‘After Earth’ trailer stars Will Smith and son

Posted: December 10, 2012 in Movies

M. Night Shyamalan’s schtick has worn off over the years, the guy hasn’t made a good movie since Signs and that was nearly 11 years ago.  He was supposed to be the next great filmmaker but it hasn’t quite worked out that way.  However, Shamalama-ding-dong hasn’t teamed up with Will Smith and his son, Jaden, yet.

Enter the upcoming film After Earth, starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith as a father/son tandem that crash lands on Earth some time in the distant future.  The trailer that was just released for the film looks like Avatar meets Jurassic Park with a little Hancock spandex mixed in.  The last film that Will Smith and his son starred in – their first – was The Pursuit of Happyness.  Jaden proved to be a very good child actor in that film and is a bit more grown up from the looks of this trailer.

As with all Shyamalan’s films, you can expect a twist somewhere and thankfully the twist looks to be given away in the trailer.  So there is hope for this one yet.

The movie is out in June 2013.
