After Earth TV Spot Offers Condensed Version of Trailer

fb share tweet share

There are only a few more days until we get to see if Oblivion matches up to our expectations, and then we can move from Tom Cruise to Will Smith in the category of “1990s box office champions whose films haven’t amazed audiences and critics in quite some time.” And it’s an M. Night Shyamalan film, so 2013 is going to be an exercise in both patience and anger management.

I’m not even sure if there’s anything different going on in the above clip than what was already seen in the other trailer. It gives us the admittedly shocking opening moment where Will Smith gets ripped away from the vehicle they’re traveling in. It shows off the ship/plane’s damage and a fearful Jaden Smith. It spends a few seconds on Kitai (Jaden Smith) and General Cypher (Will Smith) flying around like they bought “Bat-Man” suitsfrom the Acme corporation. And then, of course, we get a look at what a thousand  years has done to a war-ravaged Earth and its creatures.

M. Night Shyamalan’s Name Isn’t On These International After Earth Character Posters

As problematic as both M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith movies can be at times, their new joint venture, After Earth, looks promising, and is getting a decent amount of positive advanced buzz. We’ll have to wait until June 7, 2013 to find out for ourselves, but a couple of new international character posters have arrived on the scene to tease the release.

After Earth Trailer Teases Heart-Stopping Thrills

fb share tweet share

With the release of Oblivion and After Earth, there are two post-apocalyptic sci-fi movies coming out this year. Now the second trailer for After Earth, starring Will and Jaden Smith, has arrived to give us a better look at what to expect. The latest film from director M. Night Shyamalan could be one of the biggest movies of the summer season…or it could be another strike against Shyamalan’s once-promising career. The trailer looks exciting, and it captures the father/son relationship aspects the film will surely center around. Check it out:

After Earth Photo And Poster Lack Excitement

Here are two conversations about the same thing. “Hey, did you see the new picture for that Will Smith movie, After Earth, that’s coming out?” asks one guy. “The one with his son? Yeah, it looks okay, I guess,” says the other. Now let’s take a look at the other way. “Did you see the new picture for that M. Night Shyamalan…” asks the one guy before his friend throws boiling water in his face to make him shut up.

The After Earth Twitter page has unleashed a brand-new image from the film, in which Jaden Smith is — get this — running. Or perhaps he’s just in the middle of lunging, I’m not sure. See the full tweet below.

After Earth Synopsis Adds Aliens Into The Mix

For a while there it felt like we were getting regular doses of information about M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming sci-fi feature After Earth. Lately, however, that stream has run a little dry. You can bet this is something akin to the calm before the marketing storm. The Will/Jaden Smith vehicle is, after all, scheduled to be unleashed upon the world on June 7th, which, in movie terms, isn’t too far off.

IGN has a brand-spankin’ new synopsis for the adventure that shares a few new details about the story:

A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.

I can’t get over the fact that the name of Will Smith’s character is Cypher Raige. That’s priceless.
