitta compared the upcoming film to two very iconic movies. Whitta says:

Every single thing on this planet will kill you, so Jaden [Smith] has a pretty interesting journey in this movie just trying to stay alive. If you took Jurassic Park and then dumped King Kong into the middle of it, that’s kind of what you have in this environment.

The father/son relationship is at the center of After Earth. Although the film is set in the future, long after humanity has abandoned our homeworld, After Earth is really about Cypher Raige (Will Smith) and his son Kitai (Jaden). Whitta continues:


After Earth Trailer Arrives After Earth Day, Will Smith’s Voice Is Still Silly

In case you missed it, yesterday was Earth Day. Apparently that makes today, April 23rd, After Earth Day, a day set aside to celebrate the latest sci-fi film from M. Night Shyamalan and the father-son team of Will and Jaden Smith. I didn’t get any time off of work, so it couldn’t be much of a holiday. However, we do have a new minute-long trailer.

We already knew that After Earth takes place 1,000 years after the human race was forced to leave our home planet for good, but this video sheds some light on how and why. In the next few decades we’ll screw up the planet so bad that by 2071 we’ll have no choice but to abandon Earth. That is, until the father-son team of Cypher and Kitai Raige (Will and Jaden, respectively, and no, I’m not kidding about those names) crash land on the surface of a planet where every living thing has evolved to kill humans.


After Earth Will Arrive One Week Earlier

Jaden SmithThe M. Night Shyamalan-directed After Earth is yet another chance for the director to prove he’s still got it. The film has an interesting premise involving a father and son (Will Smith and his real-life son Jaden) returning to Earth after humanity was forced to colonize another distant planet. With so many top Hollywood names attached to the post-apocalyptic film, After Earth could be a huge moneymaker for Sony, and now it will be arriving one week earlier, in May instead of June.

According to FirstShowing, Sony has announced that they will be moving After Earth’s release date of June 7th to May 31st. After the release of the Man of Steel trailer, it looks like Superman and Zack Snyder have the movie studio scared. Originally After Earth was supposed to open one week before Man of Steel’s June 14th release date, and now it looks like After Earth will be in a better position to make more money with a two-week lead in. After Earth will now open opposite the magician caper Now You See Me and the dystopian horror film The Purge.

After cataclysmic events, humanity has left Earth behind (sounds like the premise of Oblivion) for a more sustainable planet called Nova Prime. A thousand years later, a military recruit named Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his father, army General Cypher Raige (Will Smith), crash-land on Earth after a disastrous collision with an asteroid. Abandoned and isolated in uncharted terrain, Kitai and Cypher must work together to survive a world inhabited by dangerous plant and animal life that has evolved in humanity’s absence.
